Either too much or too little laundry can cause the washer’s drum to be unbalanced. Putting too many items in the washer and overloading it can cause the issue. Removing a few items should resolve the error code. As mentioned above, large, heavy items are also often responsible for the UR code.
Can an unbalanced washer be fixed?
If you determine that the washer is unbalanced, the washer’s feet can be adjusted to balance the washer. Depending on the type of washer, it may have feet at the back that self-adjust when the front feet are adjusted.
How do I balance my Samsung top loader?

- Press START/PAUSE to run the Calibration cycle.
- The drum will rotate clockwise and counterclockwise for about 3 minutes.
Why does my Samsung washing machine shake violently?
This can happen when the four washing machine legs are not all making secure contact with the ground, or if a large bulky item or huge amount of laundry is in the washing machine. If you just got your front load washer, but didn’t remove the shipping bolts, then it will shake a lot.
