Shipping Rod Left in Washer

The cap came off of the shipping rod that is inserted in the lower right side of the washer and is about 2 inches inside. The rod is about two feet long. I can reach it with long nose pliers but it doesn't pull out. Any suggestions on how to remove it?

It doesn't look like a motor problem !!! It seems like an unbalanced tub issue. The machin has suspension dampers and suspension rods, and it's look like one of them was damaged or "run away" from its location during machin's movement. Goog luck !!

There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

How do I take the bleach dispenser out of my top load washing machine.LG WT5001CW

Hello. The bleach dispenser cover(the part you see) un-snaps and lifts out revealing the dispenser assembly beneath. The part number for the cover is MBL62061401 and the dispenser assembly is ACZ72910401. Why are you taking it out? If there is some leakage down the front of the machine, make sure the washer is VERY level as the basket/tub ring will lean towards the side that is lower. Check the suspension rods for wear by placing your hands on the right and left side of the tub ring(the white circular cover over the spin basket)and shove smartly downward and let go. The suspension rods should grab going down and pull coming up--no "hobby horse" wiggling/bouncy movement at all. They act just like shocks on a car--if you push down, the car will come up and immediately settle. The suspension rod part number is 4902FA1665W and you will need to change all four if any corner is worn. **To access the rods and dispenser assembly, you must use a 2 inch putty knife, insert is approx 3-4 inches(use a flashlight to help you see) from the right and left side *front*. There are 2 steel clips that hold the top cover tightly to the washer frame. You have to push them in while pulling the top cover towards you and up. Place your hand inside the lid and grab the top cover tightly at the front right and left sides--the clips can be really tight and difficult to get released so be patient. The top cover will hinge up from the back. Be careful--some models have screws at the *back* corners of the top cover that have to be removed. I hope I helped you!

Where are the shipping blocks located

    • 1 Locate the four hole plugs at the back of the washer. Pry the plugs out of the holes with a slotted screwdriver.
    • 2 Wrap the drain hose around left side of the back of the washer. Place two P-clamps around the hose near the bottom and top left-side holes.
    • 3 Insert a spacer into each of the holes located at the back of the washer. At the bottom and top left-side holes, guide the spacer through the holes in the P-clamps.
    • 4 Insert the bolts through the holes in the middle of the spacers. Use a socket wrench to tighten the bolts.

