Yo can remove the lower acess panel 3 screws along the bottom of the front, and look at teh shock absorbers, ther should be 4 holding up the tub for support, sometimes the "pop" out if sockets and can be refit before repalcing them

    the drum is meant to move pretty freelly, hard to say how much is normal, i guess so long as th einner door boot( rubber inside door) sits nicely and is not being pulled downward by weight of tub the shocks are in good. at $30 a peice dont think id wanna replace them just cause.just to be clear, is the machine vibrating unto itself or perhaps its on an unstable floor( say the second floor, or over an an older constructed floor borads. ) reaon i ask is its possible that the machine is transferring the normal vibration into the floor, which is also quite common . in which case the make a product to minimoze those vibrations as well

Top loading washer vibrates quite a lot during spin cycle

If the machine is level and the feet are properly touching the pads it may be a fault in one of the suspension components or it could simply be the way the load is sitting in the machine during spin cycle. Towels get heavy when soaked and if the load is not balanced inside it will make the machine vibrate. Have you tried the machine without any clothes in it to rule that out?

Inspect the leveling feet on the rear stabilizer of the elliptical. Note if both sides are not flush to the floor. Unplug the machine if they are not flush to the floor.

  • Turn the leveling feet on one side or both with your hand until they are fully in contact with the floor so the machine will not make noise and tilt sideways during workouts
  • Plug in the machine. Use the machine as normal and listen for any noises. Clean and calibrate the ramp again if there is noise but the machine doesn't rock, and adjust the leveling feet again if the elliptical wavers.

    Drum is making a loud banging noise during spin, it is brand new

    Some banging or knocking during the ramp up to spin speed in this washer is normal. It is difficult to determine whether your washer has a problem or not based on your description. This banging lasts for varying amounts of time until the load is balanced and the washer ramps up to the full spin speed. If the load can not be balanced on the first attempt, the washer will ramp down and then tumble and attempt again to ramp up to speed. This may be the same thing that you are hearing when your washer ramps up to spin speed. Since the washer does spin at the full speed, there is not likely a problem with the washer. The components are designed to withstand repeated vibration and reasonable banging or knocking. The washer will vibrate to some extent at high speed. If you feel that the vibration is excessive, I recommend that you check the stability of the leveling feet. Press down on the diagonally opposing corners of the washer to check for play. If the washer rocks at all when conducting this test, I recommend that you adjust the leveling feet to eliminate this play even is the washer is not perfectly level after making this adjustment. This may help reduce the banging and vibration. Other than that if it is brand new call the people who you purchased it from so you don't void any warranties by taking it apart.

    LG WM0532HM is level but make my house vibrate Can anyone help?

    Put 5 or 6 bath towels on a quick wash cycle.
    During the spin cycle adjust the feet on the washer to smooth out the vibrations. Some times you only have to adjust one foot on the front to make a big difference.
    If you have a pedastal snug up the washer feet to the pedastal then proceed above.

    The washer came with a flat silver wrench to adjust the feet.

    On the spin cycle my miele walks acrossed the floor

    make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

    Try this for re-setting the balancing mechanism:
    With the washer empty, tip tip it forward so that it is just sitting on the front feet. Hold it there for a few seconds, then gently lower the back down. (Often there is a mechanism in the back feet that automatically levels it for you--if this doesn't work, check that the back feet are not damaged.)

    Excessive vibration during spin cycle

    Chck to see that all (6) suspension springs are still attached. Check the plastic snubber ring below the mechanism and above the base plate for cracks or contamination.

    Vibration during spin cycle

    Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
    Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
    If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

    Is the machine level. The feet should be tightened and the nuts should be tightened against the cabinet. Tilt the machine back and check the shock absorbers. One of the shockies could have jumped out of the guides.
