Repair manual for 7kg eco wash system ewf1074?

Replacing the bearings is a comprehensive job and requires expertise and a lot of time.
First of all should estimate which parts should be replaced.
These are certainly the following parts: "Ball bearing - 25x52x15",
"Ball bearing - 30x62x16", Seal of drum shaft - 35-62 and besides them should be reviewed the state of drum shaft.
After a thorough review, you should estimate whether the repair cost or cheaper to buy a new washing machine.
First of all, I recommend that you look the tutorials on the following links:

Something's stuck or the motor has something (a bearing, a regulator circuit, an idle wheel) bad; take it apart, test the cap out of circuit if it's old enough, and spin the mounts to find the fouled bearing (and replace that.)

Electrolux front load washing machine ew10001 spin cycle slow on "SPIN" setting runs fine through regular wash setting? any ideas?

Hello jamespeattie - Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

Before replacing the drum the drum bearing you should also inspect the heat element since when the bearing shears off its not that uncommon for the drum to fall onto the heater shroud and also break the heat element

Drum is leaking in our Frigidaire GLTF1670ASo Washing Machine. Is it worth fixing a 9 year old washer with this problem, I am thinking of buying a new washer. Please advise.

With nine years your machine reached an age that I consider close to end-of-life. Frigidaire / Electrolux boasts 25 years of warranty to some parts, but don't count on it. They'll enforce handling by an authorized service partner, upfront payment of several hundred dollars and eventually refuse refund due to too hard water in your area or they'll blame you of using unsuited detergents, all after two months of processing.

Leaking drums for these machines are quite common as they put together unsuited metals, in this case an aluminum extrusion spider in the back of the inner drum and steel parts elsewhere. Corrosion and leaking is pre-programmed.

Our Electrolux washing machine of model Aquashower 800 , spinner not working properly. Drum seams to be shaking and gives sound of friction.

if the noise your describing is a grinding rumbling sound when you turn the drum it is likely the main drum bearing have failed. you can usually detect play in the bearing by lifting the drum and seeing what movement there is compared to door seal area .1mm is the maximum 2mm would give 6mths to 12mths 6mm failure imminent.

The drum has started making a noise an appears to be free-er than usual

Remove top cover and look at outer drum, if it is plastic, then it is a complete stripdown of m/c, not recommended unless you really know what you are doing.
If it is a metal outer drum, then it can be done from rear of washer, without too much hassle.
If you are in the u/k, and you need spares, then go to,
Plz rate my solution.

Very noisy drum

To replace the bearings, you need to replace the whole backside of the outertub. Pretty difficult!
