Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Bosch WFL2060 I am a repair tech that has been stumped. I looked at this washer, its dead bubble level, leveling legs are locked in. The upper support springs are fine. The lower support struts are ok. I see no sign that the balance weight is loose or off. I am out of things to look for. What do you think?

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

How to level Kenmore side by side model 596.50004100?

Using a bullet level, placed on top, side to side, adjust the leveling legs front and rear so that the unit places the bubble in the exact middle. Then, placing the level front to back, adjust the front only leveling legs to where the bubble in the level is only half showing in the middle. This will allow the doors to close by themselves.

Our new Bosch avantixx is not stable when spinning on our wooden floor, it moves violently all over the place! Any suggestions?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,


It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine (sorry about my UK spelling!) and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

Every time my machine starts to spin faster it starts making a very loud banging noise

One cause could be that the washer is not levelled evenly on all sides. You can get yourself a water level" u get all shapes & sizes" preferably a small circular one place it on top of the washer make sure it is centred, then level or balance the washer. Most washers have a screw type stands where you can raise or lower it functions just like a screw.

Before you start with the legs, when water level placed on the washer, look to see where the bubble is? If it is in the centre then your washer is levelled, indicating that something is loose in the washer, but 9 out of 10 the washer is not levelled.

Can't keep washer level

as far as leveling goes once leveling legs have been set,you can lock them in place by turning the nut on leg itself counter clockwise until its secure to top of leg,however if the unit is shaking during spin cycle and is located in upper floor laundry setting,chances are the floor is weak,and cannot withstand downward force generated during final spin...add an absorption pad under unit to assist/alleive the issue

Kenmore Elite HE5t washer needs leveling. Legs are level to the floor

the legs have a lock nut that you must loosen to make the leg go up/down. once you have it where you want it, tighten the lock nut back up at the top.

Washer spins so hard, washer moves across floor

If the washer is old, the snubber pads will need replacing and greasing. This requires special tools for disassembly to the point where one can perform the required service.

If the washer is less than a few years old, the issue is simple leveling.

Look under the front edge of the washer and locate the leveling legs and locking nuts. Using a crescent wrench, free the locking nuts and re-level the washer, re-tightening the locking nuts.

Roper washer ras7133kq0 walks all over when spinning. it is do i get it apart and what do i do to fix it.

You say that the machine is level, but sometimes using a level isn't enough. Each leg of the machine must bear 25% of the weight/force. The machine generates extreme centrifugal force when spinning. I have used a level and had the bubble perfect, but still had the machine walk all over. I would make some adjustments on the supports before I tore into the washer looking for other possible problems. Hope this helped and best wishes.
