SOURCE: the drum will not rotate

I did the same thing this morning... It was going to take a couple of days before repair technician was going to be able to repair it. So, I took the back cover off, and the idler pulley tensioner spring had fell off (that was the sound you heard... Then, I had to re-index the belt back to its groove on the drum. When I did that, I realized that the idler pulley had to be pulled all the way to the right and actually held the belt around the drive pulley. Hope that helps someone.

Clunking noise and drum gets stuck


It sounds like your washer needs an overhaul . A new tub and bearings it's a big job with a big price tag.

Washer motor / gear makes a clunking sound after running a while ,sounds like something breaking up.Small 6 inch disc under motor maybe the problem. Otherwise runs great. Just when washing,noise is heard.


Hi, could be drum bearing wearing down.the disc you found sounds like the outter ring of it.just reduce your load if you want get more life out of m/c.the bearing will have to be replaced if you want to continue using this m/c. to check, with power disconnected,rotate the drum slowly by hand---if you feel a gritty feeling in your hands,then its the bearings. was this helpful? regards paig

CLUNKING NOISE - SOMETHING TRAPPED BETWEEN INNER & OUTER DRUMS?


Yes, there is something trapped between the inner and outer drum, you could try removing the sump hose from the bottom of the drum, this will give you more room to fish about than possibly removing the heater. If you do remove the heater, you may not get it back in, then you will have to fit a new one.
The sump hose is the large hose fastened to the bottom of the outer tub.

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.


I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken

Grinding noise when drum rotates


may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.

Wm noisy


drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing

Drum makes a clunking sound when rotating, even when empty


This machine has roller wheels in the front that are not adjustable, but rather need to be replaced if they have a bad spot or something. Usually what I see with a clunking noise(clunks once or maybe two quick clunks in succession) is that the dryer has been set down hard on the ground and has put two dents in the roller surface of the drum. To check this, just unplug it, pop the top off (3 screws in the back and tilt it up) and look at the very front edge of the drum. rotate the drum by hand (carefully so you dont pop off the belt) and look for any imperfections in the suface, such as dents. If you are getting more of a vibration type of noise, I would also suggest taking off the lower front cover then taking of the blower wheel cover located to the left side and checking that there is no lint built up in the blower wheel as well. Good Luck!
