Excessive wobbling during spin cycle

excessive wobbling during spin cycle

Try to run the unit through a spin cycle without any clothes inside---does it still wobble and go out of balance during spin?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. Only when clothes are in the machine. As I said, I'm not doing anything different than I have for the past five years when it worked perfectly. Is there some kind is structural support inside that may have worn out?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

There are shocks below the tub and suspension springs above the drum. You'll need to Make sure the springs are attached above the drum and if that checks good, either one of the shocks has broken or they are just worn out and the shocks would need to be replaced below the drum.
