Whirlpool Cabrio washer. When spinning shuts down for unbalanced

This answer was rated:

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.

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:

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 :

esequiel walker :

esequiel walker :

Customer:

esequiel walker :
