Vibrating Front Loader

My new Amana Frontloader vibrates too much...My house even shakes when the spin cycle is on. Is there a way to check the drum to see if it is off balance? I have added vibration pads underneath....I love this washing machine, but hate that it rattles the house.

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.

My front loading Electrolux washer is vibrating during the spin cycle--so much so that it shakes the floor. The machine is level and sitting firmly on its drawer

there are 2 shocker on the drum like on a vehicle, these dampen the drum when spinning, when they stick or become damaged in any way the drum moves more. this makes the washer unstable and vibrate. also but more pressure on the springs that keep the drum up, they are easy to change, access to the springs is at the top the sockers are at the bottom.

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the

Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

Major shaking during spin cycle

I have the exact same washing machine with the same problem. It is a poor design and Maytag knows it. We should be entitled to a refund. This was a very expensive machine.

Front loader kenmore M# 41744252500 vibrating/shaking like crazy

I have a 4 417-43142200 that also made a terrible noise when spinning. I found that the counterweight (a piece of curved concrete) had fallen out past the rear pulley and into the bottom of the washer. When the unit was on spin cycle it would wobble and bash against the counterweight. I bolted the counterweight back in place and it was fine. The engineer who designed this part of the machine was not very thoughtful since there is nothing to hold the counterweight captive. If the bolts had been placed further out then the block would have been captive.

Kenmore Elite shaking during spin cycle

Moved a Kenmore Elite and when we put it back in place it vibrates loudly. We tried leveling it and that has not worked. Any ideas?

Out of balance drum WM2277HW?

More than likely it did not get reinstalled right after the move. All four of the leveling legs must be firmly touching the floor. If one is even the thickness of a piece of paper off the floor it will start to rock during spin and the problem just amplifies itself. Make sure it's perfectly level and that all the feet are firmly on the floor.
