Aquarius WF 320 Noisy Drum

Could anyone please tell me why our machine is making an incredible racket during spin cycles and a grating sound while washing ? could it be the bearings ? If so is this an inexpensive repair as cannot afford to replace machine nor get ripped off for repairs ? Otherwise the machine appears fine except the last coupla uses it has tripped the fusebox. am putting this down to the excessive strain on machine. Would really appreciate your help on this one

    no noise during wash but it sounds like there is something against the metal drum when in spin.

Stop using your machine as it sounds like your bearings have gone completely as you say it also has tripped the fuse twice this is because there is so much play in your drum that it's most likely damabed your heater aswell. This now poses as a SHOCK or FIRE HAZZARD .If the macxhine is over 5 years old buy a new one as this fault will be very expense to repair

Could be your bearings for sure. And if you have been using the machine while the racket continued......you could be ruining you axle as well. So make sure your axle is fine before you change your bearings.......

Tilt washer back look around the motor. Big piece under tub. If you see mud or rust leaking out of motor you should replace this soon.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired


Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

Not spinning in high speed


possibly a faulty "off-balance" detector, but not sure...try to purposely make it go off balance during wash...maybe a few pairs of sneakers?
