I have recently moved and ever since my washer has been acting up.  During the spin cycle the washer makes a high pitched squeal.  It also jumps around and walks forward. THe drum must be out of alignment! I have tried lifting the drum, but there seems to be no pins to drop.  THe drum moves in all directions and doesn't seem to want to stay in center.  I have tried placing the feet level, but that also dos not seem to be the problem. Please help me!

Assuming there is a 110. before this model number meaning this is a Whirlpool built washer, it sounds like someone was rough with this washer or laid it down and broke one or more of the brown glide tabs that the slide plate slides on down under the tub in the base of the washer.   The insides of the washer should move around freely but should stay in an upright postion at rest.

Thank you for the advice and the ideas for what is wrong with my washer. Now if you can help me find the brown glide tabs. Do I need to take the tup off of the base? If not where are the tabs and how do I get to them? Maybe a picture would solve my problems!

 

Thanks again!

The brown tabs can be seen if you lay the washer on its back with the case off and lift up on the slide plate carefully with a pry bar but do not damage that plate.  There are 3 brown tabs that just push into place on the 3 corners.  I will see if I can find a photo in here for you but do not know where in this site that might be.  Perhaps someone who knows where a photo of this might be can post it here??

Here is a photo I found.  The brown tabs go under the white triangle plate below the fiberglass tub.  You can carefully pry up the white plate and see if all 3 brown tabs are there and pop in new ones if they are broken, worn, or missing.  Pegi
