I bought a scratch and dent Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6200SW and during the spin cycle it is shaking real bad and becoming unlevel even with small loads.
I just bought the exact same model this weekend that I found used in the classifieds. The person who sold it to me said it worked, but when I got it home and hooked it up, it did exactly what yours did, even with no laundry in it. It would get to the spin cycle and start banging around violently like it had a brick in it. I even used an electronic level to make sure it wasn't uneven on the floor. From doing a little research on the web, i read that the suspension could have gone faulty. I took it out and set it up in my garage and hooked a hose up to the cold to see it run a small cold water load with the back panel off so I could observe what was going on inside. From what I observed, the suspension springs were sprung and some worse than the others. I am going to order a replacement set from Sears tomorrow and replace them to see if the unbalanced problem goes away. Removing them is a cinch and should take about a half hour to do all four and put everything back together. I will let you know if my unbalance problem goes away.
