Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Balance it
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

My Speed Queen washer shakes and walks during the spin cycle. I have leveled the machine and ajusted the amount of clothes in subsequent loads and it still shakes. How do I solve this? Thank you!


Did you remove the shipping bolts from the back of the washer? They are located on the back, usually very clearly marked "REMOVE" and have a red or yellow plastic washer/bushing. This is a fairly common problem with front load washers, from what I understand.

They're big suckers, and they keep the drum suspension from absorbing any vibration (so the drum doesn't slam around during shipping). Good luck!

These machine like to be loaded to capacity. Under loading them is the major cause of shaking. Try loading the drum all the way lightly filled but not packed. Another thing to look for is that it was installed properly. It is very important with theses machine that they be leveled properly at install. If this was not done shaking can occur.

Shake when spins even when no clothes in it


Make sure the lags are solid to the floor. Any bit of difference will be exagerate when the washer spins. put a piece of paper under each of the front legs. While the washer is spinning try and pull the paper out. If you can pull the paper out with no problem, that leg needs adjusted to the floor more. If Ican help further, please let me know

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.

Shaking is caused by poor distribution of clothes causing an imbalance. Try the machine empty. If it works well, be aware that you'll have to redistribute your load to stop the shakes.
