Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Please do not take this the wrong way but, although you say you have balanced it, I would STRONGLY recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain. It's designed not to shake even at top spin speed and there is no adjustment anyway ;-0)
-------------------------
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!

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 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.
(but yours is a new machine!)
Good luck,

John C

Just bought the Bosche Axxis front loader. When the spin cycle kicks in, the machine wobbles/shakes/wanders VIOLENTLY from side to side. Is it the installation or the machine?


I bought the Bosch 8Kg washing machine on 8th Feb, I had the same problem.

Read installation instructions, you need to remove transport safety nuts from the back.

My washer goes into spin cycle byitself and when washing,if u r in spin cycle it sets for 14 mins thats good 4 mins into spin all knob lights start flashing and the screen says uL


One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.

The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.

You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.

If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.

SHAKING WASHER


I had a shakey washer that I bought open box from "circuit city", it was a return.

I was to lazy to learn why the washer would shake and a technician told me to manually balance the wash load in the drum.

Later, I got into the washer and lubed up the rotating shafts and rockers. The washer lost all its shakes with the mechanics properly lubed. From the factory the mechanics were never properly lubed.

Tight mechanics that are supposed balance the spin cycle by moving could be part of what is getting warm. The belt spinning the washer also takes a beating when the drum shakes.

Get a good discount on your washer first, and then lube the mechanics. Everything about the washer is meant to work. If the mechanics are too tight you'll have shaking.

Brand new washing machine wandering on spin cycle


It sounds like the transit bolts or some of the packing is still in place. Running the machine with these in place can do serious damage.

With only 1 item in Drum my new Bosch WAE24363 will not perform a spin cycle, yet adding more item into the drum then the machine will perform a full spin cycle. Why will the machine only do a full spin...


most modern machines have an out of balance detector to prevent the machine being damaged with a badly balanced load.
with a single item in drum, load will not balance and out of balance detector comes into action and prevents spin

WAY too much shaking


Take out the four "shipping\travel" bolts in the back of the machine. Read the manual- it will tell you how to do this. John
