    if you grab the stainless steel drum and it freely moves up & down then the drum flange is ost likley gone. Part is about $200 from Sansung. The tub assembly has to come apart to replace. The bearing in the rear tub are usually gone also. Tie for a new machine.

My front door which opens outward freezes shut, how can I fix this problem?


Spray some cooking spray on the rubber seals around the car doors and then rub it with a paper towel. The doors freeze because of snow melting into the seals and freezing overnight; the cooking spray oils should protect against that melting water. You can try also some silicone spray.

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.

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.

Drum stopped rotating at end of cycle smell burning rubber


There are two likely reasons for the rubber smell - either the drum belt has melted and snapped or the drum seal has rubbed too much and melted. Most likely cause would be poor drum bearings or consistent overload of washing. I am assuming this is a front loader as you have not provided any details of make or model.

Washer maytag front loading 4000 series assembled and runs but iwith two problems.1) residue on inner surface of door window..lint like oily paste ..gasket rubbing on inner drum?? meaning main rubber


The fault seems to be that the main seal is rubbing against and is thus producing the oily residue on the window. Now the fault seems that the drum is rubbing due to POOR ALIGNMENT or poor BEARING settings.
You need to check the PLAY on the drum and if this shakes a bit then the assembly must be reset with correct aligment and the drum must move without rubbing the rubber seals.

How can I clean the melted rubber seal from a Bialetti Top Espresso Machine?


I scraped off as much melted rubber as possible - using my thumb nail - then used a product called Goo Gone to melt the remaining rubber. I put Goo Gone on an old cloth and rubbed off the remainder of the rubber - again with my thumb nail.

Black marks appearing on towels. Look like marker, smudged.


hi.
it could be the seal on the front of the drum starting to break down.
clean the seal at the front of the drum that seals the door. then rub a white cloth/towel around the seal

if there are any marks left by the seal then the rubber compouds are starting to break down and the seal needs to be replaced.

please feel free to ask for detailed instructions on changing this seal if you need them

I have a Whirlpoool 6th sense front loader. The drum is constantly rubbing against the front rubber seal which constantly whines and screams. Is there an easy fix???? We reported this to the service centre...


Few things to check as the gap tollarance between the drum and rubber seal is small. Open door and turn drum by hand. Look carefully and see if the drum has an uneven wobble which is touching the rubber. If it has, you need to send the machine back or frplace the drum. Sometimes the rubber is installed slightly off centre which alters the correct rotation gap. Seal would need to be removed and realligned correctly.(I would check the drum for any signs of not being truly round)

Smoking washing machine


Switch it off before you burn your house down

The drum support sounds to have either cracked or come loose allowing the drum to run on the door gasket

The friction will cause the rubber to melt and burn hence the smoke.

Get a service person out to it asap
