    Washer vibrates excessively in spin cycle

    After moving to a new house, the washing machine vibrates excessively likes it's out of balance, though it's not out of balance. The floor is level and the washing machine is level yet it still vibrates when it spins. Perhaps something broke or came loose during the move?

Open washer's cover and look for a released or a malfunction shock absorber. Good luck!

While drying the drum makes suddenly a big noise and shakes a lot


Hi


Distribute the load of clothes when you put it in. Make sure they are balanced properly. If it's thumping during the spin cycle, stop it, open it up, move some clothes from the fuller side to the less full side, and see if that helps. Replace the springs inside the machine which suspend the washing drum. Open it up, take a look of it. Perhaps they're all saggy and this is permitting excessive vibration.

Put something under the machine to stop it from transmitting the vibrations to the floor of the house. An old sock folded several times and placed under each of the four feet may help. Rubber or foam will also work. Also, make certain the machine is level from front to back and side to side. Most washing machines have a large weight attached to the drum, usually a concrete block. It's supposed to prevent too much vibration. Check that one or more of the bolts holding it on haven't come loose.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Duet Vibrates the whole house on the spin cycle. it has started this only when we recently moved.


The key statement that you made was the fact that you recently moved. Some questions you may ask yourself:

Where was your washer installed in your old home as compared to where it is installed now?

Did you re-level the feet after you moved the washer?

Did any of the shock mounts come dislodged during the move?

Is the flooring in your new home substantial enough to handle the weight and spinning action of a front loader?

The following link can give you some things to consider when trying to figure out what may be causing excessive vibration:

You may not like hearing some of this, but I can assure you, I have dealt with this problem numerous times. In the majority of cases, substantial flooring was causing the problem.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find the information helpful in some way.

My Bosh washing machine has excessive vibration according the the level i put on the top of the washer it is level, but still seems to walk accross the floor on the final spin cycle.


it may be level but if the feet are not adjusted to be tight to the floor this will cause it to walk so try adjusting the feet then lock the locking nut I am sure you will find 2 that are not adjusted tight enough.

Excessive vibrating and banging in the spin cycle with some washes. The unit is only 1 month old. Any advice?


You have a improper installation. The machine has to be perfectly level side to side and frotnt to back. After leveling, check the feet on the bottom and see if one is bouncing on spin with a load. Adjust the bouncing foot down until machine stops bouncing.

LG front loading washer: recently moved to a new house and laundry room is on the 2nd floor. Re-installed the shipping bolts in the back of the washer that secures the drum prior to moving the washer. But...


Make sure machine is level and all four leveling legs are solidly touching floor at the same time. Make sure leveling leg locking nuts are screwed up to lock legs in place. Check floor for firmness. (try bouncing up and down in front of washer to see if the floor has excessive give.) You may need to re-inforce floor. Wash larger loads. On bulky items, use a lower spin speed. You can re-spin at a higher speed after cycle is complete if you want them spun out better. (some models have a pump and spin only setting, on others, just turn on the power and then only touch the spin speed button to select a 14 minute pump and spin only cycle, then touch the start button.) The only other thing is that the new LG washers use a balance ring now, which makes the machine perform much smoother. (I know because I gave my old LG to my son and replaced it with the newer model, which now runs much quieter, in the exact same location as the old one.)

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.

Brand new front load kenmore wobbles and moves across floor


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.

Kenmore 22932 Top load washer has excessive vibration at end of spin cycle


IF THE FLOOR IS NOT ABSOLUTELY STABLE, IT WILL MAGNIFY A SMALL VIBRATION INTO A LARGE ONE. PUT SOMETHING ON THE DRYER IF IT SETS NEXT TO THE WASHER, AND TURN ON THE WASHER INTO SPIN. IF THE ITEM ON THE DRYER SHAKES, THE FLOOR IS MOVING.
IF THE WASHER IS ON CARPET, REMOVE THE CARPET OR CUT HOLES IN IT WHERE THE FEET ARE SO IT IS NOT SETTING ON THE CARPET. THE CARPET AND PAD WILL BE TOO SOFT FOR THE WASHER TO SET STABLE.
ALSO, PICK UP ON THE REAR OF THE WASHER TO RESET THE AUTO LEVELING REAR LEGS. YOU SHOULD HEAR THEM MOVE AND RESET WHEN YOU SET THE WASHER BACK DOWN.
