The washing machine began to shake so violently that we shut the door in case it went full on [REDACTED] and exploded we often thought it was going to be the day it happened the struts were replaced the software was updated the tub nut was tightened numerous times with [REDACTED] and it still was shaking so violently that now there is a hole in the tub and it leaks all over the floor creating water damage. Below it asked for a incident date and honestly there are too many to even count I have children and a husband who needs his clothes washed I don't have time to wait for a technician to possibly come out or even call me 3 to 5 days from now then make an appointment God knows how long that will take why wouldn't they just allow you to take it in or have it be replaced.
