Good Morning Chris, thank you for your inquiry! Here are a few troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause.
· First, be sure that the washer leveling legs are evenly installed.

· Verify that the unit is sitting solidly on the floor.

· The load made be out of balance. Make sure the washer is loaded properly for the setting chosen.

· Confirm all shipping material was removed during the installation process.

If the washer continues to vibrate, I would suggest consulting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the appliance.

SOURCE: brand new electrolux front load washer w/ factory

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Although you say it's level I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain!
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Spin vibrations


Make sure the legs on all four corners are down tight and even level the machine with this 4 pads. If the machine is level it will vibrate less, and then not all machines are completely quiet when working, especially on spin cycle..

Vibration during spin cycle


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.
