Question about Ariston Technologies AWD120 13 lb. Washer / Dryer Combo
My Ariston Margarita 2000 has run out of warranty and it started making very loud 'clonking' noises when spinning out a few weeks ago. I have just had the machine on and during the spin the noise got even louder and is more like a scrapping/grinding. I turned the machine off and emptied it. When I now turn the drum manually it is grinding against the outer drum and seems to have dropped down. My guess is that the bearings have gone? The machine works well in all other respects, but I am wondering if it worth calling a repair company or just calling it quits and getting a new machine? Any advice/ideas?
Many thanks :-)
Remove drum drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if there is any resistance,. or it feels rough or noisy, the the main bearigs have probably failed.
If it is o/k then check motor for worn or noisy bearings,
Please rate my solution.
