Whirlpool washing machine

Our Whirlpool LSN2000LW washing machine just started to go out of balance when a "normal" size load is in its spin cycle. It will not if my wife puts in 1/2 of a normal load. I've checked the machine and its level side to side and front to back. The machine also sits on a concrete floor. Any suggestions of what could be causing this????

    I have a whirlpool Model WTW4800XQ1 Serial C12122855. It has started getting off balance on every spin cycle. Is it possible the Spring support system is wore out causing this? Or what is the most likely cause?

Check that the machine ramps up to spin speed reasonably and distributes the clothes- ie doesn't spring straight up to spin speed. if this is ok then the fault may well be the shock absorbers located at the bottom of the machine and going from base to tub. check also that the counterweights are intact

I have a Whirlpool top loading washer #5560SQ0. Repetitive, quick thumping sound at the end of spin cycle - spinnning down.

More likely uneven loading, or stretched shock absorber springs. Do a very small load of things like socks, undies and facecloths that will self balance.

Washing machine not spinning

HI! base in your complaint and explanations! i find the problem is the motor belt... maybe this is too loose belt... you can replaced a new one replacement belt... and make sure when you replace the belt is the same size in the original!

What will cause my Whirlpool washing machine to set on low speed spin cycle?

The machine uses automatic load sensors to balance the load and when you put something in the machine that is big, like a comforter, it knows that it cannot balance that item. So with a front loader it wont spin at high speed because it would be off balance and either damage the machine or the machine would "walk" because of the off balance motion.

My washer is leval but continues to display ul code when spin cycle starts

UL does not mean the washing machine unit itself is unlevel, it means the load cannot be balance, possibly washing too small a load that the machine cannot distribute in drum evenly ( happens alot when only one or two items being washed), could be poor pump out (check filters if accessible) the machine tries to start spin with excess water or maybe it is a mixed load, lots of small items and maybe one or two large items that hinder the distribution. My machine is very temperamental when I do the sheets, because they get tangled during the wash part of the cycle and then the machine cannot get them balanced to spin. I sometime have to manual move the item about and then put it to the spin only cycle.Hope this helps

Whirlpool front load washer won't spin - just sometimes

Most Whirlpool (Hotpoint) machines have "out of balance" sensors that detect very large movements of the drum suspension usually due to a very badly balanced washing load.
This can occur for various reasons but putting large and/or heavy items in can trigger these sensors i,f as the machine starts to spin, the items dont get distributed evenly around the drum. This is more likley with large/heavy items.
The machine will then restrict the spin speed for the remainder of the wash cycle, and once the machine is switched off, the next time the machine is used it returns the spin speed back to normal - but if it detects an out of balance situation, it will again restrict the spin speed.
It sounds to me the machine is acting as designed. You could try positioning the items differently as you load them, and hope they dont end up "all over one side".

Washer goes into unbalance mode

Check the springs and spring mounts,(might be broken or not on right), also could be something wrong with the balance switch (where the tub hits the switch).It could be mis aligned or defective. Check the springs first.
