Check base mount springs, there are 3 from base to tub and 1 from tub to back bottom for counter balancing. If all are ok then you will have a skid plate problem. Best to call for help.

SOURCE: washer

The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: will not drain after the wash cycle, will not enter the rinse cycle

It sounds like the lid switch is bad.Does it act as if the lid is open even when closed? A common problem is that its mounting method fails (breaks off) after some time. Quick way to test is:
Find the plastic striker in the lid and under matching hole in the washer's top you should be able to find this switch. Try to operate (close) that switch with your finger or a screw driver and operate the washer while holding it down. If now it works, the switch is the culprit. Available on-line around $30.

Why won't my washer spin?


Sounds to me like your washer tub had a very unbalanced load in it (heavy blankets, jeans, or pillows, all piled to one side instead of evenly distributed around the inside of the tub), and it threw it off balance. When it began to wobble and knock, it may have broken the mechanics underneath the tub which make it spin. The only way to properly diagnose it is if you remove the outer casing of the washing machine and look beneath the tub for broken/out of place items.

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..

I am looking for a blanket for a picnic that won't get ruined if my young kids spill their drinks. Any ideas?


A blanket which is portable and waterproof may help. This one is now on sale on Amazon. It is made of 100% nylon and very soft for babies.
The material is fast-drying and lightweight. Large for family to have a picnic.

Rinse and spin cycle keeps repeating at 11 minute time to 17 minute time and won't stop


Sounds like your washer does not empty enough water for the spinning to stop. Have you check that the filter(s) are not clogged?
