SOURCE: forgot to remove shipping bolts

Probably not, but I bet it did a little jumping around and floor vibrating. Those bolts just lock the tub in place so that it doesn't fall off the tub hangers.

SOURCE: Where exactly are the shipping

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For most washing machines they are normally found by removing the top and can then be seen holding the drum firmly to the supporting frame. I presume that this is a new washer and not a non-new one that has just started bouncing violently? It will probably require proper balancing as well so here is some FixYa/ John C value-added on how carry it out (pre-typed of course!)

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.


If these have assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

If a front load washer is being shipped with only 3 shipping bolts ( from korea to USA),would the washer be OK or there could be possible damage to the drum/washer in anyway?


3 bolts will be ok, The drum cannot move and as long as the other 3 bolts are intact and not broken then there won't be any damage to the machine.

I recently moved and the movers removed two bolts from the back of the machine...should I replace those bolts


No do not replace the shipping bolts. I assume you have a front loading washer. The tub is secured by bolts during transport. Then they have to be removed so that the washer will operate properly without damaging the machine.

Many machine manuals are available online. For example, LG washers manuals are available at their site and under more information for models sold by Home Depot (http://www.homedepot.com/Appliances-Laundry-Clothing-Care-Washers-Front-Load-Washers/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xr5Zbv6h/h_d2/Navigation?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&omni=c_Front%20Load%20Washers). The LG front loading washers use 4 bolts with retainers. If they are not removed, the machine will have severe vibration and noise. The vibration can damage the unit.

I hope this helps.

(if you have an top loading washer, shipping bolts are less common. If you provide the model of the washer, I'll see if it is one for which I know the shipping instructions.)

My Frigidaire Affinity dryer has started vibrating more and more during operation. Is the motor going bad or is there another problem?


Hi

Try the following to reduce the noise--

Washer is not resting firmly on floor. Move washer so it rests firmly on floor. Adjust leveling legs. NOTE: Some shaking of the washer is normal without moving across the floor.
• Shipping bolts and foam blocks have not been removed during installation. Check out the installation instructions for removing shipping bolts and foam blocks.
• Wash load unevenly distributed in drum. Stop washer and rearrange wash load.

Please post back for any further assistance.

Transport Screw


The "transport or shipping" bolts are located at the rear panel of the washer. There are four of these bolts used to support the suspension system during the transport to prevent damage to the washer. These bolts are removed prior to the first use of the washer and caps are usually placed in the holes left by the bolts. When removing the bolts, remove the lower ones first then the upper ones. Keep the bolts and spanner, if there's any, for future use.

WE recently purchased a front loading Frigidaire washer. I love it except we can't seem to get it level so it doesn't vibrate. It is on a concrete floor and thought the feet were self leveling but that's...


Make sure you have removed all the shipping bolts and straps. Front loaders come with bolts that go thru the back to keep the drum from moving during shipping. If you brought the washer home yourselves you may have left in these shipping bolts. Refer to you installation manual. It will give detailed instructions on how to set up your washer. If bolts are left in place the washer will vibrate and shake excessively and cause major damage if left in for too long.

Front loader shakes bad, is level, and on a concrete floor


You will have harmonic inbalance about 800 rpm on most front load machines, causing them to shake termporarily as it ramps up on the spin cycle. Be sure to check if the shipping bolts have been removed. This is the most common mistake most people make while installing front load machines. If you don't remove the shipping bolts, it will cause most machines to shake violently and can cause damage.

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!
