One possibility is your have not levelled it correct. The rears are not adjustable. Tighten up the front fully then adjust from that point. When the washer is not on, try to move the machine with both your hands - it should not shake - then it is fine.

Another is that one of your shocks or springs could have come off. For this you have to open up behind to check and refit. Caution all this with the mains off the wall.

Washer makes loud noise (seemingly unbalanced) while spinning


Suggest making sure all four (4) screw leg adjusters are set correctly i.e. does it wobble if you shake like a "pin ball machine", when not in use? If yes, adjust the screw legs in each corner. To ensure the machine is sitting level and not able to shake... God Luck

Washer was making a very loud shaking sound in the spin cycle, the noise stopped the spinning stopped and I smelled burning.washer will not spin


I had a shakey washer that I bought open box from "circuit city", it was a return.

I was to lazy to learn why the washer would shake and a technician told me to manually balance the wash load in the drum.

Later, I got into the washer and lubed up the rotating shafts and rockers. The washer lost all its shakes with the mechanics properly lubed. From the factory the mechanics were never properly lubed.

Tight mechanics that are supposed balance the spin cycle by moving could be part of what is getting warm. The belt spinning the washer also takes a beating when the drum shakes.

Get a good discount on your washer first, and then lube the mechanics. Everything about the washer is meant to work. If the mechanics are too tight you'll have shaking.

It shakes so violently, it knocked 2 holes in the wall. During the spin cycle, it also turned completely around backwards!! It's so loud it practically shakes the whole house.


take bottom panel off,check the shocks,if it is making loud noise it's probably spider gear,if you keep using it the boot could rip off and you'll have a flood,get rid of washer it will cost as much to fix washer that you could buy a new one but that's up to you to decide

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

Rattling noise during spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
