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.

The drum mounts to a spindle on the back. On these units, it is common for the tripod mounts for this particular design to crack and break. On almost every call I have had for a terrible vibration on these models, this has been the problem. The remedy is to replace the front and rear tub, as well as the basket. It is also recommended that you replace the drain pump at the same time. Most of this should be covered under at least a parts warranty.

SHAKES and VIBRATES - LG Front-loader shakes and vibrates terribly during the spin cycle. It is pounding against the walls and the dryer thats next to it. Its also very loud and it used to be super quiet...


try putting a lighter load in the washer,or you put some foam or something like that at each side of the machine to stop it hitting against the other things next to it.also try adjusting the feet at the bottom of the machine to level it out.

GE Front Load washer shakes whenever any type of load is put in. GE service has been out at least 4 times and say that its fine..perfectly level, etc


All front loaders shake to some extent. It depends on the balance of the load. It is especially evident in the spin cycle due to the high speeds. Also these machines are best placed on a solid cement floor. They can shake an entire house if on the first or second floor and the floors are not well reinforced.

The LG washer vibrates so much that it shakes the dryer. They tell me that it's the hardwood floor, but it's still too much vibration.


If the washer is solid on the floor, and the floor or walls are vibrating, it's a weak floor. This is our biggest problem with most front loaders. Beef up your floor by installing blocking between the floor joists, install another pier, or sister the joists, check on the internet for how to sister joists. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

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.

HAVE A LG TROMM FRONT LOADING WASHING MACHINE THAT SHAKES WHEN SI


has one of the shocks come loose or broken. Open the back of the machine (power-off of course) and on either side of the drum there is a shock absorber. A visual check should tell you if there is a problem.

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 vibrates and moves


You shd check the front legs - they shd be a maximum screwed up, that is the machine shd be tilting forwards. Then you adjust acccording to your floor level. The machine should not shake a bit when off, & you try to shake it with both your hands.

A little vibration is normal when the spin starts. Don't forget to rate me nice............
