    Thanks barkencoa for such a quick reply anyway sounds fine when i spin it by hand and dont seem to have any movement or any other problem other than when its spinning really fast even then it sound like something is being forced round the drum,then every now and again the noise goes for a few seconds but drum still spins ok.I was just wondering if my young children could have left a car or something in there somewhere somehow?

Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone, if you hold the the drum and can feel up and movement or it sounds noisy or rough when you turn it by hand then it is definately bearings gone.
Unless you know what you are doing ,I would not recommend a D.I.Y. repair.

    Hi Hiker1.

    I would definately say there is something in outer container from what you say, with a bit of luck it will find its way into filter.

On spin cycle sounds like change or rocks spinning around in drum.

Could be a bad bearing or something loose on the drum that doesn't rattle until you get up to spin speed. Look for something like pins, nails or screws stuck in the holes of the drum, or possibly under the protuberances (fins) inside the drum. Does the sound occur all through the spin cycle or only at top speed?

Washing machine banging noise

It could be the main shaft on the drum or misalignment. There is some flexibility, but not a lot. Check for worn belts, pulley wheels, and other attachments.

Final high speed spin very noisey

Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

My AEG L avamat W1450 go through the full cycle but when it comes to spinn it drains the water but does not spinn the washing I cleaned the filter . no effect

There are a number of possible reasons. Try these options (listed in the order of easiest to hardest).

1. The machine is over filled. Try taking some items out then selecting the spin again.

2. The load is unbalanced. Try moving the items around then select the spin again.

3. Something is blocking the outlet. At the front of the machine (usually bottom right hand corner) there is a trap / filter. Remove and clean.

4. The outlet hose is could be obstructed. Check it is not bent / blocked.

5. The motor brushes could be worn. These are simple and cheap to replace for a DIY'er. Tip: You could remove the brushes then stretch the sping before refitting. This may give you enough life whilst waiting for replacements to arrive.

6. The pump may be blocked on the drum side. Find the hose that connects the drum to the pump and check it is not blocked.

If these don't work, try spinning at a lower speed (e.g., 700 or 900).

My AEG Lavamat W 1000 runs properly but won't spin

a little late to solve your problem...if it ever happens again, change the 16 micro farrad capacitor in the upper rear right corner of the machine. This capacitor controls the starting torque in any motor mode

Further to your prob with washer, I would be inclined to think that there is a foreign object in the drum.Hopefully it will find it's way in to the pump filter.I don't think it will cause a problem
Merry xmas.

Probably the motor is broken. Or the tachometer is loose from the motor.
