Unhappy Washing machine shaking violently on spin!


The loud sound was coming from the washer! Not only that, it was shaking so violently, that it started to travel away towards the wall! The drum seemed to be hitting the body surfaces as it spun, creating that clamour..

We have had this Kenmore 90 plus series washer since 1998 (model 110.28972890), and it has never caused us any grief...nothing close to this has never happened to this washing machine before.

After stopping the unit, I found no sign of water or any fluid around the floor.

Can someone please provide pointers to what is wrong, and if I can attempt to fix it myself ? (I'd say I'm 5/10 on the HDS - Handyman Dexterity Scale)

Would appreciate some expert help!!

Sounds like you had a very unbalanced load...

Or the washing machine is not level.. check and adjust the feet as needed.
