My wash machine shakes very hard when it is in the spin cycle. The machine is on a level floor. Any suggestions?

Thanks

** Whirlpool wash machine **

Whirlpool has sold several different designs of washers over the years. The only way we can tell which one you're dealing with is if you post the washer's exact model number.

You can find tips for locating the model number identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** shakes very hard when it is in the spin cycle. **

Has it been moved recently?

** The machine is on a level floor. **

There is more required of a washer's flooring than being level. Has it always been in the same location and has it worked properly *in that location* previously?

What type of flooring is it on? Concrete, wooden, maybe an upper house floor???

The model number for my machine is

LSQ9550PW3. The wood floor that the machine sits on has recently been replaced. The machine was working properly in the same place previously.

Thanks

** The model number is LSQ9550PW3 **

That is one of Whirlpool's direct drive washer designs.

** The wood floor that the machine sits on has recently been replaced. **

Just the floor *covering* and nothing structural? But in any case, the washer had to have been moved.

* wash machine shakes very hard when it is in the spin cycle. *

That washer design's suspension system can be disrupted depending on how they're moved. Was it laid down at any time or even titled extremely? If so, the suspension may now be out of place (see the following link) or the suspension pads worn (although just moving the washer shouldn't have caused that).

It could also be possible that the front levelling legs are screwed out too far if they were adjusted after the move or they're locking nuts are not tight up against the cabinet.

It could be that the washer is slipping on the new flooring surface or if it was a 'floating' wood floor that was put in place under the washer, just that could be causing the problem. A washer needs *stable* flooring to operate properly on spin.
