Question about AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer
If you put your hand palm up on the lip of the inner drum and lift then drop is there a lot of movement before the weight of the tub comes on?
If there is a lot of movement (slack drum) then the most likely cause is bearing failure.
Push down on the inner drum and swing it from side to side, does it feel or sound rough?
If yes, this confirms bearing failure.
The clicking noise, if you spin the inner drum does it make a rythmic click?
Unplug the appliance from the wall socket, drag the machine out and take the rear panel off. Take the belt off and spin the drum again, has the clicking noise disappeared?
If it does then there is most likely a raised segment on the motor armature, this is not repairable and would require a replacement motor.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
