I have a 90 series Kenmore washer, and I need to adjust the height of the back legs, but I do not know how to make the adjustment

The rear legs are floating and self leveling. If one of them legs is all the way up in the base tip the washer towards you and yank out the leg to where each side is floating. Then ease the washer back down to the floor and she will level herself off.

Kenmore 700 series top load washer problem

This machine has self adjusting legs in the rear. Tilt the machine forward and see if you can hear the spring loaded legs adjust in the back if not they may need some lubrication and some help. tap on legs with hammer gently and they will usually release. Front legs have screw adjustments and very important locking nut which 99 out of 100 installers wont use. Thank you

Spins off balance

Hello kel_lyn_eve,

Because your washing machine is so heavy, when it's not level, it can vibrate strongly during the spin cycle. If your washing machine is not perfectly level--with all four legs touching the floor--it can bang and rock back and forth, and even begin to "walk" across the room. This isn't good for the machine and may damage anything near the machine.

Your washing machine has adjustable, front leveling legs with a lock nut. You adjust the leg to the proper height, then tighten the lock nut up against the body of the machine to keep the leg from rotating.

Some machines have adjustable leveling legs in the rear also, and you can adjust them in the same way. Keep the machine as close to the floor as possible--the lower it is, the less likely it is to vibrate.

Most machines, however, have "self-adjusting" rear legs. You set these legs by tilting the entire machine forward onto its front legs (with the rear legs 3 to 4 inches off the floor) and then setting the machine back down. The legs should adjust automatically. If they don't, you may need to tilt the machine forward and rap on the rear legs with the handle of a hammer to loosen them--a procedure that's easier to accomplish with a helper.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you fix your problem.

Speed Queen Top Loader heavy duty washer

First unplug the machine, now take off the front panel, two screws at the bottom of the front panel, front panel swings up and off.

check to make sure the six springs are still in place.

Under the tub is bearing housing between the tub and base usually white in color, under this is a plastic ring, does it seem to float easily when you move the tub. it could be broken. Also look around for loose or missing screws.

If all seems fine, make sure you have all four rubber feet on, level machine, in the front first side to side, then pull machine toward you to bring rear legs off floor, these are self leveling, have someone assist and make sure they are not stuck, use a pliers and break loose if they are. So with the machine on its front feet and the back feet off the ground set the machine down on all four feet check level front to back adjust as needed on the front legs. You should reset rear legs as you adjust the front. now with machine level tight the nut between the front legs and the base locking them.

This should help, if machine still shakes it could be the balance ring, has lost if solution its filled with a salt water solution, the hard part is you need to find it under the tub cover. we will go into the detail if we need to. ask more questions later

Leveling a washer tub how to do so

first get a level. second, some have self leveling rear legs, just lean the machine forward and set down slowly. the rear legs are now level. if you dont have self leveling rear legs, the legs screw in, so just screw them in or out as well as the front legs untl it appears level by eye. now place the level on the washer. check it front to back and side to side. try rocking the machine to see if there is any movement. if there is adjust the legso it stops rocking, all the while keeping an eye on the level
