Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine jumping

I just plumbed a new machine and fitted an integrated door. The machine has very little clearance at the top but the worktop height is standard. The people using the machine say that it did 2 washes without problem but on the third it jumped and moved a lot. Have I erred or is it for some other reason? The machine is on a tiled floor, on concrete and is level.

    Helpful thanks but I did remove them at installation

    Thanks. Will do. Lock nuts could be cause as 1 might not be tight and the wash may have been too heavy. I will report back at a later time. Thanks again

    ok make sure you tightend the lock nuts on the leveling legs and ask them what they were washing at the time of the malfunction as they may have been the cause of the un balance also brand and model would help

Can I use my Triciry Bendix dishwasher DH101 if I remove the top. It needs more clearance below the worktop. When I remove the top there is a material, not a solid top.

Listen to hear if dishes are rattling against each other. Cups should be loaded only in the top and care to keep each cup separated from other. Chipping usually will occur when dishes are close together and in contact. The racks are rubberized and would be very unlikely the source.

If the feet are adjusted so the machine will not rock it would be unlikely that the top on or off would have any effect.

The upper shelf is adjustable up or down. Suggest locating upper shelf to the up position.


Hope this helps?

Could I "stack" a front

i would not recommend stacking one machine directly on top of another. there are various issues with weight, and movement due to vibration.
what you can do is built a solid "workbench" that you can fit one machine under, and then put the other machine on top of the "bench"
personally i would overbuild the bench, using 2" by 1" wood for the frame, braced and bolted to the wall for stability, and use a 1"thick worktop forv the top of the unit. on the top surface, i would also put a 3/8" wooden beading strip about 1/2" fron the outside edges of the worktop to stop the machine moving with vibration and falling off.
i have done this a number of times when space is limited, although i find it much easier to put tehr dryer on the top as it is the lightest of the 2 units.

hope this helps

Having a new floor in the kitchen and my faithfull

Buy a machine that will is the first thought , otherwise get the kitchen fitter to raise the worktops above the washer

You could try taking off the top lid and removing the feet underneath which will give you some room

Make sure that you place a sheet of plastic over the top of the machine from side to side and tape it in place if you do remove the top

That is in case you spill anything on the worktop which then drips inside the machine
