LG WD-8013F Out of balance on spin cycle

Sometimes on the spin cycle the machine violently shakes,moving about the floor.
Have put on level floor etc but still does it.
Looks like a generic fault.
Any ideas.

You need to ask yourself the following and i know it sounds silly but try it
is the appliance completly level
is the floor substructure level and solid (if its on a floating floor this sometimes happens)
have you tried moving the appliance to a concrete area and tried running it there
what is load like have you balanced the washing load
have you removed all of the transit bolts and securing structures
if you have the appliance on an unstable floor try putting some old worktop/counter top or some 20mm mdf board under it
hope this helps

Why is my washing machine Miele w404 making thudding noises on spin Plse?


Unbalance load???

When in spinning cycle, does your drum start shaking violently and hitting the washer outer walls. Out of balance load.....

Is your machine on level floor. Does it have a play on legs while sitting doing nothing???

Happens for every load, then may be your washer shocks and/or top coil springs have come out or broken..

Or machine drum counter weights broken and drum going out of balance.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LQI. Has been a good machine for many years. In the past year it began vibrating violently on spin. I've watched a ton of videos to diagnose. Possibly the rear bearings? However,...


There are damper weights, usually pieces of concrete/stone attached to the side of the exterior of the tub, have a look to make sure they are not loose, missing, broken etc. Also make sure the 4 main supports (legs) are solid and not loose, cracked or corroded. If it has self leveling rear legs, make sure they are locking into position and not moving.

How do I fix a front load washer that shakes violently on the last spin cycle?


CLOTHES UNBALANCED? OR COUNTER BALANCE SUPPORTS BROKEN, AND NEED REPLACMENT? WASHERS have many different weight balancers but sounds like u need to take body off and have look at the counter weights set up while running machine, just jumper the door switch to keep a closed line. and then agin sometimes its as simple as making sure ur washer is leveled on ur floor, check ur leg adjusters as they do get funny at times..

Kenmore Whasher shakes on spin cycle


unfortunetly this is common , these new frontloads spin fast even with no pedestal these things move...
make sure the locking nuts for the legs on the pedestal are screwed securely up to frame on pedestal, also could be a floor issue depending on where it is, slooping or not solid floor.

LG wm2277hw front load shakes violently


Barry The repairman was right. The drum is out of balance because of the load amount .Thed clothes or items need to be distributed around the drom rather than just throwing in. When it comes to spin the imbalance causes the machine to shake and move across the laudry.

As it sometimes works This is probably when you are not doing a heavy load of washing, so it appears to work OK.
Pack it with less, also adjust the front legs a full turn higher than the rear so prevent walking when it spins.If you cant find the spanner that was included , just use an adjustable one.

Violent shaking on spin cycle


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

My Magtag Performa washer has been shaking in the spin cycle very violently lately. The floor has not changed, so I can't blame an uneven floor. I'm assuming the belt may need to be tighten or replaced. ...


first I would check your drain pump.. you may have something blocking the water flow... this will cause the water not to fully drain and your machine will have a out of balance load...a loose belt will just slip and make noise,,,

there is a panel in the back you can remove to check the drain pump...let me know if this is helpful...

Make sure the washer is leveled properly and all four feet are resting on the floor. If it is level, try running one cysle without any clothes in it to see it is spins without that violent shaking.. you may have also had an out of balance load.. Hope that helps!

Washer LG Model WD-8013F Noisy & vibrates badfly when spinning


hi all you poor owners of this heap of junk, i have one too with the same problems, the shaking and moving around the bathroom was stopped by welding a 1/2 inch long piece of 1 &1/2 inch dia pipe to a 2 inch square flat plate of steel then putting double sided sticky tape beetween the plate and the floor
where you want the front rubber legs to sit, this stops it from running around the floor but it still needs to adjusted to have the
same on the front two legs to stop the shaking.by leaning the machine back a bit also helps to stop it leaking so bad while filling, it is only from the condersation from the hot water going in and the poor design of the soap drawer not allowing the water to run back into the washer which can be fixed by cutting the lip off
the bottom wher the drawer slides in then running a bead of silcone in the crack between the front cover and the inside piece
then another one on the front edge to run the water back into the washer. hpoe this helps. bryan.
