Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag front loader MAH-3 vibrates. Level & on concrete floor.

My mom's Maytag front loading washer is on a concrete floor, has been leveled and lock nuts tightened down. It still vibrates so badly during any spin cycle that it walks across the floor.

    Thanks - we'll check it out. This is certainly more helpful than the Sears repairman who came out and did nothing!

    Spin cycle causes extreme vibration (ceramic tile floor). Very noisy and washer moves out of place

WHERE CAN I FIND PEDESTALS FOR MAYTAG NEPTUNE WASHER AND DRYER MODELS MD55 AND MAH-1 MODELS?


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.

WE recently purchased a front loading Frigidaire washer. I love it except we can't seem to get it level so it doesn't vibrate. It is on a concrete floor and thought the feet were self leveling but that's...


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.

I have a LG WM2032HW Front Load washer that shakes like crazy! It is level, shipping bolts are removed and it does not matter if the washer is empty, just a small amount of clothes or full!


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

dear sir/mam
please check the floor level of your washer by using the spirit level,if there is difference please adjust the level by screwing the legs of the washer,then vibration will be stopped.

Major shaking during spin cycle


I have the exact same washing machine with the same problem. It is a poor design and Maytag knows it. We should be entitled to a refund. This was a very expensive machine.

Out of balance drum WM2277HW?


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.
