Re: washer shakes vigorously

The front 2 legs should be screwed in completely, and locked with the check nut. This means the machine is lowest in the front. If you find any shake (try with both your hands) adjust accordingly. Normally the machine adjusts itself if the weight is un-balanced; but it cannot do anything if the legs are uneven.

For Flinsky:
There could be some spring or shock-absorber come loose inside the machine. Plug off the wall, remove panel behind & check. If you could remove the top to check fine.

If your transport bolts are removed and if the springs or shocks are in good order, make sure the machine is not standing on a tiled floor. No matter what, it will bounce all over the floor then. Place machine on a concrete floor and retry.

During the spin cycle if your cloths are too heavy on one side you will get this problem, reposition the cloths and it should cure the problem, at least thats what I do when my machine gets to shaking.

Shook Violently first time on spin cycle

Make sure the washer is leveled properly and all four feet are resting on the floor. If it is level, try running one cysle without any clothes in it to see it is spins without that violent shaking.. you may have also had an out of balance load.. Hope that helps!
