Washing machine shakes violently during spin


Hi

If your washing machine shakes violently or if there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

I have an Amana Top Load Washer Model Number ntw4800vq1 The washer shakes violently during the Spin Cylce. It will walk across the floor. I took the console off and removed the outer shell. I checked...


Hi

for the question of water comming in the spin cycle, yes its normal we call it a spray rinse. For the shaking check your leveling and also make sure that the back leveling feet when lifting back of washer up and down that the foot mechanism is functining.

Hope this helps

My front loader shakes when in the spin cycle. It shakes a lot! I am not overloading the machine, and the floor is level help?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @20:54 Sat evening 'cos there's nothing on TV!!

Please don't take offence BUT- the floor might be absolutely level BUT the feet on the washer might not be adjusted absolutely perfectly- honestly!
Always shows up most during spinning of course.
I would strongly suggest that you, or a helper, with the machine not working, push STRONGLY at one of the front corners to see if the washer rocks even the tinyest bit. If not one corner then the other.
The back feet do not need to be adjusted, just the one under whichever corner rocks.
It needs adjusting (downwards of course) until it is tight on the floor, really tight but without lifting the machine at that corner. This will ensure stability for starters.
If the machine stills rocks it is possible, although a bit unlikely, that one of the shock absorbers which assist in the suspension of the drum might be malfunctioning. It would need chanmging of course but do check the feet first.

Hope this does cure your problem.

My brand new amana washer shakes violently when spinning


try adjusting the feet on the bottom of the washer the floor may not be level to adjust the legs turn them with a wrench or if the lock nuts are not tight turn the legs clockwise as you look at the front of the machine till all four feet are sung on all 4 corners. This is the most common problem. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya

My Bosh washing machine has excessive vibration according the the level i put on the top of the washer it is level, but still seems to walk accross the floor on the final spin cycle.


it may be level but if the feet are not adjusted to be tight to the floor this will cause it to walk so try adjusting the feet then lock the locking nut I am sure you will find 2 that are not adjusted tight enough.

Maytag walking


Hello. I have a few ideas for you.
1. Tilt the machine forward so the back feet are 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) off the ground, then set it back down. The back feet usually are self-leveling--just raising and lowering the machine like this will cause the feet to re-level themselves.
2. Place your level perpendicular to the front of the machine and check to see if the washer is level in this direction. If it is off, readjust each front foot by the same number of turns until you reach level.
3. Go to the carpet store and buy a remnamt which is the size of the washing machine lengthxwidth. Place this under the machine with the four legs all resting on the carpet.
Regards, Joe

Why does my EPIC z walks during spin cycle even after I used the rubber pads? It moves from the right back corner out to the left.


Make sure that the leveling feet are secure with the jamb nut tight against the BODY of the washer. If not, the washer could walk during spin. Make sure that washer is flat level front to back and side to side with a 24" level. Just set the level on the top near the front and then on both sides as well. Adjust the feet and jamb nuts so that they are as low as possible. If washer is on a stand, remove drawer to adjust feet. Also, if on stands, washer will vibrate more due to increased height and natural flexion of stand. What kind of flooring? If ceramic tile, rubber feet may not couple to surface and provide enough friction to stay in place. I have had success with......I know it might sound stupid.....but buy a couple rubber jar opener pads and cut them into small pads. Put them under the rubber feet of stand or washer. These seem to make a better connection to the floor.

Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle


I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck
