Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

I purchased a Bosch wash machine a couple of years ago from a local dealer. I had trouble right away when the washer spins it vibrates and makes a lot of noise. I contacted the dealer right away and then sent a service man out to look at it and balance it. They have been contacted several times regarding this issue and they have told me that front load washers just do this. I have visited with several others that have front load washers and there's are quiet and don't move all over the place when they are spinning. I now have water that just sits right inside the door. There is a bedroom directly below this wash machine and the light fixture doesn't work correctly anymore because the ceiling shakes so bad everytime it spins. I am VERY VERY frustrated with this and would like to know what I can do. I don't even want this wash machine anymore. I feel I have a lemon and feel that it should be taken care of. The dealer makes up a different excuse everytime I talk to him regarding why this moves all over while it spins, it vibrates and is noisy. He has used the excuse that it's the floor, sometimes he tells me this happens in newer home, sometimes he tells me it happens in older homes. What can I do?

You can't tight up the tub. You should replace the damper pads that located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Goog luck !

look under the rubber flap in front did anything get under the tub

SOURCE: Washer LG Model WD-8013F Noisy & vibrates badfly when spinning

Hi,
I had same problem, the bowl is supported by (2) large springs from the top & two telescoping shock absorbers underneath.
I inverted the machine, found a large hollow retaining plastic bolt had falled out of the shock absorber,causing the bowl to be out of balance & the drive belt to be missaligned.
I reinstated the plastic retaining pin/bolt then tried the machine again.
Now the damn thing refuses to wash or spin.
I'm not happy.

Try this for re-setting the balancing mechanism:
With the washer empty, tip tip it forward so that it is just sitting on the front feet. Hold it there for a few seconds, then gently lower the back down. (Often there is a mechanism in the back feet that automatically levels it for you--if this doesn't work, check that the back feet are not damaged.)

Out of balance drum WM2277HW?


More than likely it did not get reinstalled right after the move. All four of the leveling legs must be firmly touching the floor. If one is even the thickness of a piece of paper off the floor it will start to rock during spin and the problem just amplifies itself. Make sure it's perfectly level and that all the feet are firmly on the floor.
