Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

Vibrition at high speed

My washing machine is running fine up until the spin cycle. at low speed it's fine but as soon as the high speed starts the washer vibrates violently
and loud bangs are heard. looking into the machine you can see the drum
shaking. I think there maybe some kind of bush that the front of the drum rotates on and this is what may be broken. This is only a guess, but if im right can a spare part be got and is it replacable. Any suggestions would
be appreciated. Peter Carter

My maytag washer is shaking violently on the rinse cycle


I am currently having the same issue with my Maytag A482. Not sure if you have found a fix yet, or if you have replaced your washer. My washer runs fine until it nears the end of the cycle, when it begins to spin and shake violently, enough to loosen the leveling feet and rock back and forth. I pulled the front panel of the machine off (two screws near the base in the front, and two clips at the top) and ran a load through it. It ran fine until the end, when the machine started shaking violently. I did notice a few small pieces of roundish felt looking material sitting on the bottom, which after some research looks like it may be the damper pad. I found these online:
Damper pad 203956
Replacement Damper 203725 for MAYTAG Laundry Appliances A482

I am hoping this will resolve the issue, I will order them this afternoon and install them once they arrive. I really hate to replace such a good washer with a new high efficiency unit, which all seem to have terrible reviews after a few months/year of use.

We installed a stacked set of WFW9250WW and WGD9270XW Whirlpool washer and dryer. When we turned on the washer, everything worked fine until the spin cycle. The machine started vibrating violently and...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a problem with your stacked washer & dryer, thank you for providing the model number (of both) that is a good start... however I need to follow that up with a couple of questions.


Are these "new to you" machines or have you had them prior to this and just never stacked ?

Also had you run the washer before they where stacked and not noticed an vibrations violently/noise like a hammer spinning inside?

Finally, what method did you use to fasten the dryer to the top of the washer and did you remove the cabinet top of the washer before stacking...for the record it should not be removed as was the case with some other manufactured machines.

Let me know if you can add anything further along with the make & model. I will wait for your reply to move forward.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Why won't my washer go to a high speed spin when in the spin cycle? it drains the water out of the drum, but it doesn't go into the high speed spin.


well there is two possibilities and one is a safety precaution to keep from ruining the washer .
if the washer cannont distribute the load evenly it will only go into a slow spin try adding more clothes.... to evenly coat the drum >>. the other is if it is out of balance or the wsher isnt't level it will shake violently and spin in slow cause it detects an imbalance problem if this machine has operated a long time overladed , or unlevel it can wear out the tub schocks which takes all vibrations of the tub to give more of a gently ride the a are like schock absorbers....

LG Tromm washer wont spin through the spin cycle and reads error ue. I have tried to balance the load several times and still get the same error.


This error generally happens when people try to run a bulky load, like a coat, rug, pillow, etc., using a high speed spin. For these loads, choose the low speed spin. After the cycle completes, if you think the clothes are too wet, power up the machine again but instead of choosing a cycle, just push the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed (usually about 14 minutes will show on the display) and push start. The machine will usually be able to get to a faster speed now, as the clothes have some of the water spun out of them from the earlier low speed spin, allowing the machine to reach a higher spin speed without the Unbalance Error code showing up. Of course, you want to make sure the machine is on a solid floor with all the legs adjusted properly also.

LE error after full cycle toward end of wash it comes up with an error. not sure if it LE or upside down F E? Anyone have this prob?


LE toward the end of cycle probably means you had a bulky load which you tried to spin out at the high spin speed setting. Use a low spin speed with bulky loads. For this load now, just put power on and without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed selector button until a low speed comes up (should be about a 14 minute display) then push start to do a pump and spin only cycle.

What does LEstand for on the washer machine??


LE stands for Load Error. You may have a bad hall sensor, but more likely have an off balance or very heavy load which you were trying to spin at a high speed. For heavy / bulky items, use the low spin speed. After the cycle, you can power the machine up again and just push the spin speed button until the next higher speed shows, then push start to get a 14 minute or so pump and spin only cycle if you want to spin the load out a bit more.

Off balance


make sure you have all the shipping material out of unit..4 bolts in back and styrofoam under tub if so ,then get a adjustable wrench ,,,put unit in drain spin cycle or spin cycle only..when unit gets to fastest spin ,,thats will come when its about 8 minutes left..tighten each leg lock nut on unit until unit stops vibrating..only turn the lock nut not the leg..only adjust lock nut on legs in high speed spin
