Kenmore Oasis / Whirlpool Cabrio / Maytag Bravo Washer Continually Goes out of Balance

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


Has anyone ran into this problem before? The washer is level and the suspension is good yet the machine continually faults out of balance with loads of all sizes. When load is rearranged the problem persists. I ran it in service mode with no problems, no stored faults, not unusually wobbly. Any suggestions?


You need to replace all 4 of the suspension rods as a kit. Even though they look all right, they aren't.

And here's how to install it:
