My kenmore elite washer has a very loud banging noise when it spins


U will need to remove the washer drum and check the washer drum stablizers and the washer drum bearing, do this to see what is wrong and how far u need to go in this repair.First open the door and spin the inner tub to make sure the tub spins freely, if not you have big problems.

If it does then remove the lower front panel. There are 3 screws along the very bottom of this panel that you can remove and then the panel will come off. Check to make sure the shocks are not cracked or broken under the tub. If not and the unit just recently started shaking a lot, then replace the shocks as they are probably worn out. If it's been shaking since the day you've gotten it and it just seems to have gotten a little worse, then purchase Shake Away pads which are specifically designed for front load washers to sit under the feet of the washer and reduce vibration dramatically.

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.

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load


The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

I have an atlantis serial # 16100596av the washer shakes and vibrates sometimes excessively on the rinse as well as the spin cycle. i hope this is an aesy solution!!


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

Kenmore washer stock no. 22642 shakes terribly during spin cycle


There is a suspension plate under the tub.
It also has 3 pads on it to support the tub.
There are springs attached to support the angle of the tub.
Check all these parts and repair or replace as necessary.
