Our whirlpool calbrio washer does not spin properly. Even on low speed, loads become unbalanced and machine does not shut itself off as it should when becoming unbalanced. This washer is 5 yrs old. Did not do this in past. Any ideas?

Becomes unbalanced in spin cycle washing loads not expected to become unloaded (whites, etc); no obvious differences in weights of wet load components? Happens almost every load even using spin speed of low.

I did respond. Not sure why you didn't receive it.

We bought the kit and replaced the rods. It was do-able, but not easy! That
washer drum is heavy, and it's hard to thread the rods thru the bushing. Esp
with all the grease, it's hard to keep a good grip.

Thanks for your help. We tried to get a service tech to come to our house,
but he couldn't hit a 5-hr time slot. Ended up wasting an entire day waiting
on him to show!

Thanks again,

I am glad you were able to get it done, Have a great day!!!
