Indesit washing machine w 123 front load

The concrete weight block attached to front of drum has broken loose and i want to know if this can be re-fixed.
How do I get the front off the machine, or does the machine need to be lifted up from the casing, or dropped down?
Can I get a new block, or should I just scrap it?

You have to get to it somehow. Get two metal strips & just join the blocks by drilling and screwing.

The machine goes through cycle but drum not turning switched cycle and it worked for two washed then drum stopped again

I advise you to remove the motor, and check the brushes in the motor, and check for loose or broken wires at trhe same time.
If brushes o/k, then it is probably going to be something more serious.
This being the case, then it could faulty programmer or similar.
Hope this helps.

Indesit wil103 makes LOUD banging noise on spin cycle

The two dampers that fix to the outer drum casing have plastic bushes that can fall out. Check the floor under the machine, They are easy to replace just click in place.

Dancing washing machine

Check that the washer is level , and that there is no movement on it.
Make sure you have not overloaded it.
An out of balance load could cause problem , especially if you had something heavy or extra large in it..
A loose concrete balance weight., or suspension spring unhooked or broken..
Not draining properly ,check filter if there is one usually at front behind removable cover at bottom.
Plz rate my solution.

Very loud banging noise when spinning

sounds like a balance problem may be when the drum was replaced they didn't fit the new drum in the correct spot the other thing that would cause load banging and excessive vibrations in the machine is if the shockers are worn out,
believe it our not even washing machines have shockers to dampen the movement of the drum spinning

Creda IWD12 makes noise when spinning but still works ok

Either a concrete balance weight is loose or broken, or the main drum bearings are worn. Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels noisy or rough, then it is the main drum bearings that have failed.

Banging washing machine on spins

Hi. I don't know if your problem has been sorted yet, if it has not ,then it sounds to me llke the concrete balance weight is loose or broken

There are 2 of them, one in the top of the m/c, and one at the bottom, if either of them are loose, then that is your problem.

If loose, can be tightened up, if broken away from the drum then you have a major problem

Severe drum? shaking and display lights flicker during spin cycle

Loose mounting points or broken pins. If not that then possibly drum shaft could be cracked.

Three day old Indesit washing machine

Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.

Knocking noise on spinning

it may cause more damage to other damper/suspension components if used. confirm exact fault- also check concrete weights for security.

Indesit WA105 - drum is loose and fails to spin

Hi Jezzer69 It is repairable but will take about 3 -4 hours (if you know what your doing) and the parts will cost about 65% of what a new machine will cost. You need to weigh up how old the machine is and or if its "beyond economical repair" Regards
