Title: Washer Walking on spin cycle
Post by: Vernald on May 19, 2009, 01:38:22 PM
I have the same washer (http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=3931.0) walking (off-balance) on spin cycle - Inglis Washer.  The tub (drum? basket?) and the agitator sits on off-center angle when empty.  I replaced the spring that holds the drum steady....adjusted the washer legs...just replaced the broken motor coupler....replaced the agitator gasket...what else to do?

Model FWS235RFS6

you probably knocked it out of balance messing with that coupling.
Wiggle it around and run a few loads to get it back in sinc.

Inglis is the Euro label for Whirlpool appliances, so this is the standard direct-drive washer. More than likely, if you laid it over during your coupler repair, the tub support or "skate plate" could have been bent or warped, or possibly the snubber pads that are mounted on it have become worn out.

I did one of these yesterday where the skate plate was broken in 2. The first time I've seen that!! I've also seen where they just get out of proper position and just need to be realigned without replacing.
