Is the wash load too heavy?

Try looking to see if one of the damper spings has become detached or stretched.

Is the drive belt running smoothly?

Has one of the drive pulleys become loose of mis shapen?

The bearing may also be faulty and need replacing.

Vibrates real bad in spin mode.


Check to see if the washer is level, and adjust the leveling legs if necessary. Always lock the legs in place after adjustment to keep them from getting loose as they do work themselves loose during heavy vibration conditions.
The following items could cause the vibration problem:
1. Clutch assembly
2. Vibration dampers that support the tub. Should one or more be faulty, always replace all four simultaneously.

Excessive shaking and vibration when wash cycle is running


Hello, Well if the machine is vibrating it is most likely because the feet on the bottom of the washer are not locked and are screwing themselves back up into the machine. If you have someone help you can slightly tip the washer up and adjust these feet by simply turning them to adjust them down or up. This can take a few adjustments to get the machine level. take a carpenters level and set it on the washer first from the front to back on one side of the washer and adjust the feet so it is level front to back. Then take the level and set it over the control panel to level it side to side(it will take a few times to get them all even and level). when the machine is level you will have to lock the feet by turning the nut that is on the leg up to the bottom of the washer and tighten them down to lock the legs so that they do not work themselves loose again. That should stop the vibration. Good luck and I hope that solves it!

LG front loaded washing machine vibrates during


If its on a pedistal then that will raise your center of gravity and cause the unit to be less sturdy during a spin. It could also be due to a weak floor. You may want to try a product called "shake away pads". The probably sell them at like home depot or lowes. They will run you about 40 bucks but they just go under the legs and help absorb some shock. Good luck _MJ_

How do I stop or reduce the front l washer from vibrating so much


Hi
The machine is not balanced on the floor well.... the 4 stands on which the machine rests have adjustable screws... You will need to fasten or loosen the nuts that will adjust the height of the legs on which the machine rests.... all the 4 legs need to be firmly on the floor .... If one is too high then the machine rocks on its side...

Our Kenmore 70 Series washer bangs so severely during the spin cycle that I'm afraid it's going to launch itself into space. I already used a level to make sure that the machine is sitting properly on the...


Open the lid and check to see of the inner tub is loose. Grap it on opposing sides. Lift on one side and press down on the other side. If the tub moves easily the tub nut located inside / under the agitator at the top of the tub is loose. Also another thing you can do is reset the rear auto adjusting legs by tipping the washer forward until the rear legs are at least 2 inches off the floor and drop it back in place. They will self adjust. Good luck and if none of the above work repost here.

My brandt washing machine(model wtc0633) vibrate seriously


Hi Steven. You maching is a top load type and it sounds like the leveling legs under you machine are no longer adjust properly. This can occur from moving the unit or just over time from normal use. You can verify this by pressing down individually (one at a time) on the 4 corners of the top of you unit. If it rocks when you press down or push on the the corners then your leveling legs are out of adjustment. Adjust the legs under the unit until it no longer moves when you press on the corners and see if this solves your problem. If you need more help later then reply to this post.

VIBRATION


It should have should leveling legs under it. Screw upwards all the legs. Means your washer is now at its lowest level. Shake the washer with both your hands. Adjust the leg where the shake is, upwards or downwards to stop the shake. When the shake is totally removed, lock the legs with the check nut above the leg; meaning there 2 nuts, one above the leg & one under. You most probably have to check out your corner of the machine, where the problem lies. It is important that you lock the nuts or the problem will recur.

Shaking during rinse


Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength

Spins off balance


Hello kel_lyn_eve,

Because your washing machine is so heavy, when it's not level, it can vibrate strongly during the spin cycle. If your washing machine is not perfectly level--with all four legs touching the floor--it can bang and rock back and forth, and even begin to "walk" across the room. This isn't good for the machine and may damage anything near the machine.

Your washing machine has adjustable, front leveling legs with a lock nut. You adjust the leg to the proper height, then tighten the lock nut up against the body of the machine to keep the leg from rotating.

Some machines have adjustable leveling legs in the rear also, and you can adjust them in the same way. Keep the machine as close to the floor as possible--the lower it is, the less likely it is to vibrate.

Most machines, however, have "self-adjusting" rear legs. You set these legs by tilting the entire machine forward onto its front legs (with the rear legs 3 to 4 inches off the floor) and then setting the machine back down. The legs should adjust automatically. If they don't, you may need to tilt the machine forward and rap on the rear legs with the handle of a hammer to loosen them--a procedure that's easier to accomplish with a helper.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you fix your problem.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!
