Friend has a 5 month old GE washer.  Has it under warranty & had a factory authorized serviceman diagnose it as being out off balance.  Still out of balance cause it still bounces around.   Serviceman is coming back tomorrow & friend  ask me if I knew why it rocks & rolls so he can relay it. 

 

  Got any ideas why?  I told him to run it in the rinse cycle with an empty load.  Friend used low water level   called me and informed me that he was a rough spin although not as rough as when loaded with clothes.  If the support rods weren't connected correctly I am sure the service man would have noticed.

I have had a real rash of these puppies with the concrete counter-weight loose...makes it shake like a hell .

Not sure how he would have missed that but..
As every cockroach knows , thriving on poisons is the secret of success.
