In this article, we will tell you why you need crosspiece for washing machine samsung, Bosch and others, what is its meaning and how it works. It will also be described below how, in which case, to repair the cross.
Modern washing machines from such companies as Samsung, Bosch, Indesit, LG are very popular in Russia and the CIS countries due to their quality and manufacturability, as well as ease of washing. But more and more often the question arises that the more expensive the car, the more expensive its maintenance and repair. This applies in particular to the brands Indesit and Bosh, as for many years they have shown themselves to be the best, which suggests that their equipment is naturally not cheap.
One of the most important parts of any washing machine is the drum. After all, it is there that washing takes place — the process for which this machine was created. The rotation of the drum is carried out by a bearing assembly, which, in turn, is attached to the cross. The drum itself rests on it. A faulty crosspiece can lead to sad consequences, depending on the damage to the latter. Most often, the crosspiece breaks due to high loads, and this entails a number of other breakdowns, because. an automatic washing machine is a complex mechanism that includes not only parts and mechanisms, but also an electronic component. Also, a malfunction can occur when seals and bearings are worn, which are either poorly lubricated or made of soft and brittle material.
In order to avoid breakage of the cross, you must carefully listen to the sounds that the working drum makes. Grinding, knocking, rustling of surfaces indicates that most likely the bearings have become unusable or the crosspiece itself has a deflection. If you hear similar or extraneous sounds coming from the drum, you should immediately stop the operation of the washing machine and contact a specialist. The crosspiece itself is inexpensive, and there is plenty of it in warehouses, but disassembling and repairing the drum is painstaking and expensive work. Also, if you have sufficient experience and the necessary knowledge, you can fix the car yourself.
Crosspiece for washing machine Samsung not much different from the crosses of cars from LG, Bosch, Indesit and other popular manufacturers. The cardinal difference is in the drums and their orientation relative to the surface, they are horizontal and vertical. But vertical ones are more popular, so we will talk about them.

If the problem is not in the cross itself, but in the “flying” bearings or seals, which greatly simplifies the task. This applies to Bosch and Indesit washing machines. Most often, it is not the cross of the drum that breaks, but the secondary parts. Naturally, the details must be original, because. The manufacturer does not take responsibility for damage otherwise.

- next comes the installation of new seals;
- after the seals, the new bearings are installed and pressed in.
