Make sure that the clothes in the washing machine are of similar fabrics ( cotton: polyester: wool, etc) do not mix cotton with polyester because cotton will absorb more water that Polyester during the wash cycle, and put the machine out of balance during the spin cycle.
If this does not work, it could be that one of the tub suspension damper units is worn, and not doing its job of stabilizing the load.
If the machine is making a lot of unusual banging noises, during spin, it could be that one of the counter balance weights that are attached to the tub, have become loose or detached, which will also give the same effect as an out of balance load.
I hope this helps?

Out of balance switch will not stop washer when load becomes out of balance.


Your switch is bad. You don't necessarily need the switch. Snip the wires off either side of the switch and fuse them together with a wire connector.

When spinning, Out of balance message occurs, then the machine starts to add water to get the load out of balance. It will put additional time on the wash cycle. It will drain and try to spin again. Then...


it could be weak shocks for the drum or the springs. you can also overload the washer. there should be a gap in filling washer with clothes around 5-to 6 cm's on the drum ring this gives space for movement and balancing. the washer can also become out of balance if the bearing is damaged, if you can lift the drum from the bottom of the ring and it moves up and down by few millimeters and feels lose then its usually a sign the bearing is weak. this can make the display say there is a problem with balance. 6kg or 7kg is the weight of the clothes and water not the clothes. over loading the washer damages the bearings and put more pressure on the shocks and springs.

My washer is out of balance when spinning.


Hi,
Your problem is probably much more than the washer being out of balance. The front load washers have shock absorbers that hold them from moving all over the place. These have a habit of breaking. Then the drum hammers and sounds like things are flying apart. Pull the bottom front off and check the shocks. Typically the rings where the pins go throuhg are where they will break. Sometimes at first they look okay and you have to grab them and move them to see that they are broken.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load


The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

During final spin cycle a code that says DC of balance load and there is a bang from the tube


The DC code that comes up is just saying that the load is "off balance" to resolve this, open the washer and redistribute the last and restart.

The bang fron the tub that you hear is just from the load being off balance. Generally it's just the weight difference on the tub when the washer stops spinning. This is normal for an off balance load and is nothing to be overly concerned about.

If you are getting the DC code a lot, take a look at the types of loads you are washing. Are they small? Is it a mix of small and large items? Is it a few large items? This may be the answer to why you are having off balance issues. The Neptune is a very large washer, and can get off balance very easily with smaller loads. Try making loads larger or if you are washing for example sheets, try washing them in 3's. This will make it easier for the washer to balance the load.

Good luck! Please let me know if this was helpful!

Washer unbalanced apparently


There is supposed to be a load balance sensor which detects out of balance loads then reverses the motor to re-balance and try again. If your washer is chunking along out of balance, perhaps the sensor is not operating properly. I have heard rumors of bad electronics with The Axxis.
