Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this!)
I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same.
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 and please score this accordingly. Thanks,
John C

Rough idle problem with Santa Fe. I changed the egr valve no good. Very bad vibration it turns out my injectors where very bad and it didn't show up on many diagnostic systems plus airflow meter was bad...

no year stated

first off its not a jeep, i moved your post.

this is not a question.
and misfire is caused by over 50 things.
and the PCM is not AI yet, come back in 2050 and we might be there. (artificial intelligence, Alan Turing dream, is not here yet) sorry.
it still takes hard work, a real scan tool and experience to find problems. Did you drive the car hard with scan tool logging full time.

sounds like the problem was not the engine at all (not misfiring at all)
, but was a pure physical mech failure.
of a clutch.
any thing can break at any time, in the real world,
car has 3000 parts, any can fail.

I have two hard drives on my computer one is nearly full the other has on a few things on it, but i don't know how to transfer things from the full one to the empty one

Just simply copy any big folders you have on your full drive onto anywhere else on the empty one. Remember to start installing things to the empty one too. Right Click>Copy>Paste onto empty drive.

Start>Computer> You should see your two drives.

HI, our Amana ice maker produces only a shell of an ice cube sometimes. It happens during half of a harvest is emptied. We turn the ice off and let it sit for a few hours and then some harvests are...

you are having a problem with not enough water getting into the ice maker.
we call this getting "hollow cubes"
you have to clear or replace the valve that connects to your house water line. most are whats known as a "piercing type" valve. they get plugged or break into the water line of your house.
you can try to shut off the valve and then turn back on and see if you get full size cubes after that.
most likely you will have to replace the valve with a "drill type" of valve from your local hardware store.
this is very common and the new valve will fix your problem.

Vibrating Front Loader

An experienced appliance technician can quickly check the balance of the machine. If the tub is off-balance or one of the balancing springs has been damaged then the technician should be able to resolve the problem without too much trouble.
Installing anti-vibration pads is also a good solution. Some pads are much better than others. Pads made of hard neoprene rubber are okay but try to find something made with a urethane rubber or multi-compound material. My appliance repair tech swears by Silent Feet pads from The Vibration Solution.

Amana APO95R Turning Off/Tank Light (!) On and Off

There are only two items that will shut it down after it is set to run. The bucket full which you took care of and low humidity in the area it is being operated in. Low humidity would not constitute a reason for returning it.
