First, get a level and see how even it sits upon its surface. If it is un-level, just level it out. You can accomplish this by adjusting the feet under the bottom of the machine {one per corner} until the bubble in the level is centered at all four points of the washer.

Remember, righty tighty, lefty loosy.

If this does not solve your problem, try loading the washer as evenly as possible.

The belts wouldn't cause shaking, next forget about the bearing if it was bad you would have water leaking from the agitator.

Start with the easy stuff I suggest running a full cycle with the machine empty. If the shaking stops, then your loading it unevenly. However if it does not help the problem then first check the foot pegs under the machine adjust them until the machine is level, if that does not help.

Then the problem in internal, first check the mounting brackets for the motor anything loose/broken, if so tighten/replace brackets. If everything is ok then you have to remove the top panel of the machine.

There is the tub that spins on the bearing the " the active tub"(the one the clothes go in obviously) and around that tub is the "stationary tub", between the two are what they call "snubs" these are either rubber wheels, bushings or on cheaper models just a rubber boot that works as a shock absorber if you will, and keeps the movement of the the "active tub" with in its axis. If a wheel is broken, or a bushing/boot is torn or broken then there lies your problem.

I hope this helps.

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer won't stop spinning with 1 minute on timer- it continues until I hit cancel. I don't like to babysit a machine but have to make sure it doesn


If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

LG front load washer shakes on spin cycle even though it is level how can I fix it so it doesn't travel around the laundry room?


Either replace the friction dampers or relube with Nulon 90 or similar. The pins that hold the dampers should be replaced after being removed. The top & bottom halves of dampers seperate, you only need remove 1 pin (top or bottom) if relubing.
Do not apply any lubricant to the pins!!!

My washing machine will not spin, it will wash and then make a buzzing sound during the 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.
