SOURCE: Kenmore Oasis top load always out of balance and bangs

First just to let you know, the oasis is very sensitive to the load level and water ratio if its too heavy the load has to be perfectly balanced inside the tub. Next check to see if any of the straps are broke. The next thing is that the newtator has tighted up all on its own so when it spins the newtator grabs the tub while it spins at high speed. I have never had to fix this but i know it is a common problem. I hope i helped a little. Good luck!

SOURCE: washer out of balance when spinning

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=90fdc122f6335c7c64f46f2ea1b1c887


Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf


If it's not the springs or pads, you may consider that the "Agitator Cams" in the transmission are not raising the Agitator Gear high enough (about 1/16" ) when the washer goes into spin mode.

See the description of what the Cams do in the Service Manual.

We had the same problem, excessive vibration and noise during the spin cycle.

In order to solve that problem, :

Assuming that you know how to remove the cabinet, agitator (you don't need to remove the tub), pump, motor and transmission the agitator cam and follower use the same whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

It sounds a bit complicated but it really isn't too bad and (For a $15 part, saved buying a $170 transmission.)

Following is the Whirlpool parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models use the same part numbers.

LG Tromm Steam Washer Cycle is complete and the stuff is so wet that they have to wrung by hand to even put they on a clothes line. Can washer be put on spin only? How?


call a technician as it indicates that the cycle from rinse, spin is not progressing to spin only
rinse,spin is a low speed spin to facilitate the rinse and to balance out the clothes ready for the fast speed spin cycle

Why does the Drum spin erratic even without clothes in it?


might be a warped spin basket or the dampers could need to be replaced. could even be a bad spin bearing. if it was bearing, normally would be associated with a loud noise during the spin cycle though.

Will not spin the clothes dry it's seem it is not balanced ?


You may have One wet heavy item (one sweatshirt or one bath towel) that is not evenly dispersed within the wash tub, and this will prevent the machine from reaching and completing the spin cycle.

Drum is loose during Spin and Rinse cycle and banging against side of washer


If it is under warranty, call Whirlpool at 1-866-698-2538. If it is out of warranty, try running the washer with no clothes in it in spin cycle. If it runs fine empty, it may be that when you had clothes in it they were not balanced evenly in the tub. If it runs off balance when empty, then a spring may have broken or come off. Contact an appliance repairman.

If the washer is shaking and actually going out of balance and generating the UL error and the drum is empty the most likely cause of this problem is something under the spin basket.Clothes can end up under the spin basket and cause it to turn crocked and cause the out of balance. First I'd recommend removing the spin basket and check under it for any clothing or other obstruction that might cause the out of balance. Here is a diagram of how to Check.. Click Here

Spins out of balance even emty

http://www.repairclinic.com/Washing-Machine-Troubleshooting


This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

Shake when spins even when no clothes in it


Make sure the lags are solid to the floor. Any bit of difference will be exagerate when the washer spins. put a piece of paper under each of the front legs. While the washer is spinning try and pull the paper out. If you can pull the paper out with no problem, that leg needs adjusted to the floor more. If Ican help further, please let me know

Machine not spinning due to uneven load balance although clothes are loaded evenly initially


I suggest you stick to the maximum load capacity (or less) of the machine; and not over-load the machine with clothes.
