Question about Maytag MAH8700AWM Neptune Front Load Washer
We just bought an LG Washer frontloader with Steam function. We also bought the pedestals. It is as level as one can get it, and although we havent placed the brackets on from the pedestal to the washer, i dont think that would be the problem. It has a terrible vibration to it, and it almost shakes down the whole house. Ok, thats an exaggeration, but it shakes so much that you cant even focus on the screen, and you can feel it on the floor, and it even shakes the dryer beside it.
Before you ask, yes, all the packing bolts are out. All 4 of them, and there is no packing underneath. Having the same problems as everyone else with the washer on a pedestal. Excessive vibration, walking across floor, and beating itself into the side of the dryer. There's got to be some way to stabilize the top of the machine. I've considered straps connected to the wall behind it and perhaps wrapping around the machine or bolted into the back. The floor is not the problem. It's just perched up there too high on a pedestal for such high rpm's. I'm determined, though, to invent a way to anchor it as I have no problem with the machine otherwise.
Any ideas not yet been tried?
I have reduced the extract vibration issue by securing the washer to the dryer. This increases the effective base dimension. This is not a complete solution, but it does help to reduce the vibration.

Make sure your locknuts on your pedestal are tightened all the way up
