Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine (sorry about my UK spelling!) and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

2: i must be something inside. use a cheap rubber hose to your ear.

parked (rats/mice....), idling,, moving, or only bumps in road.

I have a WD 1049c. It wont stop filling up with water, once machine is full it starts emptying while it is still filling up and then I get an "FE" message. I try to turn it off but it turns...


This sounds like the drain hose is too low resulting in a Syphon effect, lift the drain hose to around 2ft above floor level to cure .Good luck..Gerry
