I have got my GE front loader washer level. It still makes noises like it not level at all during high speed spin.

I know putting washer on a pedistal is not helpful.

Are there wear parts inside that could be causing this?

Lift the cover and displace the basket by pushing with your hand, repeat this at each 45 degrees for all 360 degrees, and if the displacement is not the same there may be something obstructing it, like a packing block.

If you think it is bearings like in the video. check for the price of parts first, the last one I took apart the bearing prices were almost as much as a new machine.

The GE repairman came to take a look. He concluded there was nothing worn. He suggested to run larger loads. Said it works better when the loads are larger.

Said new models have a adoptive mechanism to better handle unbalance loads during spin.

Anyone else have less issues with front loader with larger loads?
