    Too much vibrations during spin cycle causes this kind of problem . Just unmount from the pedestal and check whether it works properly .

How do I balance a Kenmore HE2 Front Load Washer.


You need to level the washer. They also have things to put under the feet to keep it from moving. Or try to block the feet.

Spin cycle shakes whole washing machine


have you tightened the jamb nuts on the legs after leveling the machine so they can't move from where you set them initially when you leveled the unit?

My washer jumps and moves accross the laundry room during the spin cycle. We have made sure it is totally level and made sure there aren't a lot of clothes in the washer at one time.


You have a wash Load Unbalance, as you have done, ensure the clothes are evenly distributed in the drum, so it is either that or the balance weights have come off the drum inside...I have also seen it when a bearing has gone bad. probably going to have to get someone to have an inspection.

Why does my EPIC z walks during spin cycle even after I used the rubber pads? It moves from the right back corner out to the left.


Make sure that the leveling feet are secure with the jamb nut tight against the BODY of the washer. If not, the washer could walk during spin. Make sure that washer is flat level front to back and side to side with a 24" level. Just set the level on the top near the front and then on both sides as well. Adjust the feet and jamb nuts so that they are as low as possible. If washer is on a stand, remove drawer to adjust feet. Also, if on stands, washer will vibrate more due to increased height and natural flexion of stand. What kind of flooring? If ceramic tile, rubber feet may not couple to surface and provide enough friction to stay in place. I have had success with......I know it might sound stupid.....but buy a couple rubber jar opener pads and cut them into small pads. Put them under the rubber feet of stand or washer. These seem to make a better connection to the floor.

The washer bounces during spin cycle


Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.

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.

Frontload washing machine makes noise during spin cycle


call sears 1 800 4myhome they can walk you thru some troubleshooting. First thing pull back the rubber ring between door and barrel to see if anything like pens etc feel into the gap underneath. If not call for troubleshooting. Get a plan with sears then wait 30 days and call in the problem. Fix will cost less.
