    My machine is making a loud noise in the end of the wash and rinse cycles. We have leveled it out and now it is louder and rougher.

Maytag washing machine walks across floor during spin cycle


Did you set the back feet before leveling? On most units to set and lock the back feet you need to pull the top towards you so that the back is raised off the floor, then set it down again, this will release the feet and lock then down. The you level the two front feet. After this is done you must make sure your load is balanced. Distribute the items as evenly as you can in the tub. Once it gets to the spin cycle if its walking or shaking a lot, stop it and redistribute the items more evenly in the tub. Also try not to overload the unit or combining many heavy items with few light ones. If this is a new machine, did you remove the shipping locks from the back before using it? They have plastic strips attached to them, make sure they have all been removed, as well as any shipping bolts.

Vibrates then starts walking across floor


LG washing machines are very finicky with being leveled, they must be 100% level, and squared up on all sides. Be sure to lock the nuts in place, once you level it, to where it needs to be. They are also finicky with certain floor surfaces, more leveling may be required.

Washing machine walks


The problem MAY be fixed. I went to http://www.fixya.com/support/t14304-washing_machine_walks_across_floor , made sure shipping bolts were out, then discovered nuts that clamp the feet were loose. They are now tight with unit re-leveled. Testing is in progress.

Model MAH9700 - Washer travels across floor in the spin cycle


I suppose that the repairmen would know than I would, but I do know that any washing machine that is not level will walk and vibrate and really shutter on the spin cycle. I would try to level (using a level on the top part of the machine that is flat, if there is such a portion) the machine so that all four feet (pads) are secure with their locking nuts up against the body so that they can't turn and cause the machine to go out of level.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
