Re: ge top load washing machine

In each of the four corners are adjustment feet. they're white nylon bolts. use a spirit level to level the front, then put the level from the front to the back on both sides and adjust the rear feet.

The washing Machine knocks during spinning

Easy fix: Readjust the riser supports and level the washer. Some washers have adjustable feet that screw up and down. Put a level across the top of the washer and when it is level front and back, the legs are in the correct position. Some units have auto-level adjustment meaning you have to pull your washer forward and bounce it gently back toward the wall and lift the Front in the same fashion. In some cases side to side adjustment by lifting one side up and then the other can do the same thing in adjusting the levels. Either way you must LEVEL the washer in order to STOP the rattle or bounce.

GE top load profile washer won't spin. It starts

The tub hangs on 4 support rods. Lateral movement is kept in check with 4 bungy cords bolted to the top of the tub. If that washer is not level the tub will hang to one side and the fancy controls will declare an error. Make sure all your rods are good (they drag the base of the machine when worn out and make a heck of a racket) and the bungys are not stretched and the machine is level.

Excessive vibrating and banging in the spin cycle with some washes. The unit is only 1 month old. Any advice?

You have a improper installation. The machine has to be perfectly level side to side and frotnt to back. After leveling, check the feet on the bottom and see if one is bouncing on spin with a load. Adjust the bouncing foot down until machine stops bouncing.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Noisy spin dryer

make sure the washer is level.there's locking nut for each legs sometimes thy become loose and the unit becomes unlevelled after a while. Level the unit side to side and front to back and relock the nuts by tightning it against the bottom frame. If thats not the problem,run it on spin only with no load and see if it would do the same if it does'nt then your problem could just be improper loading. make sure you have enough load to cover the drum when it spins.Other wise you may have shock/spring problem but very unlikely
