Front loader washing machine shaking/vibrations

February 10, 2013

I've been struggling with some shaking/vibration problems with my Whirlpool Duet front loader washing machine. I believe the main problem is the floor isn't sturdy enough as it tends to shake quite a bit, especially during the high spin cycle, but I'm wondering if there may also be a problem with the washer itself.

Here's a video I've filmed. Some washes the vibrations are worse with it sounding and reacting like a jack hammer:

The washing machine is perfectly level and all four feet are firmly planted to the floor. It doesn't rock at all when you push on the four corners, so it's either a problem with the washer or the floor or a combination.

Thanks for any help.
