SOURCE: when washer filling, water supply pipes begin to vibrate

Your Tap is turned on to far. If you turn it down slowly the noise will stop.

My guess is that it is a plastic line...the only way that this can be controlled completely is go to copper lines, but sometimes using clamps close to the area where it is viberating will help some.

Basic Washer Installation Advice


Here are some installation tips for washing machines. This is meant to provide BASIC guidance and not meant to deviate from any installation criteria that may come with your washer. Follow your manufacturer’s recommendations if they differ from those outlined here:

- Water pressure requirements should be a minimum of 10-25 psi to prevent fill valve leaks and proper fill rates. A minimum pressure is required to keep the fill valves closed when not in the process of filling. If the water pressure is too low, you may experience symptoms of water filling in the wash tub when not in use and/or longer fill times.

- The drain line should be capable of handing 17 gallons of water per minute. If not, you could experience overflows from the standpipe during the drain cycle.

- The standpipe should be 2 inches in diameter, be a minimum of 34” from the floor to prevent siphoning, and should not exceed 72 inches in height. DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe, or place the drain hose too far down into the pipe. This can also cause siphoning. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient when placing the drain line into the standpipe.

- The operating temperature for the washer should be above 60 degrees F. It is not safe to place a washer in an environment where it is allowed to freeze. Residual water in the drain lines, fill hoses and pumps could freeze and damage the washer. This is something to consider when placing a washer in a location outside the home like a garage.

- The drain hose length must not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive drain hose length can cause drain problems and back wash.

- When leveling, make sure the washer is level SIDE-TO-SIDE and FRONT-TO-BACK, and that you place the washer on a FIRM foundation. Weak flooring is the number cause of washer vibration and out-of-balance problems. If the flooring flexes when the washer is in the spin cycle, the washer will vibrate, no matter if it is level or not (this is particularly a problem with front loaders). If you do not have an alternative, the flooring can be firmed up by placing a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood (at least ¾ inch thickness) under the washer to help distribute the weight more evenly.

I hope these tips are informative and help prevent some of the more common washer problems that can easily be remedied by double checking your installation.

There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...


if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this helps.next time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

The washer is slow to fill and makes a lot of vibrating noise through the pipes, especially hot water. Also the washer will fill with water when it is not operating. New water hoses have been...


You need to replace the water inlet valve. It's where the water hose connects to the washer. It's clogged and leaking because it doesn't seal when it's off because of sediment in the water line. It may fix it if you clean it out along with the wire strainer in the ends of the hose.

The water line vibrates and makes noise when using it. It sounds like there's air in the line.


Does it make noises when anything else in the house uses water?(sinks, toilets filling up?)
If not the pull the fridge out and make sure water line clamp was installed. It will be a small clamp near the bottom of the fridge on tha same side the line comes into the back of it.
Is there a water filter that has been replaced recently?
