So noisy work during spin


Hi,

can you explain a little bit more about the origin of the noise.

-First of all, make sure the floor is rock solid and does move at all. Is not, a solution can be to install a granite square as base to put the washer on top of it. this extra lower mass will prevent the machine pulsation the vibrate the floor and also the machine itself.

-to prevent sound propagation over the floor, you can put a little square of carpet under each legs of the machine.
-of course you can make sure the machine is horizontal; to do so, first use a horizontal level rule crossing the corner of the top of the washer.
-And during the sping check if all the legs are supporting the same pressure, trying adjust then with a constant binary (feeling the same force on the 4 legs with your hands when twisting them.)

-if the noise is from inside the washer: maybe it is from the panels: then you can buy a isolation layer to put inside the machine - check how to put it, in order to make sure this will not disable the free movement of the trum.

I hope I could help

Why does whirlpool washer wtw6200vwd twist pant leg and sleves!


It's an inherent problem with this washer due to the designed movement of the agitator. My wife had the same problem. We solved this and the multitude of other problems we had with this washer by going to home depot and buying the cheapest washer they had. Told the rep we wanted a washer with no computer, no special cleaning agitation designs, etc. He said "you want this one". we bought it, they delivered it and we now have cleaner clothes and no twisted sleeves, pant legs, error messages. When they were ready to leave they ask my wife if she wanted to keep the old washer or wanted them to haul it away. Her response was "I never want to see that thing again."

Leveling kenmore elite front loader


  • Place the level on the top of the washing machineicon1.png to see if it is level. Make sure you test it side to side and front to back.

    Pull the washing machine away from any walls if you have to make an adjustment to the legs.


  • Lift the washericon1.png and place the wood block underneath the washer. Place the block near the leg that needs to be adjusted, but don't let it obstruct the leg.

  • Loosen the nut that secures the legicon1.png with the wrench.

  • Raise the height of the leg by twisting it to the left, or lower the height by twisting it to the right.

  • Remove the block of wood from under the washer and recheck the machine with the level.

  • Raise or lower the leg if additional adjustments are needed.

  • Tighten the nut on the leg with the wrench when the machine is level.

  • Repeat the process for each leg that needs to be adjusted.

  • Move the washer back into position and check with the level again to make sure the washer remains stable to finish leveling the machine.

    Very noisy on spin cycle, not out of balance


    Hi, check leveling of machine, machine should be proper leveled on all side, use spirit level to adjust legs, there should be no rocking motion, in any direction after leveling, put hands on top of machine and try to rock it sids to side, there should be no movements, also check for overloading, be careful when washing things like bath towels, etc, they absorb lots of water, eg. one regular bath towel are equivalent, to six pants, six tops. or possible springs or bushings broken, you need open machine and check.

    Washing macine balance


    Adjust the legs on the washer that seems to be the problem. Or you could have broken the hinges and springs on the tub itself. The easiest thing to try is the legs first they just twist like a screw
