Front loading machine abnormal strong vibration on the spin cycle

Kenmore Elite front loading machine vibrates and shakes on the high spin cycle. This happened just few months ago. Never had a problem before. Technician said that outer tub with bearing is good but left without finding a problem but confirmed that the vibration is abnormal. What could be a problem?

Check that the feet are level to the floor as this may cause the vibration. Also set the machine to wool mode this then knows what material you are putting in the machine then should cycle to that material.

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the


Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

Washer drum shakes excessively during fast spin


y shaped piece that contains the spindle that attatches to the basket and allows it to spin is corroded and cracking. you can't buy just the spindle bracket, you must buy the basket too. you'll be buying the front part of the drum too, if you wait to long.

When that happens it is usually because of a drum bearing problem, have it replaced before this damages more parts.

Moved a Kenmore Elite and when we put it back in place it vibrates loudly. We tried leveling it and that has not worked. Any ideas?

Front loader vibrates and moves


You shd check the front legs - they shd be a maximum screwed up, that is the machine shd be tilting forwards. Then you adjust acccording to your floor level. The machine should not shake a bit when off, & you try to shake it with both your hands.

A little vibration is normal when the spin starts. Don't forget to rate me nice............
