Laundry Center Washer Tube off center
« on: November 02, 2008, 01:46:39 PM »
The lower washing machine tub jumps off center and off the suspension assembly tie-downs after one spin cycle w/o any clothes being lopsided.  I have reset the suspension assemblies but the problem is elsewhere. Something that supports the tub is not holding it centered.  What is the most like suspect for part failure in the machine base parts?  Iíll take all the help I can get.  The machine is barely 18 months old and used only 4 times.  Thanks

Model 110.88752796

I read somewhere in the forums that you are not supposed to grab the tub when breaking over the washer for transportation. Makes the snubber ring get out of center and you have wobblemania. I would try to grab it from the opposite side of the way it was originally trucked and break it over to maybe half way to see if the snubber falls back into place. Hey it is worth a shot.

What you will find at the end of the day is a warped tub support base, part # 63740
