Washer jumps and vibrates and makes extreme noise


Is this a new machine that you purchased and installed yourself? Or is this a machine that has worked properly and is now displaying this problem? If new, it sounds as though you may have not removed the shipping bolts that secure the drum. This would prevent the drum's suspension system from being able to absorb vibration during the spin cycle and cause the vibration to transmit to the machine's outer shell. If the machine is older, then the drum suspension system itself may need repairs.

My washer will fill with water and we have power at the outlet but it will not agitate or spin...Suggestions?


It could be the motor if you do not hear or feel any type of hum or vibration during the time when it should be Agitating or spinning. If you do hear or feel a hum or vibration then it is most likely the belt has either broken or fell off, another posability is the spring attached to the belt tensioner has broken. Most all of these problems are easily fixed but usually require ordering the needed part.

The washer vibrates in the wash and spin cycle .


Try checking for the shipping screws, did you remove them? They are there to prevent the drum moving during transport but if left in the whole machine will try to jump about.

Jumps around really bad even on the "low spin" cycle Samsung front loading brand new



Hi,

First check that the "shipping" bolts have been removed...


When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

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

Washing machine has a seizure during the spin cycle.


Try leveling the washer so that it is about half a bubble biased towards the rear. This usually helps front loading washers balance properly even if the installation instructions say that it should be perfectly level. This can also aid draining problems.
Also, some newer front loading washing machines are simply prone to dramatic vibration even when they is "anti-vibration" or "vibration reduction" systems. You can never go wrong installing an anti-vibration pad under the washer. Good Vibrations Inc, Kellett Enterprises and The Vibration Solution all have good products. The Vibration Solution seems to have figured out the best solution and offers excellent support and return policies.

If all else fails call the retailer and ask for an exchange.

Whirlpool washing machine


Welcome hendrik,
You said, jumping around during spin cycle


How old is your GHW9150 washer?

Usually it is overload or load unbalanced due to uneven load.You must stop the machine and re-distribute the load and or weight!

Here are some Whirlpool reasons for you.
But if nothing helps you may have a mechanical problem to be serviced!


Try these ideas first!

Is the load balanced?

A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.
Washer makes noise or vibrates
Is the washer level?
The washer must be level. The four feet should be properly
installed, and the nuts should be tightened against the
washer cabinet.
As water is drained from the washer, you may hear air being
pulled through the pump. This happens during the end of
draining. It is normal.
Are you washing items with metal snaps, buckles or zippers?
You may hear metal items touching the washer drum. This is
normal.
Is washer installed on a sturdy and solid floor?
Refer to the “Installation Instructions” for flooring
requirements. Noise and vibration may be reduced by placing
a piece of ¾" (19.1 mm) plywood underneath your washer.
The plywood may extend underneath both washer and dryer
to keep them at equal heights.
Let me know If you have any questions and what happens!!!
Huuum

Vibration


Is the machine level. The feet should be tightened and the nuts should be tightened against the cabinet. Tilt the machine back and check the shock absorbers. One of the shockies could have jumped out of the guides.
