Question about Bosch Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have a Bosch frontloader. I have had it almost 4 yrs. About 6 months ago or a little longer the tub has started to bouce terribly when washing heavy clothes such as jeans, towels, bedding. I have to stop the machine it bounces so badly and redistribute and untangle the clothes before starting it again. Sometimes this works, but most of the time it doesn't, so I take out the heavy clothes and finish washing them later. This is a pain in the **** because I have to be constantly close to the machine! And it makes a noise I can't discribe, its liking a rerrerererere constantly! What is going on?

    How can a agitator become worn on a front loading washing machine? I thought front loaders didn't have an agitator.

    I can't believe something like is worn only after 4 yrs of washing clothes for just me and my husband!

    This repair sounds expensive. If it is, I might as well buy a new machine.

    This is only your opinion.

    I didn't think a front loading washer had an agitator. Can I get another thought on this problem?
    I am mostly concerned with the terrible bouncing of the tub. Its so bad I have to turn off the machine and redistribute the clothes. Sometimes this works, but most of the time it doesn't. So I take out the heavy clothes such as jeans and wash them alone. The machine just doesn't seem to like mixed loads of clothes although this is the way the manual tells you to load. I hate this bouncing, I feel like the machine is going to tear itself up. Plus the constant roaring noise it makes too is aggrevating which tells me something is wrong.
    I used to love this machine. I can't believe something is already tearing up. I thought Bosch was a good brand and I was willing to spend the extra $$ for quality. I hope you let others read this!

    Sounds like you are talking about a car. This washer doesn't have an agitator its a front loader!

    My husband says its always done this bouncing.

The inside of the agitator where the transmission shaft attaches can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Large amount of water in wash tub under the wash basket in Whirlpool frontload duet


Even the new duets do have a panel. You need to lay on the floor to see 3 screws under the front. A torx bit will be needed to remove the screws. Before working on any appliance unplug it so you don't get zapped.

However, the problem is likely caused by the door being twisted. This can often be cured by twisting the door so the bottom is making a better seal against the gasket. This is assuming there is not tear or cut on the door bellows (gasket). Water tracks can normally be seen from the location of the leak. Liquid detergents change the surface tension of water an let it flow from smaller leaks so you may need to keep watch while the unit is being used.

Problem is too much soap. Wrong soap. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.

I have a kenmore frontloading washer, during the spin cycle a noise like grinding can be heard, grinding can also be heard when turning drum by hand...help


its the drum bearings that support the inner drum,you need to replace these bearings,the problem with this is it was manufactured by frigidaire for kenmore and you cant just buy the inner bearing and lip seal as it comes with the outer rear half of the outer.tub where as with maytag neptune or whirlpool duet you can drive these bearin gs out and re-use the tub half,but you can't buy just the bearings and seal for a frigidaire front loader
