Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The washer dances around during the spin cycle. I have checked the legs for the washer to be level, but has not remedied the problem. I spoke with a local appliance repairman and he said that it was a flaw in the design of the tub support. He indicates that he does not have the capabilities to repair because it would take special tools and the washer has to be completely disassembled to access the defective part. Am I getting the correct information from this repairman. I have know this repairman for 20 yrs and trust his judgement. Any suggestions.

I have a Maytag Model # LA806-02, which dances across the flor when in the spin mode. Tighting the three centering spring has helped very little.


If your Maytag is dancing across the floor the most common problem is the leveling. If one or more of the feet are not level it ill wobble and walk around the floor. When you level the machine on the top both directions make sure the set nut is tightened so you will not have to retighten it again later.

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....

Maytag HAV4657EWW tub bangs during spin


This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

Washer moves during the spin cycle


Due to strong vibration during spinning definitely the machine will stop. All you have to do is to check your load if equally distributed from the tub. To eliminate the vibration and the movement of your washer you need to align the four legs of your washer using level tools. Just put the level on the top of the four sides (front side, left side, right side and backside) then make necessary adjustment if needed on the 4 leg of the washer. Also check the water level of the balancer and the mounting position from the top of the tub.

Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle


I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck

BACK LEG LEVELING ARM


The back legs are usually not adjustable. Adjust the front legs & lock them with the lock nuts, at the lowest level, that is the machine tilts towards the front. Adjust further if there is any shake when you try with your hands.

You could also check to see if any springs or shocks have become loose. Refer manual.
