Question about Amana Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

loading washing machines can emit loud noises and vibrations if they
are not properly balanced. Imbalanced machines are the result of large
loads of clothing that rock the machine causing one or more of the feet
to rise off of the floor. Front loading washing machines do not have
this problem because there is no side-to-side motion. Kenmore top
loading washing machines have self-leveling feet on the rear of the
machine and adjustable feet on the front of the machine.
Material needed to carry out the function.
