If it did not come with oil none is necessary. They are pre-loaded with pressurized air.

Adora Front Load Washer was stored for 3 years now during the spinning cycle it is uncontrollable and automatically stops the cycle

Your machine has probably got a out of balance sensor fitted to it and when the drum goes out of balance it limits the motor speed to try and balance the load again. If it can't balance the load within so many attempts it will shut the machine off. Either there is to much washing in the machine or when the machine has been moved out of storage some part of the suspension has come off. Check the parts of the suspension on the drum i.e. suspension legs, springs etc. to see if anything has come off.
It may also be possible that some of the suspension may have deteriorated with sitting in storage and may need replacing.

How do I locate the water pump on a Roper top loading washing machine?

Check the four suspension rods suspending the outer tub to the top of the cabinet and the counterweight at the bottom front of the tub. Make sure the four suspension rod assemblies are intact and no sign of damage and the counterweight is in place.

BRand new installation of 1 year old machine we


I am a novice at front loaders but it sounds like it needs new suspension parts, namely springs, sounds like the machine had a hard life before you got it. since its used anyways it cant hurt to take the back off and see and study how it works and how the drums suspension works. you can try to find the springs at an appliance store. Im not sure if you can get springs directly from LG. LG's are a pretty good name brand, probably worth fixing..
good luck!

Maytag Atlantis top load washer started making a loud noise when on spin cycle.

The tub has its own suspension to avoid having the machine walk away from its position. The chassis normally has four suspension points and when one of these gives way, any imbalance can cause the tub to hit the inside of the cabinet. Removing the back panel of the machine and using a good light, the offending suspension part can be found by having someone rock the tub by hand.
In some machines, this suspension is nothing more than some very thick, round rubber doughnuts and are generally not hard to replace.
Any appliance parts store will be able to supply these.

Drum is banging on wash cycle.


I am not too familiar with KitchenAid products as we dont have them in Australia. However most front load washing machines have the same basic set up.

Open the top hatch and also the back panel. Check the suspension springs on top of the drum and also the shock absorbers underneath the drum.

Make sure they are ok and non has come off or broken during the move.

Also make sure that the counter balance bricks or blocks are not brocken or loose.

Good luck.

Just bought new washer and tub in tilted to the right. is this normal?

sure isn't, is the washer a front load? if so you may need to remove the transport bolts they should be marked clearly on the back there's usually three, if its a top load 1 or 2 of the suspension arms is to low or is broken lie the washer on its side and have a look at the 4 arms suspending the drum
