    Have had washer two weeks. 8 loads. Last two machine violently shakes. All plugs removed. Put level to machine. Completely level. Machine is a WM2233H. We are concerned that use will cause severe damage to motor, etc. Any suggestions?

I also suggest trying to use shelf-liner, the rubber padding, people stick in their silverware drawers. It works, and its very cheap. This will help reduce some of the vibration, people are getting. I recommend this, to all my customers.

Another problem, are the pedestal. These will cause the unit to shake, unless they are leveled properly. Also, with the older style, the ones with the four-metal plates that attach to the side of the pedestal, you'll get some clicking noise. I think this problem, was somewhat solved in the new style.

90% of vibrations are caused NOT by the machine, unless your getting an error message on the display. If you can spin the unit empty and its fine, you have an issue with either the floor not able to support the spin. Keep in mind, most front loaders are designed to have the weight and spin go to the feet and thus the floor. If your unit is on a second level, mobile home, or older home, you need to resupport your floor. If the unit is new.. contact LG at 800-243-0000 and have them send a tech out to check it. You also might try using a rubber type mat under the unit to absorb the vibration. Good Luck.

My whirlpool top load washer vibrates bad and will walk across the floor during the spin cycle even with no clothes in it. I replaced all the springs, the unit is level. I don't know what else to do.

Check the giant flywheel on the back of the drum. Sometimes, the legs that make it up start to corrode and break. When they do, the drum will wobble.

just because the level shows it is doesn't mean it really is. check the pedestal first. make sure it is level and all legs are tight and there is no wiggle. next do the same for the machine once it is put back on the base.
