All washer machines experience centrifugal forces during the spinning and agitation cycles. The centrifugal forces tend to pull the washing machine away. There should be adequate opposing force to balance this force. Shaking may arise from many factors and they are normally easy to solve. Centrifugal forces and unbalanced load are among some of the major factors for shaking.

  1. 1 Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet. Check if all the feet of the washing machine are touching the floor firmly. You can test it by pressing all four corners and sides one by one. If one of the sides tilts when you press, that side is not contacting the floor. If feasible, move the washer to a level floor. Also, you can use cushions made of rubber or wood to make the washer sit firmly on the floor.
  2. 2 Most of the washing machine legs have rubber caps and locking nuts. Check if they are in place properly. If they are missing or defective, buy new ones and install them correctly.
  3. 3 Some washing machines have adjustable feet. Adjust them to level all the feet. After you complete the adjustment, the top of the washer machine should be perfectly horizontal. You can use a leveling device to do this. Lowes or Home Depot carries different types of leveling devices.
  4. 4 Start the washing machine and inspect if the problem persists. If the washer is still shaking, call a qualified appliance repair technician to fix the problem.
  5. 5 Repair it free: Find if you have warranty for your washing machine. If you bought your cloth washer within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your washing machine fixed.
