Place small pieces of rubber under each of the four feet. Once you can stop the machine from sliding, it will not go off balance. If you know a roofer who does rubber roofing, that works really well. Got an old inner tube. Try that! Good Luck, Eric Campion

Washer vibrates alot


The following link may give you some pointers on what to check on your kenmore Elite to resolve the vibration problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3633026-front_loader_excessive_vibration

This could be a matter of the legs becoming unlevel during the move, a shock absorber becoming damaged, or it could be the new location. These front loaders need a good firm and level foundation. Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

I bought a new Kenmore washer a year ago. It was installed by sears and worked great until I moved it to install new linoleum flooring. Now it vibrates like crazy on the spin cycle. I read the procedure...


if the sheet metal body was the only thing touching the dolly it would be fine. if the drum and motor sat on it, it could have popped off or broken one of the 4 suspension arms.you can check this by lifting the machine bit or popping the top off. this is the only thing i can think of based on your detailed description.

Our Kenmore Model 110 70 Series washer is overfilling the tub on all load sizes. Can you please suggest what the problem might be? We moved recently and the washer was working fine before the move, but...


If you just recently moved, you may have a simple problem of a disconnected air hose on the pressure switch. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

The washer water level is controlled by a pressure switch behind the load level selector knob inside the operator console. Often what appears to a major problem turns out to be something minor. Since you moved recently, the vibration from moving the washer may have caused the small plastic air hose on the pressure switch to fall off. Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Major shaking during spin cycle


I have the exact same washing machine with the same problem. It is a poor design and Maytag knows it. We should be entitled to a refund. This was a very expensive machine.

Excessive vibration on spin cycle.


Front loaders are prone to vibration problems. Don't want to go into the technical details of why, but it's important that they're placed on very solid surface (preferably concrete or tile), and checked that their feet have been adjusted so that the machine is level. Unfortunately, most people don't have a concrete pad for their washer. One simple option to consider is to provide dampening of the vibrations. This can be done very simply as this one fellow demonstrates. The main thing to keep in mind with this solution is that it is merely trying to dampen the vibrations. Don't be too forceful in your own solution (think lightly touching the top of a vibrating tuning fork with your finger to stop the tone).

Excessive vibration in spin cycle


Be sure the washer is on a solid surface, no plywood or skid platforms. Then be sure to lock in the front levelling legs.

Kenmore 22932 Top load washer has excessive vibration at end of spin cycle


IF THE FLOOR IS NOT ABSOLUTELY STABLE, IT WILL MAGNIFY A SMALL VIBRATION INTO A LARGE ONE. PUT SOMETHING ON THE DRYER IF IT SETS NEXT TO THE WASHER, AND TURN ON THE WASHER INTO SPIN. IF THE ITEM ON THE DRYER SHAKES, THE FLOOR IS MOVING.
IF THE WASHER IS ON CARPET, REMOVE THE CARPET OR CUT HOLES IN IT WHERE THE FEET ARE SO IT IS NOT SETTING ON THE CARPET. THE CARPET AND PAD WILL BE TOO SOFT FOR THE WASHER TO SET STABLE.
ALSO, PICK UP ON THE REAR OF THE WASHER TO RESET THE AUTO LEVELING REAR LEGS. YOU SHOULD HEAR THEM MOVE AND RESET WHEN YOU SET THE WASHER BACK DOWN.
