Leveling the feet of the washing machine?

Last Update Date : Mar 23. 2018

How to Level your Washing Machine:





Washing machines are generally required to be levelled properly on an even floor. A washing machine which is placed on an uneven floor will lead to many problems in the functioning of it.



Why you have to level your washer:

● Levelling the washing machine is critical for proper operation.

● A tilted washing machine can cause problems including vibrations, noise and detergent drawer residue.


How to level your washer:

The easiest way to begin the leveling process is as follows:

● Loose the jam nuts.

● Screw the washer legs all the way up in the washing machine chassis.


How to check if your washer is properly levelled:

● Slide or walk your washer into position.

● Try rocking the washer back and forth, and left to right. If the washer rocks, unscrew the appropriate leg until the leg makes contact with the floor. Then, the washer will not rock.

                               Try rocking the washer back and forth, and left to right.

● Place a torpedo level on the top of the washer. It does not matter whether you rock the product back to forth first, or left to right first.

● Level your Washer by turning the leveling legs in or out as necessary. When your Washer is level, tighten the jamb nuts.

Note: Make sure that the shipping bolts are removed.


How to install the washer on a carpet or soft floors:

● If you install your washer on a carpet or other soft floors, you should place the rubber cups under the adjustable leg.

● Before placing the rubber cups, remove the double-sided tapes from the film.

● If the washer is on the pedestal, the rubber cup should be placed underneath the pedestal's legs.


How to level your washing machine by using a pedestal:

● If you are using a pedestal, place the pedestal in the location where the washer will be installed.

● Level the pedestal by using the same procedure as that of the Washer/Dryer.

● Attach the pedestal to the washer, and move the pedestal/washer assembly to the desired location.

● Once the washer and pedestal are in the desired location, re-check the levelling. If necessary, re-level the pedestal/washer assembly in its desired location.


Note: Installation Warranty

● Installation and the issues associated with installation are not covered under manufacturer’s warranty.

● Please make an inquiry to your installer.

● If you installed it by yourself or you would like to have a professional installer install the product, please contact your retailer.



● Note the position of the air bubble on the level. A properly leveled surface looks like this:

[Important Reminders]

Note: The shorter the leg is, the lesser will be Vibration. Please try to minimize the leveling leg length to level the unit. We recommend the length should be shorter than 20mm. Please check the tightness of Jamb Nut.
