We have a 5 year old frigidaire mdl fws833as1 clothes washing machine. It seems to be unable to spin without being unbalanced. It has not been a problem until recently. Is there something that has loosened up or needs adjustment?
is your washer on a wood floor? does the floor bounce when you jump up and down? sometimes floors get weak and the washer can start moving more.

Reply to a1speedyappliance's Post: No the washer is on a very stable tile over plywood floor. There is no floor movement.
okay , does the tub feel realy loose moves back and forth real easy?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Yes is moves back and forth freely but not sloppily. It pivots from the the top to bottom with marginal resistance.
