    More than likely you will need to remove the back panel to access thye drum assembly. It might be easier to figure out if you could get an exploded drawing of the parts and a parts list from the manufacturer on its web site.

Does that mean that the drum is jammed? if so you will have a job and a half accessing the drum and looking at its rollers as well as the drive mechanism to see if it is damaged... It probably got knocked off its guide rollers when you had your laundry unbalanced in the drum and it was banging around!

WBVH6240FWW loud bang


that would be the bearing and housing gone on the drum, if you can lift the drum with your fingers at the bottom of the drum in the door hatch even by putting lifting inside then the bearing has gone. the plastic is the drum.housing usually were the bearing housing is. if there is a lot of movement then the bearing has gone. usually the front bearing but you will need to remove the drum and separated the drum to remove the drum then the bearing, rust on clothing is the bearing as its the only part in the drum that is metal.

I believe you will need to replace the drum glides since the drum rollers are good:

I am having the same problem.
Did you find a solution.
Our washer is just a little over 2 years old and I am trying to decide if I should just cut my losses and never buy a GE product ever again.

Drum is stuck and does not move after a noiny spin. pls advice.thanks


Sounds like possibly the main drum bearings have seized.
To check, remove the rear panel of washer, remove the drum belt, and try to turn the drum by hand, if it is noisy or rumbling, or not turning at all, then likely the the drum bearings have seized.
This is a major repair, and could be expensive!!!

With the Kenmore series 80 Dryer plugged in, Pressing the start button causes the motor to hum as if the belt, pully or motor is frozen. The drum doesn't turn during the humming and is difficult to turn...


You'll need to remove the back panel and determine the cause. Look for:

Seized drum support rollers (3)
Seized drive and/or idler pulleys
Burned out or seized motor
Possible bad motor start capacitor (if equipped)
Drum alignment

Hotpoint WF740 Aquarius Plus Drum Seized.


hi the code will flash that because of the drum being seized in my opinion the bearings have seized to replace them you will need to remove the front of the machine disconnect all the wires from the drum not the machine there are two plastic pegs holding the suspension legs to the drum which you will need to remove. push the pins in at the backof the pegs and pull out the pegs,sorry you will need too remove the two concrete blocks top/bottom first, then remove the pegs lift out the drum remove the fixings around the drum with a t-30/t-40 bit,then split the drum now comes the tricky bit - AT THE BACK OF THE DRUM IS A 13MM BOLT UNDO THIS ONE TAKE OFF THE FLY WHEEL AND THEN REPLACE THE BOLT HIT THIS BOLT AS HARD AND AS CLEANLY AS YOU CAN WITH A LARGE HAMMER SO THE STAINLESS STEEL DRUM COMES OUT THEN YOU NEED TO GET THE OLD BEARINGS OUT THESE CAN BE A PIG SOMETIMES SO DONT GIVE UP THEN REPLACE WITH NEW ONE'S PUT BACK TOGETHER IN REVERSE ORDER.hope this helps if you can think you can do it it's not as bad as it looks ,good luck
