Counter Balance Spring

Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. This washer is equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration. The springs can be replaced but before purchasing the spring check to see if the place the spring attaches is OK. Sometimes the frame where the spring attaches has rusted out, making the repair more difficult and expensive.

Balance Ring

If the washer has excessive vibration, the balance ring may have lost its fluid. The balance ring sits on top of the outer tub and helps to counter the force of the spin cycle. If the fluid leaks out of the balance ring the washer tub will be too heavy for the suspension system and cause the machine to vibrate and shake.

Rear Drum with Bearing

If the washer has a bad vibration in spin the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing is not sold separately, the entire rear drum will have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, if this is the problem it is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Leveling Leg

Washer vibration can occur if one of the leveling legs is out of adjustment. Using a carpenters level on the top of the machine, be sure to adjust each leg until the machine is level side to side and front to back. Once the machine is level, tighten the lock nuts, if equipped, on the leveling leg threaded bolt against the body of the washer to keep them from changing height.
