    It may be level. if you have a weak floor your problem will not go away. what i have done before is ,with a load in it and it on spin cycle, i lay on the floor --find the leg that is jumping and unscrew it until it is tight to the floor. that works about 90% of the time. please leave me some feed back so i know how im doing. Thanks Ron

Also, make sure that you removed the shipping bolts from the back of the machine. Many people forget to remove these when first set up. And finally, if you're certain that the machine is level, with all four feet firmly planted, then consider dampening the sides of the machine with foam. It's a very simple fix, but effective for those "tuning fork" vibrating machines. See this link.

Why does it vibrate excessively, even empty?


It's probably 'out of balance'

Many machines have adjustable feet to take up any uneveness on the floor. If one or more of the feet are out of adjustment it allows the machine to 'rock' .. causing the vibration.

You want your machine to be as level as possible. Try putting a bit of cardboard underneath one or more of the feet to identify which foot needs adjusting

VIBRATION DURING RINSE CYCLE. NOISY


The 2 main causes for excessive vibration during rinse or spinout cycles are:
  • Machine is out of balance....The adjustable feet can correct this or over time, it's possible the machine shifted slightly and is no longer level
  • A worn belt whereby the tub wobbles more than it rotates; check for a worn belt.

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!

My Bosh washing machine has excessive vibration according the the level i put on the top of the washer it is level, but still seems to walk accross the floor on the final spin cycle.


it may be level but if the feet are not adjusted to be tight to the floor this will cause it to walk so try adjusting the feet then lock the locking nut I am sure you will find 2 that are not adjusted tight enough.

Excessive drum vibration


Yes, look into trading in the Kenmore for one of only two manufacturers that employ a dynamic balance system built into the washer drum. Samsung and LG both use this dynamic balance system that balances the load while it is in motion. They also use a vibration sensing system to modify the time and speed of the spin cycles to minimize any vibration that might still be present. LG has this available on only their upper level models while Samsung's VRT is available on most all models. I believe that both of these manufacturer's are available from Sears.

Excessive vibration on spin cycle.


Front loaders are prone to vibration problems. Don't want to go into the technical details of why, but it's important that they're placed on very solid surface (preferably concrete or tile), and checked that their feet have been adjusted so that the machine is level. Unfortunately, most people don't have a concrete pad for their washer. One simple option to consider is to provide dampening of the vibrations. This can be done very simply as this one fellow demonstrates. The main thing to keep in mind with this solution is that it is merely trying to dampen the vibrations. Don't be too forceful in your own solution (think lightly touching the top of a vibrating tuning fork with your finger to stop the tone).

Excessive vibration during spin cycle


Chck to see that all (6) suspension springs are still attached. Check the plastic snubber ring below the mechanism and above the base plate for cracks or contamination.

Vibration


just because the level shows it is doesn't mean it really is. check the pedestal first. make sure it is level and all legs are tight and there is no wiggle. next do the same for the machine once it is put back on the base.
