Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I own a kenmore elite top loading washing machine and even though it is level foward and sideways, it shakes like crazy on every spin cylce, regardless of the load in the machine. This is on the top floor and there is a basement beneath it. I can't put spacer blocks below it due to water lines and duct work running between them. I have place a 3/4 inch piece of plywood underneath it and still have the save problem. This has happened almost from day one, but it doesn't seem normal. Any suggestions. I am fairly handy. Thanks
Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
P.S. If you installed yourself - be sure you removed the shipping pins at the bottom of the machine.
