Hi!

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

We just had a new top-load Maytag Washer delivered. When the man finished installing it, he started a wash cycle and left. When it got to the spin cycle there was a lot of vibration. It doesn't...


NO. Have you checked if he installed an anti vibration pads. This is because the high frequency vibrations caused by the spin cycle can cause annoying noise and very serious long term structural damage to you home.

Experiencing extreme vibration and noise with my LG WM2101H...sounds like a rocket is taking off everytime i wash something...it's on a pedestal, overflow pan and is located on the second floor...no...


This is actually pretty normal for newer LG front loaders. They've done a lot of work to isolate the vibration and noise from the spin cycle, but the higher RPM's have countered those improvements. Unless the manufacturer/technician can determine that something is actually wrong, you're probably going to need to install an anti-vibration pad under the washer pedistal to absorb most of the noise. It is very likely that the subfloor is actually amplifying the vibration into the "rocket" noise that you are hearing. Try installing Silent Feet anti-vibration pads or similar to prevent this amplification of the noise and vibration.

Vibration of the wash mashine


How old is the machine? Have transit bolts been removed? Older machine is possible bearing failure or spider breakage( a 1 in 10 wash with a temperature of 95 degrees celcius will extend life of a front loader!- an empty wash or towels or sheets at this temperature). A grinding noise can simply be a worn drive belt, rotating drum by hand and finding grinding and lateral movement equals bearing/spider failure. Also a simple case of Underlaoding the machine will cause unbalanced load and vibration.

Vibration during 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.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Washing machine stops in middle of spin cycle, have to pull control knob out over and over to complete cycle.


If the machine restarts immediately, vibration may be disabling the door closed switch. This switch is designed to stop the machine when the door opens, and if it becomes misaligned any large vibrations may cause it to sense that the door is open. This will not happen usually under the relatively mild vibrations from the wash cycle. Try running it while holding the door down. It can be adjusted but the top usually must be removed to do so.
