WHIRLPOOL CABRIO WASHER. WHEN SPINNING SHUTS DOWN FOR UNBALANCED…

May 20, 2011

Question:

Whirlpool Cabrio washer. When spinning shuts down for unbalanced load. Does this almost every time. I redistribute the clothers and restart. 30 seconds later same thing. Did this 7 times in a row last load of laundry. The inner drum seams to move side to side too easy. bangs against washer walls real hard and then shuts off with unbalanced code.

Answer:


esequiel walker :

hi there the tub is sustained by three suspension springs it is designed bad

esequiel walker :

the idea they say is that when it spins it will eventually self center the load

Customer-vt9dzzja- :

its suspended by four rods connected to springs, but sways side to side very easy and bangs the sides of the washer.

esequiel walker :

yes

esequiel walker :

that is the designed of this washer

esequiel walker :

many customers have this issue

esequiel walker :

can i get a model number

Customer-vt9dzzja- :

it did not do this when we first bought this. it worked well first couple years, now we can’t do one load without resetting a dozen times.

esequiel walker :

can i get a model number

Customer-vt9dzzja- :

model #wtw6200sw2

esequiel walker :

esequiel walker :

unless those springs are no longer holding tension

esequiel walker :

then its not resisting the weight of the tub

esequiel walker :

are you there

Customer-vt9dzzja- :

yes

esequiel walker :

did you get the picture and what i wrote

esequiel walker :

one of those springs or the components on them are bad or worn

Customer-vt9dzzja- :

yes I’ve looked up those parts before. they seam to be in good shape. but they dont have a load on them right now. I have the back off the washer and im looking at them now

Customer-vt9dzzja- :

can i order just the 4 springs and replace them and see if that works?

esequiel walker :
