Question about Washing Machines
It is off balance how do i level it
Check the levelness of the washer by placing a level in the crease between the top of the washer and the cabinet, first on the front and then on the side. If the washer is not level, adjust the relevant feet up or down as necessery by twisting the feet. Repeat the process until washer is level. Tight the locknuts tight against the washer cabinet to prevent washer's vibration. Good luck!

Even after leveling my Frigidaire washer on a pedestal, the washer shook the house during ramping up on spin cycle. I found some Shake Away pads at Lowes. They are small pads that just go under each foot of the washer. I'm not sure how they work but THEY DO. The best 30 bucks I ever spent

Double check the screws holding the washer to the pedestal to make sure they are tight and make sure all the jam nuts on the leveling legs are tight. Loose jam nuts are the most common cause of this.
If they are tight, loosen the right front leg and screw it up until the weight is off the floor. Then run it back down until it contacts the floor. Put the washer in high spin and tighten it down to the floor until you get the spot where there is the least vibration. Tighten jam nut, and check it again in spin with a load of clothes.
Post back and let me know how this works.
