Samsung vrt front loading washer loud noises and not spinning


The washer tub has dampers to absorb this spin cycle vibration, your machine must have some broken dampers for the tub.

Machine goes out of balance & vibrates on spin cycle


Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.

Tub is off balance


The tub is out of balance. When it starts hitting the sides, stop the washer and move your clothes around inside the tub to balance the tub. Now start it to spin again. This should stop the tub from hitting the sides.

When the washer spins the tub will hit against the back of the washer. IF you stand and hold the edge of the tub it will try to spin correctly


This means the load is out of balance in the drum. Take the clothes out and drop them loosely back in. Try again.
For pillows, always wash two at a time. At spin, place one at either side of the tub.
Heavy clothes, wash in pairs or threes to help balance the load.
The springs on the tub mounts may be stretched or worn out. This is a tough job. A washer technician can do this for you.

Is off balance during the spin cycle mor often


I have a 10yr old Maytag Atlantis model MAV7258AWW. Here is how I solved my balance problem. It appeared that I had two problems. One was that it would not spin fast, the second was that it would spin off balance. To get the washer to spin fast like it should I had to open the lid then close it, re-engaging the spin cycle. I opened the top and watched the motor engage in the spin cycle. with the top open, I would open and close the lid activating the lid switch. Each time I closed the lid I noticed that the motor would move a little bit more on its glides to tighten the belt. Sort of like a automatic adjuster. The motor is designed to pivot one way for the agitator the other way for spin. If the motor does not pivot correctly, the belt will not tighten and will slip. I removed the front panel, cleaned and lubed the pivot area. Now the motor glides on the pivots like it should. I ran the spin cycle and the motor slid all the way to one side like it should, the belt tightens and the spin cycle spins. Now that the spin cycle works, quess what?? The balance problem is fixed as well. It appears that the reason that the tub was going off balance was because the belt was slipping not spinning the tub at maxium speed as designed causing the off balance problem. The tub was not spinning fast enough causing the off balance problem. I have ran several loades in the washer and not a problem. I did replace the snubber, it was worn out but it still spun off balance. I hope this helps to all who have a balance problem.

GE Washer Tub has sunk and is grinding on bottom


I had the same problem and as near as I can tell, we ran a load the was simply too big and the upper chasis "droooped" just enough from the weight to cause the metal to bow. As a result, the bottom of the tub assembly was rubbing against the lower metal chasis, creating a loud grinding noise. Metal filings indicated the wear point. I took a piece of wood that is about 1"x3x height and wedged it in front and slightly to the left of the motor, running straight, up and down. the board stands straight to take out the bowing- lifting the tub about 1/4" more. This was just enough to provide the clearance needed to prevent grinding. If the vertival board is too long, you won't be able to get the front cover back on.

OFF BALANCE WHILE SPINNING


spin the drum with hand to hear any noise from the bearings on the back of the drum, the drum should turn freely with no grating noise.

Unstable tub


There are springs inside the unit that stablize the tub during spin. If the springs are not attached correctly the tub will be off balance. Sometimes the Balance Ring loses it's fluid due to a crack or leak and the washer will spin off balance. THis requires a service tech to dissemble the machine.
