If you can move just the drum(not the whole tub). If the drum is "loose", the bearings are gone! I really dont know how to change them on this machine, but it is usually pretty difficult.

Leaves black marks clothes


Are we talking tumble dryers here as it's been posted under the 'washing machine' section?
Anyway all depending on what type of dryer you have, normal vented one (with outlet hose that you stick out of the window) or a condenser dryer? Get back to me I may be able to help you with this ok, cheers, Ken.

Water coming out front of condenser


It is difficult for me to understand why any water should be coming from the dryer. Your washer maybe the fault, clothes should be, at best, damp from the washer with very little excess moisture. Check to see if your clothes washer is spinning, if necessary try turning off the water supply to the washer and run another rinse/spin cycle, if your clothes are still wet or dripping then your washer needs repair. Check that first... And report back

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Our clothes dryer squeaks when it is drying clothes. How can it be fixed or what is the problem?


Most time them squeak is like bad brake pads on a car. The plastic bearing is gone and now the drum is riding on the metal bracket. The front of the drum rides on slides and when they wear out you get a scrubbing sound and not so much a squeak. So i would say you have a GE/Hotpoint type dryer with a rear bearing that looks like this:

Hotpoint WD440 creases clothes badly & takes ages to dry


This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.

PROBLEM WITH HOTPOINT WASHER DRYER - MODEL BWD 129-ON DRY CYCLE CLOTHES COME OUT STEAMING AND WET. PLEASE ADVISE


If the clothes are coming out hot and steaming, then the water from the clothes is not condensing, it could be a blocked condenser, which will have to be removed and unblocked and cleaned.
The other possibility is that there is no cold water coming in on the drying cycle, this can also have the same effect.
Hope this helps.

Aquarious wd63 washing getting grey stains at end of wash cycle


Hi.
Can you tell me? Does the washing machine sound noisier than normal in spin? Does it sound rough?

The grey marks could be drum bearing wear causing oil from the bearing to enter the washing machine. Sometimes you may see grey or black dots on your clothing.

If this is the case then repair cost is typically around £100 depending on where you live.

Hope this helps

WD63 Drain during wash but not dry cycle


the chances are you water valve has gone the drying cycle requires water to convert steam back to water, or poss your condenser is blocked this cant be cleaned easily better to change I dont know how competent you are if you have a muti meter you could test the soleniod which should have a resistence of around 3800 ohms. the valve is a triple one and the one that serves the condenser is the one facing downwards, disconnect power,take back off, turn water suppy off,take the 2 leads off the bottom solaniod only ,put your meter on contacts make sure you have selected crrect range on meter ie:10mohms if 0000 solanid faulty.Change valve if reading says 3800 valve ok change condenser
