Re: shaking

We have finally resolved our problem thanks to annetipu's note about someone mentioning a rod or pin that had to be removed. On the Frigidaire website, you will find the following:

14. Vibrating sounds. Tumble action washers: Shipping bolts or braces are still in the washer.

Remove 3 shipping bolts, 3 yellow spacers and 3 metal "P" clamps from the back of the washer. Remove the access panel from the front of the unit and remove 2 yellow shipping braces and large Styrofoam shipping block. Replace the access panel.

This solved our problem. Washer is wonderful now!

I pet the new machine on quick cycle it takes more then 1 1/2 hrs styed forever on spin then i had to unplug it. also shakes uncontrollably

You will need to make sure it is level. With the machine off rotate the plugs till the washing machine is level. If that doesn't work, you will need vibratins pads under the feet to stop the vibration and allow it to cycle normally.

try adjusting the feet on the bottom of the washer the floor may not be level to adjust the legs turn them with a wrench or if the lock nuts are not tight turn the legs clockwise as you look at the front of the machine till all four feet are sung on all 4 corners. This is the most common problem. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya

"whole new machine" per technician-STILL shakes uncontrollably

I had the same problem. I fixed it but not sure how long it will last. There are two load balancing springs one on either side of the drum. In my case one of them was apparently assembled without the plastic bushing where it attaches to the frame of the washer. This caused the spring to wear a slot all the way through the sheet metal and fall off. This left one spring attached pulling the drum to one side causing an unbalanced load. I ordered a new plastic bushing and spring online for about $40 for both. I then used JB Weld to fill in the gap where the sheet metal was worn through then reassembled with new parts. Been fine now for about 6 months.

Shaking uncontrollably during spin

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

My Kenmore 80 series washer shakes uncontrollably in spin cycle.

try this
the washer needs to be leveled on a flat surface to properly function rock forwards then backwards
washing machine have stablizers on there leg pegs this insures it has a proper setting on floor
if this did not help there is a spring under neith that you did not load back to bucket to keep in place
most likely it just needs to be rocked you will know if pegs are seated properly
