Front loading washer shakes violently. Just started doing this. Took off front, rear, and top panels. Drum turns by hand smoothly and freely. Took strut loose from bottom panel. It appears to be ok and is strong. Any other ideas?
ANSWER Hello Jim,
It is possible that the inner tub shaft may be broken or loose causing movement of the tub in the spin cycle. Pull the baffles off and check the bolts behind them to make sure that they are not loose. If loose tighten them. Also check the rubber feet on unit to make sure that they are not damaged or torn. Check to make sure that unit is level and legs are locked.
