Drum sounds like it's rubbing against metal

My wash just finished and I have a rip in one of my skirts and the washer made very loud noises on the final spin. I emptied the drum of clothes and tried turning the drum, which sounds like it's rubbing against metal -I just would like to have more info on what is wrong before maybe ringing someone to come out and have a look, thanks.

Re: drum sounds like it's rubbing against metal

Hi there....sounds as if youve got a bra wire etc trapped between the outer and inner the appliance door and carefully examine the inner drum you will possibly see the offending wire protruding from some one of the holes in the can either be removed by juggling it out or having an engineer remove it for you regards Sir Galahad

While spinning, it made a loud noise but finished washing the load while continuing to make the noise especially while spinning fast.

Hi Chantal,
In my many years repairing Miele machines - the most common problem for what you are describing is the underwire from a bra has got in between the inner and outer drum. It's tricky to get out and can be done if you are good with tools and a little technical - but it does involve opening up the machine, removing one of the heating ellements and searching / fishing it out. Another less common reason for this rubbing noise could be the metal heater element bracket that also sits between the inner & outer drum, has bent - but this is normally caused by a bra underwire. Hope this helps.

Hello. Near the end of the spin dry cycle, the drum started to make a loud rubbing sound (12 minutes to go???). We shut down the washer, with a cancel, then restarted the load over again. This time we...

100% if its rubbing instead of freely rotating while you manually spin the drum your bearings have gone,You can't see it's all inclosed in a plastic shell & it is pretty much a complete rebuild pain in the neck job that you are going to recieve quote's of $500 buck's or more to do the job might be worth getting a new machine it would be more economical.GOOD LUCK

Loud noise during spin cycle, finding shreded plastic in drum.

Sounds like the support arms have failed and the wash drum is now rubbing against the outer tub. It is a expensive repair. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or to replace. Hope this helps.

GE Washer Tub has sunk and is grinding on bottom

I had the same problem and as near as I can tell, we ran a load the was simply too big and the upper chasis "droooped" just enough from the weight to cause the metal to bow. As a result, the bottom of the tub assembly was rubbing against the lower metal chasis, creating a loud grinding noise. Metal filings indicated the wear point. I took a piece of wood that is about 1"x3x height and wedged it in front and slightly to the left of the motor, running straight, up and down. the board stands straight to take out the bowing- lifting the tub about 1/4" more. This was just enough to provide the clearance needed to prevent grinding. If the vertival board is too long, you won't be able to get the front cover back on.

Hotpoint WD 865- washes ok, dryer won't work makes loud popping

sounds like the dryer heater element has worked loose perhaps and shorted out against the metal dryer box which sits on top of the drum.
best to get an engineer out i'd say.

Noise in my washer while agitating

Maytag have had some problems with the bases of the unit. If you open the lid and it is leaning to the right this is the problem. You have to change the base of the unit and the springs that come with it. This is the only correct fix, but is a costly one.

Broken washing machine

the machine water ceal and bearings must be changed before it spoil the drum.there is small metal under washer drum to give u sine noise if the drum unstable.and if you keep using the the machine,drum get demaged.mostly all front loading machines are like that.the test is,open back cover check if there is rust on the centre shaft,that means leaking throw the ceal and the door and try to list up the inner drum if plays means problem with bearings as above.
