01 - Shipping bolts have not been removed
If the washer is new confirm the shipping bolts and packing material have been removed.
02 - Universal Washing Machine Bearing
The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing both the outer tub and bearing.

03 - Universal Washing Machine Rear Drum with Bearing
The rear drum has a bearing or bearings in it to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the tub bearing system is defective the washer can become very noisy. On some machines bearings are sold separately from the rear drum, however we recommend replacing both the outer drum and bearing as an assembly if the manufacturer offers the components together because removing and pressing in the new bearing can be exceptionally difficult. Be aware that replacing the outer tub and bearing is also not e...asy and can be very costly.

Confirm the load is balanced. If there are light items and heavy items in the same load the tub will spin out of balance. Wash items with aproximately the same weight together to better balance the load. One or two items will likey shift to one side and cause the tub to go out of balance. You may have to add more items to even out the load.
