Hi - I dont know how to go about this one!!!! - Specialist tools are used to fix these machines.

- With machine off open the lid & try to turn the bowl inside to answer your question above.

Chances are you have a bearing failure fixed at the centre of the brake unit, or a faulty brake unit.

Both of which is simple to repair if you have the right tool and parts, would normally take me about 10mins to do.

This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

Hello. I have a few ideas for you.
1. Tilt the machine forward so the back feet are 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) off the ground, then set it back down. The back feet usually are self-leveling--just raising and lowering the machine like this will cause the feet to re-level themselves.
2. Place your level perpendicular to the front of the machine and check to see if the washer is level in this direction. If it is off, readjust each front foot by the same number of turns until you reach level.
3. Go to the carpet store and buy a remnamt which is the size of the washing machine lengthxwidth. Place this under the machine with the four legs all resting on the carpet.
Regards, Joe

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and just happened to see that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer, a front load washer, or a dishwasher, I suggest you
go directly to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as many other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair nformation on most washers and dryers, dishwashers and many other household appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer on a washer, they hardly ever go bad. I realize I haven't solved your problem for you, but I hope I have sent you to a place that will help you solve the problem. Good luck with it.

Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back. Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.) Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.

Has there been any changes in it's hook-ups recently ?

The reason I ask is this, there are alot of variables that can cause unbalanced rinse cycles/washer's, one being if your water lines are reversed, hot tap to cold inlet and cold tap to hot inlet, you can experience an unbalanced situation in the rinse when "hot" water is introduced instead of "cold" water.

That, or you may also have extremely worn damper pads, oil on the chassis base, un level machine/floor, overloading, or several other possible senario's to cause an out of balance situation.

That's a start. Hope it helps, let me know please.

Good Luck

The water pump recirculates water during the wash cycle and pumps it out for the spin cycle. Some washers use the recirculation to mix and distribute add-ins like bleach or fabric softener. In some models the spin cycle starts while the water is still in the tub; others drain first before the spin cycle starts.

For the the initial filling of the tub, the pump is not involved. Filling the tub is the job of the water inlet valve. The rinse cycle is also done with fresh water supplied by the inlet valve, although the water pump may be running simultaneously to remove the water while it is being added.

There are two types of pumps; direct drive and belt drive. The direct drive is mounted directly to the motor, the belt drive is mounted to the chassis. The direct drive style can be opened for complete inspection while belt drive models may or may not be designed to be opened. You can however, still remove the hoses and inspect the ports for a blockage or loose connections that may be causing a leak. Inspecting the pump is fairly easy to do, but you will most likely have to open the washer's cabinet.

Typically one of three problems occur with the pump. The first is a blockage in the pump, often from small items like a sock. The second possibility is that the impeller blades become broken or worn down and cannot move water efficiently. Next, in belt drive models, if the belt is loose or broken it does not turn the pump. Finally, Your pump may leak if there is a loose hose or cracked pump housing.In this case, it must be replaced.

Locate the pump, it will have two, three or four hoses. Label each hose and where it connects. The hoses should each have a wire clamp or a hose clamp with a screw. Pinch the wire tabs together with pliers and wiggle the clamp farther up the hose. Screw style hose clamps are simply loosened by turning the screw, then slide the clamp up the hose. Now remove the hose from the port.

Direct drive pumps have metal clips that hold the cover plate unto the pump assembly. Use a screwdriver to pry up the clips and remove the cover. Pull off the pump's impeller unit and inspect for damage.

Belt drive pumps vary and may or may not be designed to open for repair. Examine the pump to determine whether it can be opened. If it cannot be opened, look into the ports for any blockage.

If there are no blockages, the actual leak may be in a damaged hose or pump housing may be compromised. check all hoses for good connections and good hose integrity. if the hoses are not leaking, replace the pump.
