Question about EuroTech EWF172 Front Load Washer
Running empty there's no noise, even in spin cycle,but with load even small load.The drum wiggle badly and really noisy.
Hi, could be one of at least two things - if the inner drum can be moved up and down by hand more than an inch when you grab it through the open door it could be the drum bearings that have failed - not good. Usually accompanied by a grinding noise and dirty specks on the clothes.
If the outer drum is really loose in the casing - check with machine unplugged and top removed - then one or more of the very strong springs at the top or the telescopic dampers at the bottom might have come off or broken from it's mounting.
Hope this helps!

My eurotech washer has an inner and outer stainless steel drum. The inner drum is supported in the back by cast aluminum supports. (like many other models). The cast aluminum carodes and weakens and breaks. You may find pices of this in the strainer. Not hard to replace and not expensive but very difficult to get the part. Eurotech has been out of the part for months.

If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. Also check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)
Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.
Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.
Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
