Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

In less than 2 weeks we had to have our new Whirlpool Deut Sport ht replaced because it literally beat itself to death. The 2nd machine had a failed computer board and after replacing machine still beats itself to death. We have follow all the rules and done everything that can possible be done the vibration is so much that it walks across the floor. The unit sits on a pedestal. The only thing we have not done is remove and place directly on floor..any advice would be appreciated!

    My machine is brand new...it has been replaced once..store will not replace again but has sent a CUU unit (for the second one) without cost (we are assuming that because of the violent shaking during spin cycle the unit was compromised. The machine is perfecetally level..the bearing does not appear to mbe the problem. The machine is on a pedestal.

    We can't keep this washer level. During spin it is very loud and vibrates so much it moves and "un-levels" itself. I follow proper clothing loads and detergent instructions. It is a Whirlpool Duet front load washer

    Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle.

    If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced.

    Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

    Don't buy this washing machine!!!

    Pros: Excellent washing performance, little vibration
    Cons: needs to be leveled often, water leaks

    I'm deeply disappointed in the Whirlpool Duet Sport HT Washer. It seemed like the ideal washer.... Shock absorbers, fits anywhere, made for first or second floor laundry rooms, great reliability rating(Whirlpool). I can't believe the issues I've had. The machine worked fine the first day, then, the second day it started gushing water from the opening under the dispenser drawer. I called Sears, they replaced it. The second washer had this awful noise coming from it. Sears, again, replaced the washer. The third, and final machine, again, after about 4 weeks of use, gushed water from the area under the dispenser drawer. I've read the manual completely, trust me, and I can't explain the problems. I'm so disappointed. The machine worked very well, when it worked. My clothes were very clean, the vibration was minimal with the first machine, but the other two had more vibration. This machine is going back. This could be the best machine out there if Whirlpool could figure out the glitches. Maybe the glitches are what delayed the release of the Duet Sport HT.

All washing machines rattle and vibrate during a cleaning cycle, and especially more so during the rinse cycle.

If you have placed it not a pedestal, make sure that the pedestal does not have wheels, or thin legs, as it will invariably move. It is best to place the unit directly on the floor itself.

If you still find that the unit vibrates excessively, it could indicate a faulty bearing on the drum, and I'd recommend getting it replaced once again under warranty..

    The best solution would be to simply replace the machine under warranty, or exchange it for another model. Exercise your warranty options! Thats what you are paying extra for!
