Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Balancing problem Frigidaire stackable front load washer/dryer

Frigidaire stackable front load washer/dryer combo. Washer not balanced and vibrates excessively, out of level, moves around too much therfore losing efficiency of spinning cycle. Afraid it will damage washer or counter top. It is located on the second floor off of our bedroom above our kitchen on a vinyl floor in a corner that is structurally sound. Floor not level. Unit has one inch side to side distance between outside wall and counter top. Should I just rebalance it using the levelling legs or is there some way of fastening it to the wall or floor or counter to reduce vibration etc...or should it be fastened. Looking for a permanent solution.

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.

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.

Washer vibrates during spin cycle


Front loaders have to be situated on solid flooring such as a basement or they will vibrate.
