Depending on the load, our washer has some vibration and some times hardly none at all. However, it seems the vibration is getting worse with age. Could this be because the shocks are wearing out (as would happen on a vehicle)? if this is the case and they need to be replaced, how do you get the front panel off to replace the front two? You can get to the rear ones fairly easy by removing the rear panel. Any help would be appreciated.
ANSWER Hello Sonny,
You would want to check to make sure that the unit is level and check the rubber feet on the base of the unit. These can cause vibrations. If these check ok then the shocks could be faulty. The way to check is to push down on the tub and see if it pops right back up. If it does not then the shocks are bad. Check to make sure that it is not the pump that is causing vibration. A loose impeller will cause vibration.
