Re: Drum is stuck

Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub. Open washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port. keep a rag nearby to dry up spillage of water when removing the rubber host. Good luck !!

Washer makes a rattling noise when spinning


If its rattling check the drum for anything caught in it.Washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)

Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.

Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.

Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.

Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

If you remove the drain hose from sink, drop it down low into a bucket,this will gravity drain and allow you to open the door to remove clothes, clunking could be object stuck in the drum or the pump even,at worst Drum bearing failure..Good luck

Hi,my haier washing machine is making a terrible noise when the wash cycle goas on spin and then the drum is hiting the door causing it to spark it sounds as if somthing is stuck between the drum and the...

Sounds like bearing and spider have gone, spider is the support on the drum which goes through the tub. then the wheel fits onto it. Open the door and see if you can lift the drum, if the drum lifts with a clunk or with ease then this will confirm the problem

Metal (wire?) stuck in rotating drum cavity.

Firstly, you can carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum. If you're really lucky the object may poke thru one of the holes enough for you to grab with a pair of pliers. Try turning the drum back and forth to catch the object in the holes. If this doesn't work you can take the sump hose off on the bottom of the outer tub. If all else fails you may have to remove the heater element and more than likely that's where the object is stuck. (Please ensure if you do not but a new element in use some petroleum jelly or washing liquid to get the old element back in, or you may solve one problem but create a leak). Also, when refitting element be sure that it is sat under it's internal bracket or the drum will scrape on it when it turns.
Hope this helps
ps I'm betting evens that it's a bra underwire!

How do i get into the cabinet to remove an obstruction from outsi

hi from uk if the object sounds as you say between outerdrum and wash drum ? may i suggest you unplug machine and disconnect water supply pipes then remove the rear panel this will give access to the main drain hose from bottom of outer drum which also connects to drain pump this hose is rubber and held usually with circular spring clips each end ? remove hose and you may be lucky the offending item/s?? will be resting hopefully near hole? if you use a piece of wire coat hanger you may /will locate item at the bottom of drum with a little patience? and you never know thge mysterious missing sock ? bra wire/ or the thong ? sure you've heard this b4 ? ps with rear panel off you can also rock the drum and listen for item's location ? and with hose off you can check pump for debri/fluff too hope this helps best wishes

Some object stuck in my machine


If the m/c has a filter at the front, check that first, if there is nothing there, then there is not much else you can do at this stage, hopefully the object will find its way into the filter

Hi.. hope you can help me.. I have a year old Zanussi ZWF1221W - my dear daughter put in a wash without emptying her pockets and something (a hairgrip or bra support) is now stuck between the drum and the...

It sounds like it's actually stuck between the bottom of the agitator and the basket (assuming you've got an agitator). The top of the agitator is usually for bleach or maybe it's fabric softener. Pop off the top (like the lid off of a can) and that should expose a nut or bolt in the center of the agitator. Remove this bolt (make note of how tight it was just after you've broken it free) and lift to remove the agitator. Remove any foreign objects and feel free to clean up anything else down there. Replace the agitator and tighten the bolt approx as tight as it was when you removed it (be careful not to overtighten). Snap on the top of the agitator and you should be good to go.

Washer wont spin belt came off put it back and tested on a spin but then it started making weird noises so we stopped it. turned drum manually but then drum jammed going one way but not the other

two possible causes. first - foreign object stuck between tub and drum. take heater out and you can peer into the gap between tub and drum second - bearings collapsed and im afraid this is the most likely cause. if memory serves me right, hotpoint supply a replacement tub and drum assembly at vast cost. lots of problems with bearings on the wma series
