Washing machine shock absorbers replacement

The appearance of noise and grinding during the washing process is a sign of malfunction of the washing machine, but it is not always possible to determine the nature of the breakdown without carrying out preliminary diagnostics. With a high degree of probability, the cause is the deformation or wear of shock absorbers.


It is these components are responsible for damping the vibrations during the operation of the machine. And if the machine noticeably vibrates, swings, and makes noise, then to eliminate the problem, you will most likely need to replace the shock absorbers of the washing machine. To order the service, just contact SAN DIEGO APPLIANCE REPAIR and get the service right at home.


Checking the condition of the shock absorbers

To be sure of the malfunction of shock absorbers, you need to unscrew the screws and remove the top cover of the machine (options are possible – depending on the model of the machine), and then slightly press the tank (enough to lower its position by a couple of or three centimeters). Then you should quickly remove your hand and monitor the changes. If the shock absorbers are good, the tank will return to its original position. If there is a fault, the tank will start swinging like a pendulum.


In the first case, additional diagnostics will be required to determine the fault. In the second case, you can bravely change the spare parts. In both situations, it is advisable to contact the specialized craftsmen who perform the repair of washing machines in San Diego. Independent attempts to resolve the issue often lead to trouble, and the risk, in this case, should not be taken.


Possible problems with shock absorbers

There are two reasons for the occurrence of the mentioned malfunctions. The first – is mechanical deformation due to overloading of the drum or as a consequence of violations of transportation rules. The second is the obvious wear of the fixing bolts and loss of fixation of shock absorbers during the operation of washing machines.


It is possible to check both versions in a few minutes, without resorting to the help of specialists. But even with an accurate determination of the nature of the problem, performing the repair of washing machines with your own hands is unlikely to succeed. Especially if we are talking about new models of such equipment.
