Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Shakes Violently Our GE WBVH6240 Shakes violently during the spin cycle. It is about a year and a half old and the problem seems to be getting worse. I looked inside at the struts and everything appears to be fine. I even spent a lot of time ensuring the machine is as level as possible and all four corners are planted firmly on the ground. Any suggestions. It seems to me that the load will not distribute itself around the tub properly. This problem occurs with any size load.

    I just hit 14 mths on my washer and dryer. This is the 2nd washer i've had due to the violent shaking. I am so disappointed in GE and this washing machine. Oh and did I mention my warranty is up and it's $80 for GE service just to come to my house. I think for price of these machines they should be a little better quality when it comes to the suspension. Any one have any other ideas on how I can get a new washer or fix this one myself?

Run it with the top access panel open and watch,
while you are there try out the suspension ,
you do it like an old car push it down , push to sides etc .
it should resist and return well. no bounce. tight.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you must have a broken balance spring/shock on your machine...

I suggest you contact a service company

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle


There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Kenmore Oasis HE shakes violently during spin cycle


Machine legs should be adjusted so that machine is level and standing on all four legs. The load in the machine should be evenly distributed. Utube has an excellent video on washing machine repair.

Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle


On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
