Question about Speed Queen CTSA0AWN Front Load Washer

Open Question

Hello! Can you tell me what's going on when your

Hello! Can you tell me what's going on when your washer wants to act like R2-D2 and 'walk' across the floor during the rinse/spin cycle? In almost every load, small or large, our washer makes this loud sound similar to a small plane's engine. It continues during the spin cycle and the maching literally moves the 1-2". If there are any objects on top they come crashing to the ground. Is there a problem in the balance of the clothes? If so, does this throw the drum out of place? Is there anything we can do to control this or should we consult with a local appliance person? Thank you for your time and look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Midge Carstensen Redmond, WA

It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems

I don't know if this is a new washing machine or not, but I would recommend is getting a few small thin boards and making sure the machine is level. If this doesn't work there could be a bad sensor, but that doesn't seem like the case to me as moving the machine a little gets it to restart.

SOURCE: Machine making loud noise on spins cycle

Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.

Did you remove the shipping bolts from the back of the washer? They are located on the back, usually very clearly marked "REMOVE" and have a red or yellow plastic washer/bushing. This is a fairly common problem with front load washers, from what I understand.

They're big suckers, and they keep the drum suspension from absorbing any vibration (so the drum doesn't slam around during shipping). Good luck!
