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 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 suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

Plug into proper electrical socket. Do not hard wire directly to your electrical source. There is no power surge protection on the machine. Please use a power surge protector to ensure your machine is not damaged.

Washing machine balance is off since we moved it.


There are tension springs attached to the tub. They are for the balancing upon spinning. Check and see if one came loose

I hear water in the washing machine when move it and think maybe water is building up in the machine. What should I do?


What you are hearing is the liquid inside the balance ring at the top of the wash tub. You could set the machine in the center of your driveway and drain every drop of water from the hoses and pump, yet you would still hear the liquid in the balance ring when the machine (more specifically, the inner tub) is moved. It needs to be there to help balance out of balance wash loads.

Out of balance on spin cycle (machine is level)


The balancing straps that hold the drum in balance could be broken or the springs could be wore out.

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance


Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

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

Balancing


This type of thing should not be required. Front load washing machines (well, topload too i guess) will balance themselves out for the spin cycle unless the machine is grossly overloaded.

Good luck.
