It could be. The front feet have to be manually adjusted but the rear feet are self leveling. If the wood is giving enough to allow the frame to touch ground then it could cause a leveling problem. The front feet are made of plastic on the newer machines if the plastic foot is stripped out, it could be allowing the machine to become un-level during operation.

How do I balance a Kenmore 70 series washing machine.


Wood laminate flooring is never a good idea in areas that can get wet often. But, that being said, there should be leveling feet on the washer which should allow you to get it stable on the floor, if that's what your problem is. If your problem is that the washer tends to walk around the room when in the spin cycle, well that is partially due to the fact that washers often vibrate when they spin, especially when spinning large, bulky objects like quilts and comforters, that the feet on the bottom of washer are smooth plastic, and that smooth plastic feet don't stay in one place to well on wood laminate floors.

Bathtub installation


Now I see the wood stud is added support and the tub should rest on it. though it is not to hold the tub up. Like a man using a cane the cane doesn't keep a man standing by itself. Rather it helps a person be more stable that's what the stud does. Set at height for a level tub.

Here is a trick as well for supporting the back of the tub (Shimming) Get some of the expandable foam. Set everything in place like the wood ledge when you have everything in place and tub pre-fitted. Remove tub and place a line of foam along back side. Place tub in place and when foam expands and dries it will become your perfect shim. Hope this helps, thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck, Jeff

My samsung front load washer wont stay in the spin cycle and bounces the timer keeps resetting its self back to ten and it takes for ever to do a load half the time it never reaches the full spin cycle and...


there could be few problems, and your right, floor could be the problem.
Try holding it by the corners when begining a cycle, so you can see where is the problem, which corner is not leveld
(The testing: when begining a cycle puch down one corner at the time and only one, when machine apper's stable diagonaly from that corner is the problem, you need it higher)
Also there could be a problem with iner springs (that are holding the drum), one may come lose, check that if you can

I need help to level my kitchenaid fridge, and the owner manaul does not show this.


leveling refrigs, can be abit tricky, depending on level of floor especially, for the most part only the front 2 legs/wheels are going to be adjustable, the rears if need be will have to be chocked with wood shims . as a repairman for nearly 20years, i rarely "level" refrigs, , for the reason of who knows if the cabinets are level, or how level the floor is, i in turn make the refrig appear level and make sure its stable when the doors are opened and closed. not essential for level (shloud be close butno need to be perfect, id much rather a refrig tht looks good and doenst shake when door is closed, rathe then tryin to get it perfectly level and then seeing a 2 inch gap at top of cabint and flush against the bottom.
