Question about Hoover HW130M Front Load Washer / Dryer

Drum spins for a bit then stops. Strange grinding noise and flashing.

The Drum of my Hoover washer/dryer spins for a bit then stops. There seems to be a grinding noise and when I took the back off and switched the drying mode on I noticed a strange flashing light from the motor, as though someone was welding from it the noise was obviously attributed to this as well. What do you think the problem is and how can it be fixed?

My dryer heats and dries, but when i open the door the drum doesn't stop nor does the light come on. We've changed the bulb...not the problem with the light. Also was squeekin quite a bit..now...


as far as the drum not stopping when door is opened that will be a bad door switch
the noise could be anything from a drum support roller to a blower wheel,the bearing on the motor,the rear drum bearing or even something such asa coin caught between the drum felt seal and the drum
nosies a hard to diagnose online since they dont sound the same in written form

LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.

Frigidaire combo washer/dryer screws inside come off


The drum shaft came loose from drum. You can YouTube it for procedure of disassembly of dryer. Remount shaft, if screws are bad may need new shaft with screws, make sure it is tight to drum. While you have it apart you can clean out lint.

I HAVE DRYER GE MOD #DWSR488EB2WW SER#ZG743601A ***HAVE GRINDING NOISE. RELPACED THE BEARING IN THE BACK. BELT SEEMS OK. PUT BACK TOGETHER NOISE CONTINUED. THE NOISE HAS A SLIGHT GRIND/SCRAPE IN ONLY PART...


The most likely cause is the front drum supports. There are 3 or 4 teflon strips (about a half inch wide and 2 inches long) on the top of the front panel that the dryer drum glides on. When these wear down, the drum can scrape on the plastic that holds them or on the metal frame around the door frame. Another possibility is if the drum touches the dryer exhaust vent pipe, most often only if the dryer is vented out the bottom of the dryer and the vent pipe has shifted up just a bit, allowing it to contact a spot on the drum with each revolution.

I had a problem and when they took the back off. Underwire bra had got jammed through drum holes which stopped it spinning and water issues. I hope this might help.
