Vibrating, whirling or spinning sounds:
To maintain a balanced load and maximize the removal of water, the washer steps through increasingly higher spin speeds.
Is your wash load unbalanced?
If the load is not evenly distributed in the basket when spinning begins, the load will create movement in the basket which will result in noise and vibration.
Were you washing bulky items?
The use of the bulky cycle is intended only for oversized, nonabsorbent items such as comforters, pillows or poly-filled jackets. Washing other items in this cycle could create an unbalanced load or poor wash performance.
Is the washer level?
Non Pedestal Installation
When the washer is not on a pedestal, all four washer feet need to be in firm contact with the floor. Try to rock the washer diagonally, from corner to corner, with your hands; adjust the feet if the washer teeters. The lock nuts on all four of the feet should be tightened against the washer cabinet.
See installation instructions for installing the pedestal.

Were the shipping / transfer bolts removed?
All four shipping / transfer bolts must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate the washer.
See your installation instructions for more information on removal of the shipping bolts.
Is the dryer stacked on top of the washer?
If the dryer was not stacked properly, or the stack kit was improperly installed, it could cause a vibration type noise. See your installation instructions for more information about properly stacking these units.
