Re: it makes a clicking noise
What I have seen cause that is the drive belt to that transport jump. The second thing I have seen ,and more commonly, if the clicking noise is not that bad and not causing jams is this. The opening in the drive gears is a "D" shape. It is rounded half way then straight in a "D" shape. What happens over time is the corners of the d shape round out a little and you get a clicking noise because of the shaft hitting the the flat spot, because is has some movement due to the wear. You can generally just put some grease into the D slot and that will cushion the movement and stop the clicking. Or just leave it alone if it doesn't bother you. Jamming will more indicate a jumping belt, not jamming will more generally mean some wear in a D slot.

Probably somethins stuck around the outside of the drum. Usual cause is the metal parts from bras or something similiar. With machine switched off and unplugged turn the drum manually and see what happens. If still noisy something like above is stuck.
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...
hi it sounds like there is a sock or something simular stuck between the drum and tank,the paddle is removable which may help you hook out the item,if you grab the drum paddle from the rear and pull it towards you it will then lift up,once you have removed the offending item,you just line up the slots on the drum with the pegs on the paddle and push towards the rear of the machine and you will here a click,this means the paddle is secure.
that really sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Either there was no developer in the cartridge or the metering blade that limits the ammount that gets onto the roller is bad.
Has to be the toner cartridge. Unfortunatly that may have also ruined the drum and cleaner within the drum cartridge. Return them for an exchange.
The reason it is running and running is that it is trying to read a patch that is developed on the drum and add toner to make a dark enough copy. And that definatly is not happening.
If the laser was not turning on, the machine would come up with a L something code. Besides if the laser was not comming on, the paged would be blank.
You can pretty much eliminate everything but the toner cartridge.
the machine water ceal and bearings must be changed before it spoil the drum.there is small metal under washer drum to give u sine noise if the drum unstable.and if you keep using the the machine,drum get demaged.mostly all front loading machines are like that.the test is,open back cover check if there is rust on the centre shaft,that means leaking throw the ceal and bearing.open the door and try to list up the inner drum if plays means problem with bearings as above.
