A washing machine is a wonderful device that helps housewives a lot. After all, how much free time appears when you wash not manually but with the help of a washing machine? After all, the washing process is optimized.
But, as sad as it may sound, but still, over time, we notice that the washing machine begins to work very noisily and vibrate, and sometimes “jump” around the bathroom. And the user wonders: where did this vibration come from and how to get rid of it?
We want to warn you that when the washing machine starts to vibrate strongly, it means that serious violations and malfunctions have appeared in its design. And if you do not make any decisions, it can lead to serious breakdowns of the washing machine, the repair of which will cost you a pretty penny.
It is worth noting that the device can vibrate during different stages of its operation: when starting, spinning, etc. Therefore, for each of these cases, there is a separate scheme for setting up the machine. If you act very carefully and according to the instructions, you can eliminate all the faults that have arisen.
To begin with, pay attention to the springs that hold the tank of the machine. Especially if the machine began to vibrate after a few months of operation. If you bought equipment from a dubious company, then this was to be expected. Washing machine springs are far from eternal, and over time can wear out in the same way as shock absorbers. If such parts have lost their elasticity, then there is only one way out – the replacement of springs.
Bearing failure is one of the most unpleasant malfunctions that can happen to the machine. As a rule, when such spare parts fail, the machine starts to jump when spinning. This can happen due to the fact that during washing water gets on the bearings, and they rust. If this is the problem, then you can not use the machine until you change the bearings.
Another reason for the appearance of such a malfunction is worn shock absorbers. Such elements need to be urgently replaced, otherwise, your machine will not work for a long time. The thing is that the washing tank is held on shock absorbers that eliminate noise during its operation. Thus, even the highest quality parts can not work forever, and eventually, wear out. Masters advise replacing two shock absorbers at once, even if the second is still in good condition.
Counterweights are elements that are used to eliminate vibration during the operation of the device. Such parts are plastic or concrete blocks that are attached to the body of the machine. When the fasteners are loose, vibration immediately occurs, which can be eliminated by tightening the screws. But when all these parts are in order, the cause of vibration may be hidden in other trifles, for example, improper installation of the washing machine, overload, etc.
If you monitor the operation of your equipment and follow all the recommendations from the manufacturer, then nothing threatens your equipment.
