Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

The drum seems to run crooked and rubs...

The drum seems to run crooked... It will turn for about 3/4 revolution - then it 'flops' against the rubber seal and rubs. Is it the bearings? How do I fix it?
Thanks

As it spins very slowly back and forth it also makes the grinding squeeking noise.


Hi Robert.
What you describe sound like a distorted drum and/or collapsed bearings. The grinding noise is typical of bearings which are worn out, and the squeaking can come from the drum rubbing on the door seal.
Check if the inner drum is loose and flops up and down. Also spin the drum by hand and see if it's touching the rubber door seal anywhere. If it spins freely but make a growling noise your bearings need to be replaced..
Neither of these situations are good. A serviceman is probably required to know for sure.
Good luck.

LG WM 0642 HW Direct Drive Making a thumping sound when spinning and smells like burned rubber. Smoke coming out of durm when front load door was opened.


Hi Paul.
What you're describing is probably the inner drum rubbing on the door seal.
It could be because the rear bearing assembly has collapsed or because the drum is distorted.
Turn the drum slowly by hand and see if the gap between the rim of the drum and the rubber seal stays the same. This will tell you if the drum is 'round' or bent out of shape.
Alternatively, if the drum flops up and down inside the outer drum it would be because of bearing collapse
Either of these situations would require a service visit and parts.

Washer maytag front loading 4000 series assembled and runs but iwith two problems.1) residue on inner surface of door window..lint like oily paste ..gasket rubbing on inner drum?? meaning main rubber


The fault seems to be that the main seal is rubbing against and is thus producing the oily residue on the window. Now the fault seems that the drum is rubbing due to POOR ALIGNMENT or poor BEARING settings.
You need to check the PLAY on the drum and if this shakes a bit then the assembly must be reset with correct aligment and the drum must move without rubbing the rubber seals.

I have a Whirlpoool 6th sense front loader. The drum is constantly rubbing against the front rubber seal which constantly whines and screams. Is there an easy fix???? We reported this to the service centre...


Few things to check as the gap tollarance between the drum and rubber seal is small. Open door and turn drum by hand. Look carefully and see if the drum has an uneven wobble which is touching the rubber. If it has, you need to send the machine back or frplace the drum. Sometimes the rubber is installed slightly off centre which alters the correct rotation gap. Seal would need to be removed and realligned correctly.(I would check the drum for any signs of not being truly round)

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor...


it sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the motor try to open it and see if you can get it if not take it to a small engine repair service hope this was helpful:)

Seems like you need new drum rollers. If one(or both) is bad, the drum will rub in the plastic.
