Question about Smeg WDI12 Front Load Washer / Dryer

Loud noise coming from machine

I have a Smeg WDI 12C washer/dryer and it's starting to make a lot of expensive sounding noises.

it can be fine for periods and then the noises start again. I initially thought it was the teeth on the motor that had worn as generally it wont spin when these noises happen. I've only had it 18 months so should the motor be packing in as soon as this?

If it is the motor what sort of price would it cost for a new part?

Re: Loud noise coming from machine

I would say its the bearings in the drum rather then the motor,that would be expensive over $200?

Hi There Our Smeg S650 Washing machine makes a lot of noise whilst spinning. Just wondering what might be the possible problem & if that is something that could be fixed by us or better to call...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Any noise the washer makes while spinning usually is traced back to the motor drive ot the spin bearing. This is if it is only while spinning. It will make loud noises. You need to check the motor drive or the spin bearing. One of them is probably bad. The motor drive is what spins the arm. They can go bad or it might be the bearings.

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle

If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
