My upright washers tub is very wobbly. should all four dampters be replaced at the same time??
Answer JJ, The model number you supplied [WCVH6800J1MR] is a "front load" washer. You may want to start with all four of the dampers WH01X10425 and check the two suspension springs WH05X10009 and cabinet that hold the tub up from the top. Of course you want to check and make sure the washer is level and on a good solid floor, first. It's also possible to have a worn tub bearing or spin basket shaft that has worn to the point where the inner basket could "wobble". But do the basic checks or repairs to the suspension system first.
The washer is making a lot of noise during the final spin. I checked the shocks and one was cracked so I replaced that. No change. Still a lot noise (not banging), like it is not balanced.
I emptied the pump's button catch. No change in noise.
When the spin is set on Medium, not high, there is little to no noise.
What is wrong w/ this washer?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Answer Hello Thanh,
If your model number is actually WCVH6800J0MS, you should check the weights on the outside of the outer tub. If any of them are loose they will make a racket. Also check the support springs and make sure they are in the rearmost slots in the cabinet openings. If these are good you should run a spin only cycle to heat up the bearings and when it stops, open the door and turn the spin basket, feeling for any roughness or opposition to rotation. If this is good also, reach inside and lift the front of the spin basket, feeling for slack between the spin basket and the outer tub assembly. Turn the spin basket 1/3 of a turn and so this again. Now turn it another 1/3 of a turn and do the same once more. If you feel a "clunk" in any position, it indicates that the spinner support assembly WH45X10079 has an issue.
Washer tub has at least 1/2" of up/down/sideways play. White plastic ring behind the bellow seal is worn down and flakeing off. Lot of thump,thump on high speed spin cycle. Rear shocks look ok. Weights, front shocks??? List of parts needed. Thanks.
If the inner tub is moving up/down and side to side independently of the outer tub then the issue would most likely be caused by a broken tub support. The parts that would be needed to replaced if this is the case would be the spin basket WH45X10079 and the front outer tub WH45X10101.
