My washer jumps around when spinning. this happens intermittently


if it is a front loader and on a pedestal make sure it is level not just front to back but side to side also. Here are some of the reasons a front loader shakes violently.
1-- not level
2-- unbalanced load... washing 1 item or large comforter
3-- Wrong soap.. using reg detergent instead of HE
4-- bolts mounting mach to pedestal are loose. They are located above the drawer. two for front and two for rear.
5-- Faulty shocks.. requires tech to repair
6-- unhooked springs.. requires tech to diag and repair
7-- rear bearing failure. can be checked by pushing up on top front edge of basket and looking for movement independent of outter tub. Sometimes you can feel a clicking of the bearing moving up and down when you do this. This repair usually costs more than the machine is worth if very old. Ignoring this problem can lead to more damage, water leakage, and possibly fire.

How do you install whirlpool duet pedestal


Make sure that you get the pedestal designed for your washer. The white pedestal for the GHW9400P would be LAB2700MQ. (There are slight differences in the pedestals for different series washers. The holes in the base of the washer will not line up with the holes in the pedestal for a mismatched combination.)

First if your washer has been installed, uninstall it. You need to turn off the water. Then disconnect the power cord and (carefully) the fill hoses. Loosen the hoses first and then completely remove them. Drain the hoses into a bucket. Disconnect the drain hose from the back of the washer. Use pliers to squeeze the clamp to get the drain hose loose.

Pull the washer away from the wall. Cover the area behind the washer with cardboard and tip the washer onto its back (on the cardboard).

Pull out the drawer of the pedestal. Next snap the spacers into the holes on the top of the pedestal. (These are part of the hardware kit in the drawer of the pedestal.) Remove the shipping spacers from the front of the pedestal (behind the drawer). Remove the Philips head screw from the drawer slides and pull the drawer completely out (save the screws). Push the slides back into the pedestal.

Look at the washer and remove the feet if present. Partially install two of the hex head screws from the pedestal installation kit in the bottom holes of the washer. (These are at the center back of the washer if it is standing up.) Leave the screws about 3/8" from the bottom of the washer. Move the pedestal over to the washer and slide the keyhole openings of the pedestal over the two partially installed screws. Position the pedestal against the top of the washer and insert the remaining two hex head screws. Do not tighten completely.

Align the pedestal with the base of the washer on all sides. When it is lined up, tighten the 4 screws by reaching through the drawer opening of the pedestal. Bring the washer and pedestal back upright. Reinstall the washer (remove the packaging if this was a new install). Level (front to back and side to side) the washer using the pedestal feet (again reach through the drawer opening). Make sure that all 4 feet touch the floor. Tighten all 4 locknuts.

Pull out the drawer slides and reinstall the drawer. Reinstall the Philips screws. Close the drawer.

For pictures of the install, go to the Whirlpool support site http://www.whirlpool.com/owner_center . Search for your pedestal and get the installation manual. The direct link for the LAB2700MQ0 install is http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208537141.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Installing pedestal to washer


You want to level just the pedestal in the place where you will be using it so when you put it in position mounted together later it is done. Also very easy to do first. Get the pedestal level, tighten the lock nuts, put the washer on its back. Usually you remove the washer feet, take the pedestal drawer out, screw on each side, bolt the pedestal to the washer with the four screws provided. Tip pedestal and washer up, on to something that slides easily to protect floor. There usually are some type of shipping bolts that have to be removed from back of washer before using on new units. Usually four and these have to be removed.

How do I level my machine with an accessory drawer underneath?


Do not try to level the washer. Level the feet on the pedestal AFTER the washer is installed. Just make sure the legs of the washer are all set the same on the pedestal and tightened down. Then, adjust the pedestal feet so the washer is level front-to-back and side-to-side. Once you level the unit, place your hands at opposite diagnoal corners on the top of the washer (one hand on a rear corner, the other hand on the front corner). If the washer has a firm foundation and you have the leveled the feet correctly, it should not move when you apply any pressure at these opposite corners. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer is off balance. Need to get to levelers.


I had the same problem...thanks for posting a solution. I agree with the solution posted above, but on my unit they are 1/4" HEX head screws, not phillips. Look at the illustration on page 4 here for help:

Attach pedastal to whirpool duet washing machine front loader


you will want to lay the duet unit on its back. remove the legs. put the base up to the bottom of the duet. you can use the legs as bolts and pass them thru the top of the base back into the bottom of the duet appliance, using them as bolts. I have had some people just get new bolts. this should fix you up. please rate this if it was any help.
Thanks,
David

Remove pedestal drawer from washer


First remove the top of the washer via 3 tork, 7mm hex head screws (they are hidden located on rear of washer) then you can see to line up the tub with the shipping bolts. Just put 2 in --one lower and upper opposing each other and that will be sufficient. I believe there is two screws holding the drawer in located at the track towards the front of the drawer. Now you can lean it over with no worries to remove pedestal
