The new washing machine jumps when spinning

The new washing machine jumps when spinning

It often happens that a new washing machine jumps during the spin cycle. Customers think they got a defective model and want to return the equipment to the store. The reason for this behaviour of the home assistant can be both a banal user error and a manufacturing defect. Let's figure out what to do if the washer shakes a lot.

Why does the problem occur during the spin phase?

Usually, the automatic machine makes noise during the spin phase. The washing drum spins up to maximum speed (1000-1600 per minute, depending on the CMA model). That is much more than the speed during the main wash. That is why the shaking begins just when the laundry is spun.

Often the reason that a working washer jump is an imbalance. Things in the drum are lumped together, and the load is felt in one part of the tank. Because of this, the machine shakes strongly during the spin phase.

For example, you need to wash a blanket. If he is alone in the machine, he cannot avoid imbalance. Load a couple of small items into the washer to balance the drum. It can prevent strong shaking during the spin cycle.

Also, do not use laundry bags unless necessary. They create a point load on the drum and provoke its imbalance. But why does the machine jump even when spinning ordinary things? Let's look at the possible reasons.

Buck stayed fixed

The grossest user error is starting the washing machine with transport bolts. Many, experiencing a great desire to put the washer into operation quickly, completely forget the need to remove the fasteners that fix the tank. In this case, the machine will buzz and jump at the washing stage and during the spin cycle.

That is a very dangerous situation. It will succeed if the machine works with the bolts removed for a long time. Many damaged bearings and other internal components of the AGR. Such a breakdown will be considered non-warranty, and returning a non-working device to the store will not be possible. Repairs will have to be done at your own expense.

Transport screws are available in any washing machine. They fix the moving parts of the SMA, preventing them from becoming loose during transportation. Before putting the automatic machine into operation, the transport bolts are removed without fail.

Fasteners are removed with a wrench or pliers. It is best to keep the transport bolts. We may need them if the washing machine needs to be transported to another location.

The body of the machine is not level.

Another common cause of strong shaking of the machine during the spin cycle is the incorrect installation of the new SMA. Therefore, it is important to align the washer's body horizontally. In practice, the device is removed from the package and put in place without adjusting the legs.

Put the new machine in place and put a building level on it. Next, adjust the body's position by twisting the washer's legs with a wrench. Again, the device must be level.

Also, the cause of shaking can be poor flooring under the machine. Therefore, the floor at the installation site of the washer must be hard and level—ideally - concrete.

None of this helped.

It is better to call the service centre wizard if it is not an imbalance or an installation error. The new machine is under warranty, so the manufacturer is obliged to perform a free diagnostic and identify the cause of the incorrect operation of the device. Do not exclude the possibility of a factory defect; perhaps the matter is broken bearings.

In any case, do not try to repair a new machine yourself. After an unsuccessful home repair, you will lose your warranty. Therefore, be sure to call a specialist service center.
