Walking Washer My washer constantly walks, and rocks. We worked on the levelers, but the tub itself rocks horribly on a spin cycle. Is there some sort of band that needs repairing?

Maytag washing machine walks across floor during spin cycle


Did you set the back feet before leveling? On most units to set and lock the back feet you need to pull the top towards you so that the back is raised off the floor, then set it down again, this will release the feet and lock then down. The you level the two front feet. After this is done you must make sure your load is balanced. Distribute the items as evenly as you can in the tub. Once it gets to the spin cycle if its walking or shaking a lot, stop it and redistribute the items more evenly in the tub. Also try not to overload the unit or combining many heavy items with few light ones. If this is a new machine, did you remove the shipping locks from the back before using it? They have plastic strips attached to them, make sure they have all been removed, as well as any shipping bolts.

The tub on my admiral spins out of control hitting the walls of the washer and even moving the washer out of position


Hello,
The problem i believe with your washer is a snubber ring. What is is and does is a teflon coated coated that fits between the tub support and the base frame ,both the support and frame are metal and during spin the tub has some movement espically during the high speed spin. This snubber fits between those two parts and allows the tub to move and is will slide around on this snubber.when that snubber has ground down to nothing when the tub moves it's not sliding on this snubber but grinding into the base and rocking the entire machine around,vibrating and walking all oveer the place(hehe..i seen one washer that had that snubber bad walk to the corner store and get a sandwich) Replacing that snubber will once again allow the tub to move freely and the snubber will asorb that movement,keeping the base solid and not rocking. To replace that snubber the entire tub asm. must be removed from the washer to replace the snubber

Spins so harder washer walks across the room. the washer is level. the load is balanced. is it the tub inside the washer that is not level


Engage your lid switch so that washer will spin in spin cycle and watch it spin. At end of cycle when washer shuts down the tub should come to a fairly sudden stop if it doesn't then you need to have the brake worked on. If it does post your model number and i'll advise further.

Whirpool Duet "walking"


Hi, most of the time this can be a simple as a overload that will dramatically shake this type of washer. due to its front load design, it is recommeded to load accordingly to specs. overloading this type of washer will induce walking/excessive vibration during the spin cycle.

Washer is "walking" during the spin cycle


I have the same Duet that vibrates heavily during spin cycle. Leveled the unit with no success (our unit is mounted on the high base). Long story short, I went to Lowes and purchased a package of 4"X5" self stick foam rubber pads called Grippers by Wasman Consumer Group and paid a low price of $3.50. Since the washer walked forward, I cut one of the two Pads in the package in half, removed the sticky side paper protector and centered a half, sticky side to washer pad, to each front washer pad. The problem was solved.

I made sure the round floor pads of the washer were tight and the unit was level before attaching the Grippers. Hope this helps.

Washer tub goes off balance every time and washer walks!


there may be a possibility here of the centre hub being worn or the liner tub bearing being worn due to the age of the machine.. here is a list and diagrams of the parts you may need and can get from here:-
http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=mat13mn&searchTerm=img_CW17-6&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=Maytag

try to check for slackness when the tub is empty causing a rocking/slapping motion whilst empty. if the tub is used regularly and to its maximum capacity then the likeliehood is these bearings/hubs may need to be replaced.. the "walking" across the floor will be accented by the amount of items plus water in the tub. and if the tub is off balance,then this will be more highlighted when also full of water and items... if you feel this is over the top,then try to lighten the load that is in the tub at any given time. this will determine weather the bearing has indeed worn .the lighter the load,the less "walking the machine should do in cycle.. the only time walking would be unchanged is during the spin cycle,when the speed is of a constant one and it will vibrate at the same rate. placing it on a rubber mat is not a solution but just something that will make you hopefully think it is solved
and you may as well just bolt the machine to the floor and hope for the best

Walking during the spin cycle


Is your floor level, first thing. Okay, the rear 2 legs are not adjustable so leave it. The front 2 legs should be screwed up (ie the machine should be at the lowest level in front) and there are check nuts to tighten inside the body of the machine. Check the machine it it rocks by using your hand against it. Adjust accordingly, this is if your floor is not too good. You shd not hv any problem. If the rocking persists check inside machine, behind after getting he plug off wall, maybe shockabsorbers hv come off, springs?.....

and rate me please if helped.............

LG1812CW Walks During Spin Cycle


The rear 2 legs are fixed. The front 2 are adjustable. There are lock nuts to prevent the adjustment from coming loose. The front legs are to be adjusted to the minimum. While not running if the machine rocks, continue the adjustment. For few clothes there is a half load switch; best the read the manual well before anything. Well if the walking continues, check the rear for any shocks or springs that may hv fallen off during transport. Plug off the wall socket first.
