If you had the washer tilted back when you replaced the coupler, this may just be a simple matter of releveling the washer. Whirlpool top loaders have an auto-leveling mechanism on the back two feet of the washer. Periodically, you may need to check the level due to normal vibration and moving the appliance.. The following link explains how:

If the washer is unlevel it can give the appearance of the drum being tilted. Try this and let me know if this helps you. If not, please post back and let me know.

    Have you verified that spanner nut under the agitator is tight? You will need to remove the agitator by popping off the dispenser/center cap and loosen the bolt. Once the bolt is removed, the agitator will lift off, exposing the gearcase shaft. The spanner nut is what keeps the drum tight to the center shaft.

Stylemaster #4217140 Reguardless of how I load the washer it always ends up spinning unbalanced. The machine is level Lto R & front to rear.Any thoughts?


top loader
the problem will be that the tub support air dampeners have failed and any small unbalance is not controlled and so goes into big unbalance
a kit of 4 rods will be available from the service agent spares section and if the technician is doing the job about 15 minutes
if you are doing the job about 1 hour

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

My kenmore washer don't spin


Probably need more information but guessing its a top loader and the motor is turning but the drum is not spinning but the water is being emptied? If that is the case it is probably a worn out coupling that needs replaced. The pump shaft runs through the gear of the pump body and also through a coupler. The coupler will eventually wear to the point the motor shaft just spins inside the coupler. If it is a front loader there is probably a V belt that is broken or damaged.

Amana top loader washing maching permanently tilted drum & loud banging during spin cycle


I guess you washed some curtains and blankets in it that it spun unbalanced. There are 2 things. One is the one of the suspension springs broke off. Another is the center post is already bent. You may have to check inside. If you are handy, you can take off the cover and check. Suspension springs are dangerous when being replaced. You may have to wear a pair of goggles. With the centerpost, it is difficult to replace. I suggest you call a technician for this.

First change the springs - both the leveling and suspension. You may also need to change a few other parts on the brake and drive tube including the thrust ring. But replace the springs and let see what happens.
