Kenmore (frigidaire) front load washer shakes

My new washer shakes while spinning. A service man told me to check and make sure the shipping staps had been removed from the back of the washer (inside a panel). I opened the panel, but did not see any strap. Is there something else that ties this thing down during shipping that might not have been loosened or removed? I have the washer on soft tile floor (it's kinda spongy). The service man said this was the best floor to have it on since it absorbs some of the shock. I am thinking about putting a 1/2 inch plywood base under it. Will that make it worse?

The ply wood will probably make it better. If this is your first front loader then this is all going to be new to you. Front loaders have so much force during the spin cycle and all of that force goes straight to the floor. It will shake like crazy and sound like a plane flying through your house if your floor is not strong. The best thing to do would be to hire someone to come out and go under the house to stabilize the floor under the washer. A simple 2x4 under the washer will do and minimize the shaking. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help you.

Frigidaire fahe4044mwo shakes in spin cycle


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FAHE4044MW0, is shaking in the spin cycle. First, please check and make sure that your washer is resting firmly on the ground and does not move if you try to shake it. Secondly, make sure that all shipping bolts have been removed when you installed your appliance. Thirdly, make sure the load is not too small. Add a couple of similar items to even out the load. Lastly, make sure that the wash load is distributed evenly. Stop your washer and rearrange the load if you need to. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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.

Front loader shakes bad, is level, and on a concrete floor


You will have harmonic inbalance about 800 rpm on most front load machines, causing them to shake termporarily as it ramps up on the spin cycle. Be sure to check if the shipping bolts have been removed. This is the most common mistake most people make while installing front load machines. If you don't remove the shipping bolts, it will cause most machines to shake violently and can cause damage.

Washer machine is shaking terrible during the high speed spin


Alot of times with front loader machines they will shake at high speed even if the machine is level. The floor may not sturdy enough. You can put a piece of 3/4" plywood or something like that under you machine. I know putting plywood under your machine is not the best looking thing, but it should help the shaking. The product just needs to to sturdy.

Shaking


We have finally resolved our problem thanks to annetipu's note about someone mentioning a rod or pin that had to be removed. On the Frigidaire website, you will find the following:

14. Vibrating sounds. Tumble action washers: Shipping bolts or braces are still in the washer.

Remove 3 shipping bolts, 3 yellow spacers and 3 metal "P" clamps from the back of the washer. Remove the access panel from the front of the unit and remove 2 yellow shipping braces and large Styrofoam shipping block. Replace the access panel.

This solved our problem. Washer is wonderful now!
