Easly off balanced now.

OK guys.. This washer has been working great. But the other day I heard a pop, or crack. Some type of noise that sounded like something broke. I first thought it was one of the springs on the basket because it started shacking more then normal. It's not that bad, but it is loader and when I open it the basket is moving around side to side a lot. The hole washer isn't shacking as bad as the GE I had before, but worse then it's been.  The wife was just washing some jeans and asked if it was always going to be this load now. I moved one of the jeans a little and it helped. But I'm wondering what could have broke. I took the case off and all the springs at the base (4 of them) are still there.

Thanks

Model LSR7233EQ0

There's more to the tub stabilization than just the springs. You may have a broken tub support or the skate plate may be missing some of the snubber pads. See the following diagram :

I have seen the skate plate get out of alignment and cause this problem as well.  Usually from an overload or as RP points out, one of the snubbers...

In the diagram above, the skate plate is the triangular-looking piece that sits under the tub support bracket. Here's a short video clip showing how it works...

Ok took a while but I'm getting around to looking at this problem. I have the case off and I can't tell what might be wrong. Without removing more then just the outer shall is there a way for me to tell whats wrong?

The triangular shaped floating skate plate should be aligned with the triangular shaped base.

Someone told me the tub can come out of the grove it rides in. Anyone have info of how to prove and fix that?

They wouldn't if they weren't in. I would still suspect the skate plate did you remove and inspect it, were all 3 plastic glides in place?

The only thing I did is removed the shipping pins.
