Question about Indesit Washing Machines
Washing machine Indesit WI 102. Drum makes noise on spinning when loaded. I think one of the arms holding the drum might be broken. Any idea how I can dismantle the drum to get hold of the arm and change it?
I had trhe same problem and was going deaf!!! I know this is probably too late for your machine but it may be usefull to someone else with this model.
Originally thought the bearings had gone but had great trouble trying to source some through UK websites so decided to strip the machine. Did this by touch (no manual!) and eventually found that the bolts holding the bottom weight to the drum had all come loose (all 3!). Trying to access them to tighten was the biggest problem as the front of the machine is welded on.
Managed the above by removing the rubber door seal from the door only and tightening two of the bolts from inside the door. The third I managed to access from beneath the machine. All were tightened using 10mm socket on a bar with extension (curtain pole!) slid over the end.
During this process I had the machine on its side, removed the securing brackets, top weight + springs and wedged the drum from beneath and the side as much towards the rear of the machine as possible to aid access.
