Don't...Unless you have a concrete floor you will never be satisfied with the pedestal. Your front loader will shake a lot more. People buy these things then I go to there house with a "shaking" problem and then they get mad at me because I tell them it's because of the pedestal. Front loaders were designed on concrete floors so they're only going to work like they say on concrete floors. Do a little research before you make that decision please. Not to mention they're about 200 dollars or more. Just a heads up I don't mean to bring ya down.
Make sure you have removed all the shipping bolts and straps. Front loaders come with bolts that go thru the back to keep the drum from moving during shipping. If you brought the washer home yourselves you may have left in these shipping bolts. Refer to you installation manual. It will give detailed instructions on how to set up your washer. If bolts are left in place the washer will vibrate and shake excessively and cause major damage if left in for too long.
your problem may be in the shocks or because this machine is very powerfull and spins very fast that the floor is giving (has play) and needs to be supported up from underneath it if u put the machine on a cement floor lock the legs securly to the machine if it spins fine then your floor is the problem
if it still shakes then i would replace the shocks
(sol v ya prob)
make sure that the nut on the leg is tihgtend down. check level lower on wash machine if all else fails buy shake away pads follow the install directions and see if that helps. i love my shake aways my floor doesnt vibrate any more.
More than likely it did not get reinstalled right after the move. All four of the leveling legs must be firmly touching the floor. If one is even the thickness of a piece of paper off the floor it will start to rock during spin and the problem just amplifies itself. Make sure it's perfectly level and that all the feet are firmly on the floor.
remove the top access panel 3 screws in top rear. now look around and push on the drum from top it has suspension shocks and springs like your car they should resist any movements. look/wiggle the concrete balance blocks , no cracks or loose. inside the tub are the arm solid /not loose. run it with the top open what do you see/hear and where look under the rubber flap in front did anything get under the tub
