Iv'e got a LG Top loader.WF-T755A. When it spins the drum shakes violently and move the washing machine around . It also makes a loud noise while doing it. What is wrong please?

The load is off balance. Instead of being evenly spread out along the drum, your laundry is bunched up on one side. Try smaller loads to allow the clothes to move more freely in the water.

My maytag washer shake a end of rinse cycle.

After the rinse cycle, the washer rapidly spins the tub to get as much water out of the clothes as it can. It works basically the same way as a salad spinner. If the weight of the clothes in the washer is not balanced, the washer will shake and maybe even jump around during the spin cycle. This is pretty normal. If all of your jeans end up on one side, and your t-shirts on the other, the jeans will hold more water, their side of the tub will be heavier, and the washer will shake a lot during the spin cycle.
If the washer is shaking too much, open it after the rinse cycle (wait for the tub to stop before reaching in) and spread the clothes out evenly in the tub. Try to balance the weight. Then close the lid/door and let it continue spinning.

Roper model #RTW4440VQ2 drum off balance. Don't think that the washer itself is not level, when we try to wiggle the whole machine it doesn't move. So it's not the floor. The drum is "loose". ...

Try tipping it up and look underneath there should be some springs that hook to the base plate and to the tub to help keep it in position . 3 shorter ones and 1 longer on the back. If they are unhooked or broken it could cause this problem. Hope this helps.

Maytag walking

Hello. I have a few ideas for you.
1. Tilt the machine forward so the back feet are 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) off the ground, then set it back down. The back feet usually are self-leveling--just raising and lowering the machine like this will cause the feet to re-level themselves.
2. Place your level perpendicular to the front of the machine and check to see if the washer is level in this direction. If it is off, readjust each front foot by the same number of turns until you reach level.
3. Go to the carpet store and buy a remnamt which is the size of the washing machine lengthxwidth. Place this under the machine with the four legs all resting on the carpet.

Washer shaking very bad

It's very likely your washer is out of balance. The load has shifted and is not evenly spread throughout the tub.
Stop the cycle, open the lid, move the items around so they are more evenly distributed and that should solve the problem.

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.

Admiral clothes washing machine AAV7000AW

Hello calmtouch,

You said,
When in spinning cycle, the barrel begins to move all over banging the washer across the floor. I don't even know what to look for.

sounds like the coupling connecting the tub to the transmission may be loose and throwing the wash tub out of rotation causing the banging and walking washer.
Bless You
