Walking machine spin


Good Morning Jason, thank you for your inquiry!

If the washer is walking or vibrating, then more than likely it is not sitting solidly on the floor. Move washer until it sits solidly and the leveling legs may need adjusting. This issue may also occur if the shipping blocks and bolts weren't removed when the washer was installed, or you have an unbalance load.

Best regards!

Bad vibration when washer is spinning.


If the washer is vibrating, it's not sitting solidly on the floor. Move it until it sits solidly. If needed, adjust the leveling legs. It might also vibrate if the shipping blocks and bolts weren't removed when the washer was installed, or the wash load isn't distributed evenly.
If all this looks good, check the shock absorber to see if one has broken.

My Frigidaire Affinity dryer has started vibrating more and more during operation. Is the motor going bad or is there another problem?


Hi

Try the following to reduce the noise--

Washer is not resting firmly on floor. Move washer so it rests firmly on floor. Adjust leveling legs. NOTE: Some shaking of the washer is normal without moving across the floor.
• Shipping bolts and foam blocks have not been removed during installation. Check out the installation instructions for removing shipping bolts and foam blocks.
• Wash load unevenly distributed in drum. Stop washer and rearrange wash load.

Please post back for any further assistance.

Washer shakes bad


You probably have already checked this but since you do not say.........

Is the unit solid and level on the floor........with the leveling legs turned down as low as possible with the lock nuts tight.......?

If you put a glass of water on the dryer next to the washer, can you see the water vibrating when the washer is in spin? You may have weak floors.........Cement floor is the best floor, after that you need to check........

You do not say there is any noise, is the unit walking on the floor?

When new and installing there are shipping bolts and or straps to remove before using......

good luck,
enjoy the weather

WE recently purchased a front loading Frigidaire washer. I love it except we can't seem to get it level so it doesn't vibrate. It is on a concrete floor and thought the feet were self leveling but that's...


Make sure you have removed all the shipping bolts and straps. Front loaders come with bolts that go thru the back to keep the drum from moving during shipping. If you brought the washer home yourselves you may have left in these shipping bolts. Refer to you installation manual. It will give detailed instructions on how to set up your washer. If bolts are left in place the washer will vibrate and shake excessively and cause major damage if left in for too long.

Whirlpool duet sport..vibrates during spin and "walks"..on pedistal.sitting on tile


I just bought this washer and had two problems with it. 1 the vibration at medium spins and 2. a squeeking spring (every time the drum rotates a little squeek, but when spinning the squeek sounds constant.

What I discover in solving both my problems with the same solution. I had to ensure all 4 feet well on the ground and that the top of the washer was perfectly level. At one time I was out only about 2 mm on one side, but the bubble was slightly to one side on the level but still in between the level's markers. I tested with a load, and both problems were still there. Turn feet 1/2 turn on the side needing adjusting. Ran another load and you guessed it, no squeak, no vibration, spinning was quiet, I had to go over to check to see if the machine was going through the cycles. I couldn't believe that a few millimeters could make such a difference.

Now I am pleased with the performance, not to mention how clean the clothes are and the savings on water and drying.
