SOURCE: Vibration

You may need to reinforce the floor.

Is it on the first or second floor?

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: noisy spin cycle

It would be noisier than normal if it was not level.
Best way to tell if it is noisier than normal is to spin the drum by hand, there should be little or no noise from it.
If it is noisy or rumbling, or feels rough, then I would suspect that the drum bearings are worn and noisy.
An hour to complete a wash cycle is not abnormal, and they do do several rinses.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Excessive vibration on spin cycle.

Front loaders are prone to vibration problems. Don't want to go into the technical details of why, but it's important that they're placed on very solid surface (preferably concrete or tile), and checked that their feet have been adjusted so that the machine is level. Unfortunately, most people don't have a concrete pad for their washer. One simple option to consider is to provide dampening of the vibrations. This can be done very simply as this one fellow demonstrates. The main thing to keep in mind with this solution is that it is merely trying to dampen the vibrations. Don't be too forceful in your own solution (think lightly touching the top of a vibrating tuning fork with your finger to stop the tone).

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle


There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

Make sure the washer is leveled properly and all four feet are resting on the floor. If it is level, try running one cysle without any clothes in it to see it is spins without that violent shaking.. you may have also had an out of balance load.. Hope that helps!

Noisy spin cycle


several points. did you put in transit bolts for move and forget to remove them? is machine sitting square on all four legs? is it sitting on a suspended floor? if joist spacing is wide, then this can result in vibration.
