Question about Washing Machines
My boyfriend and I just bought this washer used. It is a Whirlpool Super Capacity Model Number LSR7010PQ1. As far as I know, when we looked at it it was fine. He and his friends moved it to our apt and I just went to use it for the first time. The drum is COMPLETELY off center. The rim is right under where the water comes out so the water started spraying everywhere and leaking over the side of the drum and pouring out of the bottom of the machine. I no have water all over the floor. I've tried pushing or moving the drum to center, but it just wont stay anywhere accept where it is. Could this be caused by the move? And how the heck do I fix it? Its just sitting down there with some water in it now because I stopped the cycle and didn't know what to do!
To my knowledge most washers have transfer bolts or retainers that keeps the position of the drum firm while in storage or in transit. there would be 3 or four of them. Please verify that all the transfer bolts were removed.
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.
