Level the Washer

You should level your washer to eliminate unnecessary vibration and noise. Learn how to level the washer yourself without using a level tool.

Level the Front Load Washer

  1. Place your hands on opposite sides of the washer and gently try to rock the washer from corner to corner. If the washer rocks in any direction, turn the front leveling feet clockwise to lower the washer, and counterclockwise to raise it.

  2. Once the washer has been leveled and no more adjustments are needed, tighten the locking nut on each leg to ensure it stays in place. Tighten it all the way flush against the bottom of the washer to lock the leg at its current setting and maximize the length of time before the washer needs to be leveled again.

  3. Run the washer with a small load of laundry to determine if it's level. If the washer rocks, repeat these steps again starting at Step 1.

Level the Top Load Washer

It's a cinch to level the top load washer. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Slide the washer into position.  

  2. Open the lid of the washer, and pour the water into the tub just below the pulsator level.  

  3. If the pulsator is positioned at the center of the water, the washer is level and no further steps are required. If the pulsator is not in the center, proceed to the next step.  

    Note: The pulsator allows water and detergent to go through fabrics efficiently, while providing powerful water action to clean larger and heavier clothes and the gentle water action to clean delicates, ensuring less wear and tear on clothes. 

  4. Adjust the front leveling feet by turning clockwise to raise the washer, and counterclockwise to lower the washer.
