Question about Danby DTT420 Top Load Washer
I have purchased a rubber seal for the spin drum but need a manual and to see the way the seal is put on the motor
SOURCE: Inner drum of my 7
I would say it is the rear drum bearing which needs replacement. This is what supports the load of the entire drum. The seal is just a water seal.
The good news is that it's a bosch, and replacements are easily available. You are lucky to get 7 years use without problems. Cheaper models give up after 12 months!
Check online for spares under the model number, or have it replacd by a local technician. It is the main drum bearing you need.
If this assists to a solution, Please take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.

its a matter of removing the front retaining wire and the inner one which holds it onto the drum, an easy enough job to get off, sometimes a pain to get the inner off and on depending whether it s the screw or clamp type , screw=easy. to get the clamp off use a screwdriver to wiggle the bent wire out of the ratchet grooves. to put back is done with long nose pliers, preferably bent nose ones.

I have the same washer, and have run it for some time without the wire. As long as you make sure the seal is seated when you close the door, it doesn't leak.
I have no idea about the mildew problem - never had that happen to mine.
