Question about Washing Machines
My now 15 year old miele novotronic w830 has started making a terrible banging noise sounding like the drum is hitting the back of the casing when on its spin cycle. This time however it has stopped spinning completely the load is not too heavy, has my machine died or can it be fixed and at what cost?

SOURCE: Clanking noise during spin cycle
I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.
Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

sounds like the drum is rubbing on some part of an exterior wall of your washer,.or you have a bearing going, or worst case scenario you have transmission problems and need to get a serviceman in to check your machine.But firstI would call the manfacturer and explain the problem they may be able to resolve it over the phone give them model no. Make and year of manfacture they hopefully can help you with this

I have a 1998 model and the tub bearing was the problem with the same symptoms you have provided. I purchased a replacement (genuine Maytag) outer tub in 2007 and that fixed the problem. The old bearing was pulverized. The tub was 239.65. I got the parts from "Repairclinic.com>" I also replaced the door boot for 57.80. Today my spin/agitation cycles quit! The belt is ok but I haven't looked beyond that.
