very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

SOURCE: Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle

I had this problem as well. I called dealer and Maytag. They made an appointment and stood me up several times.
I finally went to place that sells refrigeration equipment and bought an anti-vibration pad. It's a 12" square waffle pad used under large equipment to prevent them from vibrating loose on connected piping. I cut it into 4 pieces and put one under each corner of the dryer. Problem solved, in fact it worked so well that I stacked dryer over washer, placed pads between units and have not had a problem since. I also gained a lot of space in my laundry room as well.

Stacking washer and dryer still vibrating and walking during spin cycle even though stacking kit is attached


Assuming that you've installed the stack kit according to instructions, you should check the following:
1. The dryer should be securely attached to the washer and not wiggle or move. The washer must always go on the bottom of the stack.
2. Washer should be level and have all four level legs making solid contact with the floor, no wobbling.
3. Make sure the drain hose is not pinched or restricted (or there is not debris in the drain pump) as a slow pump out will accentuate vibration problems.
4. Make certain you've removed all of the washer packing bolts before using the machine (see owners manual for description.)
5. The floor must be solid with no "springy" or "spongy" feel. No matter what you do to the laundry set it will vibrate on a less than solid floor. This occurs on upstairs installations or other wooden floors, especially in an older home. Sometime the floor can be braced to stiffen it. Also, vibration pads are sold that might help minimize the vibration. The walking is a symptom of vibration.

Experience shows that most problems of this sort result from incorrect installation and/or flooring issues, not the laundry. You should not attach it to the wall. It is possible the washer has a problem in which case a technician would need to check the unit. They can check the suspension and drive system for proper operation.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a problem with your stacked washer & dryer, thank you for providing the model number (of both) that is a good start... however I need to follow that up with a couple of questions.


Are these "new to you" machines or have you had them prior to this and just never stacked ?

Also had you run the washer before they where stacked and not noticed an vibrations violently/noise like a hammer spinning inside?

Finally, what method did you use to fasten the dryer to the top of the washer and did you remove the cabinet top of the washer before stacking...for the record it should not be removed as was the case with some other manufactured machines.

Let me know if you can add anything further along with the make & model. I will wait for your reply to move forward.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My brand new amana washer shakes violently when spinning


try adjusting the feet on the bottom of the washer the floor may not be level to adjust the legs turn them with a wrench or if the lock nuts are not tight turn the legs clockwise as you look at the front of the machine till all four feet are sung on all 4 corners. This is the most common problem. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya

Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle


On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.

Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.


When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

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.
