Question about KitchenAid KHWS01PMT Front Load Washer
The washer is on top of the pedestal. It vibrates and makes a lot of noise when it spins. It has never been right. Any suggestions.
I just found out that the feel of my pedestal came loose causing the back of the washer to be higher than the front. I don't know if yours is the same, but mine has sounded like a helicopter taking off. I screwed the back feet back in.
I've not yet uprighted the washer to find out if it's resolved--I need the heavy-lifting members of my household for that--but I do hope this will return the washer to a far more normal sound.

Double check the screws holding the washer to the pedestal to make sure they are tight and make sure all the jam nuts on the leveling legs are tight. Loose jam nuts are the most common cause of this.
If they are tight, loosen the right front leg and screw it up until the weight is off the floor. Then run it back down until it contacts the floor. Put the washer in high spin and tighten it down to the floor until you get the spot where there is the least vibration. Tighten jam nut, and check it again in spin with a load of clothes.
Post back and let me know how this works.
