  Washing Machine Suspension Parts

The dampers and springs on your washing machine are designed to absorb the vibration of your washing machine as the load moves around inside the drum.

Normally you will see two dampers or shock absorbers mounted to the bottom of the tub or tank unit and two springs at the top that are mostly there to keep the tub unit from drifting out of position. In essence the dampers or shocks do all the work, the springs are really only there for support.

On more expensive models you will often find three or even four shock absorbers fitted but, in our experience, while not unknown to go wrong, these will rarely fail.

Of course dampers can go faulty and they do as they can be very hard worked but one of the big reasons that we see them failing is from machines being subjected to higher than normal use or, because they have been overloaded and therefore overworked. If yours do fail please try not to overload your machine and they probably will not fail again.

You can find more about correctly loading your washing machine in this article and, not only will you not cause harm or wear your machine out just as fast, you will get better wash results as well.

  Ordering Replacement  Dampers

Dampers will vary, sometimes a fair bit, between different models as there are different tank sizes to accommodate either larger or smaller load sizes so the dampers have to alter to take account of this.

What we normally find is that the shock absorbers are specific to a range of machines that will normally all share a common drum and tub unit but that cannot be guaranteed in every instance.

If you don’t see the model number of your washing machine or washer dryer listed or, there are any notes about different shocks or springs being used, please contact us for assistance to identify the correct dampers you need. Putting the wrong ones in your washing machine can cause great harm to your machine so you do want to ensure you get the correct ones.

Electrolux spare partsElectrolux is a brand that is the second largest appliance maker in the world and it owns many brands, some used only in certain areas of the world and to find spare parts you will often require the Product or PNC number shown on the rating plate as it is not uncommon for there to be multiple variants of any appliance. This can range from one or two variants to over thirty making this in some instances not just nice to have but, absolutely essential.

This is why you will often find spare parts used on other brands within the Electrolux Group or, that have been produced by them when they are not generic to many.

All the group products work the same way thankfully making it a little easier and you can find out more and if you need it, you see an example of the rating plate on our support site here

You can learn more about Electrolx, the history of the brand and more in this article on the site but the main brands that are covered for the UK are the following:

  • AEG
  • Electrolux
  • Zanussi

  • John Lewis (Most)
  • Ikea (Most from 2014 on)
