Spin - loud noise - switched off - drum wont turn


I'm just hazarding a guess here, but it sounds like the bearings have gone (if you try to turn the drum by hand and it sounds noisy and grinding/crunchy then I think it would be the bearings). I'm certainly no expert though.

Spin Cycle is very loud on front load washing machine


See here
How to fit a Bearing in a Washing Machine | Appliance Repair Help

  • If a washing machine is rumbling, and very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
  • Loud noises when turning the drum by hand can also be caused if the drum itself splits, or the spider at the back of the drum has come away from the drum, is corroded or even broken. This would normally be a loud noise on each revolution of the drum whereas the noise when drum bearings have gone is constant all the time the drum is turning. Lifting the drum checking for excessive play can often reveal a broken or loose drum spider which sometimes only occurs at certain points round the drum (the spider has three arms and is bolted to the drum at three points)

Hi there my machine has gone very loud when spinning,washes perfect,any advice


Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front of the washer, if it feels rough, or is noisy or rumbling, then the the main bearings have failed.
A major repair!!!.

If you can move just the drum(not the whole tub). If the drum is "loose", the bearings are gone! I really dont know how to change them on this machine, but it is usually pretty difficult.

Drum is stiff


The bearings for the drum have failed and I reccondmend that you either get someone to do it or get yourself another machine.

The bearings can be replaced if your mechanically minded.... however this sort of job is best left to the experts...
