My 10 year-old washer started acting up about a month ago - wasn't spinning very much during the spin cycle. I had someone come out to work on it. He replaced the motor, and that seemed to do the trick. Don't know if that has anything to do with the problem, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Two days ago, it started shaking like crazy during the spin cycle. I called the tech back to see if he had any ideas, and he's gone out of business. :yikes: Ah, well, I knew I should have just fixed it myself.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing the problem? I took the cabinet off, the drain and the motor. The coupler between the motor and what I assume is the transmission looks fine - like new. There are three horizontal springs and one vertical spring, all intact and taut. I've exhausted my (very) limited knowledge. Anyone else have any ideas?

TIA,

Lee

well if the cabinet wasn't locked in right the machine will shake, also make sure both front feet still have the rubber pads attached, then make sure the back feet still self level, they are spring loaded and work like a teeter-totter, one side goes up other goes down

grasp inside of inner tub and pull up one side then other it should feel tight and not clang around

start there, post back.... cause next we get to the fun stuff that yee of limited knowledge will have to consult the manuals of infinite wisdom for

ha ha i think i made a funny there, one more beer and i'll read it again, then for sure it'll be funny and the spelling will prolly look better too.

The cabinet was locked in tight, and the feet seemed fine.

When I lift or push on the tub, it doesn't clang around. It's moves, but it's not completely loose - it requires a bit of effort. :?

Thanks,

Lee

I started to take it apart some more to see if I could find anything obviously wrong. I took the agitator off, and checked out the metal drive shaft thingy(tecnical term, i know). It looked ok, not too worn out. I looked for the white pads that are supposed to be under the tub. I found one and it looked like knew. I'm guessing the repair guy might have replace it.

I got the repair order off m wife and found that he had replaced the clutch, not the motor, which she had thought. I guess my next step is to take the tub off and see if I see anything else that looks bad?

In the end, I couldn't find the problem. I put it back together, and as long as the load isn't too big the vibration is limited. I was hoping that this would get me through to the weekend, until I could go get a new one. Unfortunately, after two loads, my dryer broke. :yikes: 

Someone up there doesn't like me. :?
