Rocks while in spin cycle


Hi, I believe the cause of your washing machine's "rocking" problem is the result of the machine not being properly balanced (on all four legs). Let me explain. On the bottom of your washer and dryer, are four "adjustable" legs. These legs screw up or screw down. If you adjust these four legs so that the washer is perfectly square with your floor, your rocking problem will go away. This should do the trick. Good Luck!

My machine was banging loud in te spin cycle and now it fills with water but won't spin or agitate the motor is not coming on


Hello,the machine is not balanced on the floor well.... the 4 stands on which the machine rests have adjustable screws... You will need to fasten or loosen the nuts that will adjust the height of the legs on which the machine rests.... all the 4 legs need to be firmly on the floor .... If one is too high then the machine rocks on its side...

If NO.. only sometimes...
You are overloading the machine with heavy clothes... distribute your wash clothes by weight...

Thanks

Excesive Shaking during spin cycle


Your washer has self adjusting rear legs . Tilt the machine foreward and look at the back legs . If one is stuck in , use a screwdrive and pry it out till both legs are in the out position . Set washer back down slowly and the rear legs will automatically adjust .

The machine is brand new and shakes violently when on spin cycle


Hi. Most likely the leving legs are not adjusted properly. You can check this by pushing on the sides for you uint from all four corners indivisually. It the unit teeters on 2 legs then the legs are improperly adjusted. The easiest way to adjust them is to push on the cormer that causes any movement and rotate the adjusting leg downward. If the unit is already high then lower the longer legs intil the unit sops moving when you press on the TOP corners of the unit. Good luck. I think you can have this one solved easily.

Model MAH9700 - Washer travels across floor in the spin cycle


I suppose that the repairmen would know than I would, but I do know that any washing machine that is not level will walk and vibrate and really shutter on the spin cycle. I would try to level (using a level on the top part of the machine that is flat, if there is such a portion) the machine so that all four feet (pads) are secure with their locking nuts up against the body so that they can't turn and cause the machine to go out of level.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Spin cycle


Sounds like the counter balance is off on the washer. If you tilt the washer back underneath by the motor should be a large brick like block. Make sure it is fastened to the frame tight and if it is check to see if all the level adjustments on the legs are adjusted properlly to keep it from moving ,banging around when its spins in the spin cycle.

Many times there are tentions springs under the washer too to adjust the weight make sure one has not come loose.

Hope this helps

Spins off balance


Hello kel_lyn_eve,

Because your washing machine is so heavy, when it's not level, it can vibrate strongly during the spin cycle. If your washing machine is not perfectly level--with all four legs touching the floor--it can bang and rock back and forth, and even begin to "walk" across the room. This isn't good for the machine and may damage anything near the machine.

Your washing machine has adjustable, front leveling legs with a lock nut. You adjust the leg to the proper height, then tighten the lock nut up against the body of the machine to keep the leg from rotating.

Some machines have adjustable leveling legs in the rear also, and you can adjust them in the same way. Keep the machine as close to the floor as possible--the lower it is, the less likely it is to vibrate.

Most machines, however, have "self-adjusting" rear legs. You set these legs by tilting the entire machine forward onto its front legs (with the rear legs 3 to 4 inches off the floor) and then setting the machine back down. The legs should adjust automatically. If they don't, you may need to tilt the machine forward and rap on the rear legs with the handle of a hammer to loosen them--a procedure that's easier to accomplish with a helper.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you fix your problem.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Walking Washer


due to weight and normal motion during wash/spin a very sturdy floor is necessary under front loads also some floors are a little slick and sliding may occur ck for weak floor and maybe some kind ok rough cushion under feet to reduce sliding also if on pedistals even more vibration may occur be sure all screws in pedistal are secure usually 4 from top onto bottom of washer also adj legs to lower unit as close to floor as possible and tighten lock nuts

WAY too much shaking


Take out the four "shipping\travel" bolts in the back of the machine. Read the manual- it will tell you how to do this. John
