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.

GE Front Load washer shakes whenever any type of load is put in. GE service has been out at least 4 times and say that its fine..perfectly level, etc


All front loaders shake to some extent. It depends on the balance of the load. It is especially evident in the spin cycle due to the high speeds. Also these machines are best placed on a solid cement floor. They can shake an entire house if on the first or second floor and the floors are not well reinforced.

4 month old washer is so loud it sounds like someone dropping a trash can to the pavement from 5 feet high


Check to make sure it's level. Number one cause of vibration is not being level. Number two cause is soft floor and what I call "Sympathetic vibration" where the floor shakes a bit and it seems like it's in time with the vibration on the washer. It then magnifies the vibration and makes it worse.

If it's level and on a solid floor, you need to get it serviced under warrenty.

My Kenmore Elite Front Loading Washer is shaking very bad when it's on the spin cycle. When i level it, it's ok for a while but slowly goes back to skaking again. Any Ideas?


there are struts on the bottom of the drum and springs on top. may try replacing these but I think if you level it well and make sure the feet are tightened down well it should stay quiet. it the feet are not tightened well they will vibrate and come out of adjustment

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the


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.

VIBRATION


It should have should leveling legs under it. Screw upwards all the legs. Means your washer is now at its lowest level. Shake the washer with both your hands. Adjust the leg where the shake is, upwards or downwards to stop the shake. When the shake is totally removed, lock the legs with the check nut above the leg; meaning there 2 nuts, one above the leg & one under. You most probably have to check out your corner of the machine, where the problem lies. It is important that you lock the nuts or the problem will recur.

Washer vibrates and seems to be off balance


hey i have the same problem and have been looking for help we bought ours last night and have tried several times to wash clothes. We're level front to back and diagonally. The bolts on the feet are screwed tight to the appliance and still in slow spin mode it sounds like it is off balance and it vibrates and shakes and is kinda scary if you ask me.
