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.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

Our new Zanussi Lindo300 washing machine moves around quite dramatically when on spin due to vibrations even on 800rpm spin. I have to push machine back into position after washl. Can some one advise.


The load is unbalanced. Try moving heavier or bunched up clothes to a different place in the tub and watch it spin. You may have to rearrange the load slightly to keep the vibrations to a minimum.

Spin vibrations


Make sure the legs on all four corners are down tight and even level the machine with this 4 pads. If the machine is level it will vibrate less, and then not all machines are completely quiet when working, especially on spin cycle..

Vibrating only on final spin


no cement is perfectly level so you will need to level it with a spirit level

Vibration of wash machine


Hi!

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. If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
