Question about Washing Machines
we have an old commercial washer in our house. It's a Wascomat Junior W75 Double Loader. It's been working fine for 3 years and counting.
Lately, though, we have been noticing a screeching sound coming from the machine during the spin cycle. Upon closer inspection it looks as though the drum axle is slightly off center as the drum wobbles slightly both during regular and spin cycles.
Please check out these two videos I recorded to illustrate the problem.
I am wondering whether this is serious or a normal condition. What can I do to fix this?
All tips and information would be very helpful - thank you!
Hi, Probably you need to level it with a 2ft or 4ft level, be sure to check it on all 4 sides. Or the wobbling is normally caused by defective dampers. Just like car suspension, these even-out the vibrations of the drum. When worn, the drum just bounces wildly on its springs. The metallic banging should be avoided by foam buffers fitted inside. These frequently fall off unnoticed. They just need gluing back on with impact adhesive.
