The machine vibrates badly no matter what we do

This machine vibrates badly no matter what we do. We have braced up the floor and leveled the machine and it still vibrates to the point of not being safe to use.

Stacking washer and dryer still vibrating and walking during spin cycle even though stacking kit is attached


Assuming that you've installed the stack kit according to instructions, you should check the following:
1. The dryer should be securely attached to the washer and not wiggle or move. The washer must always go on the bottom of the stack.
2. Washer should be level and have all four level legs making solid contact with the floor, no wobbling.
3. Make sure the drain hose is not pinched or restricted (or there is not debris in the drain pump) as a slow pump out will accentuate vibration problems.
4. Make certain you've removed all of the washer packing bolts before using the machine (see owners manual for description.)
5. The floor must be solid with no "springy" or "spongy" feel. No matter what you do to the laundry set it will vibrate on a less than solid floor. This occurs on upstairs installations or other wooden floors, especially in an older home. Sometime the floor can be braced to stiffen it. Also, vibration pads are sold that might help minimize the vibration. The walking is a symptom of vibration.

Experience shows that most problems of this sort result from incorrect installation and/or flooring issues, not the laundry. You should not attach it to the wall. It is possible the washer has a problem in which case a technician would need to check the unit. They can check the suspension and drive system for proper operation.

Washer bouncing while spinning


Make sure the unit is leveled and on a solid surface. You may have to brace the floor up under the washer if the floor is too flexible. To test this place a glass of water on the floor in front of the washer. if the water vibrates and ripples in the cup the floor is weak. Manufacturer's came up with this test.

The inner washing machine tub seems to vibrate in spin cycle only.


you could have a bad balance ring or if the machine is on a floor that is not very sturdy it could cause the machine to vibrate or "walk". if the tub is loose it may need to be tightened which usually isnt the case. most vibration i notice is from the floor or the machine not being level.
