Violently shaking and noisy washing machine

My husband and I just purchased a 2.5 year old Whirlpool washing machine. It makes a very loud and unnatural noise during the rinse cycle and shakes violently. It seems to be filling up with water and washing properly, we just aren't sure what the noise and shaking are. We are afraid it's not going to last long. Could someone please help us out? Thanks!

    Hi,
    It's a top loader. Model number is LSQ9200PT1. We did balance it when we got it. The original owner told u it was noisy, but not that it shook. And it is VERY noisy.

I'm assuming you balanced this when you got it, right?

    well..then what you are experiencing is a vibration that would indicate that perhaps your motor/transmission/bearings are unhappy.

    all machines vibrate, yet it's clear that some of them are more inclined than others(especially those which double as test vehicles for seismic instruments)..just kidding.

My TAWS800JQ1 washing machine drum seems like it has shifted and is off balance


The bearings are likely shot. But it's possible the spanner nut that holds the basket in place is loose or damaged. Remove the agitator to check spanner nut. Changing bearings is a big job, but if you are handy with tools and good at keeping your cool you can do it yourself.

The washer shakes violently then the off balance sensor trips when a load is in the washer.


I had this washer at one point in time. was not very happy with it, even though i sold it to alot of my customers. usually if the machine is shaking violently it means one of a couple things. first make sure your washer is properly leveled. if it is make sure you washing the same types of clothes in the load, no mixed loads of towels with shirts. if your problem is not that then you possibly have a bad clutch. which will cause the tumbling wheels to spin during your spin cycle as well, its a costly fix so i would consider a new front loading maytag/whirpool if that is your problem. remember this machine was designed by maytag, since then they were purchased by whirlpool and everything is on a whirlpool platform now. if you do purchase a new washer and have the matching dryer to your neptune TL, it would recommended to replace the dryer as well, considering the capacity of these machines are smaller then most of the new high efficiency machines on the market today.

My washing machine makes a loud noise when it spin dries. what could be the problem? it washes well; the machine does not shake or vibrate during the spin drying; it just makes a loud sound; it never was...


Hello,
It sounds like the bearings are starting to go.The problem is as it is 6 years old the repair job could be expensive,unless you have an extended warranty.It still might be worth getting a quote off one of your local repair dealerships.
Hope this helps.

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle


There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

ON SPIN CYCLE MY FRONT LOAD WASHER SHAKES VIOLENTLY


I have a four year old Andi front loading machine, and just in the last week it has started to move violently during the spin cycle and move across the room.
The last time, the movement was so severe that the machine was cutting itself off and then trying to spin again.
I couldn't control the machine and I just had to turn it off at the wall.

Noisy spin cycle


several points. did you put in transit bolts for move and forget to remove them? is machine sitting square on all four legs? is it sitting on a suspended floor? if joist spacing is wide, then this can result in vibration.
