The struts are just turned about 90 degrees and pulled from the rear - make sure you keep these in case the machine is to be moved - they need to be reinstalled

Novotronic washer w1918 jumps violently when transitioning from main wash to rinse 1-2 with 21 minutes to go to end of wash cycle


If the problem is consistent, FIRST check to make your machine is level. Also try cleaning the machine out with no clothes in it using white vinegar on a hot wash. If you're having a problem with high speed spin with NO load in it, it could be shaft/bearing related which would probably be too expensive to fix. Otherwise you could simply just be adding loads incorrectly or overloading it.

New Simpson Top loader washer very noisy/rocking


sounds like you havent undone the transit bolts- theyre on the back of the machine, 2,3 4 maybe five quite large obvious bolts, around the drum but on the back. they are to keep the drum steady while in transit to stop the machine bouncing around in the van - you are unlikely to have damaged it - Undo these bolts - they should be mentioned in the manual-

I left the transit bolts in our "brand new" zanussi washing machine and am afraid to use it as I do not know what damage might have been done.


Highly unlikely any damage will have been done so long as it hasnt been in use for a long time (weeks).

In a front loading washing machine, most of the mechanicals inside are held between springs at the top and dampers at the bottom. The transit bolts are used to minimse how much movement can ocour whilst the machine is in transit as excessive movement could damage the springs/dampers. When they are removed, normal movement of the mechanicals helps keep the machine stable and minmises vibration.

So, the worst that happens when the machine is used with the transit bolts in place is it vibrates alot, and possible moves about.

Remove the bolts as soon as possible and it should be fine.

Brand new washing machine wandering on spin cycle


It sounds like the transit bolts or some of the packing is still in place. Running the machine with these in place can do serious damage.

Washer was jumping and dancing when it got to spin cycle


The only thing to check is to see that some struts behind is taken off. This is inserted to prevent the drum from banging around during transit; refer to your manual. Important.
