Check that the machine is level and that the leveling feet are not screwed out too far. If necessary, screw them back in and restart to level the machine. With a front loader it is more important to have the machine standing completely completely firm on all four its feet than to have it exactly 100% level. You must not be able to rock the machine by hand at all and the floor on which it is standing must be solid with no give in it at all.

Ftf530es knocks during spin cycle


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES, is having trouble with the drum rocking back and forth, from front to back. I suggest making sure that your washer is level. I would check from front to back, side to side, as well as from corner to corner. If you have leveled your appliance and are still noticing the drum rocking from front to back I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Knocking Whirlpool Duet


Is the waher sitting on a solid surface? Front loaders can not be put on wooden platforms unless they are very sturdy ad built well. Most knocking problems with front loaders are due to where they are installed..since you are familier with the front panel removal, remove it and then put the washer in the spin cycle. Then watch the unit spin and make sure there are no struts in the bottom that are broken or have seperated from the top half. If there is a broken strut you will need to replace it.

Our Maytag washer rocks violently during the spin cycle.It shakes the whole house and seems to be getting worse. We put shock absorber rubber mats under it but it just rocks off them.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you must have a broken balance spring/shock on your machine...

I suggest you contact a service company

Shakes violently during spin cycle from back to


I had this problem with my front loader as well. It is probably the mounts or "level shocks" on the bottom of the unit under the tub. I have a Kenmore by Frigidaire and had to replace the "level shocks". I only paid about $43.00 and was not that hard to put on. Look under your machine and see if the shocks are connected to the tub. Check under the top panel also to see if that particular model has mounts up there too.

Maytag lat6914aae top load washer shakes violently in spin cycle


A washer can have self leveling legs at the back. If they are rusty or clogged and not free to move, they will not self level and the machine will rock when working. Check the leveling apparatus, it's a bunch of metal pieces going across the lower back of the machine. Spray them with a lubricant and move them to make sure they are free.

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.

Agitator fall off and knocking noise during spin cycle


there should be a rubber washer with the bolt. if it is missing the bolt may back of during agitation. also the threads on the transimision may be stripped. Some Green lock tight found in most hard ware stores should help. the knocking noise is probably due the agitator coming loose.
