Question about Washing Machines
Arrived today, unpacked, removed transit rods , made sure that the machine is sitting level (used spirit level) and ran first water only cycle. So far so good. Put in normal load of clothes and the machine vibrating very badly on spin cycle. Its sat on a chipboard floor with plywood sheeting then lino floor covering. Our previous machine ran for 15 years without vibration problems on this same spot on the floor. Have I missed something? Is there anything that I can do to resolve this vibration.
Any advic would be much appreciated.
If it is a top loader machine , use the spirit level across the top of the agitator not across the lid as many lids are now sloping a bit
make sure that all of the transit packing and bolts have been removed as per the user manual in the installation section
still vibrating , get a technician out for a warranty inspection

Another suggestion, I don't know anything about snubbers and all that. But I had a few machine want to walk across the floor. Several repairmen and other people had told me to buy a peice of plywood, roughly 27"x27" and put it under the machine. It worked for me. I guess the idea is that the subfloor in your new house flexes cuasing the machine lift and walk. I have heard of brand new machines doing this in houses with certain floors. There is an antiwalk kit that is sold too

Chck to see that all (6) suspension springs are still attached. Check the plastic snubber ring below the mechanism and above the base plate for cracks or contamination.

What's the exact model of your washing machine? I'll need this to get you exact part numbers.
If you're looking for a quick and cheap fix that works. Try installing a rubber anti-vibration pad under the washer. I've had the best luck with a pad called Silent Feet. They are pretty hard to find in stores but Amazon.com carries the full line of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads. They will provide you with the best results short of replacing the full shock isolation assembly in the washer. And they cost a lot less.
