For the shaky washer:
Adjust your washer's front legs and lock the nut, it has
another nut to do this. After you hav locked the legs, try to rock the washer
with your hands, it should not rock. Another thing to check will be inside your
washer, after taking the power off the wall socket. Check to see if some
springs or the shocks (dampers) have come loose. This normally happens when the
load is not even, that is when you hav a big sheet in one part of the washer
tub. Spread out the clothes evenly before you commence the wash.
To see if washer is firm: hold the front
portion of the washer, the 2 corners and try to shake it, if it does not move,
it is fine.
If you are
handy at all this is simplicity itself.
Check the pump - slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take
off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical
connection. (make note where wires go) Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws
open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble.
Washing a full load is better than 2 or 3 small loads, saves
But if there is a loud
spin noise, means that your bearings are wearing out.
Is your belt too tight?
For the smelly washer:
You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of
soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer.
Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with
the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also
helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the
machine, not in the soap dispenser.
For most front-loaders: rubber boot, seal
Remove the top, screws behind the top lid. Slide an inch away from you &
lift up. Remove old seal. Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with
washing-up fluid, if you find resistance.
Starting at the top, press the seal so the
flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using
thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way
round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the
outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of
hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the
plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.
(There is no glue anywhere, only clamps)
