When I received my machine, it was already out of the box and the four hexnut screws were tampered. How do I know whether the spacers were removed? Were they an internal items or external. THanks.
Next, what is the best way to balance the machine, I am not having much luck especially when the unit is tightly in a closet space and hard to reach the back levering machinism.
The Malber has spacers but does not have a lever in the back so I am not sure what brand of machine you have. If it is the Malber, the spacers in the back are internal and need to be removed. They can be accessed by removing the hex screws and then removing the back panel. The spacers should fall to the bottom of the machine when the hex screws are removed. They can then be retrieved easily with the back panel removed. Be careful reaching into the back of the machine as there are many sharp edges in there.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France, NO!
(If you haven't already, try my guidance notes on leveling, please!)
I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both! So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same. 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 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 suspension is malfunctioning.
Hi, I believe the cause of your washing machine's "rocking" problem is the result of the machine not being properly balanced (on all four legs). Let me explain. On the bottom of your washer and dryer, are four "adjustable" legs. These legs screw up or screw down. If you adjust these four legs so that the washer is perfectly square with your floor, your rocking problem will go away. This should do the trick. Good Luck!
Hi, First check whether the cabinet is in good condition If it is ok means you are suppose to change the four springs since these four springs balance the unit one might have got loosen so it is advicable to replace the four sprins
You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.
The load of clothing/towels is out of balance.. you can readjust by hand. Also check the washer feet. they are on screws and you can adjust them with a wrench to relevel the machine and for all four legs to be in contact with the floor... that should help alot... KEN
depends some modles have 2 clips under the front left and right you stick your putty knife in there and pull the console up, also there could be end caps get a screw driver and pop them off then there will be 2 screws remove them. Then some models have 2 screws directly behing the consol remove them pull consol forward and up. Once you have got the consol situated there are 2 copper brakets push down and out with your screw driver this will release the cabinet soyou can replace the lid switch
if your machine is new, and you self installed it, you forgot to remove the shipping bolt, for front load-check the back there are four long screw sometime three depending on the brand , for top load tilt ur unit take a look on the bottom- in the middle again depending on the brand they use a single bolt to hold the tub during transporting- remove it, slide out the spacer it will be ok. now if your unit is some years back already you have your problem with its transmission or gearcase for top loader-quite difficult to fix it sir, or suspension mechanism and bearing on front loader sir- u have to replace it or call a qualified service tech - happy washing soon sir
take the lid off the spacers should be at the back but when u undue the big hex screws at the back they usually fall out anyway now easiest way to balance is by just using the front adjusters and not the back make slight adjustment on each leg just so you stop swaying from side to side you dont make the washer level level you need it to sloop slightly backwards anyway to stop water from coming out of the soap drawer another thing i do when leveling a washer is once u turn 1 leg with 1 hand hold the washer by the top so u stop it from rocking now adjust the other leg up until that 1 hits the floor and turn once more now try and rock it if it doesnt move from side to side now your done dont adjust the back legs more than likely it doesnt have legs at the back most have wheels on the back now anyway m8
