Question about Daewoo Washing Machines
My machine (Fisher & Paykel 8 Kg Top Load Aquasmart)has been working fine (eg 2yr+) but now suddenly in the rinse/spin cycle the machine shakes very hard (ie the machine actually moves); then stops; moving the cloths to the middle and press continure works for a minute or two then shake and stops; sometimes after few go it works; I have tried different wash type/size or spin speed
three weeks wait list for the technician; any idea? Thanks
Hi and Wlecome to FixYa. I am Kelly
This is usually a balance ring problem with the inner tub. The ring is filled with water. If it gets a pin hole in it then the spin becomes eliptical and the machine will walk slide, glide across the floor in the spin with or without clothes. There is little you can do if the balance ring has failed other than replace it. If it does the serious unbalance routine with no cloted in the tub during the spin the problem is most likely a damaged balance ring.
Thanks for using FixYa.

There are spin cycle stabilizers that keep the washer tub from going way out of balance, it is very likely that one or more of these has failed and this is why the machine shakes, you will need to remove the washer tub and inspect the parts to determine what parts has failed. Taking the machine apart to this level of tear-down for inspection is only for the person who has advanced mechanical skills, it requires a good set of tools and allot of patience

The tub support rods need to be replaced when a sign of wear and tear is obvious because there is an imminent danger of incurring further damage when it fails totally during the machine operation, specially during a high speed spin. The rods are sold as a set of four and it is part number 421127P.
