Question about Washing Machines

Electolux front loader washer massive vibrations

Our machine stopped and I found some bobby pins in the pump, after cleaning it out, it nows spins for a few seconds and then stops. I did drain all the water, and sprayed WD40 on the shock absorbers (access under the machine) and the springs seems attached in the right place. The machine works well through a normal cycle - without clothes - however it vibrates itself all around the room before switching itself off and then unusable when loaded with normal amount of washing in the drum.

There are 2 large springs supporting the top of the drum, I would say there is a good chance 1 of those has pulled loose, or perhaps cracked or broken the securing hole.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: excessive vibration during spin cycle

Chck to see that all (6) suspension springs are still attached. Check the plastic snubber ring below the mechanism and above the base plate for cracks or contamination.

Washer will not spin out water but turns during wash cycle


Try cleaning out the trap. It is located under the door and can be accessed be removing three screws at the base in the very front of the washer. The trap is white and screws to open. Watch out though, because if the washer is full of water it will come spilling out! With the trap removed, you should also use your finger to feel the opening of the pump to the side. I found a few bobby pins in my pump, and once they were removed it worked again!.

I have a bosch maxx 1000 (wfl2000au/30) machine will not spin. pupm impeller was jammed by a bobby pin. i removed the bobby pin. when machine is on spin cycle only the pump opperates. does not spin at all....


If there is no water in washer, and it will not spin, I suggest you remove the motor, and check the brushes.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, they need replacing.
Hope this helps.

My bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin


Hi
There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

Washer whines any time the agitator is moving or spinning, not while filling, etc. What might this be? I live in the middle of nowhere and my appliance repair man has died of old age. Literally.


We took the housing off the washer and started the machine, albeit carefully, and followed the squeal. Sounded like the water pump thingy in the front. Took that off from the machine but still connected to the hoses and the squeal stopped. Dipped and drained machine, removed water pump thingy and looked inside. Found a really beat up hairpin/bobby pin lodged inside! (I have two teen daughters at home) Removed pin, put back together, and wah-lah, a few hundred dollar miracle, no squeal!

Whirlpool duet washer sport ht - error codes


FYI: The pump cleanout is located on the front of the machine, bottom right corner. There are only three screws holding the bottom cover on. It is easy to get to if you prop it up a few inches off the ground. Just thought this would be helpful as I just did this as of 5 min ago. Should take 10 min. or less.
