Question about Danby DWM5500W Front Load Washer
My front load danby just started sounding like a helicopter during spin cycle. Have had unit 4 1/2 years and no problem until now. Everything looks good inside ie. stabilizers.
Most likely this will be the drum bearings.
Bearings normally last quite a long time but some will fail sooner than others. Quite often bearing failure is due to a faulty drum shaft seal which allows a small amount of water through and in to the bearings. The bearings then start to rust, which then accelerates the wear on the bearings.
Replacing the bearings needs well above average DIY skills to do, so unless you feel confident to tackle the job, can get hold of a tech manual, and can get hold of new bearings, it's time to call an engineer.
