Ansys Mechanical APDL (Beam on elastic foundations) Beam on springs

Please if you can solve my problem help me with Asys Mechanical APDL. I am trying to model a beam on elastic foundation, I have the springs and the beam, I do every thing correctly and yet I get a very funny shape for bending moment diagram. I think it is all related to contacts as I am not sure the way I make the contacts between the beam and the springs is right. Your help much appreciate it, I wouldnt mind to pay for it, if you think you can model a case similar to mine. Thanks in advance.
