Question about Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Front glass window seems loose

I have had my washer and dryer for almost one year. Over the past few weeks, the washer has been making a rattling noise during the spin cycle. When I push on the glass window, the noise stops. It seems as though the glass window on the washer is not as tight as it is on the dryer (it can be pushed in a bit on the washer but it does not move on the dryer). Any idea how I can tighten this or should I call for service?

Re: 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. When the machine is spinning, place your hand gently against the glass and check for a vibration. Do not push on the glass

I have a frigidaire stackable washer/dryer model number FEx831cs0. The washer is working just find but the dryer for a few weeks has been making the worst screeching sounding in the world. I am not sure if...

A loose belt often makes a squeak that pulsates with the clothes hitting the paddles in the drum. It's probably the upper drum glide or rear bearing. If it's a constant screech coming from the front, it's probably the glide. If the noise seems to be in the back, suspect the bearing. You might check for a sock or something small that is stuck somewhere between the drum and the dryer.


Bearing kit:

Neither are very difficult to repair.

Other parts for your machine:

Good luck.

All lights flash when started

try a different socket and try not to use extension leads if the lights continue to flash do not worry for now . the balance problem could be uneven load . or get some one to remove top and check support springson top and dampers at bottom are still in place . and concrete weights are not loose .

Same problem but I have a 3 week old maytag 9000 steam dryer, ran for a few minutes then turns off and display reads F 70

From everything I have read on the F70 code (can't seem to find an exact explanation of what it is) It seems like people are getting replacement dryers due to a electrical problem within the dryer control circuitry. Since it is only 3 weeks old, get it replaced. Good luck

Washer has worked great for almost a year but now all the loads seem to be unbalanced. It doesn't matter if they are large, small or on any particular cycle, they all sound unbalanced and shake my house...

The motion dampers that control the outer tub's movement within the cabinet may be loose or damaged. Lift up on the inner drum when the machine is off to see if the drum moves with a 'clunking' sound which would indicate a bad drum shaft bearing (not a cheap fix). If it seems ok, remove the top and back panels to check the action of the dampers when the outer drum is shaken. Hope this helps!

One says the lid switchs are not working in tandem with each other. Another says the circuit board is bad. I say it is because it is a Maytag and built with an obsolete ethical plan for generating profit.

Washer makes loud rattling noise when spinning

first check to make is to be sure machine is level using a 2ft level ck level side to side and front to rear see if level if not adjust either by adjusting level legs on bottom of machine or using wooden door shims available @ building supply store , if you don't have level use two small clear water glasses with a exact amount of water in each put a line on each glass measure with rule and make sure line is in exactly same spot on each glass fill to line and place one on rear of machine and one on front level till lines match then repeat process side to side

No power??

It's more than likely its the door lock, if not check the timer contacts on the top front connection block, if they have blown it will need a timer & door lock
