Whirlpool Duet washer front load


were the transport screws/bolts removed from the back of the unit before operating it?

Those screws hold the drum so it won't bounce around in shipping. If they are not removed, there is no suspension system for the drum to absorb the imbalance and you get a real exciting spin cycle.

also, is the washer on a pedastal? what kind of floor (wood, concrete)

Whirlpool Duet washer front load


front load washers will "test" a floor, floor needs to be very solid , no bounce or give, otherwise you will have a washer that vibrates, walks and jumps around.
