LG front loaded washing machine vibrates during


If its on a pedistal then that will raise your center of gravity and cause the unit to be less sturdy during a spin. It could also be due to a weak floor. You may want to try a product called "shake away pads". The probably sell them at like home depot or lowes. They will run you about 40 bucks but they just go under the legs and help absorb some shock. Good luck _MJ_

Washer shakes when spining. More on heavier loads.


shaking is generally due to inadequate floor structure under machine; i.e. plywood floor. in addition, if the washer is on a "pedistal" it will make matters worse; as the center of gravity is away from the floor. in rare cases, one of the drum "struts" can fall apart; and, cause excessive shaking. if you broke the locknut on one of the legs, unscrew the leg, and bring it to the hardware store for a replacement nut.

Washer is off balance for a kenmore elite quietpak he4t How do you level washer?


adj all 4 feet all the way in..try to rock washer adj front feet as need to give washer as solid footing as possible tighten lock nut in top position against washer bottom ..adj only as much as need ..the further out the feet are the more likely the washer is to vibrate ..a weak floor is the biggest reason washers vibrate ..if washer is on a pedistal be sure the for screws holding pedistal to washer are tight adj pedistal legs same as washer feet so bottom of pedistal is as close to floor as possible

We just installed a new whirlpool front loading duiet sport washer and dryer , It keeps going off balance it was installed by the store . we have had the service man out twice now , he is no help at all....


floor may not be as solid as you think.remove pedistal drawers make sure the screws holding pedistal to washer are tight 2 front and 2 back going into bottom of washer frame next adj legs so bottom of pedistal is as close to the floor as possible you may have to lossen the lock nuts to do this next try rocking the unit by hand and adj front legs as needed to stop motion and and give washer a solid feel retighten lock nuts up to bottom of pedistal

Lg washing machine pedistals


You will have to have the washer lifted to screw the leg back into the bottom. As far as the shaking...try some vibration isolation pads. www.keshakeaway.com the best $30 i have ever spent.I have a front loader on a pedestal also..it vibrated the pictures of the wall in the next room. with the pads I hardly know its running.( and the drawer stays shut)

Rocking and VIbrating


As long as you have it on the second floor there really isnt anything you can do to fix it anything you do will probably make it worse there is only one washer i know of that is front load and acts decent on the second story and thats the new samsung with the roller bearings. Sorry to tell you but u will probably end up moving it to the basement
