My Beko WM1510W is working fine except for one thing when the drum spins there is an almighty rattle from somewhere inside. I have taken the back and top off, there is no extra movement in the machine,other than this rattle. I believe it might be the bearing, can anyone help?

Re: beko wm1510w bearing?
Hi there.....this rattle can usually be associated with failed or failing bearings.......simple test to follow....with machine switched off and door open...put your hand in and try lifting the inner wash drum...there should be NO MOVEMENT...movement indicates failing or failed drum bearings

sounds like your drive belt is damaged, it may have a small section stripping of the belt and hitting something in the machine as it turns.
take off the back and check the condition and replace as needed.
your pump is blocked,at bottom of machine there should be a flap with a round plug in middle .unscrew,it will have water come out so use a bowl or big towel.the impeller should turn freely,once plug is unscrewed at front put washer into a drain program see if the pump turns.if this is free youll need to get the pump off(unplug machine first)and then feel inside the big pipe from the drum to pump.it may have a sock or something like inside.this means it will work but wont get out all the water.also note when trying to spin a pillow,or big towel the load will be uneven so it will reduce its spin speed so it doesnt destroy its self

The brushes are inside the motor and run on what is called the commutator located at one end of the motor shaft.
It could be that the motor requires replacement unless it is the control board not powering the motor.
Now, a word or two of advice from a retired Englishman in SW France. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
