Check the leveling of the washer. Try rocking from Front Left the the Rear Right and to the Front Right to the Left Back. If it's good then your floor may be an issue. Ceramic tile is the WORST and if that's the case there's not much of a solution. The floor may have some "give" to it. In a nutshell, the floor needs to be solid and smooth. Another thing that whirlpool recommends to reduce vibration is to separate fabrics. Mixing fabrics messes with the harmonics of machine. Also, use HE soap only. You don't want suds because they can cause out of balance conditions as well. Hope this helps,

1989 honda prelude si. Automatic,shakes real bad when stopped.has no power,pedal to floor barely goes over 30 mph. Smells of fuel,i removed the cat now car,starts at least,but still wants to die and rough...


If the shaking has been progressively getting worse i would start by checking the engine and transmission mounts for rips or tears. Smelling fuel and major loss of power would suggest that you have a fuel leak somewhere. The sending unit its self is a culprit that can be hard to locate so if in doubt check it as well.

What causes my picture shake


Check your TV level ... it must stand on a firm foundation ... it wobbles because your floor shakes - reduce the shaking by improving its contact with the floor.

How to build height without medicines suggest only exercise


1. VERTICAL HANGING:
This is a simple but an extremely effective stretching exercise which you can do at your home. All you need to have is a solid bar strong enough to hold an individual, fixed at least 7 feet above the ground such that the distance between your feet and the floor is atleast 4-6 inches. Hold your arms neither closer nor wider and start hanging. Hold as long as you can, and as you begin to tire, slowly swing back and forth and try to touch the ground with your feet. This will flex your spine and elongate it, so that you can add few inches to your height
Make sure that you flex your spine while stretching, and not merely twisting your wrists
Perform the Workout 3 times a week for optimal results
2. COBRA STRETCH:
This is basically a Yoga exercise intended to stretch your spine and make it supple and flexible, so that the cartilage between your vertebrae grows thereby increasing your vertical height
Lie on the floor face down with palms on the floor under your shoulders. Begin to arch your spine up leading with your chin. Arch as far back as possible. Do 3-4 repetitions with each repetition lasting between 5-30 seconds
3. PILATES ROLL OVER:
This is an excellent workout to stretch your spine and lengthen your upper body. Apart from your spine, it also stretches and lenghthens the vertebrae of your neck.
Lie on your back with your arms along your sides, palms down. With your legs together, extend them straight up toward the ceiling and bend them backwards so that they touch the floor. It may not be possible to touch the floor at first, but you can do this by practice. The more your stretch, the more your spine lenghthens
4. FORWARD SPINE STRETCH:
Sit up tall on a mat. Your legs are extended about shoulder width apart, and your feet are flexed. Reach the top of your head but let your shoulders stay relaxed. Inhale and extend your arms out in front of you and slowly bend forward and try to touch the tips of your toes. If you are able to touch your toetips, stretch even forward so that your spine is flexed to the maximum extent.
Do 3-4 repetitions and hold each stretch for 10-15 seconds
5. ANKLE WEIGHTS: This exercise is solely intended to increase the length of your lower body, by stretching the cartilate between your knees. Prolonged stretching will elongate the cartilage and increase its mass, which in turn will increase the length your lower body
Sit on a high chair and use a Ankle weight fastener to add weights to your ankle. Start with small weights initially and gradually increase as you go on. Allow your legs to stretch down with the pressure of the weights. Once completed, remove the weights and relax your legs by kicking your legs gently for 5-10 times, and then vigorously for 5-10 times. This will flex your knee cartilate to enable it to grow in length

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.

Hi, Have you heard of problems with the new washing machines that spin so hard they damage floors?


I have not heard of the machine damaging floors. the new front loading machines do spin at a high rate of speed. It is so fast that if it is not on a solid floor it will shake the floor. I have been in homes that have a front loarder on the second floor and it literally shakes the whole house. This is why this machine should be only on concrete floors.

Amana NAV8800AWW making noise while running and spining. It used to shake the floor while spining. But lately machine is making noise but not as shaky as it use to be. Thanks for your help.


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.
