Question about Washing Machines
Indesit Top-load washing machine. The drum is stuck in upside down position and won't turn or move by force. The clothing is inside. The washing machine goes through a cycle - fills water and drains water - but the drum doesn't turn. It doesn't spin either. The engine makes the usual noises - but the drum is stuck?
Overloaded & unballanced has mabe pulled drum away from the rear bearing!
& jammed iself!
only way now is to disconnect power & water & undo cabinet to inspect it!

I had an issue with my Electrolux top loading washing machine where the drum got stuck with the drum dor facing the bottom and manged to fix it as follows: Opening the side panel of the washing machine showed that the belt fell off as well.
The heater element in this machine is located on the bottom side of the drum casing just above the engine. I have removed the wires connected to the element, unscrewed the nut holding the element in place and removed it. From this I got access to the inside of the drum casing and could close the lid in order to turn the drum up again. Seems like this happened due too putting too much clothes in the machine so the door got opened when it reached the bottom position and got stuck on the heating element.
