Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back.

Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.)

Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.

Where is the on switch on a matsui mwm145w


There isn't one. Basically, when you set it up for a specific cash program by rotating the program knob, it will switch on when you press the start/pause button. When the wash cycle is complete, you can turn the program knob to "O" at the top, which is "off".

Fridgaire vibrating and moving ahead during spin cycle


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Being a new installation it will need its feet adjusting ;-0)

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine 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 assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer ran perfectly smooth on spin cycle until we installed the pedestal drawer. When checked with a level, it is precisely level from front to back and side to side. Even if, I lower the spin speed it...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Very surprisingly a spirit level result can be improved upon! I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain as others with similar problems have successfuly.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

I have moved into a building with a brand new washing machine and every time I run the washer it moves around and it is starting to damage the machine and my walls. what can I do to stop this?


Hi from retired Englishman in France,

It is imperative that washing machines are absolutely 'level', especially most noticeable when carrying out the spin cycle.

You need, in a hurry, to have the 4 (probable) feet underneath adjusted so that all of them are FIRMLY on the floor. New machines in the UK and France come with an adjustment spanner- I will presume yours has.
The ones at the rear can be left alone provided they are 'locked' with a locking nut and will not rotate. Probably just one of the two at the front needs to be tightened down firmly to stop the machine being capably of being rocked by firm pushes. If it rocks from the right-hand side then it is the right-hand side which should be adjusted.Conversly the left-hand side.
Having this done will save potential damage to the washing machine dampers/shock absorbers which are part of the internal suspension of the drum.
Good luck,

John C

During spin, machine moves!


Hi,

Did you remove the transport rods from the back of the unit? this will cause the unit to jump around a lot when it goes into the spin cycle. Also make sure the feet are all level and the unit doesn't rock from side to side.

Matsui mwm145w goes straight into a spin cycle


Try to move the timer to a different postion if it still does the same thing turn the timer one full turn and try turning it on again if it still does it you have a bad timer, as for the bounceing that could be casue the leg stops need to be adjusted so machine is level, You may have a bad drum roller as well.

Kenmore 80 series will agitate but not spin or let water out.


Hi, I know washer had a party, he just need a dancing partner, joking, that's a common problem, when machine is not properly level, you should used spirit level, to level machine, after leveling machine, place both hands on machine, and try to rock it from left to right, forward and backward, and it should not have any play, if there's play adjust legs to compensate, water has to be pumped out first before machine spins, rhere's something wrong with water pump, maybe some fabric stuck in pump impeller, or maybe wires disconnected from water pump, remove back of machine and check connection to water pump, check for kink hoses, visual check, if wire were remove, connect to water pump, you're smart. good luck.

Leveling a washer tub how to do so


first get a level. second, some have self leveling rear legs, just lean the machine forward and set down slowly. the rear legs are now level. if you dont have self leveling rear legs, the legs screw in, so just screw them in or out as well as the front legs untl it appears level by eye. now place the level on the washer. check it front to back and side to side. try rocking the machine to see if there is any movement. if there is adjust the legso it stops rocking, all the while keeping an eye on the level
