It sounds to me as if the shipping restraints on the machine tub are still in. If so you will need to remove them. using the machine with them in will severely damage the transmission and tub assembly. This will also void the warranty. Go through your manual to be sure they have all been removed. If they have then check to ensure that the machine is level. If so then you may have a defective unit and need to contact the store that you purchased it from and discuss a refund or swap out. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Just before my machine starts to spin it makes one squeak sound. when it spins its spins very fast and quietly and it doesn't shake at all. any help would be great

Honestly if it is performing properly, these new machines of today make a lot of noises that you may not be used to. Probably nothing to worry about.

Is level and still shakes like crazy on spin

the load in machine is unbalanced. See if the machine shakes with just water in it. If it does not, then the clothing load is not the problem and there is another issue with machine.

On lots of units when this happens a buzzer goes off .

My Washing machine shake a lot when spin the clothes what can I do it.

The 2 common reasons are: The load of clothes is not well distributed in the barrel (may be too large a load); or, you need to adjust the feet on the washer... Normally, they are threaded feet and you just have to turn them until the washer is levelled. Hope this helps!

Shakes a lot on high speed spin

Hi from France,

It is paramount that all washing machines are set absolutely level. The slightest deviation will show on high speed spin.
Often the 2 feet under the rear are not adjustable but the 2 at the front will be. Ensure that there is no way that you can rock the machine as you adjust and that the feet become more difficult to adjust/turn as they reach optimum positioning ( because they are taking the weight of the machine by pushing down onto the floor).
If the machine is not very new and adjustment does not cure, it could be that one or more of the internal shock absorbers is malfunctioning but please ensure it IS absolutely level first!

Front loader has gotten really really loud and shakes the whole floor when it spins properly. Today it left a lot of water in the clothes. It used to make a weird whining noise when it didn't spin out...

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

Basket on washer shakes

Try lifting the inner drum to check if there is any movement between the inner and outer drums, also turn the drum and listen for any grinding or scraping sound from the rear of the drum. Its possible that your bearings have gone out & need to be replaced. The job is far from easy.

Shaking Machine

indicates that the tub support dampers have failed and new support rods are required
available from the service agent or manufacturer
they allow the tub to not be level and that starts off an uncontrolled unbalance situation
