there is a concrete block (a counter weight) inside the unit. maybe it fell off the bracket. remove back panel (after unplugging) and check it.

SOURCE: drum out of balance

Hi Gerald, directly below the spring where it attaches to the basket suspension is a small hole, use a flash light to locate. If you get a chance, have you seen any dark metal shaving in the machine?

SOURCE: Washer drum shakes excessively during fast spin

y shaped piece that contains the spindle that attatches to the basket and allows it to spin is corroded and cracking. you can't buy just the spindle bracket, you must buy the basket too. you'll be buying the front part of the drum too, if you wait to long.

What is cause of loud vibration noise


Hi,
In most cases, vibration sounds come from which ever helps the drum to spin with no resistance, In most cases those would be drum support wheels or bearings depending on the model.
In some rare cases, blower or belt pulley could also cause similar symptoms.

My washing machine spin drum started making lot of noise and started vibrating a lot.


Not sure why this has happened in a top loader but if its less than a month old call the shop you purchased from , they should still be liable for repair or replacement .any older call the manufacturer for repair.

While drying the drum makes suddenly a big noise and shakes a lot


Hi


Distribute the load of clothes when you put it in. Make sure they are balanced properly. If it's thumping during the spin cycle, stop it, open it up, move some clothes from the fuller side to the less full side, and see if that helps. Replace the springs inside the machine which suspend the washing drum. Open it up, take a look of it. Perhaps they're all saggy and this is permitting excessive vibration.

Put something under the machine to stop it from transmitting the vibrations to the floor of the house. An old sock folded several times and placed under each of the four feet may help. Rubber or foam will also work. Also, make certain the machine is level from front to back and side to side. Most washing machines have a large weight attached to the drum, usually a concrete block. It's supposed to prevent too much vibration. Check that one or more of the bolts holding it on haven't come loose.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Clothes washer vibration during spin cycles


the vibration and noise is most likely from the drum bearings wearing out to test the bearings try this out,,,
open the door, hold the top of the drum and lift it up, if it has any free lift in it the bearings are going, now spin the drum by hand and you should here the rumble off the bearings

Sounds like you have some sort of obstruction in the drum, and this is stopping it draining, thereby when it goes into spin the water is being forced out of the dispenser by centrifugal force.
Try turning the drum by hand, and if you feel a lot of resistance, then you have got something stuck in the drum.

thanks.

Washer problems


Hi there!

The problem is probably the main drum bearing at the back.

Isolate power and water supplies.

The top will have to come off,(screws along top edge at back), then the motor mount slackened to remove the belt. Then try rotating the drum by hand, If the noise is still there, check for any items lodged between metal drum, and the outer plastic wash tub. If everything is clear, The noise will be from the rear bearing, which needs to be replaced.

I can assist you further with this.

Knocking noise on spinning


it may cause more damage to other damper/suspension components if used. confirm exact fault- also check concrete weights for security.
