I resolved the issue by placing 2 pieces of wood. Since it appeared to be not properly balanced.

Softener tray is not draining during wash cycle


This tray empties during the spin cycle not wash cycle. Is the agitator spinning during the spin cycle? If so, you are getting softener on clothes during this cycle as required.

Spin vibrations


Make sure the legs on all four corners are down tight and even level the machine with this 4 pads. If the machine is level it will vibrate less, and then not all machines are completely quiet when working, especially on spin cycle..

My maytag washer shake a end of rinse cycle.


After the rinse cycle, the washer rapidly spins the tub to get as much water out of the clothes as it can. It works basically the same way as a salad spinner. If the weight of the clothes in the washer is not balanced, the washer will shake and maybe even jump around during the spin cycle. This is pretty normal. If all of your jeans end up on one side, and your t-shirts on the other, the jeans will hold more water, their side of the tub will be heavier, and the washer will shake a lot during the spin cycle.
If the washer is shaking too much, open it after the rinse cycle (wait for the tub to stop before reaching in) and spread the clothes out evenly in the tub. Try to balance the weight. Then close the lid/door and let it continue spinning.

Hi,

One of my favorite problems!

We often think that washers are level BUT one of the 4 feet probably requires adjusting downwards so that it really presses against the floor. So-

Remove power.

Press very firmly against one front corner and in towards the centre (sorry- I'm a retired Englishman living in SW France!) and try to rock it. If it moves even the slightest it's the foot at that corner which requires adjusting- with the open-ended spanner which came with the machine (what spanner?)! An adjustable will do and make sure that the foot is adjusted downwards so that it does really press against the floor, almost to the point of raising the corner but not quite.
If not that corner then do the same with the other.
Once adjusted lock all 4 feet by screwing the lock nuts up tight to the base of the washer so they will not move. You should not be able to rock it anymore.
If, after this action, the washer STILL shakes during the spin cycle, I suspect the drum suspension springs/shock-absorbers as being faulty..........................but I would bet that adjustment will cure it!

Good luck,

John C

Kenmore Oasis HE shakes violently during spin cycle


Machine legs should be adjusted so that machine is level and standing on all four legs. The load in the machine should be evenly distributed. Utube has an excellent video on washing machine repair.

Kenmore he2 washer shakes violently


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle


I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck

syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
