What causes my frigidaire top load washer to vibrate and make rattling noise during spin cycle


There are springs and bumpers/shocks in the machine that hold the tub. When they break or come loose, the tub wobbles.

What causes our front loading washer to make exceeding loud noise when it enters a spin?


Sounds like a bearing seal is going. The seal has ruptured and grease of seeping out. The loud noise is the bearings rubbing against each other without adequate grease to reduce the friction. Failure will come soon if it is not fixed. The vibration is coming from the friction and possibly damaged ball bearings .

My Haier washing Machine vibrates and makes a very loud vibration noise.


Have you noticed any grease or oil stains on clothes coming out of the washing machine?

In my personal experience, heavy vibration and loud noise during spin cycles has been caused by the bearing being broken and further damage caused by running on a broken bearing. If that is the case it is a costly repair, I had to get a new washing machine.

Washing machines are simple to take a part to a small extent, just remember in what order you took things off if you decide to investigate further your self.

Washer jumps and vibrates and makes extreme noise


Is this a new machine that you purchased and installed yourself? Or is this a machine that has worked properly and is now displaying this problem? If new, it sounds as though you may have not removed the shipping bolts that secure the drum. This would prevent the drum's suspension system from being able to absorb vibration during the spin cycle and cause the vibration to transmit to the machine's outer shell. If the machine is older, then the drum suspension system itself may need repairs.

We just had a new top-load Maytag Washer delivered. When the man finished installing it, he started a wash cycle and left. When it got to the spin cycle there was a lot of vibration. It doesn't...


NO. Have you checked if he installed an anti vibration pads. This is because the high frequency vibrations caused by the spin cycle can cause annoying noise and very serious long term structural damage to you home.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

Problem with fixing the rubber boot on a whirlpool duet washer


The ring where the boot goes seems to have been warped by old age, over loading or over tightening. Best call a pro and see if they have the roller tool that resets the valley for the boot and clamp.

Vibration during spin cycle


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.

Front glass window seems loose


When the machine is spinning, place your hand gently against the glass and check for a vibration. Do not push on the glass.
This is to check and see if the vibration is from the door or from somewhere else.

The front door comes apart. Disassemble the door and check the seal where the glass sits. If this seal is worn or out of place it will allow the glass to rattle against the rear panel. When the machine is spinning, place your hand gently against the glass and check for a vibration. Do not push on the glass
