What is the problem if the machine makes a horrible grating sound when the drum is turning?

The cycle continues but the drum appears to be struggling to turn. There is no error code showing up.

Good morning to you
If you have the manual look under the heading troubleshoot.
the link here helps you find your manual, if your own is not handy.
it could be that the ball bearings are broken.
This sounds like a serious problem contact a repair man as soon as possible. Do not use the machine until you have found out what is wrong with it.

brushes are easy replacement.......just make sure you get correct 1`s there are 3 or 4 differt types you need motor make................then look at the brush holders...... these will be white, black, or brown. held in by 2 screws...or a clip at the side of the holder......then just buy replacements............total time about half an hour........

1. Too much vibration on spin cycle even on


loud rumbling noise when running, unplug it, take the rear cover off and remove the drive belt. Then turn the inner drum by hand. If there is a grating noise, the bearings will almost certainly need replacing.
drain port take out and give a very good clean with warm water and makes sure all the holes are cleaned right through

Hi my machine wma20 makes noise when it start spining. the noise is horrible as lots of bricks are moving along the cycle? how to fix it plz? i have already open it but i dont know how to open the drum...


Remove belt and turn drum by hand, if it is noisy, or feels rough, then main drum bearings have failed.
This a major repair, and not one I would recommend that you do yourself, it involves a complete stripdown, and is quite expensive.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

The washer makes terrible noise when it spins


do you mean up and down? or when you turn the drum like you are spinning it?if it makes a sound like an airplane takeing off or a train rolling through your house. you have a bad bearing which is a very exspensive repair.

Aquarius WF 320 Noisy Drum


Could be your bearings for sure. And if you have been using the machine while the racket continued......you could be ruining you axle as well. So make sure your axle is fine before you change your bearings.......
