Question about Danby DWM5500W-1 Energy Star 1.69 Cu.Ft. Front Load Washer
The drum turns with great difficulty. a bushing or support has failed on the inside drum. The motor and belt are fine. how do you disassemble to get to the inside tub? do you have to remove the entire tub and disassemble the entire machine above the tub? Thanks.

If the "Spinning Off" button is pushed in you will get this problem.
It happened to my wife last week.
If the drum is turning the belt is OK

Most likely this will be the drum bearings.
Bearings normally last quite a long time but some will fail sooner than others. Quite often bearing failure is due to a faulty drum shaft seal which allows a small amount of water through and in to the bearings. The bearings then start to rust, which then accelerates the wear on the bearings.
Replacing the bearings needs well above average DIY skills to do, so unless you feel confident to tackle the job, can get hold of a tech manual, and can get hold of new bearings, it's time to call an engineer.

HI. If the timer dial dose not advance, this will indicate that the timer motor has failed. Generally, this will require you to have this damaged timer mechanism replaced, asap. Unfortunately, these mechanisms are not designed to be repaired. The entire device must be replaced, if possible.
