The back legs are usually not adjustable. Adjust the front legs & lock them with the lock nuts, at the lowest level, that is the machine tilts towards the front. Adjust further if there is any shake when you try with your hands.

You could also check to see if any springs or shocks have become loose. Refer manual.

Leveling kenmore elite front loader


  • Place the level on the top of the washing machineicon1.png to see if it is level. Make sure you test it side to side and front to back.

    Pull the washing machine away from any walls if you have to make an adjustment to the legs.


  • Lift the washericon1.png and place the wood block underneath the washer. Place the block near the leg that needs to be adjusted, but don't let it obstruct the leg.

  • Loosen the nut that secures the legicon1.png with the wrench.

  • Raise the height of the leg by twisting it to the left, or lower the height by twisting it to the right.

  • Remove the block of wood from under the washer and recheck the machine with the level.

  • Raise or lower the leg if additional adjustments are needed.

  • Tighten the nut on the leg with the wrench when the machine is level.

  • Repeat the process for each leg that needs to be adjusted.

  • Move the washer back into position and check with the level again to make sure the washer remains stable to finish leveling the machine.

    I have a Maytag Model # LA806-02, which dances across the flor when in the spin mode. Tighting the three centering spring has helped very little.


    If your Maytag is dancing across the floor the most common problem is the leveling. If one or more of the feet are not level it ill wobble and walk around the floor. When you level the machine on the top both directions make sure the set nut is tightened so you will not have to retighten it again later.

    Can't keep washer level


    as far as leveling goes once leveling legs have been set,you can lock them in place by turning the nut on leg itself counter clockwise until its secure to top of leg,however if the unit is shaking during spin cycle and is located in upper floor laundry setting,chances are the floor is weak,and cannot withstand downward force generated during final spin...add an absorption pad under unit to assist/alleive the issue

    Leveling ge washer


    Try using plastic shims from any Major hardware outlet, and place on the right side until even. Make sure the shims, or even a block of wood the space you need to level the unit. Try screwing the back right leg out as far as you can and screw the left back leg in to shorten it, if you have that feature.

    Spacers and Balance


    take the lid off the spacers should be at the back but when u undue the big hex screws at the back they usually fall out anyway now easiest way to balance is by just using the front adjusters and not the back make slight adjustment on each leg just so you stop swaying from side to side you dont make the washer level level you need it to sloop slightly backwards anyway to stop water from coming out of the soap drawer another thing i do when leveling a washer is once u turn 1 leg with 1 hand hold the washer by the top so u stop it from rocking now adjust the other leg up until that 1 hits the floor and turn once more now try and rock it if it doesnt move from side to side now your done dont adjust the back legs more than likely it doesnt have legs at the back most have wheels on the back now anyway m8
