    Front load washers will shake if the load is not balanced. The more clothes the better.

    Small loads do not work in a front load washer.

Make sure the lags are solid to the floor. Any bit of difference will be exagerate when the washer spins. put a piece of paper under each of the front legs. While the washer is spinning try and pull the paper out. If you can pull the paper out with no problem, that leg needs adjusted to the floor more. If Ican help further, please let me know

    You can remove the front lower panel and see if there are any of the shock supports broke. there should be three screws holding the panel on. Get me the model # and I can be sure.

    I,m sorry but, this sounds like you might need a repairman so they can see exactly what is going on. It might have a tub out of place.

    What I suggested are the most common solutions. Without seeing it, I am not sure what else it could be.

During spindrying the WFT9230TP shakes violently although the feet are all pressing tightly against the floor.


The clothes must be balanced inside the drum in order to stop the violent shaking. Unlike a front loader, the top loaders must be balanced before starting the load.

If you need more assistance, let me know.

My Speed Queen washer shakes and walks during the spin cycle. I have leveled the machine and ajusted the amount of clothes in subsequent loads and it still shakes. How do I solve this? Thank you!


Did you remove the shipping bolts from the back of the washer? They are located on the back, usually very clearly marked "REMOVE" and have a red or yellow plastic washer/bushing. This is a fairly common problem with front load washers, from what I understand.

They're big suckers, and they keep the drum suspension from absorbing any vibration (so the drum doesn't slam around during shipping). Good luck!

P.O.S. Whirpool Calypso Washer and Dryer!


:) Hey... The absolute best machine on the market are the ones from SPEED QUEEN. THey wash clothes dependably, are direct dirve, and spin out the water better than any other on the market. THe speed queen machines pump and spin at the same time. THe other brands (including newer maytag-made by whirlpool) don't do this anymore, for they pump the water out, let the clotes go to the bottom of the tub, then attempt to spin causing them to wobble shake and shimmy as they get off balance. Speed Queen, on the other hand spins and pumps at the same time. THis means the clothes are spun out to the sides of the tub from the to to the bottom. MOre water is spun out so less drying time is required. Water is cheap but gas and electricity is expensive. So, if you are going to save one.. i suggest the shorter drying time to be the winner! THe old maytag machines that lasted people 30+ years before they quit had this technology.... Speed Queen still has it! THe warranty on speed queen machines includes 3 years without buying extended warranty.. all others make you purchace this.. SOme of them don't even come with a year! SHAME On you! Find a speed queen dealer and at least go look .. :)

GE Front Load washer shakes whenever any type of load is put in. GE service has been out at least 4 times and say that its fine..perfectly level, etc


All front loaders shake to some extent. It depends on the balance of the load. It is especially evident in the spin cycle due to the high speeds. Also these machines are best placed on a solid cement floor. They can shake an entire house if on the first or second floor and the floors are not well reinforced.

Too many clothes in the load , reduce by 25%

Switch to an old fashioned soap powder that has more agents in it to help it dissolve

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
