VIBRATION AND SHAKING DURING SPIN
Washer must be level and installed on a solid floor to prevent vibration and shaking during spin
Serious problems will require serious attention. Washer repair should only be performed by a qualified service technician. The washer combines water and electricity to operate so only a trained professional should service the appliance.

I definitely agree that washer repair should only be performed by a qualified service technician. I’m glad you explain that part of this is because it uses both water and electricity in its operation. This can be a dangerous thing to try to repair on your own, so it’s much safer and smarter to hire an appliance repairman!

My washing machine hasn’t been spinning as good as it usually does, and I don’t like it too much. I didn’t know that it could be so many different things! I’ll be sure to get a professional to see if they can diagnose it for me.

It is good to know that one should check fill hoses when it comes to a leaky washer. I did not know that this water could also be coming from a damaged water inlet fill valve. Calling for professional help would be the best option when it comes to appliance repair. Ideally, it would be best to hire someone with quality equipment and tools.
