In each of the four corners are adjustment feet. they're white nylon bolts. use a spirit level to level the front, then put the level from the front to the back on both sides and adjust the rear feet.

The washing Machine knocks during spinning


Easy fix: Readjust the riser supports and level the washer. Some washers have adjustable feet that screw up and down. Put a level across the top of the washer and when it is level front and back, the legs are in the correct position. Some units have auto-level adjustment meaning you have to pull your washer forward and bounce it gently back toward the wall and lift the Front in the same fashion. In some cases side to side adjustment by lifting one side up and then the other can do the same thing in adjusting the levels. Either way you must LEVEL the washer in order to STOP the rattle or bounce.

My washing machine when it is spinning the tub bumps against the wall of the machine, how can I fix this problem.?


Usually when this happens the cloths are off balance or the washer may be to full, it also can do this when it is off level other then that the tub may need to be adjusted by an appliance personal. I hope you get this problem fixed.

My Westinghouse lt908s washing machine has started bundling clothes up and knocking sides of machine. Even after opening lid and redistributing load evenly it keeps spinning then bundles up load and knocks...


May be a problem with agitator gear box,open on wash cycle and use screwdriver to by pass cut off switch by pushing screwdriver down on little switch that is located where tab on lid is.If agitator is traveling at too much of a rotation that may be cause,also agitator mat be lose if you can grab and move up and down.Then remove cap on top of agitator and tighten bolt,if lose if not agitator may need to be replaced!

Why does my washing machine have a knocking sound when spinning?


  • Try readjusting the clothes inside the washer tub and distribute them more evenly. When one side of the washer has more weight than one side and then is soaked with water it weighs that side of the tub down more and when it spins the tub bangs the side of the washer.
  • Get a level and make sure you plum it front to back and side to side to make sure it is nice and level.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Knocking noise on spin cycle


My machine did the same thing, I found it to be the heater element in the air box had come loose inside the casing and was hitting the sides of the air box. Removed air box from machine and resecured the element now all ok

Noisy spin dryer


make sure the washer is level.there's locking nut for each legs sometimes thy become loose and the unit becomes unlevelled after a while. Level the unit side to side and front to back and relock the nuts by tightning it against the bottom frame. If thats not the problem,run it on spin only with no load and see if it would do the same if it does'nt then your problem could just be improper loading. make sure you have enough load to cover the drum when it spins.Other wise you may have shock/spring problem but very unlikely
