Confirm you've removed the transit bracket that ties the drum assembly to the outer casing in new machines.

Also (honest, I have seen this done, albeit only once!), confirm you haven't accidentally removed the concrete ballast weights from the inside of the machine while trying to get the transit bracket off.

On the spin cycle my samsung front load washer wibbles and vibrates badly. I have replaced the shocks but that didn't work. What else could it be?


Check that it is level and that all the water is draining out when the wash cycle is complete. Check that the wash drum and all associated parts are correctly in place and are secure. Check the drum for excessive play, replace defective parts.
Also look for loose objects from clothing that may be jammed out of site but causing centrifugal throwout vibration.

Perfect level sounds very strange


Check the leveling feet on your machine. With the machine turned off, and with a small carpenter's level, check to make sure the machine is level front to back and side to side. Then give the machine a shake in each direction to make sure that the feet (which are adjustable). If the machine wobbles-even a little bit- adjust the feet until all 4 feet are in contact with the floor and the machine fails to wobble when pushed.
Rerun a load and see if the machine has stopped sending morse code...
you can also make sure that the fill hoses aren't banging into the machine or the wall during the cycle.
let me know if you have success!

During spin cycle on every load the machine is wobbling around as if it was out of balance. The machine is level. I have the front off but dont see any issues.


Hi,
When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

We bought a new front loading washer but on the spin cycle it moves around alot


I assume you have removed the transit/shipping screws before attempting to use it, if not, you must do so before using it anymore.
Also the washer must nbe perfectly level on tne floor, both back to front, and side to side.

Brand new front load kenmore wobbles and moves across floor


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

LG Front Load Washer Problem


The washer is not leveled correctly.  You will need to adjust the front feet to level the machine.  Run a load of clothes in the washer.  When it gets to the spin mode, check the level of the machine by pushing the front left corner and the front right corner.  If the noise quiets down on either corner of the machine, adjust the legs on that side.
