Washing machine balance is off since we moved it.

How do you balance a front load washing machine after moving it? It walks forward when spinning. Is there a way to balance it?

There are tension springs attached to the tub. They are for the balancing upon spinning. Check and see if one came loose

What will cause my Whirlpool washing machine to set on low speed spin cycle?


The machine uses automatic load sensors to balance the load and when you put something in the machine that is big, like a comforter, it knows that it cannot balance that item. So with a front loader it wont spin at high speed because it would be off balance and either damage the machine or the machine would "walk" because of the off balance motion.

During spin, machine moves!


Hi,

Did you remove the transport rods from the back of the unit? this will cause the unit to jump around a lot when it goes into the spin cycle. Also make sure the feet are all level and the unit doesn't rock from side to side.

The machine is level but the drum spins as if it were not. loud and the machine moves forward


These new front load machines are much heavier and spin much faster than the top load machines. If you have old wood floors in your home or you live in a mobile home, the machine may tend to "walk" or vibrate on the floor. You can try putting something under the machine to help prevent it from walking as it is spinning.

The washing machine is balanced, however it moves on the spin cycle. The actual machine moves forward and is very dangerous.


go to a place like walmart in the fabric section, they will have some stuff thats made to put under rugs to keep them from sliding, i call it rubber lace. cut some and put it under the feet.

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance


Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

Moving


Don't know if you've done it, but put a level on the machine itself and make sure it is level. Adjust it front, back and side to side. This may cure your "walking problem".

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
