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 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.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

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.
