Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
LG WD-8026C 7Kg intellowasher drum is nosiey and stiff. The noise seems to be coming from the front ,near the boot, rather than the back at the belt or motor. Still turns by hand but the drum seems out of round when viewing from the front. The belt looks the right tension (an inch play?) and does not seem to be slipping. Tried to remove the heater to check for objects but could not budge it. Only took out the earth nuts? Not sure how to access the front to see behind the boot.
I guess the unit is 3 years old...just out of warranty...
Any tips would be fantastic..
If you remove the belt and turn drum by hand, it should revolve freely and without any noise.
If it is noisy or feels stiff, then you proabably have main drum bearing failure.
Could be expensive to put right
