Bosch Maxx WFL2061 Scraping sound when rotating the drum

Hi - Out of the blue the machine has developed a scraping sound when I rotate the drum. Otherwise it works fine. Can you please assist? Will it completly fail soon? I have exactly the same problem. When I took the lid off the machine to have a look, everything is encased in a plastic drum so to go further looks like a complete dismantle.

Sounds like a bra wire, probably stuck around a heater try placing bright torch under the machine and have a look in the drum to confirm, a bright torch should shine through the plastic and give you an idea of what it is. also check the holes in the drum for damage any raised holes could tear clothes during the wash.
If it is a bra wire, the easiest way is to remove is to remove the heater (it usually tangles here) but taking the heater out can break the seals you may have to replace the whole heater (£15-20) when replacing the old heater rub a little fairy liquid on the rubber seal. and when fitted put the machine on a rinse this is the highest water setting if it is going to leak it will leak then just have a few towels and a quick hand to turn the machine off incase it leaks.

My washing machine's drum is making a scraping sound when turning


Hello,
There are two different types of "drum balancers" manufactured into washing machines today... One is a disk type (most washers with this have 2-6 depending on age, manufacturer, and quality), the other type is a self-balancing style. It sounds like you need to order some new drum balancers. The repair will take approxmiately 1-3 hours depending on if the it is a front or top-loading machine.
Hope this helps, James

If you rotate the pulley on the back of the drum does it rotate the drum? i have seen these snap the back of the drum off. also they can have issues with the controller board for the motors which would require a technician to determine.

DRUM WILL NOT ROTATE AND WHEN MOVED BY HAND MAKES A SCRAPING NOISE


the drum belt is broken and this lets the belt tensioner ride on the motor shaft which gives you the scraping noise,you need to remove the front and top cover to replace the belt

No drum action from my Bosch Maxx for Kids


Hi, How old is your maxx? Have you ever experienced this before?
This is quite a common problem and can be sorted quite cheap to. You will need to take the back off depending on which model you have to access the motor! Take the motor off and then we can sort the problem.....
