WTW6400SW0..........This Cabrio washing machine has developed a severely off balance condition.

Tried mixing loads of laundry.

Tried smaller loads.

Tried heavier loads.

Tried all one type of load(just towels)(just jeans) etc.

You can re-distribute the load several times and may or may not get a good balanced spin.

What am I overlooking?

Thanks guys.

Guess I will be pulling the tub and stator  to see what is going on.

The rods looked OK,but I will double check them against a straight edge.

even if the rods arnt bent they can be bad...push down on the tub, when you let go it should just pop back up, if it bounces its bad.  its hard to describe, i just know what they feel like when there bad, but the point is they can be straight and still be bad

That thread linked by Durham discusses the balance rings, which are fluid filled. This is the case also with Whirlpool DD. Sort of like hydrostatic flywheels. But there is apparently a coefficient of weight-of-basket to weight-of-balance-ring fluid. If any fluid leaks out you get wild-ass gyrations instead of nice smooth spin. This explains the problem we've had with three successive Whirlpool DD's, I do believe. Nothing worked to correct the hippy-shakes - not pads, not springs, not lube, not nothing.

 

Fortunately on DD's, no harm is done. They can fandango right across the floor to the other side and come back for more. Right now I've got one that even broke a weld to the cover and it still soldiers on. Woe to anything that gets in the way, of course.

 

Cabrio, I don't know. Maybe they self destruct that way.


First, do no harm.
