Ftf530es knocks during spin cycle


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES, is having trouble with the drum rocking back and forth, from front to back. I suggest making sure that your washer is level. I would check from front to back, side to side, as well as from corner to corner. If you have leveled your appliance and are still noticing the drum rocking from front to back I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

When the spin cycle begins the washer vibirates and moves on the floor. After the spin cycle reaches the maxium speed it stops. The springs are fine, but what else could be wrong?


The machine is probably not leveled properly. To level the machine, partly fill it with water. Make sure that the drum is standing in the middle of the machine and then adjust the machine until the water is at the same level all around at the nearest set of holes to the water. Check that the drum is still in the center of the outer drum. Make sure that the adjusting feet are all firmly on the floor and that you cannot rock the machine at all by hand. A top loader must be 100% level or it will shake.

First time I ran the electrolux washer, it bounced around during the spin cycle and gashed a hole in my wall. We can't run it without it bouncing violently. When it is not running, all four corners are...


Sounds like it could be a few things. the tub sits on shocks attached to the bottom of the machine. If one of those are broken when it goes into high speed spin ght thing will bounce around violently. Also the tub hands on springs from the top. Its uncommon but one of those could have broken or let go. The cabinet will not move but the internal components can be destroyed by it.

Excessive vibrating and banging in the spin cycle with some washes. The unit is only 1 month old. Any advice?


You have a improper installation. The machine has to be perfectly level side to side and frotnt to back. After leveling, check the feet on the bottom and see if one is bouncing on spin with a load. Adjust the bouncing foot down until machine stops bouncing.

Rocks and bounces during spin cycles


You don't state what type and model of washer you have but following is the Whirlpool service manual for top load direct drive washers.

Check the sections on the base and suspension springs and pads.

If one or more of these is not connected, or the pads are damaged, the washer will vibrate during the spin mode.

Kenmore 80 series will agitate but not spin or let water out.


Hi, I know washer had a party, he just need a dancing partner, joking, that's a common problem, when machine is not properly level, you should used spirit level, to level machine, after leveling machine, place both hands on machine, and try to rock it from left to right, forward and backward, and it should not have any play, if there's play adjust legs to compensate, water has to be pumped out first before machine spins, rhere's something wrong with water pump, maybe some fabric stuck in pump impeller, or maybe wires disconnected from water pump, remove back of machine and check connection to water pump, check for kink hoses, visual check, if wire were remove, connect to water pump, you're smart. good luck.

On the spin cycle my miele walks acrossed the floor


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine
