I purchased my washer in May of '05. I moved in Aug. '05 to a new location. My brother-in-law put in the barrel support bars that are necessary for transporting the washing machine. The local appliance repair co I called in to remove the bars and hook up the washer & dryer forgot to remove the bars. One load was run (started & left the house)& upon the second load it was obvious by the terrible banging the support bars had not been removed. When the appliance man came out to remove them I asked what type of damage was done to the machine. He said none which I questioned.
On and off the clothes seemed to be more wet than they should have been. 8mo later the pump went & now the barrel is all over banging the inside of the machine.
Does anyone know wether or not the support bars being left in could have done damage to the inside of the machine causing or leading to the trouble I've since been having?

How did you get on with your search for a new Magnetron ?? I have one of these great little cookers, but the buttons on the control panel are "sticking" or only intermittently operating - have to press pause many times to get the machine to shut down. I might need a new control panel or at best the one fitted needs a good internal clean - have you stripped your mmachine down ??
I am guessing here but if it is the same as my brother in laws car there is a safety lock on the gear shift under the console, my brother in laws car locked in park and it was impossible to move the gear shift out of park.
The safety lock was the problem, I could not see why they put it there as the shifter locked into a groove anyway so I removed the lock and he has had no trouble since
purchased a Whirpool duel washing machine Aug 05. In June of 08 it
showed an F11 error. After factory repair service tech. looked at it he
said that i needed a main motor at a cost of $400.00 After search on
internet many people reported problems also and decided not to repair
it. Has any one had problems with theirs?Ihave the same problem is there any solution????please help
Many washers have a sipping rod or bar that needs to be inserted into the unit from the rear or the bottom; this keeps the drum and balance mechanism stable while being moved. Either, the bar/rod is still in the unit and causing the noise, or it was never inserted for the move and the drum balance is off kilter and need to be physically repositioned so the drum sits well centered. Most likely, nothing is broken; just a nuisance. Goodluck, Macgivor
I just had the same problem last week Aug 1 2009 on our WFK 2401 purchased in 2001
If you hear no motor spinning when it should then it's something with the motor. If you hear motor spinning, esp spin cycle, but the drum doesn't spin, then probably broken belt ($30 part).
Since I work on cars (this is very much like an alternator+belt) and wanted to avoid a $100 service call (just to come to house) and at least try for a quick fix before buying a new washer, I opened the back, confirmed belt looked ok, so tried replacing the brushes in the motor, and it worked.
For a good description on how to do this see http://dossy.org/2007/05/lots-of-miles-on-our-bosch-wfk2401uc-washer-motor/ I took some pics, and time permitting will post more details to this dossy site to help fellow owners. I purchased the brushes at partstap.com for $50 (incl tax+ship)
i had same prob. at my daughters house, similar model. first time a hose popped off the top(i removed the lid), later i noticed leaks because my son in law was using oxy clean and it foamed over. my advice is, put machine on its side and look for loose/popped off hoses, dont use too much soap or additives, which will trick the water level sensor or just pour over that little drum
Dont know if you can purchase these. First people to try are the manufactures. Otherwise, unscrew the two screws at the rear top of machine and pull backwards to remove top.Then pack some towells or rugs around the drum then replace top. Don,t forget to remove rugs at new home.!! Good luck on your move.
