There is a switch mounted on the cabinet wall which is supposed to cut out the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced. This switch may be bad. Also, check the suspension. Lift the top, check 4 rods mounted in rubber buffers. One may be loose.

Brand new wahse was just installed. The spin cycle vibrates so hard that it moves on the floor and vibrates the whole room. Shipping plug has been removed and washer is level.


Hello. This happened to me, also. We removed the back panel of the washer and removed the styrofoam blocks around the drum. These are for shipping purposes and should have been removed at the time of installation. Hope this helps!

MY WASHER DOES GREAT UNTIL THE SPIN CYCLE, THEN IT GOES CRAZY. IT SPINS SO FAST THAT IT VIBRATES INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM... ITS ALL I CAN DO TO HOLD IT IN PLACE.. WHAT IS CAUSEING THIS. CAN IT BE...


We picked up a Frigidaire Infinity front loading washing machine. After the first load was washed as it was drying the machine started shaking violently and was moving around the room. We tried a few different things: load sizes, spin speeds, trying to make it even, holding it down, we had no luck. We had skipped removing the shipping hardware. Although it does say IMPORTANT, the importance was placed on keeping them for future use, when shipping, so we figured we could just leave them in. WRONG. They are long bolts! Once we removed them the machine purred during the spin cycle like a little kitten.

On spin cycle machine vibrates and makes a load banging sound especially on the final spin.


Hi,
When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

Our Kenmore Elite front loader vibrates when it kicks into the high spin cycle. What should we do about this?


if located in upper floor laundry room,you may need to compensate a weak floor by putting an absorption pad under all four legs of the washer...if the dryer next to the washer vibrates when washer is spinning,the floor is the problem,not the washer

Kenmore Elite shaking during spin cycle


Moved a Kenmore Elite and when we put it back in place it vibrates loudly. We tried leveling it and that has not worked. Any ideas?

My washer vibrates so much it actually moves the appliance. Yes, it is level. I also took the clothes out of the washer and tried the spin cycle with out clothes in it and it still vibrates.


If you call LG they actually have some rubber pads to go under the unit to stop it from sliding and it also helps with the vibrations. Part number is 4620ER4002B.
I know of people who have also gotten a thick rubber mat, stal mat, and put it under the unit. They claim that it works wonderfully.
