Question about Hoover AL130 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

High vibration front loader

My hoover AL 130 washing machine vibrates badly when loaded, like the load is off centre. It does not so this when run empty. I have checked the springs and dampers and they look fine. I also would have thought it would still have the problem when run empty if it was a spring or strut etc. I have read somewhere that there is a sensor that will stop the rotation and adjust for off centre loads. any thoghts??

    It could even be the back of a spider bar has come away and has turned, trouble is this means taking the drum out and splitting. If you turn the drum until a bar is at the bottom and try rocking the inner drum, rotate until you hear it

Have u checked the bearings to do this u open the door place your palm on the front of the face panel and place your fingers on the inside of the drum and grab the inner drum and move your fingers towards your palm if there is movement then the bearings are gone and need replacing if there isnt then it could be the springs that are placed under the top they could be broken if not then replace your damper legs they may look ok but they will be down on pressure m

GE Front Load washer shakes whenever any type of load is put in. GE service has been out at least 4 times and say that its fine..perfectly level, etc


All front loaders shake to some extent. It depends on the balance of the load. It is especially evident in the spin cycle due to the high speeds. Also these machines are best placed on a solid cement floor. They can shake an entire house if on the first or second floor and the floors are not well reinforced.

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the


Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.
