Sounds like the legs on the washer are uneven. Turn the machine on its back and have a look at the base. It should have legs underneath that can be unscrewed and set evenly. Hope this helps!

Excesive Shaking during spin cycle


Your washer has self adjusting rear legs . Tilt the machine foreward and look at the back legs . If one is stuck in , use a screwdrive and pry it out till both legs are in the out position . Set washer back down slowly and the rear legs will automatically adjust .

Washer machine is shaking terrible during the high speed spin


Alot of times with front loader machines they will shake at high speed even if the machine is level. The floor may not sturdy enough. You can put a piece of 3/4" plywood or something like that under you machine. I know putting plywood under your machine is not the best looking thing, but it should help the shaking. The product just needs to to sturdy.

Shaking uncontrollably during spin


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

Kenmore (frigidaire) front load washer shakes


The ply wood will probably make it better. If this is your first front loader then this is all going to be new to you. Front loaders have so much force during the spin cycle and all of that force goes straight to the floor. It will shake like crazy and sound like a plane flying through your house if your floor is not strong. The best thing to do would be to hire someone to come out and go under the house to stabilize the floor under the washer. A simple 2x4 under the washer will do and minimize the shaking. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help you.
