Question about Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Machine too heavy to move

I can't slide my new machine into its space as it's too heavy and won't budge. My old machine had gliders at the rear and adjustable feet at the front but this one has four adjustable feet. Note: It's actually a Bosch WAE32464GB 1600 speed front load washer but this site won't accept anything that they haven't listed as valid?!

The only way to move a heavy machine is to push on the front and tilt it back then walk it into position.
you may need help.
you can get sliders at walgreens but they may cause issues as they wear.

Why does the machine move noisily at the start of spin?


There are heavy springs and a couple of friction dampers that stabilize the drum to control out of balance loads. If its a front loader machine, pull it out, turn off the power. Look at the top back edge of the top lid and there are usually a couple of screws retaining the lid. Remove those and slide the lid either forwards or backwards to release it. Get a flashlight and have a look in the top to see if a spring has come adrift. If you are not sure what to do get a neighbour with DIY skills to have a look. The spring may have failed but most times its just popped off. If you need a new one take all the info of the stickers on the back of the machine.

I need to transport a front loading washing machine a 3 miles distance. I know that front loaders require a stabilization kit, but given the short distance, is it really necessary?


with the machine unpluged and freestanding from the wall.at the back of the top panel you will find two screws remove and slide the top off,you see a large cement block get an old duvou/heavy blanket and wrap it inside over the block and top of machine,keeping the drum and block as tight as possiable.dont forget to remove after moving.adrianxxx

Asko 620 washer won't drain well with heavy load


Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

For more troubleshooting steps, see Washing machine won't drain. I hope this helps!

We bought a kenmore front loading heavy duty washing machine with 2-way tumble in Feb 2003. Recently two problems have become evident. First, our clothes have started to have black marks (streaks and...


Likely the cause is grease from a failing rear bearing.

Unfortunately, it's cheaper to buy a new washer than to fix this one. That's pathetic for a washer that's only 8 years old, and completely negates any environmental and economic benefits of buying a front loader.
