Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Just stuff blankets or equivalent inside from the back all the way around the outside of the drum- quick, easy and CHEAP!
Plus move with care ;-0)

I had to move my stackable washer and dryer the leveling has now come off balance one of the back legs is all the way up while the other is down, cant seem to get them readjusted


When you moved the unit, perhaps if you moved it from side to side, one of the casters (feet) might have either turned (screwed) one way or the other. If you can raise the unit and tighten or loosten one of the back casters to match the others it might solve your problem. Many units have casters that can become uneven if the unit is moved by swiveling from side to side instead of lifting. Good luck.

Extremely loud noice and vivbration, I am waiting for the dryer to fall off when spinning. the basket is freely moving around and goes up and down because I checked for a broken leg on the shaft support....


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

Before doing anything else follow my notes on how to ensure your washer is balanced.

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,

I stacked my dryer on my front loader washer. How do I stabilize the pair?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France
Follow my guidance notes closely but with the dryer on top. Once you have done the washer, you may find that you can do a similar thing with the dryer if it has adjustable feet ;-0)

Loud banging noise from drum when spinning.

I mostly do answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!

The washer drum has way too much wiggle. it does spin in one spot it moves the whole washer across the room


Hi,

Quick cure- have the feet properly adjusted. See if you can rock the washer from one front corner. Push fairly firmly.If you can rock it the foot at that corner wants adjusting downwards until it is tight on the floor but without lifting the corner. If not the first corner do the same with the other. Ensure that the feet are locked afterwards- there is normally a locking nut which can be screwed up tight to the base.

This should cure your wandering washer!

During washing cycles machine moves around on floor,what could cause this?


One of two issues: The most common is that the feet on the bottom of the unit are not level. Take a level to the top of your dryer and level it out. If your dryer is level then the drum is out of alignment and there are screws in the back of the machine that will let you align the drum to make it level

I need to replace the drum seal due to brown stains on clothes.


When the front door glide system on the fex series dryers wears out the drum isn't held in place properly, there is enough of a gap between the bottom of the drum and the front panel for clothing to get in. As the drum rolls and the item moves to the top it becomes pinched as the gap closes leaving stains and sometimes damaged clothing.
If this is what you are talking about, Make sure it is unplugged then remove the slanted panel above the washer lid. remove the control panel (4 screws) it can be unplugged (2 plugs on left side) and laid aside (rubber line can be removed and slid out of plastic clamp.
when the control panel is removed you will find two screws holding the bottom of the front panel, these have to be removed.
there are 4 screws along the upper edge of the front panel that have to come out and then the front will come off.
Reassembly is difficult with this machine (I remove the dryer door if I'm working alone) so try to do the job when you have help.
Good Luck

New front load washer dryer is vibrating badly when drying


Q - My washer keeps moving around n the floor, is there any simple things that I can check ?
A - Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength

Washer shakes


Hi,
If the drum moves about wildly during use, then the chances are the dampers need replacing.
These are exacly like the shock absorbers on cars (only smaller) and reduce the vibrations from the drum.

Without them, and just relying on the support springs, the drum will bounce about untill it breaks a hose - often banging the sides during slowing down from a spin.

It is also possible a support spring has come off or broken - this will cause the drum to sag when first loaded.

Both are replacable items with the back / top off.

Noisy dryer


i had same problem with washing machine. i found out it was the stone inside which holds it down while it spins. The screws or nuts or what ever is holding the stone could be loose.

Or it could be the nuts or screws of the actual drum that spins that got loose when you moved the machine
