Whirpool top loader unbalanced spin cycle

I have a Whirlpool top loader washing machine about 14 years old. It washes fine but when it starts spinning it gets violently out of balance. You can see the front panel of the machine being hit by the drum. If you move the load around inside, it gets slightly better but still makes a lot of noise. I have the machine firmly set on all four feet, but it actually feels as if there is not enough resistance on the drum. I turned it over and expected to fine some broken springs or something but was rather dissapointed to see nothing wrong.

    My washing machine seems to be balanced and is stable but during the spin cycle it jumps around so much that the whole downstairs ceiling is shaking. I had a repairman go look at it today and he couldn't find anything wrong and didn't even see it jumping around. It jumps around EVERY time I wash, no matter how big or small the load.

First change the springs - both the leveling and suspension. You may also need to change a few other parts on the brake and drive tube including the thrust ring. But replace the springs and let see what happens.

The load might be unbalanced, and will not spin at full speed as it could damage the machine. Try reloading the machine

Goodluck,

When the washer displays uL when spinning?


'Unbalanced Load' occurs when the machine detects that one side of the tub is heavier than the other.
This most often happens when heavy and/or large items become pushed to one side of the tub during the wash and become much heavier when the spin cycle engages.
This is more often seen in 'tub' style machines rather than front loaders.
Usually the machine has a safety system which shuts down the spin cycle and 'buzzes' to alert you to reach in and move things around in order to rebalance the load.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired


Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

Whirlpool 6245e top loader machine does not spin or wash at all


Hope that no money is required.\
Check the drive belt between the motor and the transmission. If wet or oily or loose, correct the problem and test.

If leaking water, you may have a loose hose fitting, check them with a flashlight while running a test cycle. If not a hose, then a seal (not practical to repair yourself).

FINAL NOTE: DO NOT spend more than 75 dollars to repair a 3 year old or older washing machine. You can buy a used one that works fine for 50 to 75 dollars on Craigs List or other local web site.

Best of luck. -Jim

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
