The concrete weight at the bottom off my hoover eco technology has broken of can i still use my washing machine

Hi there, the machine will still work. However it will bounce around all over the place. The concrete block is to hold it down in one place. It needs to be fixed or replaced.

Is there a holding bracket on the washing machine? I have removed the lid and can see a concrete block but would not be able to remove it. I have bought the machine in Spain and have no instruction...

The concrete blocks are vibration dampers and must remain on the machine or it will go flying all over the house. Some machines come with restraining brackets fitted for transportation and these have to be removed before use. If the drum of the machine is relatively free on its suspension it means that the brackets have been removed already, if not, then look for brackets attaching the bottom of the drum to the frame of the machine.

Zanussi ZWF14070 - concrete 'damper'

Moulded plastic 'spigots' still form part of the drum housing, but no concrete block is now fitted to the rear.

Wf860 about to explode!

there is no magic to the counterweight supports. if they are damaged, you will have to replace the tub and it is not a worthwhile repair. it is quite a common problem

Vibration problems

it could be a number of problems which are very common on the entire wma range.
1, drum bearings are really poor in these.
2, concrete block tapping, sometimes the bracket n the drums snap.
3, motor bracket snapped causing tapping.

i've found the plastic drums seem to be quite weak on the wma range to be honest so will more than likely be one of the above.

hope this helps

Just leave that concrete block there, it is to prevent your tub from taking off skywards.

Suspension pads? where are they do you have a good diagram?

most suspensions on machines use 2 springs on top of the drum and 2 suspension legs on the bottom. ( similar to a car shock absorber) just make sure the bottom concrete counter weight is not loose , this will cause violent a shake

Machine banging when in fast spin

if the noise is coming from inside the drum then it will be the bear ings if this machine is less than 3years old then this is what bust hotpoint they changed the bearing setup and put a spring on it which its the spring that is the complete failure u need to take the complete drum out strip this put the new bearing set in but without the spring this wil put at least 2-3years on the bearings its a big job and costs about £120 to fix u r accually better off buying a completely different washer no good are hotpoints anymore m8
