Re: indesit washing machine

First of all, what kind of a loud is it making?  Is it a loud squeak, clunk, bang, or jet engine sound?


If it is a loud jet engine sound, then your tumbler bearing is wearing out.  You could try oiling it, but [probably you will have to replace it.  It’s a big job and even if you do it yourself, the best and easiest way to do it is expensive.


I recommend first of all ordering a repair manual.  Or at least see if the parts come with detailed instructions on how to take out the old bearing and install the new.  You will probably have to replace the entire outer drum assembly.  It's much more expensive in parts to do it that way than to just replace the bearings and seals, but much much easier and faster.  Personally, I've replaced the entire drum assembly and also tried to replace just the bearings and seals.  In the end I wasted the money on the bearings and seals and got an new assembly.  I'd recommend just going for the new assembly and saving time.

The noise you can hear is the drum bearings, the seal between the drum and bearings has failed and let water into the bearings which has destroyed the bearings.

there maybe a coin or something stuck between the two drums, when the machine spins fast it lifts the item up, unplug the appliance and remove the botton drum hose to see if you can get it out.

The two dampers that fix to the outer drum casing have plastic bushes that can fall out. Check the floor under the machine, They are easy to replace just click in place.

Very loud banging noise when spinning

sounds like a balance problem may be when the drum was replaced they didn't fit the new drum in the correct spot the other thing that would cause load banging and excessive vibrations in the machine is if the shockers are worn out,
believe it our not even washing machines have shockers to dampen the movement of the drum spinning

Three day old Indesit washing machine

Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
