On the spin cycle my samsung front load washer wibbles and vibrates badly. I have replaced the shocks but that didn't work. What else could it be?


Check that it is level and that all the water is draining out when the wash cycle is complete. Check that the wash drum and all associated parts are correctly in place and are secure. Check the drum for excessive play, replace defective parts.
Also look for loose objects from clothing that may be jammed out of site but causing centrifugal throwout vibration.

Washing machine vibration


I had same problem. It was actually wearing out the rubber gasket on front door. It ended up being the spider on back of drum. They corrode pretty good with the front loaders.

LG WM3987HW Washer Spining very wild


I've just uploaded a service manual.

relevant info pasted below: --

Regulate a specific spin speed that generates excessive vibration and noise as follows:
1) Put an unbalance part (rubber) inside of the drum.
(this is a special weight that service people use. It clips into the drum. If you don't have it, throw in about 4 to 6lbs of damp laundry.)

2) Start the QC test mode (Refer to section 7-2).
7-2 says turn the washer off, then press 'spin speed' and 'soil level' at the exact same time. Then, while holding both buttons, press power to start "QC test mode"

3) Press Delay Wash button, then ' tst ' is displayed on lcd
4) Press the Spin Speed button repeatedly to select Extra High.
5) Press the Quick Cycle button, the spin speed is displayed.
6) Press the Start/Pause button.
7) Press the Beeper button repeatedly to set spin speed (600, 800, 1000, 1200 rpm) and check if there is vibration
and noise.
8) If there is no vibration and noise, increase the spin speed by pressing Beeper button.
9) If there is vibration and noise, rotate the Cycle selector knob clockwise to reduce the Spin Speed (reduce by 50
and 100 rpm). In case of 600 rpm, it can not reduce the spin speed.
10) If vibration and noise are reduced, press the Quick Cycle button to store (2 beep sounds).
* If you want to return to factory default spin speed setting, repeat above steps except step 9)

I took my washer all appart to clean the gum out of the tub now the spin cycle hits and bangs the sides so much you cant use it


Assume this is front loading washing machine, Check drum dampeners are firm, any cables that were held by cable ties near the drum and were removed in order to remove the cables in order to access the drum need to be replaced with new cable ties, there shouldn't be anything loose dangling around near the drum, as it will strike when the drum vibrates during its spin cycle.

My washer is brand new and it vibrates the entire house when it is on the spin cycle. It doesn't matter how much clothing or what spin cycle setting it is on. I've check to make sure that the unit is...


If it brand new I would call back the service man or store I bought it from..From what your saying..it either has a powerful motor or the drum is out of balance with out any cloths in it....Put it in spin mode with nothing in it...If you get vibrations its one of two things...Either the whole washer isn't leveled correctly or its a unbalanced washer drum...Call them back and tell them either they come out to check it or you want it replaced....Be firm...It'd your money

Clothes washer vibration during spin cycles


the vibration and noise is most likely from the drum bearings wearing out to test the bearings try this out,,,
open the door, hold the top of the drum and lift it up, if it has any free lift in it the bearings are going, now spin the drum by hand and you should here the rumble off the bearings

During the spin cycle basket vibrates very badly - very rough


I had a similar problem. During the final high spin and there was POW and the drum went funky eating into the plastic. I opened the back of the washer and look things over,.The belt for spinning was intact. I set the washer on a drain/spin option and watched from the front and back. While watching the pulley on the drum and could tell there was a hiccup as it went around. I pulled the pulley off and put on a new pulley. The new pulley was going in a perfect circle to spin the drum. It's not a hard repair, just need a little muscle to loosen the nut holding the pulley on and the same muscle to tighten the nut as much as possible. Hope this helps.

Washer drum shakes excessively during fast spin


y shaped piece that contains the spindle that attatches to the basket and allows it to spin is corroded and cracking. you can't buy just the spindle bracket, you must buy the basket too. you'll be buying the front part of the drum too, if you wait to long.
