Most common cause for the machine to shake during the spin cycle is due to a unbalanced load. A load of a couple of small bulky items or a small load in general may not be able to distribute the weight properly causing the machine to be unbalanced. It is best to wash full loads whenever possible. We have a brand new front loader as well, our first load about took the walls down...We just tossed a couple things in to see how it worked....thats how I learned to wash full loads. Now with the knowledge of why it shook so bad, we have had no more problems. Hope this helps

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating

Washer will not stop shaking during spin cycles, we have removed akll shipping bolts


Place a load in the machine use a good level to get machine perfectly level. Now put machine on spin and check the feet. Find the one that is not solid and slowly adjust it until it stops shaking. PS place level on flat top surface and level side to side and front to back.

I had the same problem you need to pull out your washer and observe which leg is uneven this should be the source of your shaking and if you use the proper tools you can solve this.

Shaking washing machine


If the shaking is during the spin cycle and you are using the High setting change it to Medium. This may fix the problem and the clothes will probably come out even dryer since the drum is not banging around.

Spin cycle - washer is shaking and jumping


Try to relevel the unit. Another suggestion is use the cycle for delicates (the spin cycle is slower). If it is still out of balance and shaking one of the dampers may have broke

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 and Spinning Unevenly


Beneath the front panel you may find screws. To have access to your filter. Check the drain to make sure it isn't clogged, also the drain hose.

Re the shaking, etc you have to check for any dampers (shocks) that have come off or broken, also springs.

Severe drum? shaking and display lights flicker during spin cycle


Loose mounting points or broken pins. If not that then possibly drum shaft could be cracked.

WAY too much shaking


Take out the four "shipping\travel" bolts in the back of the machine. Read the manual- it will tell you how to do this. John
