Thanks Charlie. I am glad that you pointed out that failure and fix. In some situations, the suspension rods can apparently cause the unbalanced problem in that type of washer. That information can help other readers who face the same problem.

ok I just had this problem with this and my washer was progressivly giving me the unballanced load called my repair guy and he said it was probbaly the suspension rods the washer has 4 of them and they work like shocks for the tub and if they go bad than they allow the drum to spin wildly. we replaced the suspension rods and bingo the washer was working like new.

An item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub of the washer could be causing this problem. With the washer empty and turned off, see if the spin basket will rotate freely by hand. If you detect some resistance or suspect that there is an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub, you can

unplug the washer

and pull the basket out of the washer as shown in the first image provided below.

If your washer has an agitator instead of an impeller like the one shown in the first image below, you will need to use the procedure in the second image to pull the spin basket out (with the washer

unplugged

).

If you find no problems with an item being stuck between the basket and the tub, then you could have a problem with the shaft that sticks up from the bottom of the washer tub. If you need more help, submit additional details and the full model number of your Cabrio washer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
