Hi. I also have violent instability when on spin cycle. In regular mode it drains but wont enter into the spin cycle. No error codes are given. In test mode it spins ok with out any load on both slow and fast setting. With small towel and larger wet towel it goes completely out of control.
Is there a way to confirm only the shocks are at fault, as apposed to bearings and such.
ANSWER Hi. As you described no load as well as with a light load there are no violent issue. Remove the front panel. Look inside at the dampers and see if there is oil or grease leaking on the lower metal shaft. Look to see if the locator's pins are secure in the bottom of the cabinet all the way through the two-loops lifted from the cabinet. Look at the top to see if the outer tub ears are broken where the absorbers connect. Look in the back cover and male sure the main pulley nut is tight and there is no play on the pulley and the shaft. Open the front door and spin the inner basket while looking at the door bellows. See if the inner tub run out is too sloppy designating the inner tub shaft and rear outer tub bearing too sloppy and needs changed. All of this can be done quickly and 99% of the time its just worn out struts that all need replaced at the same time. Thank You.
