Problem turned out to be a leak from the top, not the bottom and was caused by debris blocking an overflow trap

SOURCE: Trouble with Indesit WI 102 washing machine

I had trhe same problem and was going deaf!!! I know this is probably too late for your machine but it may be usefull to someone else with this model.

Originally thought the bearings had gone but had great trouble trying to source some through UK websites so decided to strip the machine. Did this by touch (no manual!) and eventually found that the bolts holding the bottom weight to the drum had all come loose (all 3!). Trying to access them to tighten was the biggest problem as the front of the machine is welded on.

Managed the above by removing the rubber door seal from the door only and tightening two of the bolts from inside the door. The third I managed to access from beneath the machine. All were tightened using 10mm socket on a bar with extension (curtain pole!) slid over the end.

During this process I had the machine on its side, removed the securing brackets, top weight + springs and wedged the drum from beneath and the side as much towards the rear of the machine as possible to aid access.

Good Luck!

This may be a little late, but it may assist someone else. On my Kleenmaid top loader I found the agitator has clips at the bottom of agitator that clip over a drive hub at the bottom of the "tub" . All you have to do is gently prise it up using your fingers between the bottom of the agitator and the bottom of the tub.

IT IS TIME TO BUY A NEW WASHING MACHINE. IT MAY COST MORE, BUT TRUST ME, YOU WILL FEEL BETTER KNOWING YOU BOUGHT A NEW WASHER. THE KNOB ON THE OLD ONE THAT IS BROKEN, CAN BE REPLACED, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW. GOOD LUCK.

Kleenmaid top loader replace timer


Kleenmaid timers do fail from time to time. Reconditioned timers are a viable remedy and not as expensive as new ones. Depending on where in oz you are, a tech will have to sight the faulty timer to ensure the correct replacement unit. You can't rely on model number alone........Nomess

Drum noise


Good day.
Maybe there are coins left in the pockets that stucked within the drum during drain process. You can also check the bearing holder of your washing machine for this is also one of the reasons why noises occur during oepration

The plastic paddles in the drum on the later washing machines (WMA models) often come looseand come off altogether. They can be replaced. call them lifters. You usually insert a smallscrewdriver down one of the holes (it's the 3rd one on ) and gently press downwhile sliding the lifter out.
Washing trainers in a washing machine is reputedto damage the drum lifters and paddles inside the drum, particularly onnon-quality washing machines.
There are few types of drum lifter; drum Paddle lifters

On hotpoint, creda, Ariston ,indersit and someother makes see video
To fit new paddle, make sure the retaining lugis up slightly see video, line up the lugs on the paddle in the slots in thedrum, and push firmly with both hands towards the rear of the drum, you shouldfeel it click into place, make sure you fit it the correct way round and youare fitting the correct paddle lifter for your washing machine.

KleenMaid Washing Machine shop manuals/repair instructions


There are manuals available but these only tell you about the parts of the machine and the different cycles etc. Its a workshop manual that you need and these are not discussed anywhere on the net, Im not sure these were ever produced.
