    Hi Dave.

    Thanks for the help..Anyway when I open the washer I did not see any loose part. but water leak inside. I think it some kind of seal that is leak into a bearing a making the noise. I asks a local guy for fixing it, he is asking for $250.00 for the repair. I am debating to buy a new one or repair it. Any suggestion?



    Thanks,

    AJ

    Had the same problem and found the seal under the inner tub was leaking. The noise is coming from the bearing in the bottom of the outter tub. This bearing went out because of the leaking water.

Spin Shake is usually contributed to a weak floor support condition. Also, carpeting under the leveling legs can cause a "spongey" effect, which can produce the shakes. Prolonged shaking can cause parts to loosen and make noise.Firstly, we must determine what loosened up from all the shaking.

Remove the front panel by removing the 2-5/16" screws located at the bottom front. Pull out at the bottom to release the top retainer clips, and set aside.
Warning! Never reach inside the machine while it is in operation!
Investigate the cause of the noise by setting the washer to spin, and turn on. Inspect all moving parts for possible wear or breakage. Next, stop the machine and inspect for loose or worn suspension parts, nuts, bolts, struts, hoses banging the cabinet, etc. A protective motor cover can cause noise, or a belt slapping the base mount. Once you have conquered your noise issue, then we will have to eliminate the shakes, provided, what you repaired wasn't the cause...and usually isn't.

Carpeting under the leveling legs should be removed or cut away.
If other items in and around the laundry room shake, then you will need to add support to your floor joists. Shim the floor from under the house while the washer is spinning for best results.

Your installation instruction manual should tell how level the washer properly, after you have added support to your floor.

Good Luck! Post me back if can be of more assistance.

My lg washer shake s alot when it is spining and makes a loud noise please can you help


The washer needs to sit on a solid foundation for this to work. When the washer is spinning a load of clothes, push the corner of the washer till the noise or vibration quiets down. When it does quiet down, adjust the leg below to reduce the noise.
Good luck

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

Washer shakes when spining. More on heavier loads.


shaking is generally due to inadequate floor structure under machine; i.e. plywood floor. in addition, if the washer is on a "pedistal" it will make matters worse; as the center of gravity is away from the floor. in rare cases, one of the drum "struts" can fall apart; and, cause excessive shaking. if you broke the locknut on one of the legs, unscrew the leg, and bring it to the hardware store for a replacement nut.
