    When you take a level to it, the washer is level. I have taken the feet all they down and it is still level. When it starts to spin, it will vibrate all over the place. Help

    we have the frigidaire front loader 2940, bought it from sears-ours did not vibrate or shake until we put it on a pedistal( a kenmore )that sears said that would match the front loader. now it shakes only when the spin cycle starts up and when it slows down. i called frigidaire and they said that the pedistel may fit the washer, however it will shake. their pedistal is built so that there is no shaking. we had an appliance service man come out and he checked and thought that everything was balanced. he didn't know what the problem was. we had been the service man before so he didn't charge us. I'm considering returning the sears pedistal and getting the frigidaire one. any thoughts.

The front 2 legs should be screwed in completely, and locked with the check nut. (the check nut is at the upper end of the bolt, and is a loose nut) This means the machine is lowest in the front. If you find any shake (try with both your hands) adjust accordingly, & lock with the inner check nut. Normally the machine adjusts itself if the weight is un-balanced; but it cannot do anything if the legs are uneven.

There could be some spring or shock-absorber come loose inside the machine. Plug off the wall, remove panel behind & check. If you could remove the top to check fine. Also find out the actual capacity of the machine - look user's manual (a book which is seldom read), it would be good to actually weigh your dry laundry to have an idea. Would be nice if you rate me pl. Good luck.

Maytag washing machine walks across floor during spin cycle


Did you set the back feet before leveling? On most units to set and lock the back feet you need to pull the top towards you so that the back is raised off the floor, then set it down again, this will release the feet and lock then down. The you level the two front feet. After this is done you must make sure your load is balanced. Distribute the items as evenly as you can in the tub. Once it gets to the spin cycle if its walking or shaking a lot, stop it and redistribute the items more evenly in the tub. Also try not to overload the unit or combining many heavy items with few light ones. If this is a new machine, did you remove the shipping locks from the back before using it? They have plastic strips attached to them, make sure they have all been removed, as well as any shipping bolts.

Balance, washer shakes and walks across floor


Have you checked to make sure the supports are OK? Is your washer making loud noises during spinning? If so, the basket drive may be broke.

Spins out of balance even emty

This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

Walks during spin cycle


Is this a brand new machine?

If it is then the answer is simply that you have not removed the transportation bolts/brackets that secure the drum in transit. Look at the manual - it will tell you how to do this.

If it's not a new machine then post here again and i will try to help further.

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance


Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

Washer tub goes off balance every time and washer walks!


there may be a possibility here of the centre hub being worn or the liner tub bearing being worn due to the age of the machine.. here is a list and diagrams of the parts you may need and can get from here:-
http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=mat13mn&searchTerm=img_CW17-6&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=Maytag

try to check for slackness when the tub is empty causing a rocking/slapping motion whilst empty. if the tub is used regularly and to its maximum capacity then the likeliehood is these bearings/hubs may need to be replaced.. the "walking" across the floor will be accented by the amount of items plus water in the tub. and if the tub is off balance,then this will be more highlighted when also full of water and items... if you feel this is over the top,then try to lighten the load that is in the tub at any given time. this will determine weather the bearing has indeed worn .the lighter the load,the less "walking the machine should do in cycle.. the only time walking would be unchanged is during the spin cycle,when the speed is of a constant one and it will vibrate at the same rate. placing it on a rubber mat is not a solution but just something that will make you hopefully think it is solved
and you may as well just bolt the machine to the floor and hope for the best

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
