You need to level the machine and then run the jamb nuts located between the feet and base of the machine tight against the bottom of the unit or they will turn and un-level the machine when you use it

SOURCE: my Bosh washing machine has excessive vibration.

it may be level but if the feet are not adjusted to be tight to the floor this will cause it to walk so try adjusting the feet then lock the locking nut I am sure you will find 2 that are not adjusted tight enough.

SOURCE: why does my brand new washing machine sound like

It is the dampers on the underside of the drum that have failed.
There are normally 2 dampers.
Bit like shock absorbers
If one or both fail the machine will try to go into orbit !

Vibrates when it spins


Here are a few quick facts on washing machine vibration.
  1. All washing machines and dryer vibrate. Dryers usually have less vibration than washers because the load is only wet clothes (as opposed to a drum of water and clothes). Front loading washing machines cause high frequency vertical oscillation while top loading washers usually have horizontal oscillation.
  2. Almost all front loading washing machines are not recommended for use on standard joist-construction floors (most common floor type, compared to a concrete slab sub-floor). Manufactures like GE, LG, Maytag, Samsung, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Bosch and more, all recommend installing a pad like Silent Feet under the washing machine to absorb the vibration.
  3. The only alternative to using Silent Feet pads to prevent structural damage is costly upgrading of the sub-floor. This usually involves adding a second layer of plywood sub-floor and adding sister boards to the rafters that support the floor. But even this won't reduce the amount of vibration noise that you hear. Sub-floor upgrades can cost thousands of dollars.
  4. Vibration can also cause appliance "walking" (unwanted movement) usually during the spin cycle. Simply installing a pad designed to prevent walking can solve this problem and mean that you'll never have to reposition your washer after every load again. Both Original Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet prevent walking, however for washers that move a lot or stacked units it is recommended that you install Anti-Walk Silent Feet for the best results.
You were not specific in either type or model. I hope the above information helps. Also, the size of the loads plays a great part in how a machine functions. have a nice day

Excessive vibrating and banging in the spin cycle with some washes. The unit is only 1 month old. Any advice?


You have a improper installation. The machine has to be perfectly level side to side and frotnt to back. After leveling, check the feet on the bottom and see if one is bouncing on spin with a load. Adjust the bouncing foot down until machine stops bouncing.

My 3431 dryer takes too long to dry and it vibrates badly during the spin cycle.


You have two issues. The cycle time on this unui in the normal mode is 3+ hours. If it is longer than this you have a clogged condensate/dry duct which needs to be cleaned out by an LG tech. The balance thing is a matter of using a level and getting it perfectly level. Once you have done this, if it still bounces check the feet and adjust the one that is not solid on the floor while the machine is bouncing.

There are pads on the tripod and skid plate that wear out and can be replaced. There is fluid in the tub ring that may have leaked out. The base (tripod) can be bent and cause vibration problems. The flooring material and support can cause this also. I would start with the floor and work up through and eliminate the causes to find the culprit.

Need to balance washing machine drum


The drum should not need balancing, but the washer should be level in all directions. If the washer is level, but vibrates excessively during spin cycle, you may need to replace the springs. There is a set of suspension springs which act as shock absorbers. When these wear out the washer will bounce across the floor unless the clothes are 100% balanced in the washer.
