SOURCE: LG front loaded washing machine vibrates during

If its on a pedistal then that will raise your center of gravity and cause the unit to be less sturdy during a spin. It could also be due to a weak floor. You may want to try a product called "shake away pads". The probably sell them at like home depot or lowes. They will run you about 40 bucks but they just go under the legs and help absorb some shock. Good luck _MJ_

Top loading washer vibrates quite a lot during spin cycle


If the machine is level and the feet are properly touching the pads it may be a fault in one of the suspension components or it could simply be the way the load is sitting in the machine during spin cycle. Towels get heavy when soaked and if the load is not balanced inside it will make the machine vibrate. Have you tried the machine without any clothes in it to rule that out?

Rocks while in spin cycle


Hi, I believe the cause of your washing machine's "rocking" problem is the result of the machine not being properly balanced (on all four legs). Let me explain. On the bottom of your washer and dryer, are four "adjustable" legs. These legs screw up or screw down. If you adjust these four legs so that the washer is perfectly square with your floor, your rocking problem will go away. This should do the trick. Good Luck!

Bad vibration


No belt, its the stabilizer springs that absorb the movement could be broken. You may be also overloading the washer and too much weight is on one side of the washer. You will need to distribute the weight evenly. Another thigs. ALso try adjusting the feet on the bottom of the washer first so that it doesnt rock when not moving and see if it helps, if not put less clothes in the washer and if those fail its time to open and check the springs

Whirlpool lsr7233eq0. The machine is level but


Grab back of washer on both sides and tip towards you and drop gently back. This will level the back legs which are self adjusting. Sometimes they stick You may have to pry with a screwdriver down towards floor to free them if this is the case.

Washer moves during the spin cycle


Due to strong vibration during spinning definitely the machine will stop. All you have to do is to check your load if equally distributed from the tub. To eliminate the vibration and the movement of your washer you need to align the four legs of your washer using level tools. Just put the level on the top of the four sides (front side, left side, right side and backside) then make necessary adjustment if needed on the 4 leg of the washer. Also check the water level of the balancer and the mounting position from the top of the tub.

Off balance


make sure you have all the shipping material out of unit..4 bolts in back and styrofoam under tub if so ,then get a adjustable wrench ,,,put unit in drain spin cycle or spin cycle only..when unit gets to fastest spin ,,thats will come when its about 8 minutes left..tighten each leg lock nut on unit until unit stops vibrating..only turn the lock nut not the leg..only adjust lock nut on legs in high speed spin

Walking during the spin cycle


Is your floor level, first thing. Okay, the rear 2 legs are not adjustable so leave it. The front 2 legs should be screwed up (ie the machine should be at the lowest level in front) and there are check nuts to tighten inside the body of the machine. Check the machine it it rocks by using your hand against it. Adjust accordingly, this is if your floor is not too good. You shd not hv any problem. If the rocking persists check inside machine, behind after getting he plug off wall, maybe shockabsorbers hv come off, springs?.....

and rate me please if helped.............
