Also, flip the washing machine over. There should be a large block of concrete held in place with bolts. The original owner might have removed this to make the unit easier to lift and might not have replaced it. If it is missing, this will also cause the machine to jump around unevenly.

Whirlpool design 2000 is imbalanced eery load - moves around violently, makes pounding noises.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check the suspension of the washer and make sure everything is intact. Now, if the washer is thumping during spinning, this is probably the motor drive or the spin bearing. This would cause a lot of noise. Your washer will act up if it is not balanced right. Check the floor and make sure it is level. If that checks out, look into the motor drive and bearings. The motor drive controls the spinning.

I'm trying to replace the rotors on 2001 Tundra. Calipers are off but rotors won't budge. medium pounding all the way around but they won't budge.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Rotors are hard to get off sometimes, especially without the right tool. If you are changing them anyway, go ahead and use a hammer to break off a piece. Once it is broke, it will come out a lot easier. If you are not breaking them, you really need a rotor tri pod tool. Spray PB blaster or some other chemical on it and keep trying to break it loose. There is nothing holding it on there, it is just snug.

The receiver of my FAXes says that there is a black line down the middle of each page. The FAX is a good copy-clear, etc.... but this line has to go. What can I do? Thanks, Donna

Dear Donna,
When a document is scanned from the top portion of the printer, it will loop around and output from underneath. The scanning glass on the far left side will have some debris on it. Lift the the lid exposing the glass portion, inspect for "stuff" on the glass, perhaps pen or white out. You can use a mild soap and lightly dampened cloth to remove any debris.
Good Luck,

I have had my Prima Donna for a month now and noticed that the milk container did not always slide in smoothly. This morning I really had problems with it. The machine keeps asking for the milk container...

Me too. Mine has been increasingly hard to fit. After speaking with DeLonghi service, they suggested lubricating the o-rings on the nozzles on the machine. I asked if cooking oil would be ok, to which they agreed. To I took a cottonstick and dipped it in ordinary cooking oil, and swept it over the inside of the two nozzles on the milk-container, since the o-rings on the machine itself were hard to get to. Now it works smoothly. I was reluctant to try that out before speaking with DeLonghi service, since they are so set on only using original stuff for the machine, and I did not think a machine this expensive would need this type of 'help'. Use at your own risk :-)

Washing won't spin anymore. It is a Kenmore and approx. 15 years old. Is it better to buy a new one or get this one fixed? what would you do. I am a single homeowner and don't really have anyone to get...

Hi Donna,

There is a coupling that breaks eventually. You may consider having a tech come over and give an opinion on whether that is the issue or not. Old does not mean dead, and new machines are quite pricey, as you porbably know.

Washer will not do final spin

If the washer will spin between wash and rinse cycles and on another cycle like perm. press or heavy duty, then the timer is probably bad. If everything works on another cycle, you can use the machine while you save for another one, or can find a new timer for the one you have. Best of luck
