Washer vibrates away from wall on spin cycle. All springs that anchor outer tub assembly to the washer base are in place and not broken. Vibration is not present when tub spins without clothes. When loaded, clothes are evenly distributed in tub after the spin cycle ends letting me conclude an uneven load is not the cause. Can a defective friction ring p/n AP4049097 be responsible for excessive vibration? If not, what may cause the vibration?
ANSWER Hello Pat. Check and make sure the balance ring 27001149 on the outer tub is good, and no holes are in it. It should have liquid inside the balance ring. Also, check and make sure the base 27001226 of the washer is not cracked. Look for hair line cracks in the base. If so, it will cause the problem you are having. If all of this is good, then the friction ring 40037401 could be bad. Hope this helps.
