How do I balance a Kenmore 70 series washing machine.


Wood laminate flooring is never a good idea in areas that can get wet often. But, that being said, there should be leveling feet on the washer which should allow you to get it stable on the floor, if that's what your problem is. If your problem is that the washer tends to walk around the room when in the spin cycle, well that is partially due to the fact that washers often vibrate when they spin, especially when spinning large, bulky objects like quilts and comforters, that the feet on the bottom of washer are smooth plastic, and that smooth plastic feet don't stay in one place to well on wood laminate floors.

My washing machine keeps getting water in it after the cycle is over. This morning I came in and my empty washer was filled with water and had overflowed onto the floor. Help! There are also times when...


mine also remains wet and soggy, even after the spin cycle. However, I have not, as of yet, (and hopefully won't) begin having overflow problems.

Mine is jumping around the laundry room - as though in an unbalanced cycle. We discovered that one of the "feet" that the washer stands on needs to be adjusted, upward or down, so that the washer stands balanced and evenly. The "foot" does not make contact, and when we turn it to change its height, it just goes in circles without changing height.

My washer on spin cycle shakes the whole room. Iv tried leveling it but have had little success


What type of floor do you have the washer on (e.g.: concrete, wood, etc.)? If not attributed to the type of floor, there may be an issue with the internal springs, shocks, etc. Contact an appliance service company.

first of all if this is a new washer you need to make sure all the shipping straps or bolts are off. one way to find out is to open the door reach and grab on to the tub it supposed to be able to move up down and side to side. if not then the shipping bolts has not been removed.

these machines can have this problem when placed on a pedestal and/or the floor may be level but not solid. a "bouncy" floor will amplify any movements. remember, these machines are much heavier and spin much faster than top-loaders. just because it doesn't jiggle doesn't mean the floor is level. you may have to brace to floor or foundation somehow

Wm 2487H. My machine is off balance and shake the house terribly bad. It also has a metalic scraping sound sometimes when the drum spins. I just purchased my LG washer and dryer a couple of months ago. I...


Starting in November 2008--LG introduced "square door" model washers.
These washers will (unlike round door models) perform very well on wood floors.
If the WM2487 washer is on a wood floor--even a tiled wood floor--it will be near impossible to get smooth spin performance.
Some homeowners have had success by adding two layers of 3/4 inch wood under the washer AND dryer.
The following steps were taken:
1) Remove washer & dryer
2) Cut & remove any floor covering (bare wood)
3) Locate floor joists with a stud-finder & mark locations at the edge of the flooring--allows finding the joist locations after 3/4 sheet is laid to floor.
4) Add wood glue to floor
5) Place 3/4 inch wood sheet to floor & drive screws thru wood into joists (as many scews as deemed necessary to fully & completely compress wood sheet to existing floor
6) Add wood glue to 1st wood sheet
7) Place 2nd 3/4 inch wood sheet on top of 1st wood layer and drive screws into floor joists.
8) Add molding if desired
9) Re-install washer & dryer and level.
10) Add one heavy towel into washer tub & close door ( this will mimick an off-center load)
11) Press power "on" button
12) Press "Spin Speed" button & select high speed spin option
13) Press "Start" button
14) When * 9 minutes remaining * is displayed--use the flat wrenchette that comes with every LG washer to "tweak" the adjustment of the front leveling legs. This will allow for "fine tuning" adjustment of the front leveling leg(s) to eliminate vibration / noise during the spin cycle. The rear leveling legs DO NOT need further adjustment.
NOTE: Those with pedestals--check the front leveling legs on the washer and on the pedestals (front only) during spin.

Welcome hendrik,
You said, jumping around during spin cycle


How old is your GHW9150 washer?

Usually it is overload or load unbalanced due to uneven load.You must stop the machine and re-distribute the load and or weight!

Here are some Whirlpool reasons for you.
But if nothing helps you may have a mechanical problem to be serviced!


Try these ideas first!

Is the load balanced?

A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.
Washer makes noise or vibrates
Is the washer level?
The washer must be level. The four feet should be properly
installed, and the nuts should be tightened against the
washer cabinet.
As water is drained from the washer, you may hear air being
pulled through the pump. This happens during the end of
draining. It is normal.
Are you washing items with metal snaps, buckles or zippers?
You may hear metal items touching the washer drum. This is
normal.
Is washer installed on a sturdy and solid floor?
Refer to the “Installation Instructions” for flooring
requirements. Noise and vibration may be reduced by placing
a piece of ¾" (19.1 mm) plywood underneath your washer.
The plywood may extend underneath both washer and dryer
to keep them at equal heights.
Let me know If you have any questions and what happens!!!
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
