at 12 years old , could be the bearings but it would be uneconomical to repair

Bosch front loader wfl2400 is making loud banging noise when in spin cycle. Sounds like drum has coming of its mounts.

your main bearing is failing. this is a mayor repair issue. you need to call a repair expert. the bearing are molded at factory and require special tools to install. if you try driving them in by hammering you will damage them or wont last 3 to 6 month. depending on how old and how much you paid for the washer you may consider replacing it.

The washer will no longer do the spin cycle. It makes a grinding type of noise. What might be wrong? How easy is it to take these machines apart? Thanks, Troy

Hi Troy from retired Englishman in France!

We have had a Bosch for 16-20 years (not sure exactly). Brushes wore down a few months ago causing intermittent running and F5 I think. I changed the motor (and belt whilst I was at it) as brush changing is really only a temporary measure- subsequent brushes tend to wear down very quickly. Cost me around £250 but still cheaper than a replacement machine (which is what 'Management' wanted!
Although Bosch washers are very well made and heavy, once the back is accessed the motor and belt are easy to see.
Drum speed is totally controlled by the electronics board feeding the appropriate voltage to the motor- in the same way clockwise and anticlockwise.

If you are reasonably confident [and competent;-0) ] I would suggest removing the back BUT OBVIOUSLY WATCH THAT POWER IS STILL ON and listen whilst it washes then spins.
Question- could there be a metal item sticking through the holes in the drum- or is it really a grinding sound- like a bearing failing? Is the washer old and used enough for something like that?
You should be able to tell by listening with the back off.

Comment: motor and/or belt change- easy; Bearings? I would suggest that depends on your mechanical abilities.
I purchase all my spares for whatever- washer, ride-on mower, Karcher pressure washer etc from the UK via the web.

Good luck,

John C

I have a 3200 and the drum bearing is noisey so i want to change it out. where can i get parts and how doese the drum come out. what kind of warranty comes with these washers. thanks

The bearing cannot be changed without replacing the entire drum. The drum can be obtained at Sears Part central for half what other appliance stores charge The front seal should be replaced as well, The replacement is fairly straightforward if you are still repairing this machine I can provide you with some hints.

Drum makes loud whinning noise when spinning at high rpms.

Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

Inner drum of my 7 year old washer WFD 2460 rattles on spin and seems unsupported. The rubber surround is intact, is it the only means to support the drum? Thanks. J.Reeve

Hi there!

I would say it is the rear drum bearing which needs replacement. This is what supports the load of the entire drum. The seal is just a water seal.

The good news is that it's a bosch, and replacements are easily available. You are lucky to get 7 years use without problems. Cheaper models give up after 12 months!

Check online for spares under the model number, or have it replacd by a local technician. It is the main drum bearing you need.

If this assists to a solution, Please take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.

Drum bearings,

if your machine is under 5 years old ...the machine is under warranty for parts only and is covered by hotpoint they will charge you for callout/ labour charge need your date of purchase proof or go by the manufacturing date code inside the door the first two digits of eight.... this month is 73 so deduct the first two digits from that number eg if the digits were say 43 take that from 73 hence 30 months old from production my guess is the machine is pehaps 2 years old typicall failing for that model... .for you to buy the parts and do it yourself major stripdown! will cost you the same as their (hotpoints charge) so i would call them hope this helps
