In spin cycle violent vibration


First, check to make sure you aren't loading the washer excessively. Many times it is an unbalanced load. Second, check to see if the washer is level. The feet are adjustable and allow you to level the washing machine. While checking the level, make sure the floor underneath is stable as well. Lastly, if these do not help, you may need to have the dampners checked (these are like shock absorbers and minimize the vibration of the drum).

My washer is brand new and it vibrates the entire house when it is on the spin cycle. It doesn't matter how much clothing or what spin cycle setting it is on. I've check to make sure that the unit is...


If it brand new I would call back the service man or store I bought it from..From what your saying..it either has a powerful motor or the drum is out of balance with out any cloths in it....Put it in spin mode with nothing in it...If you get vibrations its one of two things...Either the whole washer isn't leveled correctly or its a unbalanced washer drum...Call them back and tell them either they come out to check it or you want it replaced....Be firm...It'd your money

Shakes violently during spin cycle from back to


I had this problem with my front loader as well. It is probably the mounts or "level shocks" on the bottom of the unit under the tub. I have a Kenmore by Frigidaire and had to replace the "level shocks". I only paid about $43.00 and was not that hard to put on. Look under your machine and see if the shocks are connected to the tub. Check under the top panel also to see if that particular model has mounts up there too.

Clothes washer vibration during spin cycles


the vibration and noise is most likely from the drum bearings wearing out to test the bearings try this out,,,
open the door, hold the top of the drum and lift it up, if it has any free lift in it the bearings are going, now spin the drum by hand and you should here the rumble off the bearings

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle


There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Violent spin cycle on the Frigidare front-loading washer


I assume you bought it new, so on that basis, did you remove the transit packing materials inside the machine ?

Front loading washing machine normal design is for the drum assembly to be supported by two or more springs at the top, and two dampers at the bottom. This allows the drum to move in a controlled fashion and also minimises vibration, particularly during spinning.
When the machines are shipped from the factory, transit packaging is put inside the machine to ensure that any shocks to the machine during transit dont damage the springs or dampers. This must be removed before use otherwise you get pretty much the symptoms you describe.

The manual that cam with it will show you how to remove the transit packaging. In such a short time I suspect you wont have suffered any damage, but take the transit packaging out as soon as possible.

Hello.

These are usually shipped with a number of "shipping bolts" to lock the drum in position during transit. If they are not removed when it is installed, then the washer will behave exactly as you describe. Check the manual or look for a sticker on the back or the washer showing which bolts to remove,

Kenmore 22932 Top load washer has excessive vibration at end of spin cycle


IF THE FLOOR IS NOT ABSOLUTELY STABLE, IT WILL MAGNIFY A SMALL VIBRATION INTO A LARGE ONE. PUT SOMETHING ON THE DRYER IF IT SETS NEXT TO THE WASHER, AND TURN ON THE WASHER INTO SPIN. IF THE ITEM ON THE DRYER SHAKES, THE FLOOR IS MOVING.
IF THE WASHER IS ON CARPET, REMOVE THE CARPET OR CUT HOLES IN IT WHERE THE FEET ARE SO IT IS NOT SETTING ON THE CARPET. THE CARPET AND PAD WILL BE TOO SOFT FOR THE WASHER TO SET STABLE.
ALSO, PICK UP ON THE REAR OF THE WASHER TO RESET THE AUTO LEVELING REAR LEGS. YOU SHOULD HEAR THEM MOVE AND RESET WHEN YOU SET THE WASHER BACK DOWN.
