Be sure the 4 screws that hold pedistal to bottom are tight ..next lower washer all the way down run all 4 feet up as far as possible next adj front legs until washer is firm on floor and has no motion when manually rocked ..tighten lock nuts to upper limit of legs to keep them from backing out if still have excess motion try adj 1 leg at a time while in spin ..also possible weak floor ..these machines are quite heavy and need solid flooring..also machine may rock some at low rpm but usually steady at max

I have a new (had it two weeks) GHW9150HP and now the clothes are soaked like they did not go through the spin cycle. The washer also seems do not be level since is vibrates so mch that is 'wonders'...


As far as the vibration goes, check to make sure that the machine is leveled. Also check to make sure that the shipping bolts have been removed. On every spin cycle, the machine goes the a process to check if it is balanced or not. If the machine senses that it is unbalanced, it will stop the cycle. So that could be why your clothes are coming out soaked. try this solution first, if the problem continues, let me know and we can try a different solution, perhaps putting your machine in diagnostic mode.

Vibrates, shakes and moves around and has a lot of noise while spinning. It has been leveled and the floor seems sturdy enough.

The washer needs to have the auto leveling legs reset.

The message you're getting "ul" means "unbalanced load" and usually results when washing lots of towels or lots of jeans, etc., basically large fabric that holds quite a bit of water.

In order to get the washer leveled, you will need to stand at the front of it and reach to the back sides and tilt the washer towards you, keeping the front of the washer on the floor and tilting/lifting the rear of the washer about 4-5 inches off the floor. Once you've got it up, just let go of the washer and it will hit the floor and self level the rear legs.

You can then use the adustable front feet to get the washer stabilized so it doesn't more all around when doing laundry. Try not to lift the washer much when adjusting the two front corner feet. The goal is get the washer stable and solidly planted on the floor so it doesn't move around when running.

Hope this was very helpful and best regards!

It sounds like basket support failure. How old is the machine? They usually **** at around 5 to 6 years. Unless you are going to fix it yourself or it's under extended warranty, junk it.

The repair requires a complete teardown of the washer. two to six hours labor depending on tech skill level.

Welcome hendrik,
You said, jumping around during spin cycle


How old is your GHW9150 washer?

Usually it is overload or load unbalanced due to uneven load.You must stop the machine and re-distribute the load and or weight!

Here are some Whirlpool reasons for you.
But if nothing helps you may have a mechanical problem to be serviced!


Try these ideas first!

Is the load balanced?

A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.
Washer makes noise or vibrates
Is the washer level?
The washer must be level. The four feet should be properly
installed, and the nuts should be tightened against the
washer cabinet.
As water is drained from the washer, you may hear air being
pulled through the pump. This happens during the end of
draining. It is normal.
Are you washing items with metal snaps, buckles or zippers?
You may hear metal items touching the washer drum. This is
normal.
Is washer installed on a sturdy and solid floor?
Refer to the “Installation Instructions” for flooring
requirements. Noise and vibration may be reduced by placing
a piece of ¾" (19.1 mm) plywood underneath your washer.
The plywood may extend underneath both washer and dryer
to keep them at equal heights.
Let me know If you have any questions and what happens!!!
Huuum

Whirlpool duet sport..vibrates during spin and "walks"..on pedistal.sitting on tile


I just bought this washer and had two problems with it. 1 the vibration at medium spins and 2. a squeeking spring (every time the drum rotates a little squeek, but when spinning the squeek sounds constant.

What I discover in solving both my problems with the same solution. I had to ensure all 4 feet well on the ground and that the top of the washer was perfectly level. At one time I was out only about 2 mm on one side, but the bubble was slightly to one side on the level but still in between the level's markers. I tested with a load, and both problems were still there. Turn feet 1/2 turn on the side needing adjusting. Ran another load and you guessed it, no squeak, no vibration, spinning was quiet, I had to go over to check to see if the machine was going through the cycles. I couldn't believe that a few millimeters could make such a difference.

Now I am pleased with the performance, not to mention how clean the clothes are and the savings on water and drying.
