Washer walks away from wall during spin cycle and noticed black substance under the washer


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

MTD 42" CUT MOWER MODEL 42A707 TYPE 1238 01 CODE960 2085A. 1) Mower blades do not stop spinning when deck is raised all of the way. 2) Left blade intermitantly makes a horrible noise when cutting grass...


I think either the bolt holding the left blade onto the spindle is loose, or the cup washers under that bolt are flattened or missing. As a result, the blade is slipping on the shaft and probably making a squeal or squawk. Take off the deck, flip it over, and remove the blades. Note if the bolts seem tight. And look at the washers stacked under the bolts. Replace any missing washers, or flattened cup washer. Make sure the cup washer faces the right way (hollow side toward the blade). Tighten things back up securely - it takes a hefty pull on the end of a 2 foot long wrench to get enough torque.

Whining noise, only in rinse and spin cycle, sounds awful.


Check the pump to make sure there isn't something stuck in it.

If the sound is a grinding noise, this is usually a symptom of a gear case (transmission) going bad. However, it could also indicate a motor coupling that's starting to fail. If you look under the washer check for any drips or puddles of oil. If you find any, the transmission has begun leaking and needs to be replaced. If you find a black powdery looking substance, this is an indication of a motor coupling that is failing. I hope this may help you. Let me know what you find.
