If you have noticed that your washing
machine makes a lot of noise banging and shaking when it is spinning,
you have likely wondered how serious this issue is. The answer is
that it depends on the specifics of when and how it is spinning. Keep
reading for tips on how to fix this issue yourself or call American Appliance Repair
at 800-640-9934 for washing
machine repair and maintenance.
There Are Many Reasons a Washing Machine May
Shake and Bang While It is Spinning
The issue could be as simple wobbly
feet or it could be a complex drum imbalance. If it is a drum
imbalance, you or your local
appliance repair company would need to open up the housing and
repair the issue. If it is an issue with the feet, you can likely fix
This is true even if you are not
particularly handy. Why? Because the feet of most washers are easy to
adjust. Many floors are not level – especially in areas in which
washing machines end up getting installed – and this can lead to
issues. If you can move your washer by pushing on one of its corners,
then the issue is likely with the feet of your washer.
Test Whether Your Washer is Level and Balance It
Grab your bubble level and put it on
top of your washing machine on a surface that should be flat. If you
see the bubble anywhere but in the center, twist the feet on your
washer until your level’s bubble is centered. Do this for all four
sides on top of your washer until they are all level. If you are
still dealing with shaking and banging after you have done this, then
the fact that your washer’s feet weren’t level was just a tiny
part of a bigger problem.
Other Issues That May Require Help from the Pros
On the other
hand, you may need the professionals to come out and help. If
balancing doesn’t help then it may be an issue with the wiring, the
drum, or internal water lines. It may be that your washing machine is
older and the fix will be more than it is worth and we recommend
installation. No matter what the fix is, you can count on us to help.
