How do you fix an unbalanced drum on a washing machine?
How do you balance a washing machine drum? Start by placing a spirit leveler on top of the washer or worktop (this has to be a flat surface), in a way that it points left to right. Then proceed to loosen the locknuts, which are placed under the machine’s legs, and adjust them by turning them counterclockwise.
Why is my top load washer shaking violently? Your washing machine needs to stand level and balanced on its feet to function properly. An unbalanced appliance will vibrate and shake during operation. Try rocking the appliance from side to side or back and forth. If it’s rocking a lot, your flooring or appliance’s feet may be uneven.
How do I know if my washer drum is off balance? If a top load washer’s tub begins to bang against the sides of the washer when the spin cycle begins (before reaching top speed), this indicates a likely unbalanced load. Just pause the cycle and arrange the clothes in the basket and try again.
