Darryl.....Are you telling us that if the blades were balanced before throwing them in the washer,
That the washer wouldn't have been damaged?
Too much time on your hands....next time wear body armor...

Well there was an $1000 washing machine, emphasis on WAS. Wonder if that kid's mom knew her son just grenaded her fancy machine??? Just put all the pieces back in the space next to the dryer, throw some socks in it and pretend it did that on it's own, lol.

Yes, balance matters when spinning something at high speeds.

the washer was already screwed with before they tried this,the washer wont run unless the door is closed ,also the door locks when you turn the machine on ,and there are water sensors that wont allow it to run without water pressure ,there are also sensors that shut the units down when the load is unbalanced ,not to mention the unit balances the load [if possible] before it will run or it wont run at all .

I'd like to see someone stay on a mower while it's moving like that..... ;)

Ecurb......good observations......
I'm still wondering where all the bolts and fasteners went to.
That thing was a house of cards.....
