How to change the shock absorbers in a bosch washer

I need to replace these parts and the drawing that came with the new part shows drilling one side of the shock holder, knocking out the existing pin and replacing it with the new metal pin in the kit. The pictyre looks like I should use a 13.5mm drill bit and drill to a depth of 30 mm . Is this correct? The instructions only show pictures, there is no words.

SOURCE: Bit stuck in Bosch PS20 keyless chuck

These units have only been out for a short while and most are on warranty. Take it to a Bosch Service center in your area and they will replace the front of the unit. Unfortunatly this is a problem with this type of unit. The bit will deform slightly from the impacting action and lock itself in the chuck.

After 23 years of good service the drum has fallen off at one side. Is it worth fixing or buy a new one?


HAS SHOCK ABSORBERS WHEN THEY GO BAD ONE SIDE CAN LEAN ALSO CHECK FOR BAD OR LOOSE BALANCE WEIGHT. LOCATED NEAR THE MOTOR.

All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. The shock absorbers or struts are attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and you will need to remove the front panel or the rear panel to access them. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle and if the symptom is not corrected, can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.

Washer Problems Washer noise when spinning


With the growing popularity of front load washers comes a whole different set of washer problems then what was experience with the older top load washers. Front load washers are built quite a bit differently and have many different parts than top load machines.

One of the most common problems with front load washers is that the shock absorbers that hold the tub in place can break. These shock absorbers steady the tub during the wash and spin cycles. It is when the spin is happening that they take the worst beating. It is also during the spin cycle that the breakage will be most evident. If your load is even a little bit out of balance and the shocks are broken, you machine may dance all over the floor and sound like an airplane about to take off. The tub will flounder around uncontrollably and the clothing will come out very wet because of the tubs inability to maintain the spin speed needed to wring out the water.

To see if your machine has broken shock absorbers, remove the bottom cover and look in. About halfway back on either side will be a small cylinder that moves in and out to absorb the movement of the tub. Often the loop that has a pin through it to secure it to the machine will be broken. Sometimes there will be no visible damage, but if you unhook one end of the shock, the slide movement will be very easy and there will be no resistance. The shock should be in and out fairly hard; this is what holds and steady’s the tub of the machine.

The parts are easy to find online by doing a search for “appliance parts” and then entering your model number in the box provided by most websites. The replacement is fairly easy and can be done by most people with a bit of patience and a few hand tools.

Dear Sir, How do you change an 87 mitsubishi mighty max front shocks without any compression equipment? Please email me at brad8141@hotmail.com. Is there a book with instructions regarding this...


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Support the vehicle safely on jackstands. Support it at a height which will allow sufficient room to reach the upper shock absorber mount.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Remove the upper shock nut, washer and bushing.
  4. Remove the lower mounting bolt(s) and remove the shock from the vehicle.
  5. Install the shock absorber in the vehicle and loosely tighten the upper shock absorber nut. Make sure the install the bushings and washers before installing the upper nut.
  6. For 4WD vehicles, install the shock absorber so that the white paint mark at the lower side of the shock absorber faces the outer side of the vehicle. Install the lower shock absorber bolt(s). On 1992-95 Montero torsion bar suspensions, tighten the single lower mounting bolt and nut to 65-76 ft. lbs. (88-103 Nm). On all other vehicles (whether torsion bar or coil spring suspensions), the two lower shock absorber mounting bolts should be tightened only to 7-10 ft. lbs. (9-14 Nm). Fig. 1: Install the shock absorber so that the white mark faces toward the outside of the vehicle - 4WD vehicles, except 1992-95 Monteros 86668006.gif
    Fig. 2: Install the bushings, washers and nuts in the order shown - except 1992-95 Monteros 86668007.gif

  7. On 1992-95 Monteros, tighten the shock absorber installation nut so that the dimensions shown in the illustration ( A and B) are at the standard values. These standard values are: A - 0.04-0.08 in. (1-2mm), B - 0.06-0.10 in. (1.5-2.5mm). WARNING
    When tightening the nut, be careful not to bend the stud pin of the washer assembly.
  8. On all other vehicles, once the lower mounting bolt(s) are tightened, tighten the upper shock absorber mounting nut all the way to the end of the thread on the shock absorber stud, then tighten the locking nut to 9-13 ft. lbs. (12-18 Nm).
  9. Install the wheel.
  10. Lower the vehicle to the ground. Fig. 3: When installing the upper shock nuts on 1992-95 Monteros, make sure measurement A is 0.04-0.08 in. (1-2mm) 86668008.gif
    Fig. 4: When installing the upper shock assembly, make sure its components are positioned as shown - 1992-95 Monteros 86668009.gif

What is service ride control


Service Ride Control means one or some of your shocks or struts are worn and may need replacing. The price for new ones is not cheap,

My washer is shaking alot and makes unreal noise. Like it is out of balance


On front load washers, it is very important that the washer be truly level and that all four (adjustable) feet are screwed down so the whole washer absolutely does not rock forward to back or side to side.
The floor needs to be solid and not "deflect" when you walk on it.
But if the above items do not solve the problem, then it is almost certain that one or both of the shock absorbers has broken. They can be seen under the wash tub but removing the front kick plate and looking in. They look like tiny car shock absorber / struts. Grab one and push / pull or run a load with the cover off and watch as the washer spins up.
The shocks are not incredibly hard to replace yourself if you are inclined and the instructions provided with the replacement parts are pretty clear.
There are other possible failures besides the shocks, including the upper springs and a failing main bearing, but that is rare on newer model washers.
Note that the most common cause of shock or spring failures is when the washer is relocated and the wash drum is not locked down per the instructions provided with the washer.
Please report back what you find, OK?
