Everyone who has experienced such a problem as a shaky washer or dryer understands that if the appliance vibrates excessively during spinning, nothing good can be expected. At a minimum, loud sounds annoy households and neighbors, at a maximum - common scenario indicates that some kind of malfunction has occurred. Strong vibration is a sign of breakdown. It is much more important to understand the causes and eliminate them before more serious problems arise. If your combo washer/dryer has served faithfully for more than one year, and suddenly began to vibrate, perhaps the problem is in overloading. When overloading the drum, it takes more energy to spin. We recommend stopping the cycle and dividing the linen into two portions. Then, you are able to restart the spin cycle again. But if everything is in order with the level of the appliance and the amount of clothes, then, unfortunately, we are talking about some kind of malfunction. Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counterbalance spring. This washer is equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration. The springs can be replaced but before purchasing the spring check to see if the place the spring attaches is OK. Sometimes the frame where the spring attaches has rusted out, making the repair more difficult and expensive. If the washer has a bad vibration in spin the rear drum with bearing might need to be replaced. On this washer the bearing is not sold separately, the entire rear drum will have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, if this is the problem it is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine. If you’re not able to get the problem resolved with the above troubleshooting tips, have an experienced professional investigate further to resolve the issue with shaking.
