Shock absorbers will be used in front load Miele washing machines to dampen tub movements in the spin cycle. To gain access to the shock absorbers, also known as struts, it is necessary to remove either the front or rear panels. Unbalanced loads can cause washers shake or move as well as shock absorbers that are weak or damaged will result in a loud banging noise during spin cycles.

Suspension Spring and Tub spring
The suspension springs of your Miele washing machine serve to stabilize or suspend the tub’s base. They absorb and block out vibrations caused by spin cycles of the Miele washing machine. Sometimes, these springs can be damaged, bent or shattered, causing excessive noise and vibrations during the spin cycle. How do you inspect the Miele washing machine’s suspension spring Before starting, turn off the power source.
- Take off the front or top panel of the washer in order to reach the springs that support it.
- Inspect the springs to check for damage or stretching and ensure they are properly secured at both ends. Be careful when replacing springs currently in tension. Protective clothing is essential.
- If you notice stretch, damage, or wear on your suspension springs replacement springs could be required. If you find any suspension springs not working properly, we would recommend replacing them all at once. They wear out around equally fast rate.
Snubber Ring and Damper Pad & Tube Wear Pads
A snubber rings is an option that reduces the vibrating of Miele washing machines during spin cycles. It’s usually in the bottom of your machine and acts as an insulator between the tub support and base. Wear pads for tubs and snubber rings are typically made of hard plastic. Certain damper pads are made of lubricated feel. Each style will eventually wear out and allow the tub to move excessively. They could also wear down until the tub support is in contact with the base of the metal washer. In these situations the washer might shake violently. How to check the damper pad within the Miele washing machine:

Tub Dampening Strap
Top load washers that have tub dampening straps can be used to cushion tub movements during spin cycles. Four straps hold the tub’s corners and top. These straps are made of rubber and wear down with regular use. If the straps are stretched out or damaged, the tub might get into contact with the cabinet during the spin. The washer will be able to shake, move, and create a loud banging sound. The excessive use and the heavy load could cause strain on the straps and cause premature failure. How do you check the tub dampening buckle on the washer.
- Begin by disconnecting the washer. After that, remove the outlet from the washer and locate the tub dampening straps.
- Each strap will be connected to the wash tub, and also to one corner of the cabinet. Examine the tub dampening straps for any signs of fraying, wear or any damages.
- You’ll need four replacement tub dampening straps if you notice any of these symptoms. Because they wear at approximately the same speed and wear at the same rate, it is recommended to replace all four straps in one go.
