Does the balance ring have water in it? I have heard of some that the balance ring breaks and can cause this.

Make sure unit is draining properly and that tub is engaging and disengaging during transition from wash to spin.

The tub need to be able to float on the unit, Whirlpool likes to use different solenoid and have a big Log Valve for the water inlet. The last one I saw wasn't filling with one of the solenoids and would get off balance.

Here's the valve.

Here's the tech sheet to check all of the solenoids.

Just had teck go back out yesterday and was going to give more info.

 

He did hear water in top ring ( we were thinking that also), he said that it will start to spin when draning and that when all the water is out it starts to bang off balance really bad.

not sure about this, are they suppose to start-stop-start-stop for a while?

Sorry not sure why filling with water would make it off balance at spin cycle?

I thought about this one today before I got home, going to see what others think also.

Hi Spanner,

 

Can you help about the water valve making it off balance, home owner is betting a little pissed now.

The unit will start to spin with water in it.

Thanks

If any of the valves are bad the tub will not float for the agitate and the whole tub will jerk and getting the off balance code. This will not cause it to be off balance for the spin cycle though.
