Stacking washer and dryer still vibrating and walking during spin cycle even though stacking kit is attached


Assuming that you've installed the stack kit according to instructions, you should check the following:
1. The dryer should be securely attached to the washer and not wiggle or move. The washer must always go on the bottom of the stack.
2. Washer should be level and have all four level legs making solid contact with the floor, no wobbling.
3. Make sure the drain hose is not pinched or restricted (or there is not debris in the drain pump) as a slow pump out will accentuate vibration problems.
4. Make certain you've removed all of the washer packing bolts before using the machine (see owners manual for description.)
5. The floor must be solid with no "springy" or "spongy" feel. No matter what you do to the laundry set it will vibrate on a less than solid floor. This occurs on upstairs installations or other wooden floors, especially in an older home. Sometime the floor can be braced to stiffen it. Also, vibration pads are sold that might help minimize the vibration. The walking is a symptom of vibration.

Experience shows that most problems of this sort result from incorrect installation and/or flooring issues, not the laundry. You should not attach it to the wall. It is possible the washer has a problem in which case a technician would need to check the unit. They can check the suspension and drive system for proper operation.

Frigidaire washer and dryer stackable set leaked oil on floor What do you think this could be?


The only thing that could have leaked oil out is the actual transmission of the unit. You are going to need to consult a professional technician for further repair and assistance. You might want to get a repair estimate and weigh your options of repairing versus purchasing a new Frigidaire unit with a manufacturer's warranty.

Washer and dryer stackable unit. water is leaking from somewhere onto the floor causing floor swelling. what could be the problem?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. You need to make sure your drain hose is not clogged up or your hoses are not damaged. You need to check the water pump also. It may be clogged or leaking from the pump area. Make sure the tub is not cracked or damaged, causing water to run out. Your best bet is starting the washer while you are viewing the hoses and the pump. You should be able to find the leak this way.

Water under stackable washer dryer


The front panel comes off and you will be able to trace the water source. These combo units spin immediatly and if the drain is slow the water will spin up over the edge of the tub during drain.

Maytag stack unit Model LSE7806ACE leaks


It is most likely the tub seal. Take the two phillips head screws out of the front cover located low on the cover lift forward and remove. Set the machine two low level and fill with water only no soap or clothes when unit starts agitating look at the bottom center of the clothes tub if water is leaking here then you will need to replace the tub seal and tub bearing assembly.

Stackable washer


If it wont spin or agitate, and you have a very slimey looking oil that looks like its been flung around the inside of the cabinet and all over the floor, then you have probably had a transmission go out on your unit. The problem is these transmissions are kinda expensive and take a little work to put in. Most dont replace due to cost, but they are available. Good luck!!!
