Bosch Washing M/C WFL-2050

I had a problem with my washing M/C suddenly making a lot of noise while spinning. Upon opening the back panel, I can see that one of the spring has been broken and the drum has moved to the right hand side, touching the body of the washing M/c. I was wondering if it is necessary to replace both the springs and if there needs to be any alignment to be done before I can use it.

    Hi Benimur,

    I have received the original springs and has replaced both of them, the M/C works great. Thanks very much for the useful advice.

    Regards,

Hi,

Think of the springs as the suspension of a car, their purpose is to provide even spacing/position of the tub/drum relative to the frame/chassis. If you can get an exact duplicate of the spring from the manufacturer, then there would be no need for an alignment. If however the new spring is not identical, then there would be unevenness in the pulling/tension and/or probably even in the position/alignment. Might I suggest replace all of the springs if not an exact part from the manufacturer, this is to assure even pull/tension and hence no need for an alignment.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Bosch washer wfl 2050/ 2060 door is locked and will not open


Tom
Unplug it from the power source.
It should release it if not you have a sticky selenoid that locks your system.
If freed. great.. but you need to have that selnoid replaced, because it will happened again.
If the power interruption doesn't work, you need to dismantle your system.
If still under warrenty... Cal a service guy
