Bosch wfk 2800 drum makes a noise when turned around

When drum turns around it makes a noise as metal on metal, however this only happens with the drum in one particular position. I hear the noise when machine is empty and I turn the drum around by hand. I already removed a thin pice of metal from the pump compartment, so I wonder if there may be more metal strips in the machine, but I do not know how to get in the machine between the drum and the cover around the drum.

When you rotate the drum by hand slowly does it feel bumpy and still make a noise? If so suspect the bearings on the drum to be the culprit. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Terrible scraping noise from drum,what is it?

more likely there is a bra wire caught between the inner drum and outer tub, possibly wrapping itself around the element in the bottom.

leaks could be from anywhere. remove the top and back cover, put on a cycle and try to trace where leak is. sorry if this is not very helpful. water in filter should not smell. this may be due to using liquid detergent which causes a smell like drains if used over a period. put on a boil wash and revert to using powder

SOURCE: Bosch Classixx 1200 Express - metal got under the drum

If the obstruction is between the drum inner and outer then you may have to remove the rubber door seal to gain access. ISOLATE THE POWER FIRST. The problem with disturbing seals is that they may no longer seal when replaced! - Particularly if the machine is a few years old.
Probably best to leave it to a guy with a van full of spares.

SOURCE: Cannot remove pump filter cover -Bosch Exxcel 1400

Before removing the filter have you drained the excess water with the drain hose to the left of the filter? The filter cap should turn around 1/4 to 1/2 turn so the best option is to close it again and then repeatedly try opening it with a little more force each time. The black plastic cage could affect the removal of the filter and once removed if it is damaged you may need to replace it. These are available via most domestic appliance spares stores or directly from Bosch. Once removed check for any black plastic debris in the filter housing and chamber.

Loud nocking noise in spin cycle?


DRYER MAKES NOISES.

A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises
Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.

The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.
The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.

CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum

Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

The blower:

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.

The bearings:
The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.
The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.

The drum rollers or castors:

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.
Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

Making a noise when spinning


Probably somethins stuck around the outside of the drum. Usual cause is the metal parts from bras or something similiar. With machine switched off and unplugged turn the drum manually and see what happens. If still noisy something like above is stuck.

Our dryer has a metal on metal sound when the drum turns. just started making the noise...one load it was fine, the next, this awful sound


It could be that the felt seal that runs around the end of the tub is worn out or a bearing. Also it could be that some change has gotten between the drum and frame. I've had this to happen to me several times. Just dont know how it gets between the drum and frame, but when I took it apart I found money in there
