Why does my washing machine go off balance?

How to Repair a Washing Machine that Is Unbalanced

  1. Step 1 - Check Level. Place a straight level on top of the washer to see how much off balance the washing machine is.
  2. Step 2 - Level with Legs. Most washing machines come with adjustable legs in the front and the back.
  3. Step 3 - Tighten Drum.
  4. Step 4 - Keep Large Items Out.

Subsequently, question is, why is my washing machine shaking violently? Possible Cause: Unbalanced Washer The spin speed of an average washing machine is between 600 – 1400RPM. If the washing machine is not balanced, it may shake violently during the spin cycle, causing water to spill on the floor. A washing machine imbalance can be caused by a unit that does not sit level to the ground.

Similarly, it is asked, how do you know if your washer is off balance?

Check that the machine is level across the front, back and sides. A machine that is not level will rock during the spin cycle and cause the machine to be off balance. All four legs should be in firm contact with a solid floor. A carpeted surface can throw this balance off.

Why is my washing machine making a banging noise when spinning?

The most common reason for a noisy washing machine is that you've overloaded the tub or that the clothes in the tub are unevenly distributed. This causes the inner tub of the washing machine to spin unevenly, often hitting against the outer tub and creating the banging noise.
