Iv'e got a LG Top loader.WF-T755A. When it spins the drum shakes violently and move the washing machine around . It also makes a loud noise while doing it. What is wrong please?

The load is off balance. Instead of being evenly spread out along the drum, your laundry is bunched up on one side. Try smaller loads to allow the clothes to move more freely in the water.

Why does my washing machine not complete a rinse & spin cylcle?

is it a top loader? if so, older top loaders do not have a balancing function so you must evenly distribute the load.

Kenmore 2600 TOP LOADER smells like Mildew. I can hear water sloshing around under drum. Is that Normal?

The drain on all washers have this issue. Unless the drain hose runs down hill, when the pump stops, water runs back into the machine that was in the hose but was not drained.

Whirpool top loader off balance in spin cycle

Your machine is probably not standing perfectly level. To level the machine, partly fill it with water. Make sure that the drum is standing in the middle of the machine and then adjust the machine until the water is at the same level all around at the nearest set of holes to the water. Check that the drum is still in the center of the outer drum. Make sure that the adjusting feet are all firmly on the floor and that you cannot rock the machine at all by hand. A top loader must be 100% level or it will shake.

Shaking

Most common cause for the machine to shake during the spin cycle is due to a unbalanced load. A load of a couple of small bulky items or a small load in general may not be able to distribute the weight properly causing the machine to be unbalanced. It is best to wash full loads whenever possible. We have a brand new front loader as well, our first load about took the walls down...We just tossed a couple things in to see how it worked....thats how I learned to wash full loads. Now with the knowledge of why it shook so bad, we have had no more problems. Hope this helps

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle

syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
