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

I have a brand new Miele washing machine. The program keeps stopping and making three beeps. The display shows fault code F20

Have you checked water supply hose is connected and not kinked, also turned on? If it isn't this then you need to call the warranty number as new machine will be covered.

Top strutt bushing is destroyed and makes a really dry metal on metal sound,especially in reverse and while turning,also dry sound when brakes are applied,,,,rubber bushing all around strutt is broken with...

figure out what year and model you have. call a parts store and buy some quik-struts for your car. if the mounts are bad, so are the struts. quik-struts have a new spring and mount and are already assembled. that is your only real choice, all car parts go bad with age and use. the labor to remove the struts, disassemble them and replace the mounts then reinstall them is more than the cost of quik-struts.

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.

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.
