I have the same problem, the drum attachment (casting) arms broke in two locations (out of the three available), caused serious havoc ... destroyed the outer plastic drum casing by disloding a screw and then dragging it around and gouging out a deep deep groove in the plastic casing, went right thru in one spot ...

Have to order the front drum (DC61-30346A, $45) and the stainless steel drum/casting assembly (DC97-00785A, $200) and rebuild the whole unit.

Samsung wd9652c8w washing machine tub bearing nos?


Hi Purnachandra.
If you intend doing a repair job yourself you probably only need to contact the distributor of Samsung parts and ask for the individual parts by name.
You should also consider replacing the shaft which is attached to the inner drum. This can become damaged and will not give a good seal..
Try Googling your model number for a parts distributor in your area.
Good luck.

Samsung WF218ANW drum tilted off track


It may be a suspension spring has come off or leg has broken if it is both drums off track.
If it's just the inner drum then the bearings may have failed or the spider that the shaft is connected to may have broken.
Start with the springs at the top and suspension first.

My washer is off track the drum moves all around in the spin cycle


(a) Open wide the front loading door. Ensure the drum is totally empty

(b) Remove the top of the washing machine and check that the Damper springs either side of the drum are attached and not broken or loose. Push down on the top of the drum to ensure they are both in good working order!. If they are broken, replace them.

(c) put both hands inside, and hold the top of the drum and try to lift the drum in a 'up and downwards' motion.

(d) If there is any movement in the drum this means the drum bearings have worn or disintigrated and need replacing.

(e) Remove the back panel from the washing machine and you will see a large wheel affixed to the drum. The bearings are behind it.

(f) Should you wish to replace the bearings or springs yourself to save money, they can be purchased at trade price from espares tel: 0844 375 3375
by giving them the make and model number of your washing machine. They also sell at a very reasonable price 'How to' video's so thast you can do it yourself and save pounds.

My LG M#WM2277HB wont turn the drum. It started making bearing failure type noises a couple loads ago. I just pulled it out , removed the top/back and started it. the motor rotates cw and ccw but the drum...


Oh s***! If the motor turns but the drum does not, the drive shaft has broken loose from the three arms which attach it to the drum. (the part is called the "spider") To repair, remove bolt on end of shaft at center of motor. You may have to cut it with an angle grinder, but don't worry about that, because the shaft has to be replaced anyway. Remove motor rotor and stator. Remove washer front, drain hose, fill hose, shock absorbers, support springs, all wires attached to outer drum, and eventually the entire outer drum. Remove bolts between front and back halves of outer tub to allow removal of inner drum. Remove 6 bolts holding 3 arms of spider to back of inner drum. Re-assemble with new spider and new bolt for end of shaft. If you can do it in under two hours, give yourself a big pat on the back. This is about a 8.5 on a 1 - 10 difficulty scale for washer repair. Good luck Mike.

Model 110.24902200 will not agitate and will not spind


If the washer fills and and empties and you can hear the motor, then the most likely fault is a broken coupler. The water pump is mounted directly on the rear of the motor and the motor/pump assy is attached to the transmission using a three piece coupler (part # 285753, $18.50). One of the two identical pieces of the coupler is attached to the motor output shaft and the second is mounted on the transmission input shaft. The third piece is a rubber part that allows the coupler to break in certain situations to protect motor. When this coupler fails the motor will still drive the water pump but the agitator will not move. A broken coupler can be identified simply by looking at it. Flip the machine and look for it between the motor and transmission.

My zanussi washer dryer wjs 1397 w drum is not turning


It is most likely that the drive belt is broken and needs repalcing, If you remove the rear panel it will be obvious if it has broken *** there will be a lrge flywheel attached to the drum and no drive belt going to the motor, near the bottom of the machine. These are easy to obtain from any domestic appliance spares store or mail order. They are also very easy to fit.If the drive belt is in place and is reasonably tight (taught) then you may have an issue with the motor. clutch or brake.
