Question about Bosch WFVC3300 Washer
During a spin cycle, the washer started making an odd, but not alarming noise. About 15 seconds later, the glass window shattered (its a front loading machine). Its like it exploded, with TONS of tiny glass shards everywhere. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Is there any sort of recall on this issue? I'm planning on repairing it myself - should i expect any sort of internal damage to the washer, or is it just a matter of vaccuming out the broken glass and replacing the window? Thanks in advance.
Maybe the internal drum was rocking due to an unbalance with the weight of the towels that it has knocked onto the door causing the glass to break. only thing i can think of , glass shouldn't break unless its hit or there is a large amount of temperature change, adding cold water to a hot glass for instance.

SOURCE: Front glass window seems loose
When the machine is spinning, place your hand gently against the glass and check for a vibration. Do not push on the glass.
This is to check and see if the vibration is from the door or from somewhere else.
The front door comes apart. Disassemble the door and check the seal where the glass sits. If this seal is worn or out of place it will allow the glass to rattle against the rear panel.

not long. have a Bosch Axiss WFL 2060. It started making buzzing noises starting about a year ago and I ignored them. It failed and I am replacing either the motor or/and more things. If ur a DIY its definitely less expensive than a new machine. dwkendall sends
