Whirlpool Washing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Depending on the age of the machine there could be a number of factors going on here. There are shock absorbers in the machine that maintain balance of the drum while it is spinning. Sitting on top of the drum there is usually a large concrete block and some springs attached that limit the machines away from side to side and backwards and forwards. All of these parts work in conjunction with one another to stop or limit excessive vibration of the drum during a spin cycle. If these are worn or are degraded excessively then this could account for the extra vibration. It could also be that the machine is being overloaded which would cause this vibration too. As for the plastic that is tough to pin down. Ideally we could do with images of the plastic to advise you further.

Check that the door seal is on properly. There is a spring that goes around the seal to hold it on

Perhaps the main circuit board or motherboard? It wouldn't hurt to check it out and look closely at all of the little "pathways" between the various components, it's highly probable that the intense vibration and movement caused a solder joint to come loose or a component may not be connected as it should be. Break out your voltmeter and use the continuity tester to your advantage to verify circuits are completed as they should be. I'd imagine you'll find an issue, if not my apologies but that's been the case in my experience more than once. Best of Luck Friend!

Maybe its because youre timer

Disconnect it from the mains supply for 5 minutes. Then restart the cycle. It should pump out. Then you can power off and restart from scratch.

Open the door, put your hand in and onto the top of the inner drum. Push upwards, if it moves upwards for more than a few millimeters it is probably the bearings worn.

The dispenser is flushed with water to prevent clogging with softener residue.

The weblink may not be to someone in your area, but he makes a good point - the system says the water is draining too slowly and that could also be an issue outside of the machine - is the drain line connected to the house drain clean? Is the house drain clear ? Did you suck up and dry to pump something that it shouldn't?
And as well, like the link suggests, can you somehow hold the Motor shaft on the pump and ensure that the impellor is still attached and moving with the motor shaft - That could be damaged or maybe it could be like a small boat motor where the shear pin is called that specifically - if the motor is getting tied up in weeds, the shear pin does just that and sheers off so that impeller stops moving but the motor is not damaged - could you have sheered off the pin between the pump impellor and the pump motor shaft?
Good Luck
