    Try lifting the inner drum to check if there is any movement between the inner and outer drums, also turn the drum and listen for any grinding or scraping sound from the rear of the drum. Its possible that your bearings have gone out & need to be replaced. The job is far from easy. (For front loaders)

Repair manual for 7kg eco wash system ewf1074?


Replacing the bearings is a comprehensive job and requires expertise and a lot of time.
First of all should estimate which parts should be replaced.
These are certainly the following parts: "Ball bearing - 25x52x15",
"Ball bearing - 30x62x16", Seal of drum shaft - 35-62 and besides them should be reviewed the state of drum shaft.
After a thorough review, you should estimate whether the repair cost or cheaper to buy a new washing machine.
First of all, I recommend that you look the tutorials on the following links:

Hotpoint wmf560 aquarius washing machine


BIG JOB !!! The whole machine has to be stripped down. Ie/ The complete bowl assy has to be removed from the machine, the outer bowl separated from the inner bowl, the main seal removed, and the bearings pressed or knocked out of the housing in the rear of the outer tub. If the bearings have failed , it would be almost certain that the drum shaft has worn and or been damaged. You will need a set of bearings, drum spider shaft assy, and main seal. If its an older machine, it may not be worth it.

Sounds very much like the drum bearings have failed. It is not a DIY job I'm afraid. Up to date washing machines are now impossible to actually replace bearings and only way to repair is to replace inner and outer drum assembly. This is a 1/2 a day job at the least to a professional. Older machines.....you can replace the bearings but this still involves removing the outer drum ou from under the washing machine, and the a very normal bearing removal and replacement procedure. Make sure the bearings are knocked in very straight and not on the skew. Good luck

Kenmore elite heavy duty king-size capacity model 110.2302: tub spins, but makes a loud banging noise as if the load is off-balance, even when there is no load


I'm sorry to say, this almost certainly means that the main bearings on the drum have failed. This is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.

To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable , and most are) will be about £20 (($30) or so. But its a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I

Noisy faulty bearings, is this a realistic or expensive repair or a new machine?


Bearings can be changed but can be awkward to do. Expect about 2 hours labour and a bearing kit which costs about 35-40 pounds. Would advise getting a professional to do this

Zanussi 1400 jet model nowjd1457w ball bearings have come out


If ball bearings have come out, then there are only 2 possible places they could have come from.
1- The motor bearings.
2- the main drum bearings.
In both cases, it is a expensive fault to rectify.
To check, remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand, this should help you to tell if it is the main bearings or the motor.

My 13 year old wma58 makes a lot of noise on spin rinse


To be certain if it is the main bearings, remove the lower rear panel of washer, remove belt, and spin drum from the front.
If it feels rough or is rumbling, then the bearings have failed..
If no noise from drum then it could be noisy motor bearings.
At that age, it certainly would not be cost effective either way.
Hope this helps.
