Shaking violently during spin cycle
Model Number: WFW8300SW05 Brand:
1 - 5 years
Just bought whirlpool duet sport used. Ran the clean washer cycle, worked fine.
First load of clothes on whitest whites setting, the washer shook violently once the high speed spin cycle was initiated and the stacked dryer fell off the top, we had left the house and came home to this mess.
It seems to work well in all other phases of the wash cycle. We've tried to level it as best we can using a good carpenters level, one of the leveling feet is beat up, it still shook in a major way, lifting itself off the floor an inch or two after leveling again.
I have opened up the top and front lower compartments to look for any obvious problems. Springs look good but do they wear out? There are 3 shock absorbers, but I can't tell how to test them for wear. Should there be 4 shocks? Help, I don't know what to do next to fix it.
