Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a LG wd8013f 7 kg front loader. We have leveled it with a spirit level, both ways. It has improved the situation, it no longer walks. But it still rumbles and makes a lot of noise as if it was out of balance. Can you give advice as to what we may be able to do? John

New or Used ? Drum might have gotten jolted and out of alignment. Call LG and see if that isnt the case.

When spinning it is viabrating and machine moving

hi, the problem you are having is caused by the machine not sitting level all you need to do is adjust the feet so that the machine is sitting level, your going to need a spirit level and someone to help you tip the machine back slightly to got to the front legs all you then need to do is unscrew the legs until the machine is level from front to back and from side to side.
it may take a while to get right but once its level you will no longer have the problem you are having and also the machine will be a lot less noisy

My front loading washer walks during use. Is

ther feet to the front of the washer are adjustable. You need either a spanner or a pair of pliers to adjust them. Get a spirit level and check which way the washer needs adjusting to make it level. Adjust the feet accordingly

Washer is "walking" during the spin cycle

I have the same Duet that vibrates heavily during spin cycle. Leveled the unit with no success (our unit is mounted on the high base). Long story short, I went to Lowes and purchased a package of 4"X5" self stick foam rubber pads called Grippers by Wasman Consumer Group and paid a low price of $3.50. Since the washer walked forward, I cut one of the two Pads in the package in half, removed the sticky side paper protector and centered a half, sticky side to washer pad, to each front washer pad. The problem was solved.

I made sure the round floor pads of the washer were tight and the unit was level before attaching the Grippers. Hope this helps.

Don't know if you've done it, but put a level on the machine itself and make sure it is level. Adjust it front, back and side to side. This may cure your "walking problem".
