Push down on each corner, one at a time, when you push on a corner and the dancing stops, that's the corner that needs balance. adjust the foot.

Have had washing machine almost a year, was working perfectly, now wants to bang and clang on spin cycle, machine is level, is there any internal adjustments that can be made


There is a concrete block which sits inside machine.check to see if the springs that hold it in place have not broken, check penny trap for blockages and don't overload machine.uneven spinning is usually down to machine spin at high speed when water isn't draining off clothes hence the weight is more uneven and causes the drum to hit against internal structure.

I am unable to find a user manual for your model of washing machine. If it is a front loader then most likely the if you are not overloading the machine the following needs to be checked
1. level screws at base of machine are level with floor. Push the machine down from one side and see it lifts from other side. This needs to be correced.
2. slightly reduce the spin speed and see if it makes a difference
3. the counterweight on the drum may have come loose. This will mean opening the top cover and checking if the bolts holding the counter weight (block of concrete) are set properly.
4. Also check if the motor belt is not worn and is slipping.

Machine dances around room on spin. Floor is level and concrete


Is it making a loud thump? If so, it may be the basket drive. If not, the suspension to the washer may be damaged.

How do i better support my washing machine to make the floor sturdy


Every washing machine has crew type legs on each corner, if it teaters from corner to corner it is not properly leveled. you need to adjust the legs up and down until the machine is level and does not teater from corner to corner, like rock solid..when you put in a load of lawndry that is lop sided, the machine has a tendency to dance around the floor during the spin cycle, to stop this open the lid and re-adjust the lawndry evenly then close the lid and it should quit dancing around the floor.

Now if your floor is too weak, you need to get under the house and put in somemore beams to support the weight of the machine....

Good luck....

The machine goes crazy when it's on the extended spin (fast spin). If I set it to "gentle spin, would it disengage the fast spin? Whirlpool didn't know the answer!


Even with a good level machine these are very heavy units containing 3 concrete weights. The floor is a direct contributor to vibration and yes it;s worse on the Ex spin with a higher spin speed. If it's on a wood floor even in a new home that can cause this issue. One way to make sure the machine is ok is to put it on a concrete floor, level it and hit the high speed spin with a wet load. Not a easy thing to do but one way to confirm it.

Even a normal spin is enough spin speed to extract enough water. Stick with that!

Hi, Have you heard of problems with the new washing machines that spin so hard they damage floors?


I have not heard of the machine damaging floors. the new front loading machines do spin at a high rate of speed. It is so fast that if it is not on a solid floor it will shake the floor. I have been in homes that have a front loarder on the second floor and it literally shakes the whole house. This is why this machine should be only on concrete floors.

check that the machine ramps up to spin speed reasonably and distributes the clothes- ie doesn't spring straight up to spin speed. if this is ok then the fault may well be the shock absorbers located at the bottom of the machine and going from base to tub. check also that the counterweights are intact

Washing Machine Dance


Cars, does the basket lean to one side? There might be a couple of issues. The coupler that seats between the motor and trans could be wollowed out causing vibration. Another is that one of the balance springs came off or broke. I'm going to attach a photo of the springs so you can see what this looks like. You can remove the whole cabinet to check things out or tip the washer back and take a look.
