Why do the cloths in the wash comes wrinkled when removed from the wash


There are different ways the washing is done by different people that is why there are a lot of options to wash on.
If you put your machine on in the morning and empty it when you get home from work or other then the washing will be stuck to the side of the drum after spinnig some time before, getting all creased up. If this is you, then you need to set the "Rinse Hold" this will stop the machine from doing it's final spin until you release it. Of course you can't put delicates on a fast spin or they will be rueined. Basicly, select the right spin speed/time for the fabrick and try and take the washing out of the drum as soon as the machine finishes.

I have a Westpoint Frontloader washing machine. Everything goes well untill it starts spinning. Then is starts shaking and there's a lot of noice. We did make sure that it is level. What else


It is so common that the washing machine can maketerrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it isimportant that your observation is most important and so is vital to theidentification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine isvibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to beinspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine itis important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manuallyturn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, thedrum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions whichinclude the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to bein correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of themounting is also very important. Finallyin most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solvemost issues.Check this link :http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1210/wobbly-washing-machine-or-tumble-dryer.htmlFor replacement of bearings check for tips on thisvisual link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1401/how-to-replace-the-bearings-on-a-washing-mach.html

On a flat floor but bangs and crashes when spinnig. Also the drum wobbles.


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

Machine drum makes loud noice in the spin cycle. Makes the same sound that a top-loading machine makes when it goes out of balance. Help.


  • Hi,
  • Try these:
  1. Balance the load
  2. Level the machine
  3. Inspect the water pump for a blockage
  4. Inspect the coupling
  5. Inspect the transmission
  6. Adjust the drive belt tension
  7. Check the motor bearings
  8. Check the drum brakes
please rate my suggestion...

Bosh 1200 classixx does not finish the program, conditioner stays in the dispenser


check your filter. Could be an eratic pump. Dispening draw needs to be cleaned and make sure the small hole is clear to allow the conditioner to flow through
