I have a 4 417-43142200 that also made a terrible noise when spinning. I found that the counterweight (a piece of curved concrete) had fallen out past the rear pulley and into the bottom of the washer. When the unit was on spin cycle it would wobble and bash against the counterweight. I bolted the counterweight back in place and it was fine. The engineer who designed this part of the machine was not very thoughtful since there is nothing to hold the counterweight captive. If the bolts had been placed further out then the block would have been captive.

The drum mounts to a spindle on the back. On these units, it is common for the tripod mounts for this particular design to crack and break. On almost every call I have had for a terrible vibration on these models, this has been the problem. The remedy is to replace the front and rear tub, as well as the basket. It is also recommended that you replace the drain pump at the same time. Most of this should be covered under at least a parts warranty.

Washer vibrates alot


The following link may give you some pointers on what to check on your kenmore Elite to resolve the vibration problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3633026-front_loader_excessive_vibration

This could be a matter of the legs becoming unlevel during the move, a shock absorber becoming damaged, or it could be the new location. These front loaders need a good firm and level foundation. Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the


Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

Kenmore (frigidaire) front load washer shakes


The ply wood will probably make it better. If this is your first front loader then this is all going to be new to you. Front loaders have so much force during the spin cycle and all of that force goes straight to the floor. It will shake like crazy and sound like a plane flying through your house if your floor is not strong. The best thing to do would be to hire someone to come out and go under the house to stabilize the floor under the washer. A simple 2x4 under the washer will do and minimize the shaking. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help you.

Front loader vibrates and moves


You shd check the front legs - they shd be a maximum screwed up, that is the machine shd be tilting forwards. Then you adjust acccording to your floor level. The machine should not shake a bit when off, & you try to shake it with both your hands.

A little vibration is normal when the spin starts. Don't forget to rate me nice............
