Shock absorbers will be employed in front-load Blomber washing machines to limit tub movements in the spin cycle. To gain access to the shock absorbers, also known as struts, you’ll need to remove either the front or rear panels. Washers are prone to shake or move in the event that they’re underweight. Shock absorbers that have been damaged or damaged will cause the machine to emit loud banging noises during spin cycles. It is imperative to fix the issue immediately. How to test the shock absorbers of the Blomber washing machine.
- Before you begin washing clothes take the machine off the power.
- Find the shock absorbers. Depending on the model, you’ll have to remove either the front or rear panel.
- Check shock absorbers for worn attachments, weak dampening actions or leaks.
- It is recommended to change the shock absorbers when you notice any of the symptoms. Both shocks should be replaced simultaneously.
Tub springs and suspension springs
The tub assembly in your Blomber washing machine is held in place or fixed from the base by its suspension springs. They absorb and absorb vibrations generated by the spin cycles of the Blomber washing machine. Sometimes, these springs be damaged, bent or shattered, causing excessive noise and vibration during the spin cycle. How to check the suspension spring of a Blomber washing machine
- Before starting, turn off the power source.
- To access the suspension springs, remove the top or front panels from the machine.
- Inspect the springs to check for damage or stretching and ensure that they’re secure at both ends. Careful when replacing springs that are already in tension. Always wear protective clothing.
- If you notice damages, stretching or wear on your suspension springs replacing springs might be needed. If you find any suspension springs that appear to be not working properly, we would recommend replacing them all in one go. They wear out around equally fast rate.
Snubber Ring and Damper Pad & Tube Pads
A Snubber ring is a piece of equipment that dampens Blomber washing machine vibrations when spinning. It’s usually on the bottom of the machine and acts as an extra cushion between the tub support assembly and the base. The majority of tub wear pads as well as snubber ring components are made from hard plastic. Certain damper pads are made from lubricated felt. Each style will eventually wear out and permit the tub to move too much. They may also wear out until the tub supports touch the base of the metal washer. In this case the washer might shake violently. How to check a damper pad in the Blomber washing machine you own:
- Remove the front panel of your washer by unplugging it.
- Find and examine the snubber. To inspect the snubber, it is necessary to pull out the tub springs.
- Look for white dust near or on the plastic style snubber. For the felt type check for dry or dislodged pads. If you experience any of these symptoms it is time to replace your nubber ring.
Tub Dampening Strap
Top Load washers fitted with tub dampening straps can be used to cushion tub movement throughout spin cycles. The tub’s top as well as each corner of the cabinet are held by four straps. These straps are made of rubber and wear down with regular use. If straps are stretched or damaged, the tub may be in contact with the cabinet during spin. This will cause the washer to shake, move and produce a loud banging noise. Excessive use and large loads will cause strain to the straps, causing premature failure. How to check the tub dampening buckle on the washer.
- Start by unplugging the washer. After that, remove the outlet from the washer and find the dampening straps for tubs.
- Each strap will be connected to the tub and also to one corner of the cabinet. Inspect the tub dampening straps for any indications of fraying, wear, or damage.
- You’ll need four replacement tub dampening straps in the event that you observe any of these symptoms. It is recommended that all four of your straps be replaced at once, as they wear around the same time.
Support Leg for the Washer
The washer’s leveling legs provide support to the washer. They can also be adjusted so that it can be set to level. Some models have four threaded feet, while others are equipped with two threaded as well as two self-leveling back legs. If your Blomber washing machine vibrates or shakes during the spin cycle, you should be sure that it’s level and securely seated on all four legs. How can you check the legs that are level in the Blomber washing machine? This repair does not require you to disassemble your appliance. However, it is recommended that you unplug the appliance before you start.
- To get to the feet, the washer should be turned so that it faces towards the side or in the direction of the front.
- The first step is to ensure that all feet that level are equal. If you find that one of the feet that are level is not level, perform one test. If the issue persists look for indications of wear and damages to the feet and be sure that they’re correctly threaded.
- Replacement leveling legs will be required if have any of these issues.
