Is it normal for a washing machine to shake?
The nature of washer cycles means a small amount of shaking is to be expected. Shaking can be particularly noticeable during the spin cycle, as clothes are moved rapidly to remove water prior to drying.
However, a washing machine that is jumping or “walking” across the floor can indicate a problem. When the appliance is properly installed and used in accordance with the owner’s manual, excessive shaking may be your sign to inspect the washer or speak with a technician.
