Question about Washing Machines
I just bought a Bosch washer and when you turn it on it vibrates all over the place. My husband has taken great care to make sure it is on a level floor, but it still vibrates. My friend just mentioned that there is something called shipping screws attached to the back of the machine that, unless they are removed, will cause the machine to jump and vibrate. How do we get rid of the screws?
Thanks very much.
There are 3 or 4 depending on the model 3/8" bolts they need to be unscrewed completely and removed for the machine to operate properly the how to in in the use and care guide with the install instructions sheet

Make sure that you properly removed all of the shipping bolts and packing material when you installed the washer. This could cause the machine to vibrate. I provided an image below regarding the removal of the transport bolts and packing of the washer. I also provided a link below for the entire installation manual for your washer. Carefully review this entire manual to make sure that the washer is properly installed.
If the washer is on unstable flooring, it will vibrate and walk. This type of washer works best when it is on a concrete slab. If it is on a wood floor, you may need to reinforce the foundation to eliminate vibration.
