The drum mounts to a spindle on the back. On these units, it is common for the tripod mounts for this particular design to crack and break. On almost every call I have had for a terrible vibration on these models, this has been the problem. The remedy is to replace the front and rear tub, as well as the basket. It is also recommended that you replace the drain pump at the same time. Most of this should be covered under at least a parts warranty.

SOURCE: Washer Shaking Violently on Spin Cycle

Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength for leaking issues Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Ensure the washer is level by rocking it. If its level should'nt be able to move. You may have a weak floor. to checks this look to see if anything is vibrating around the washer.

Noisy & shaking spin cycle and smell


The shaking could be your shocks beginning to go bad, an unbalanced load, unbalanced machine, or even possibly weak flooring. As far as the smell you can purchase a product called "AFFRESH" at your local parts distributor which works well to removed the mildew in the gasket. You just put the tablets in and run the machine through a cycle. You could also wipe the gasket out with a wet rag.
Be sure to leave the door cracked open between cycles this will help prevent mildew from building up.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Washer was making a very loud shaking sound in the spin cycle, the noise stopped the spinning stopped and I smelled burning.washer will not spin


I had a shakey washer that I bought open box from "circuit city", it was a return.

I was to lazy to learn why the washer would shake and a technician told me to manually balance the wash load in the drum.

Later, I got into the washer and lubed up the rotating shafts and rockers. The washer lost all its shakes with the mechanics properly lubed. From the factory the mechanics were never properly lubed.

Tight mechanics that are supposed balance the spin cycle by moving could be part of what is getting warm. The belt spinning the washer also takes a beating when the drum shakes.

Get a good discount on your washer first, and then lube the mechanics. Everything about the washer is meant to work. If the mechanics are too tight you'll have shaking.

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load


The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

I have a maytag top loader washer and when it is on the spin cycle the whole drum shakes hitting the walls of the washer


Without having the model number, it is difficult to diagnose.

Most Maytag / Whirlpool top loaders use a set of balance springs and friction pads to buffer the shaking.

Here is a Whirlpool site with a number of PDF files on their products including troubleshooting sections.

Find your washer under laundry products and open the PDF, it will probably take a few minutes to load.

Spin cycle - washer is shaking and jumping


Try to relevel the unit. Another suggestion is use the cycle for delicates (the spin cycle is slower). If it is still out of balance and shaking one of the dampers may have broke

Washer machine is shaking terrible during the high speed spin


Alot of times with front loader machines they will shake at high speed even if the machine is level. The floor may not sturdy enough. You can put a piece of 3/4" plywood or something like that under you machine. I know putting plywood under your machine is not the best looking thing, but it should help the shaking. The product just needs to to sturdy.
