Try leveling the washer. Check for play along the diagonal corners of the washer cabinet by applying downward pressure. If there is any play at all, the washer will shake during spin and the legs must be leveled.

You have br put your heavy washer on a floor that would be condemned for structural weakness if a building inspector saw it. Try placing reinforcing pads or pieces of plywood on the floor under the washer.

Get a lot of vibration on the high spin cycle. Looks like I need to replace the bearings. Can you replace just the bearings? I saw the whole drum can be replaced.


It depends on the make and model of the machine you have. Some drums are bolted together with a front and a back half that split apart. some are heat sealed at the point of manufacture and can't be split. If you take the top off your machine, it should be pretty cleat if the 2 halves are bolted together (You will see bolts). Just be aware that for the noviice, this is a nightmare job. Not only do you have to get the drum out, you then have to knock out the old bearings with ppopriatly sized drifts, without damaging the seats they sit in. THEN you have to get the new ones in without doing any damage to the bearings ot the seats, then you have to get the seal between the 2 halves to seal without any leaks. I recondition machines for a living and I avoid bearing swaps like the plague. I would seriously consider consigning the machine to the scrapheap, rather than doing it yourself!

Vibrates when it spins


Here are a few quick facts on washing machine vibration.
  1. All washing machines and dryer vibrate. Dryers usually have less vibration than washers because the load is only wet clothes (as opposed to a drum of water and clothes). Front loading washing machines cause high frequency vertical oscillation while top loading washers usually have horizontal oscillation.
  2. Almost all front loading washing machines are not recommended for use on standard joist-construction floors (most common floor type, compared to a concrete slab sub-floor). Manufactures like GE, LG, Maytag, Samsung, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Bosch and more, all recommend installing a pad like Silent Feet under the washing machine to absorb the vibration.
  3. The only alternative to using Silent Feet pads to prevent structural damage is costly upgrading of the sub-floor. This usually involves adding a second layer of plywood sub-floor and adding sister boards to the rafters that support the floor. But even this won't reduce the amount of vibration noise that you hear. Sub-floor upgrades can cost thousands of dollars.
  4. Vibration can also cause appliance "walking" (unwanted movement) usually during the spin cycle. Simply installing a pad designed to prevent walking can solve this problem and mean that you'll never have to reposition your washer after every load again. Both Original Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet prevent walking, however for washers that move a lot or stacked units it is recommended that you install Anti-Walk Silent Feet for the best results.
You were not specific in either type or model. I hope the above information helps. Also, the size of the loads plays a great part in how a machine functions. have a nice day

Whirlpool washing machine 6alsr7244mw3 always out of balance in spin cycle. Machine balanced/level on concrete floor and doesn't matter what size the load is, in it.


A very common call I get on Whirlpool built direct drive washers, and one of very few problems they have, is that the machine vibrates like it's out of balance when spinning even without any clothes in the basket. Sometimes it'll walk across the floor if this is allowed to worsen.The cause is nearly always support pads. The entire mechanism rests on these three small plastic pads, and when they wear even a little bit, the machine will vibrate like crazy in spin, like its load is badly out of balance. Replacing these pads (part 285744, around 10 for the set will nearly always correct this problem. And they aren't hard to replace if you re just a little handy Here s how Unplug the washer. Remove the 2 Phillips screws that retain the console. On some machines, these are hidden under console end caps that must be pried off. On newer models they re on the back of the console Rotate the console fwd then up and back it will hang back out of the way if the washer s away from the wall far enough.Unplug the white lid switch plug and pry up the 2 large clips that hold the cabinet to the washer back panel.Tilt the entire cabinet forward and it ll unhook from the retainers on the base. Lift the cabinet off and set aside (not as heavy as it sounds With the cabinet off you ll see 3 large horizontal springs, one in each corner of the support 'tripod and one smaller, vertical one in the left-rear that counterbalances the motor's weight. Unhook all 4 of these springs and insert a small piece of 1 by (5 8 or 3 4 thick) board to prop the mechanism up, to access the pads one at a time. Insert the piece of wood between pad locations, on a side of the support triangle a helper's handy here Use a little lighter fluid to clean the mating surface of the support plate that these pads ride against before inserting each new one. Be careful not to scratch the support plate when working under it it needs to be smooth and contaminate-free. Knock the old pads out one at a time, by lightly tapping on their mounting pins from underneath with a hammer. Put each new pad in place in its mounting holes, carefully remove the wooden 'shim then stand up and push down ******* the tub on that corner. You ll hear and feel the pad snap into its mounting holes.Repeat this process for each of the other two pads mounted on the support tripod' (do the rear, 'fun' one last after you have experience replacing the other two and your washer will behave a whole lot better in the spin cycle. And if you have any trouble finding these support pads locally, let me know. I keep lots of them in stock. You can order a set here Oh, and remember to reach around and pat yourself on the back! You just saved yourself at least 100.00

Our Kenmore Elite front loader vibrates when it kicks into the high spin cycle. What should we do about this?


if located in upper floor laundry room,you may need to compensate a weak floor by putting an absorption pad under all four legs of the washer...if the dryer next to the washer vibrates when washer is spinning,the floor is the problem,not the washer

FRIGIDARE FRONT LOAD WASHER,2+YRS OLD ON FINAL HIGH SPEED SPIN MACHINE MAKES LOUD VIBRATION NOISE AND FIND NEED TO SHUT DOWN DUE TO FRANTIC VIBRATION AND NOISE.


It is possible the bearings on the motor that spins the canister could be going bad especially at the high speed. This could also be from clothes getting unbalanced in the final spin cycle. Hope this helps. This could still possibly under warranty!

Vibrating only on final spin

Washer is "walking" during the spin cycle


I have the same Duet that vibrates heavily during spin cycle. Leveled the unit with no success (our unit is mounted on the high base). Long story short, I went to Lowes and purchased a package of 4"X5" self stick foam rubber pads called Grippers by Wasman Consumer Group and paid a low price of $3.50. Since the washer walked forward, I cut one of the two Pads in the package in half, removed the sticky side paper protector and centered a half, sticky side to washer pad, to each front washer pad. The problem was solved.

I made sure the round floor pads of the washer were tight and the unit was level before attaching the Grippers. Hope this helps.
