Yes of course it may simply be a balnce problem, the legs need to be re adjusted. I use a level to check the balance. adjusting each leg accordingly, another thing it might be is that the counter weights balance rods are needing replacing or re greasing with lithium bases greased

    Thanks, I'll check the level first. I'm suspecting that it has to with more than simple level. Counter weight balance rods...didn't think of that. Not sure what you mean by "re greasing with lithium bases greased" Thanks for the reply

    WELL SOME COUNTER WEIGHT RODS DEPENDING ON THE TYPE U HAVE CAN BE REGREASED THE LONG METAL ROD HAS A TUBE THAT MOVES UP AND DOWN WITH A WASHER TYPE COVER, U SIMPLY PUT MORE GREASE IN THEM THEN CLOSE IT BACK UP

How do I fix a front load washer that shakes violently on the last spin cycle?


CLOTHES UNBALANCED? OR COUNTER BALANCE SUPPORTS BROKEN, AND NEED REPLACMENT? WASHERS have many different weight balancers but sounds like u need to take body off and have look at the counter weights set up while running machine, just jumper the door switch to keep a closed line. and then agin sometimes its as simple as making sure ur washer is leveled on ur floor, check ur leg adjusters as they do get funny at times..

Stackable washer and dryer. The dry shakes when the washer is on spin cycle.


The washer spins real fast and can shake like he**. The load can also be unbalanced.

Washer has worked great for almost a year but now all the loads seem to be unbalanced. It doesn't matter if they are large, small or on any particular cycle, they all sound unbalanced and shake my house...


The motion dampers that control the outer tub's movement within the cabinet may be loose or damaged. Lift up on the inner drum when the machine is off to see if the drum moves with a 'clunking' sound which would indicate a bad drum shaft bearing (not a cheap fix). If it seems ok, remove the top and back panels to check the action of the dampers when the outer drum is shaken. Hope this helps!

Shaking


Most common cause for the machine to shake during the spin cycle is due to a unbalanced load. A load of a couple of small bulky items or a small load in general may not be able to distribute the weight properly causing the machine to be unbalanced. It is best to wash full loads whenever possible. We have a brand new front loader as well, our first load about took the walls down...We just tossed a couple things in to see how it worked....thats how I learned to wash full loads. Now with the knowledge of why it shook so bad, we have had no more problems. Hope this helps

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating
