Re: wm12x drum stopped

It's probably the bearings. The drum have probably get so loose from the bearing, so the belt have snapped off.

Washing machine banging noise

It could be the main shaft on the drum or misalignment. There is some flexibility, but not a lot. Check for worn belts, pulley wheels, and other attachments.

Noise when the drum turns.

Hello, I have the same issue with a machine now 5.5 years old. At lower drum rotating speeds, a loud clicking (almost stripping sound) is heard. I have only inspected from the lower front cover and found nothing. Will also look in the back for clues...

Front loader noisey


If you remove the belt and turn drum by hand, it should revolve freely and without any noise.

If it is noisy or feels stiff, then you proabably have main drum bearing failure.

Could be expensive to put right

Loud - maybe ball bearings gone

How old is the machine?
There are glides that the drum turns on that may be bad rather than a bearing!
How old is the machine? if it's 9 years old or more.Do not put good money into bad!
A new machine will save you a lot of money on energy. Enough to pay for it self in only a few years!

How much play in rear pulley

Scott, the pulley should be tight, no play, Check to see if one of spokes are cracked on the pulley. I do believe that you have a 5 year warranty on the bearings on this machine, parts only. It's a huge job to replace the bearings on this model. Give Sears a call to see if they will cover the parts. You will need the rear tub and bearing kit...Good luck
