Washer rocks violently, how can I identify bad shock absorbers?

A washing machine with shock absorbers? Is this a front or top loader? Top loaders you pull the machine forward by grabbing the top of the back. This adjusts the self adjusters. Thanks

My maytag washer is shaking violently on the rinse cycle

I am currently having the same issue with my Maytag A482. Not sure if you have found a fix yet, or if you have replaced your washer. My washer runs fine until it nears the end of the cycle, when it begins to spin and shake violently, enough to loosen the leveling feet and rock back and forth. I pulled the front panel of the machine off (two screws near the base in the front, and two clips at the top) and ran a load through it. It ran fine until the end, when the machine started shaking violently. I did notice a few small pieces of roundish felt looking material sitting on the bottom, which after some research looks like it may be the damper pad. I found these online:
Damper pad 203956
Replacement Damper 203725 for MAYTAG Laundry Appliances A482

I am hoping this will resolve the issue, I will order them this afternoon and install them once they arrive. I really hate to replace such a good washer with a new high efficiency unit, which all seem to have terrible reviews after a few months/year of use.

My washer is rocking back and forth very violently during the spin cycle (medium) to where it knocks everything off when I put sometighing on top. I have called a repairman out 3 times and he says there's...

Check that the machine is level and that the leveling feet are not screwed out too far. If necessary, screw them back in and restart to level the machine. With a front loader it is more important to have the machine standing completely completely firm on all four its feet than to have it exactly 100% level. You must not be able to rock the machine by hand at all and the floor on which it is standing must be solid with no give in it at all.

Just bought the Bosche Axxis front loader. When the spin cycle kicks in, the machine wobbles/shakes/wanders VIOLENTLY from side to side. Is it the installation or the machine?

I bought the Bosch 8Kg washing machine on 8th Feb, I had the same problem.

Read installation instructions, you need to remove transport safety nuts from the back.

I replaced the base assembly and completely level the machine and it still is unbalanced at the 11 mi. mark.

Is your washer a front loader because if it is then one possible solution is by putting less close. I have a front loader and when I put 8 blue jeans along with some other close. The spin cycle is violent and by removing 4 jeans, the cycle spins better and it end up balancing its self. Usually jeans soak up a lot of water, so try to put in lee close and less heavy close.

If this does not help then you might have a problem with the damper shocks (leaking) or springs (broken) if it a front loader washer.

Our Maytag washer rocks violently during the spin cycle.It shakes the whole house and seems to be getting worse. We put shock absorber rubber mats under it but it just rocks off them.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you must have a broken balance spring/shock on your machine...

I suggest you contact a service company

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.

My washing machine spins violently and the ground

Possibly you still have the transport screws in. this causes havoc when load is in. or very unballanced load or possibly spring come loose . assuming you have a front loader. Definately one of those.

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.

When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.
