Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

DESIGN FLAW and in other news, this unit has a major balancing issue. Response from vendor: "Yeah, when it's on the second floor and on a pedestal it rocks." If 10 feet is a significant distance for gravity-related issues, GE China has problems.

Kenmore Whasher shakes on spin cycle


unfortunetly this is common , these new frontloads spin fast even with no pedestal these things move...
make sure the locking nuts for the legs on the pedestal are screwed securely up to frame on pedestal, also could be a floor issue depending on where it is, slooping or not solid floor.

Balancing the washer on the pedestal


Yes, ljharlow,

What is your Question?

You have a problem balancing the washer on the pedestal??
You must first balance the washer and then put it on the pedestal!
I take it you bought and picked up an installed your own machine.
The delivery men know to do the leveling foirsy and then raise them on to the pedestal
If you have two people you can have one person lift the front of the machine by tilting it back wards on the pedestal so the front goes up in the air a little and the second person turns the adjustable legs till it is level! If you laid the washer on its side ,front,or back at any time since you bought it then you threw the machine out of balance and YOU DO need service to correct this situation!!!!!!!
bless you Huuum

Front Load LG Washer and Dryer Pedestals


If the pedestals are properly installed they pretty much become part of the washer and dryer and if those are installed correctly you will have no more vibration then if the units are sitting on the floor. If possible get the washer as close to an outside wall as possible since the floor is stronger there.

Washer appears to be out of balance


Double check the screws holding the washer to the pedestal to make sure they are tight and make sure all the jam nuts on the leveling legs are tight. Loose jam nuts are the most common cause of this.

If they are tight, loosen the right front leg and screw it up until the weight is off the floor. Then run it back down until it contacts the floor. Put the washer in high spin and tighten it down to the floor until you get the spot where there is the least vibration. Tighten jam nut, and check it again in spin with a load of clothes. 

Post back and let me know how this works.
