Whirlpool Duet front load washer tub is cocked or sagging

28 June 2013 - 11:22 AM

My wife was washing clothes when she heard a loud boom and when she went to the washer it was in the spin cycle and was vibrating badly and spinning at a faster than normal pace. When shut down she could smell burning rubber from where the top of the tub was rubbing the grey rubber seal. When I got home and checked it out it appears the whole tub is sagging in the back and there is about a 1/2" gap at the bottom between the tub and the grey seal and the top is right against the seal and slightly above it. The stainless basket is not loose from the tub so was thinking the spider arm may not be the issue. Shock absorbers are not broke nor the springs but not sure how to tell if they are just worm out are give causing the boom sound. looking in at the machine you can see the stainless basket rim and tub with the gap at the bottom and at the top you can't see the rim or tub as it is up against the rubber seal and slightly above it. Will try to post a picture when i figure out how. Thanks in advance.
