If you mean the inner drum - remove the agitator, pull off the sofetener cup and remove the 15mm bolt down inside to remove agitator, then secure inner drum to center bearing.
If you mean the outer drum, check the holding down springs visually, remove the front panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then remove 2 small bolts to remove front panel.
Also check and replace drive belt, tilt machine backwards to gain access underneath.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer dirty rubber drum seal

its a matter of removing the front retaining wire and the inner one which holds it onto the drum, an easy enough job to get off, sometimes a pain to get the inner off and on depending whether it s the screw or clamp type , screw=easy. to get the clamp off use a screwdriver to wiggle the bent wire out of the ratchet grooves. to put back is done with long nose pliers, preferably bent nose ones.

SOURCE: The rubber seal has come away from the inner seal

You would need a special adhesive glue made to withstand the heat! But I wouldn't try. Not even Red Green's Duct tape notion could bail this issue. You would have to replace the complete seal. And that...you're probably looking...around $30-50.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on the info you provided in your post, I'd suspect the rear tub/outer tub bearing has failed/worn out.

That in itself is bad enough, but worse is the bearing failing will cause much more collateral damage usually to the inner basket spider gear as well as the inside of the front part of the outer shell.

The reality is you can repair it, but you'll likely need to replace a great deal of parts such as what is shown here...
1) rear bearing outer tub assembly
macmarkus_465.jpg 2) front part of tub assembly. Part #3551ER0003H...no longer available according to "searspartsdirect.com"

3) Inner basket spider gear assembly
macmarkus_469.jpg And lastly, (but not necessarily) based on the info of the statment "There is a bit of rubber that has come down between the regular seal and drum" you may need the door bellows/gasket.

As you can begin to see there is alot involved. I can guide you step by step on "how to" both access this and repair it, but I think you'd be better served if I send you a complete service manual for your washer, it's up to you...whatever you think will best serve you.

You will need to provide an email address I can attach the "pdf" service manual to if you decide you indeed want it. I'll watch for your post and we can go from there.

Thank's for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

As it spins very slowly back and forth it also makes the grinding squeeking noise.


Hi Robert.
What you describe sound like a distorted drum and/or collapsed bearings. The grinding noise is typical of bearings which are worn out, and the squeaking can come from the drum rubbing on the door seal.
Check if the inner drum is loose and flops up and down. Also spin the drum by hand and see if it's touching the rubber door seal anywhere. If it spins freely but make a growling noise your bearings need to be replaced..
Neither of these situations are good. A serviceman is probably required to know for sure.
Good luck.

Check that drum (2nd below) is not rubbing on this door seal

LG WM 0642 HW Direct Drive Making a thumping sound when spinning and smells like burned rubber. Smoke coming out of durm when front load door was opened.


Hi Paul.
What you're describing is probably the inner drum rubbing on the door seal.
It could be because the rear bearing assembly has collapsed or because the drum is distorted.
Turn the drum slowly by hand and see if the gap between the rim of the drum and the rubber seal stays the same. This will tell you if the drum is 'round' or bent out of shape.
Alternatively, if the drum flops up and down inside the outer drum it would be because of bearing collapse
Either of these situations would require a service visit and parts.

Noisey drum


Hi, What machine have you got? Some machines you can remove the lifters to get inside the drum, or you maybe able to remove the sump hose, I normally take out the heating element and use a magnetic tool to get foreign objects out, be warned though sometimes you may not be able to refit the heater because the seal would have been compressed, and therfore would have to buy a new one, I recommend getting the top removed as using the machine with it in can result in a lot of damage.

We have a MMDE9206AYM model dryer that makes a low humming sound but will not start. Last night it also produced a burning smell. I assume either the belt is gone or the motor is overheating although it...


Sounds like drum is locked and motor is running and burned the belt. Try to spin drum by hand, Might check drum ends felt seals, Teflon bearing strips located on the bottom lip of front drum end for wear causing drag. Also check 2 drum support wheels to see if they spin freely, take the belt off motor pulley and spin drum by hand, if easier & motor runs drum is dragging. How is the spring on tensioner, does tensioner pulley spin free? Hope this helps locate the problem.

My washer was spinning, it made a loud noise and the drum dropped down in front


you left it go toooo long and the drum bearings in the rear area have finally given way,the "lip-seal" that keeps water out failed some time ago and now the bearing(s) also went,this may be quite a costly affair getting the old bearings out of the plastic outer drum bore,if its even savable,bearings and seal are cheap,appx $70.00 for these/the drum if damaged $500.00+/the drum spline and spider that holds the drum $150.00 /plus labor depending how bad

My Maytag Performa doesn't work on spin cycle. Burning rubber smell. Belt looks okay. Pumps out rinse water but drum won't spin.


Brakes are locked in the spin cycle or the pinion shaft has dropped down from within the transmission not to engage the agitator.

Drum spins off center and clothes get stuck between drum and casing


If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Washer squeals in rinse or spin


When the washer is in the final spin cycle and starts to sqeal, just pour a little water through the drawer about half of a glass full usually does the trick. What apparantly happens is that the connection/seal between the big grey rubber seal and the stainless steel drum has dried out due to the centrifugal effect of the spin cycle and it needs to be wetted to keep the sealed area lubricated and cool. The squealing is a result of the dry rubbing of these parts during the spin cycle.
