Try using plastic shims from any Major hardware outlet, and place on the right side until even. Make sure the shims, or even a block of wood the space you need to level the unit. Try screwing the back right leg out as far as you can and screw the left back leg in to shorten it, if you have that feature.

Where is the balance sensor located on my Kenmore Elite Oasis washer


Hello.

Top loading washing machines can emit loud noises and vibrations if they are not properly balanced. Imbalanced machines are the result of large loads of clothing that rock the machine causing one or more of the feet to rise off of the floor. Front loading washing machines do not have this problem because there is no side-to-side motion. Kenmore top loading washing machines have self-leveling feet on the rear of the machine and adjustable feet on the front of the machine.

1 plug the washing machine's power cord from the electrical socket. Pull the washer away from the wall, or out of the laundry closet, so that it is easily accessible.

2 rasp the top back of the washer on both sides and tilt it forward until the back feet are off of the ground by 4 inches. Lower the washer gently back to the ground. This maneuver, adjusts the self-leveling rear washer feet so that they are fully extended. You may need the assistance of another person to do this.

3 lace a level on top of the washer near the front edge. Look for the air bubble in the level to determine which side of the washer is out of balance. The side that the bubble leans toward is the side the needs to be raised.

4 Move the level so that it is positioned along the side edge of the washer and check to see if it is level from front to back. If it is level, move it to the other side of the washer and see if it is level.

5 Lift up on the front of the washer and insert a wooden block or brick under the front bottom edge.

6 Crouch down on the floor near the front foot that needs to be raised. Use your fingers to twist the threaded foot clockwise to retract the foot and counterclockwise to extend the foot further. If necessary, adjust the other front foot as well using the same method.

7 Lift up on the top of the washer and slide the block out from under it. Place the level on top of the washer to check that it is level. If the washer is not level, replace the block and continue adjusting the feet until the air bubble is centered in the level.

8 Crouch down on the floor near the front of the washer and use a 14 mm wrench to twist the metal nut on each front foot counterclockwise. Twist each nut until each is tight against the washer and will no longer move.

9 Plug the washer's electrical cord back into the wall.

And the problem will be solve.
Thanks.

My front load washer keeps going off balance. Even with small loads. I have leveled the washer but I'm not sure what else to try.

The mowing deck on craftmans lt200 is leaning to one side. this causes an uneven cut


I think one of the hangers has become disconnected. There should be a leveling procedure for this in your owners manual. If you dont have that manual ... you may find the leveling procedure at the Sears web site. Leveling procedure is pretty standard ... the basic idea is get on a level surface --- your garage --- measure from the deck to the floor on 4 corners ... make adjustments as required front to back and then side to side. Once you are on the floor ... you will see what to do.

4 month old washer is so loud it sounds like someone dropping a trash can to the pavement from 5 feet high


Check to make sure it's level. Number one cause of vibration is not being level. Number two cause is soft floor and what I call "Sympathetic vibration" where the floor shakes a bit and it seems like it's in time with the vibration on the washer. It then magnifies the vibration and makes it worse.

If it's level and on a solid floor, you need to get it serviced under warrenty.

Adjust height level on uneven floor


Yes, the front two "feet" of the refrigerator are used to for leveling purposes. Don't forget to level front to back, and left to right. Hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore top loading washing machine model 92529110. My wife has been noticing that the tub leans toward the front causing the water to hit the back edge of the tub instead of running straight into...


The machine needs to be leveled. Unscrew the front legs until the machine is level. If there isn't enough screw, or if your floor is really uneven, put a board under the front legs. After you get the front level, lean the machine toward you, tilting it front, until the back feet are about 3 inches off the floor. Let the machine drop. This will set the back legs into position. They are self leveling.

Remove the front lower panel (3 screws on lower lip - lay on floor to see). Panel come right off. there is a round "dial" to the front housing. Put down a bath towel on the floor and unscrew dial - then pull it out.
