The washer needs to sit on a solid foundation for this to work. When the washer is spinning a load of clothes, push the corner of the washer till the noise or vibration quiets down. When it does quiet down, adjust the leg below to reduce the noise.
Good luck

Washer shakes when spining. More on heavier loads.


shaking is generally due to inadequate floor structure under machine; i.e. plywood floor. in addition, if the washer is on a "pedistal" it will make matters worse; as the center of gravity is away from the floor. in rare cases, one of the drum "struts" can fall apart; and, cause excessive shaking. if you broke the locknut on one of the legs, unscrew the leg, and bring it to the hardware store for a replacement nut.

When spining it makes very loud noise , like aeroplane when start


Hi.
It definately sounds like the drum bearings have failed.
It is a DIY job, but not easy, as it entails stripping the m/c down,
If it is under 5 years old, then it should be covered by a 5year warranty., you will just have to pay for the labour, certainly the cheapest option.

make sure the transport tie downs have been removed during installation and that all four feet are adjusted properly so machine does not rock.Also make sure your floor is reasonably solid.

One of 2 things may be causing the loud noise.  Either the rear bearing on the drum has failed and will need to be replaced (very expensive) or the drain pump has a bearing problem and is making a very loud noise when it is draining (not too expensive).  Either way, you will need a qualified LG technician to diagnose and repair the problem.

Amana NAV8800AWW making noise while running and spining. It used to shake the floor while spining. But lately machine is making noise but not as shaky as it use to be. Thanks for your help.


Spin Shake is usually contributed to a weak floor support condition. Also, carpeting under the leveling legs can cause a "spongey" effect, which can produce the shakes. Prolonged shaking can cause parts to loosen and make noise.Firstly, we must determine what loosened up from all the shaking.

Remove the front panel by removing the 2-5/16" screws located at the bottom front. Pull out at the bottom to release the top retainer clips, and set aside.
Warning! Never reach inside the machine while it is in operation!
Investigate the cause of the noise by setting the washer to spin, and turn on. Inspect all moving parts for possible wear or breakage. Next, stop the machine and inspect for loose or worn suspension parts, nuts, bolts, struts, hoses banging the cabinet, etc. A protective motor cover can cause noise, or a belt slapping the base mount. Once you have conquered your noise issue, then we will have to eliminate the shakes, provided, what you repaired wasn't the cause...and usually isn't.

Carpeting under the leveling legs should be removed or cut away.
If other items in and around the laundry room shake, then you will need to add support to your floor joists. Shim the floor from under the house while the washer is spinning for best results.

Your installation instruction manual should tell how level the washer properly, after you have added support to your floor.

Good Luck! Post me back if can be of more assistance.
