Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

Packing support bars

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?

I need a magnetron for a Brother MF3200 microwave oven

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 ??

Locked in park

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

Washer was moved from one location to another; when turned on at new location it makes a noise and code of DR

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 have a Bosch washer, model number WFK 2401 that washes and rinses, but suddenly won't spin. It just sits and counts down until the end of the spin cycle and then signals the end of the wash cycle as...

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)

Kenmore top load portable washer, model 110.42722200

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

Car shakes every time when appling brakes

The rotors are warped, need to replace them, also when the wheeles are put back on, the lug nuts need to be tourqued down to the specifications for that car, or the new rotors will warp again.

Need bolts to stabilize washer for move

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.
