This type of thing should not be required. Front load washing machines (well, topload too i guess) will balance themselves out for the spin cycle unless the machine is grossly overloaded.

Good luck.

This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

We leveled our machine,but when we run the cycle, it begins to rattle and slams against the wall


The washer balance is mostly controlled by two factors:
  1. Balance of the appliance cabinet (shell)
  2. Suspension of the tub inside the cabinet.
As far as the cabinet is concerned, balance, level, and plumb are determined by the adjustable feet. Installers usually come in with a level and test the level (side to side parallel to ground) and plumb (front to back perpendicular to groud). Many times they overlook the corner to corner balance. I think corner to corner is more important than being plumb or level. Try adjusting.

If that doesn't solve your problem, you may want to check the tub suspension. There are shock absorbers beneath the tub that push in opposite directions to keep the tub balanced in the cabinet. You can access them by removing the front access panel (diagram below -- remove 3 screws and pull out from the bottom to let it fall down)

You will see the shock absorbers in plain view. Wiggle the tub around to see if one is any weaker than the others. If so, replace it.

Excessive drum vibration


Yes, look into trading in the Kenmore for one of only two manufacturers that employ a dynamic balance system built into the washer drum. Samsung and LG both use this dynamic balance system that balances the load while it is in motion. They also use a vibration sensing system to modify the time and speed of the spin cycles to minimize any vibration that might still be present. LG has this available on only their upper level models while Samsung's VRT is available on most all models. I believe that both of these manufacturer's are available from Sears.

LG TROMM noise during spin cycle


Dear Customer,

for ur water not drainin out, please do the the followin checks

  • Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the water pump
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect the motor coupler

  • n for ur rattling during spin cycle please do the followin checks..

    Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs

    Before working on the washer, unplug the appliance or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

    A washing machine may wiggle, rattle or move across the floor. It is often accompanied by excessive noise. There can be several causes and the problem is worse with some machines more than others.
    The most common cause is an unbalanced wash load. Open the lid and when it comes to a stop, redistribute the clothing to balance the weight. Heavy loads, especially things like comforters, are more likely to become unbalanced than small loads. If you do a lot of heavy loads, you should consider a heavy duty/large capacity washer when it comes time to replace your current unit.

    A washer must be level both from side to side as well as from front to back. Washing machines have adjustable feet to enable you to level them. See our article on how to level your washing machine.
    The outer tub is supported by springs, pistons or counterweights to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed.
    Unplug the washer and open the cabinet. Because of the variety of balancing mechanisms, you will have to inspect your machine to determine how it is balanced. Once you discover the mechanism, then inspect it for integrity. In the case of old parts that appear to be in working order, you may not be able to tell if they need to be replaced. They may be weak but appear to be in good condition. If no other solution resolves the problem, then replacing the balancing springs or other moving support parts may be called for.
    Another common cause for excessive movement is the floor on which the washer rests. The washer is heavy and even more so when filled with water. Any floor, other than a concrete slab, will tend to pick up and amplify the vibrations from the machine.
    There are a couple things you can try. If you have access to the joists under the floor, you may be able to beef up the support. Another thing to try is placing a large sheet of plywood under the washer. It should be 3/4" or even 1" thick and as large as possible to distribute the weight. Use a sheet big enough for both the washer and dryer to sit on. If possible fasten the plywood to the existing floor.

    • General tips mentioned above
    • Balance the load
    • Level the machine
    • Inspect the water pump for a blockage
    • Inspect the coupling
    • Inspect the transmission
    • Adjust the drive belt tension
    • Check the motor bearings
    • Check the drum brakes
    Please rate this solution.Thank you..

    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".
