    Mine shakes the entire house as well on the spin cycle. PLEASE notify me if you come up with a solution. Another post said something about tightening the large bolt at the back of the washer after you take off the outer casing?

Ok here can be some problems of all different issues.
Did you take out the transport bolts? they are located in the back and if left in the will prevent the drum from using the dampeners. Please check this because it will wreck the machine.
If these are out most likely one of the dampeners is lose. open machine and check all four of them.
Please come back if this did not work

Washer was making a very loud shaking sound in the spin cycle, the noise stopped the spinning stopped and I smelled burning.washer will not spin


I had a shakey washer that I bought open box from "circuit city", it was a return.

I was to lazy to learn why the washer would shake and a technician told me to manually balance the wash load in the drum.

Later, I got into the washer and lubed up the rotating shafts and rockers. The washer lost all its shakes with the mechanics properly lubed. From the factory the mechanics were never properly lubed.

Tight mechanics that are supposed balance the spin cycle by moving could be part of what is getting warm. The belt spinning the washer also takes a beating when the drum shakes.

Get a good discount on your washer first, and then lube the mechanics. Everything about the washer is meant to work. If the mechanics are too tight you'll have shaking.

My Kenmore Elite Front Loading Washer is shaking very bad when it's on the spin cycle. When i level it, it's ok for a while but slowly goes back to skaking again. Any Ideas?


there are struts on the bottom of the drum and springs on top. may try replacing these but I think if you level it well and make sure the feet are tightened down well it should stay quiet. it the feet are not tightened well they will vibrate and come out of adjustment

Spin cycle problem


I had the same problem you need to pull out your washer and observe which leg is uneven this should be the source of your shaking and if you use the proper tools you can solve this.

Washer shaking


first make sure the shipping bolts were removed from the machine, then make sure it is level, then if it still shakes, take your fist and hit it on your head... jk, if you have it on a wood floor, or your floor isnt 100% sturdy, you cant do anything about it besides using anti vibration pads. they wont do that much tho.

Washer will not spin/drain properly.


a large load will sometimes get out of the top of the tub and cause the lid switch mounts to break and then the unit wont spin or drain. just look under the top and if you see the lid switch just hanging or not in the right place then replace the lid switch.
