    The floor is a plywood wood floor covered with vinyl tile. Is it possible the floor has become warped? It has been set at this location for about 7 months as we bought this washer in August 07. I have also pulled it out far enough from it usual location in an attempt to see if the floor was the cause and it made no difference.

    i have the same problem on concrete floor in my basement. The machine is perfectly horizontal and it slowly starts to get out util it shakes, wobles and moves from its initial position

    Well, I have learned once again: If nothing helps read the Installation Instructions! :)



    It turns out that when I pulled the yellow plastic piece which was holding the power cord and retuned it back, I forgot to completely pull out the metal PIN (approx. 6-7 inches long) that was attached to the plastic. This yellow plastic needs to be completely removed together with a metal PIN attached to it. You will need to pull it quite hard to do so.



    The metal PIN is there just to keep together machine parts during the transportation and is not needed for regular machine use.



    Once I removed the PIN and yellow plastic piece, the machine works flawlessly, doesn’t shake at all and it is very quiet.

Kenmore 700 series top load washer problem


This machine has self adjusting legs in the rear. Tilt the machine forward and see if you can hear the spring loaded legs adjust in the back if not they may need some lubrication and some help. tap on legs with hammer gently and they will usually release. Front legs have screw adjustments and very important locking nut which 99 out of 100 installers wont use. Thank you

Excessive vibration in spin cycle


Be sure the washer is on a solid surface, no plywood or skid platforms. Then be sure to lock in the front levelling legs.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
