Question about Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC Front Load Washer
Why does my washer shake soooo much during the spin cycle. Now, I understand these washers shake, but this is out of control. So much, that it is very obvious that the machine is unbalanced and will not even go up to full speed for the spin cycle. The machine is level and I even anchored it to the cement floor and it doesn't help. are there adjustments I can do inside?
Take out the four "shipping\travel" bolts in the back of the machine. Read the manual- it will tell you how to do this. John

Open the rear to see if any springs/shocks are loose or damaged, change. Disconnect wall socket first. Then see that your machine is balanced level by adjusting the front 2 legs and locking the nuts; the rear legs are not adjustable. A slight shaking of the machine while unplugged can make it shake more during the spin. You don't anchor machines nor over-load them. A well adjusted washer never shakes.

One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.
The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.
You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.
If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.
