• Washing Machine may not be level.
• Front and rear feet must be in fi rm
contact with floor, and washing machine
must be level to operate properly. Jam
nuts must be tight against the bottom of
the cabinet.

flooring is uneven, a 19 mm piece of
plywood under your washing machine
will reduce sound. Do not install washing
machine on a raised wooden platform.
• Load could be unbalanced or too
large.
• Avoid tightly packing the load. Avoid
washing single items. Balance a single item
such as a rug or jean jacket with a few extra
items. Item or load not suitable for selected
cycle.