Handle does not catch

v:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} A lot of locking problems are just poor lubrication so before you start opening parts, get a can of Silicon Spray (Bugaboo use to include a can in their maintenance kit). Any hardware or Gas Station will sell it. Don\'t use Oil based lubricants like WD40 the main reason being they stain fabrics and attract dirt. Remove the seat unit and lay the stroller on its side faulty hub down. Now look on the inside edge of your handle where it joins the plastic hub, you\'ll see two slots in the plastic hub and a wire rod in the lower slot. Spray into this slot so lubricant flows down inside the hub. Now wipe off excess with a paper towel and work the release button a few times. If you are lucky your handle now works. No luck? Then we have to see if the fault is in the hub or the release button. Press or pull the release button while watching the wire rod in the lower slot. It should move 6 to 8 mm. If there is a resistance to this, the hub is at fault. If the rod seems to move freely but the hubs remained locked try pulling the rod a bit further up with a small pair of pliers. If this releases the hub you have a release button fault. If the hub is still locked the fault is in the hub. Bugaboo handle issues can be caused by faults in either the release buttons or the hubs and the first job is to try and diagnose the part causing the fault. I\'ll describe how the locks work then go into more detail on each part. Two aluminum lock pins sit in channels of the inner hub and extend into pockets in the outer hub, locking the hub. These lock pins are retracted by the rotation of a plastic disk connected to the ends of the lock pins by two small plastic pins on the disk. A wire rod clips into the disk and runs up the handle to the release buttons. There are two versions of the release button. The older pull up knob type (Gen 1) and the newer rocker button type (Gen 2). Both versions pull up the wire rod, the Gen 1 rod clips into a black plastic block in the handle and the release knob screws in to it. The (Gen 2) has a rocker button that moves the rod up via a white plastic block clamped to the wire rod by two small Alan/hex screws. A compression spring sits above the plastic blocks of both versions held by the caps where the upper handle comes out. The spring keeps the downward locked position until upward moment from the release buttons unlocks it. Check that the cap is fixed down. If not that is most likely your problem. If you are missing a spring your local hardware shop can find something similar. It does not have to be exact but if using a different spring change both sides so both sides have the same \'feel\'. clip_image002.jpg . Release Button Repair The old pull up release button (Gen 1) rarely fails which is fortunate, as you have to drill out the rivets in the handle holding the hubs to pull it out. The (Gen2) is easier to get to which is fortunate as it does fail and can be your problem the most common fault being the two screws holding the rod coming loose. From the brake (left) side remove the two Phillips screws and the inner half of the assembly will come off rocker button attached. The brake lever, inner brake release button and spring will be loose so carefully place aside in a small container till ready to reassemble. The right side has no screws it just clips together. Use a small flat blade screwdriver to pop the joints on the front and back edges, the inner plate with rocker button attached will come free. There is a metal plate sitting over the hole the rod is in. Take time to remember how it fits in the hole and the angle you take it out. This will make putting it back much easier. The wire rod runs though a white plastic block clamped by an inner metal block with two inset hex screws. The hex key is 0.05 inches or a 99-20 if you have Xcelite hex drivers. Adjust the rod by pulling a few mm though the block and relocking. Don\'t take up any more then required to unlock the hub other wise the locking rods won\'t fully engage in the hubs when locked. Hub Repair 1/. Remove the capped star lock washer. Use a small painters knife to protect the plastic first hammer the knife in between the dome and the plastic, then hammer a large flat blade screwdriver in between the dome and the knife. Work from one side than the other to "walk" the dome up and off the shaft. There may be a second plain star washer under the Dome you can use a small screwdriver to "walk" that up and off too.
Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so your moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side. The hubs and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable the locking rods are interchangeable. Bugaboo designate the side with the brake lever as left, the Bugaboo parts will have an "L" after their serial numbers. 2/. Check the hubs for wear. If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position. You can fix this by cutting a 20 mm section of a 3 to 4 mm house nail drilling a hole the same as the nail in the damage hub wall next to the pin then epoxy it in. clip_image014.jpg3/. There are three parts in the hub, a plastic disk and two aluminum-locking rods. The disk has two plastic pins that move the locking rods in and out of cannels in the inner hub. Why Bugaboo use plastic for this vital component is a mystery to me? If you need to repair the disk you can try drilling out the pin stumps and using a cut down 4 mm cap bolt. clip_image020.jpgclip_image022.jpgOr (my preferred choice) have a new disk fabricated that will last a lifetime. The locking rods if broken can only be replaced, either by ones salvaged from another frame or new laser cut or 3D printed copies. I prefer the copies as they have been cut / printed from stainless steel. I sell both metal $30.00 and plastic $10.00 disks, and the stainless steel locking rods $16.00 each direct from <> Shipping is only $6.00 to USA $9.50 EU and $20.00 for the rest of us 8-( If you are in Australia or New Zealand contact me directly for better shipping direct from New Zealand 3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. If wire rods seem to be in the incorrect position try pulling the handle up to it\'s full extension, if that does not work loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws (note I\'m now finding some frames now have pop rivets, drill them out and replace with self tappers) and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the silicon grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all is working well fit the new capped star lock on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern. Repeat operation on the other side if necessary. Once repaired, I can\'t empha enough, the need to keep Bugaboo hubs well lubricated. They have to endure incredible forces from the handle. To give you some idea, a crow bar of the same length can pull six-inch nails out of hard wood! If you have further questions or require other parts you can contact me

Kenmore Elite Oasis is making a loud banging noise during spin cycle. Also just noticed a small amount of water under the washer. All other cycles appear to be working fine.

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.

My new Ge washer is making loud and vibrating noises while spinning. the washer does not seem to be off balance.

Who installed this? Sounds like they didnt remove the shipping rod located on back of machine. If so, refer to instruction manual for how to remove rod. Usually just pulls out.

We have finally resolved our problem thanks to annetipu's note about someone mentioning a rod or pin that had to be removed. On the Frigidaire website, you will find the following:

14. Vibrating sounds. Tumble action washers: Shipping bolts or braces are still in the washer.

Remove 3 shipping bolts, 3 yellow spacers and 3 metal "P" clamps from the back of the washer. Remove the access panel from the front of the unit and remove 2 yellow shipping braces and large Styrofoam shipping block. Replace the access panel.

This solved our problem. Washer is wonderful now!
