Front load washers

I am building a platform for my new front load washer. I will secure the platform to the garage floor, but does the washer need to be secured to the platform by bolting it down? I have a friend who has one and it vibrates and moves on her tile floor so I felt it might be good to bolt it down???

Not advisable to bolt down; for if there is a problem with springs, etc you will not know - for the machine is secure. And serious damage will occur while the machine remains bolted down. Your friend has a problem with her shocks or springs and requires to be looked into.

A friend of mine built an 18 inch high wooden base to raise his wife's washer & dryer because of her bad back, and he had no trouble with it. Speaking as a carpenter, I would make sure that your base is designed strong enough to hold the weight of both machines plus the water that will be in the washer. Use 3/4 inch plywood for the top of the base, with a 2x4 frame underneath. If it will be sitting directly on a cement floor, use treated lumber to avoid wood rot.

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the

Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

New front load washer dryer is vibrating badly when drying

Q - My washer keeps moving around n the floor, is there any simple things that I can check ?
A - 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

Walking Washer

due to weight and normal motion during wash/spin a very sturdy floor is necessary under front loads also some floors are a little slick and sliding may occur ck for weak floor and maybe some kind ok rough cushion under feet to reduce sliding also if on pedistals even more vibration may occur be sure all screws in pedistal are secure usually 4 from top onto bottom of washer also adj legs to lower unit as close to floor as possible and tighten lock nuts

Walking during the spin cycle

Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
