The tub keeps moving when I wash cloths. I push it back so that it's even all
the way around but it quickly moves again like it's off balance. It moves so
much that when the water comes in it's actually going behind the tub and in the

Thats a name I have not heard in ages. "Westinghouse" Is that company
still in business? If not, that machine must be at least 50 years old.
This looks to be a repost from the "hub" so who knows how old the post
is. I normally do not post to these, but what the heck....
I agree, something must have broken that mounts the drum. If there
really is an OP who is following this, I'd not leave it like that. It
will self destruct rapidly.

They merged with White. Or more precisely, White bought the large
appliance section of Westinghouse. Westinghouse might still exist
doing something else. Ask Betty Furness.
But my washing machine is 39 years old and works fine. A Kenmore

I have a Westinghouse 55" LCD TV. Somebody bought the rights to the name.
And I have to say, for essentially a no-name, low cost TV, it's working
great at 3 years. Previously I had an expensive Sony and it failed in
less than 5 years. The ribbon cables that are bonded to the display
panel start to come loose, it was a common problem, Sony offered some
pitiful amount, like $500 towards another Sony. I did some research,
some looking around and went with the Westinghouse.

Circle-W sold the appliance business to White Sewing Machine Co. in
mid-70s; became "White-Westinghouse" then. I think they eventually were
bought up by somebody but don't know otomh.
Westinghouse began to lose their way clear back in the 50s-60s by
getting enamored with the broadcasting side of TV and seeing "big bucks"
in consumer finance after the wars (II and Korean). Bought into all
kinds of non-core businesses as disparate as a toy manufacturer to 7-Up
bottling. By the 70s-80s they're in the straits of having to sell off
the technical portions of the business to keep the other afloat, in
1990(?) Westinghouse Credit goes belly-up w/ a $1B loss on bad consumer
debt and sells off all the power generation business to Asea Brown
Boveri (ABB) and by 1997 sells the nuclear energy division, its last
major manufacturing asset to BNFL (British Nuclear Fuels, Ltd) and
Siemens bought the rest of the non-nuclear power generation and
distribution business shortly thereafter and Westinghouse, with nothing
left of its former self, renamed itself to CBS. At some point Viacom
bought CBS and that was the end of the original Westinghouse. Sad fate
Toshiba acquired the BNFL assets and operates the nuclear division as
Westinghouse Electric Company.
Siemens operated under the name of Siemens Westinghouse until early
2000's but dropped it as the name recognition became worthless and they
smooshed all the specific technologies into their own.
In the 60s, "Circle W" was our prime competitor in the commercial
nuclear fuel market and, of course, pioneered all the US nuclear navy
reactors. We built all the fuel for the navy at the B&W NNFD (Navy
Nuclear Fuel Division) at Mt Athos plant while NPGD (Nuclear Power
Generation Division) operated in Lynchburg.
With the long hiatus in commercial nuclear power construction in the US,
all the US vendors struggled to continue; B&W also went through several
reorganizations after being acquired by McDermott but continues as B&W
and BWXT which handles all the Navy and other government nuclear
operations and B&W is the descendent of the original Babcock & Wilcox,
still in non-nuclear power generation.
Edison Electric in NJ eventually acquired them along with Frigidaire,
Crosley, and a few others. Then they changed their name to Frigidaire
because it had good brand recognition. They were eventually bought out
by Husquevarna, and are now part of Electrolux.
As an aside, Frigidaire was a division of General Motors but was sold
off sometime in the 60's or so.
