Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Although you say it's level I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain.
I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
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

Maytag washing machine walks across floor during spin cycle


Did you set the back feet before leveling? On most units to set and lock the back feet you need to pull the top towards you so that the back is raised off the floor, then set it down again, this will release the feet and lock then down. The you level the two front feet. After this is done you must make sure your load is balanced. Distribute the items as evenly as you can in the tub. Once it gets to the spin cycle if its walking or shaking a lot, stop it and redistribute the items more evenly in the tub. Also try not to overload the unit or combining many heavy items with few light ones. If this is a new machine, did you remove the shipping locks from the back before using it? They have plastic strips attached to them, make sure they have all been removed, as well as any shipping bolts.

Washer walks across floor on spin cycle and my level says its level


If the level is registering the machine as level, then you probably have an unbalanced load that is causing it to "walk." When it starts walking, lift the lid, wait until the spinning stops and redistribute the articles in the basket. I hope this helps. If you're satisfied with my solution, please rate my solution on Fixya.

I have a Maytag 3000 washer and I have adjusted the feet numerous times to keep it from walking. Do you have any suggestions? The floor is good but likes to walk during spin cycle.


did you level the unit first as per owners manual, then after its level did you turn the "jamb huts" on the legs with a 9/16" open ended wrench above the feet up against the cabinet bottom?,if you dont do this step the vibration in spin will turn the legs again and un-level the unit

Roper washer ras7133kq0 walks all over when spinning. it is level...how do i get it apart and what do i do to fix it.


You say that the machine is level, but sometimes using a level isn't enough. Each leg of the machine must bear 25% of the weight/force. The machine generates extreme centrifugal force when spinning. I have used a level and had the bubble perfect, but still had the machine walk all over. I would make some adjustments on the supports before I tore into the washer looking for other possible problems. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer is "walking" during the spin cycle


I have the same Duet that vibrates heavily during spin cycle. Leveled the unit with no success (our unit is mounted on the high base). Long story short, I went to Lowes and purchased a package of 4"X5" self stick foam rubber pads called Grippers by Wasman Consumer Group and paid a low price of $3.50. Since the washer walked forward, I cut one of the two Pads in the package in half, removed the sticky side paper protector and centered a half, sticky side to washer pad, to each front washer pad. The problem was solved.

I made sure the round floor pads of the washer were tight and the unit was level before attaching the Grippers. Hope this helps.

LG1812CW Walks During Spin Cycle


The rear 2 legs are fixed. The front 2 are adjustable. There are lock nuts to prevent the adjustment from coming loose. The front legs are to be adjusted to the minimum. While not running if the machine rocks, continue the adjustment. For few clothes there is a half load switch; best the read the manual well before anything. Well if the walking continues, check the rear for any shocks or springs that may hv fallen off during transport. Plug off the wall socket first.
