Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Spin Terrirble wobble on the spin cycle. I've checked for levelness(sp?) and it is off slightly but it wasn't doing this before today so I don't believe that is the problem. Even if I hold the machine it continues. I did try to level the machine but the rear feet seem to be connected to some sort of self leveling bar and I could not secure a position.

Re: spin

Does this happen with every load? I've had this happen occasionally but it was caused by one or two heavier when wet pieces of clothing that caused the tub to get off center and it would wobble out of control. By just rearranging the wet clothes to balance the tub it stopped wobbling. But only after making sure that the heaviest objects were on opposite sides if the tub.

My machine is extremely loud when it spins. what do I need to do

I would guess you need to level it. Most washers and dryers have some sort of self leveling in their feet but some do not. Attempt to lift the rear of the machine up two to four inches and then set it back down. Check to see if it wobbles. If is still wobbles you may need to adjust the foot using an open ended wrench.

Perfect level sounds very strange

Check the leveling feet on your machine. With the machine turned off, and with a small carpenter's level, check to make sure the machine is level front to back and side to side. Then give the machine a shake in each direction to make sure that the feet (which are adjustable). If the machine wobbles-even a little bit- adjust the feet until all 4 feet are in contact with the floor and the machine fails to wobble when pushed.

Excessive shaking during spin final cycle

check to see if the floor is solid and not soft, thin or flexible. are the leveling legs tight? make sure the locking nut is tight and that the leg does not wobble.

Washer leaks during spin cycle

If the machine is leaking then the bolt on the drum need to be tightened. you can acces them by removing the top or rear cover of the machine. If the machine is wobbling it need to be leveled or a shock absorber or spring connected to the drum has come loose or needs to be replaced

Washing machine drum is very wobbly

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

Brand new front load kenmore wobbles and moves across floor

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
