hi there, it sounds as if your drive belt is loose or broken. when you put you ear to the machine can you hear the motor running, if the motor runs but nothing else happens its a sure sign that the belt is gone. whilst you might look silly doing this, it may prevent you opening the machine up to replace the belt if you not have to.
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.

Hi, I am the new owner of a used Asko
Cylinda 10504. The last owner briefly demonstrated
the washer starting a wash cycle and entering the agitation cycle of the wash
before stopping and pumping the water out and spinning in a final end
cycle.I bought it.I had the machine installed turned it
on and cannot get it to go through the wash cycle.After starting at #1 it goes through a perpetual spin cycle
of sorts--water and soap soaking the drum and laundry but not enough water to
fill up half way or less.It stops
at number 4 on the program knob sits on a red dot (next to the #4) and does
nothing.I then manually move it
to the next cycle and it repeats the spin cycle again until I have advanced the
program to the end.No wash cycle
no rinse cycle.Nothing.When it advances to the red dot I wait
for at least 5 minutes before manually advancing the knob.The instructions say that I should get
the water pumped out by turning the program knob to #7 or #9 but in both cases
it just spins and does no empty or finish in the end spin cycle of several (9?)
minutes.Nothing but banging and
spinning.The water seems to get
into the drum as well as the detergent but nothing else is happening. No mater where I start the program it
spins and sloshes soapy water, pumping almost nothing out. Any suggestions short of putting it on
the curb or paying a kings ransom to fly a tech out to look at it? MY GUESS. It seems that it is repeating the same
brief cycle over and over.During
the move to my house the electronics re set(??!?!?) and now need to be set to
the normal mode after being re connected? Can you help? Blessings, Douglas
My wife had the same problem last night.This morning when I turned the m/c on, there was a lot of noise and when I looked underneath, loads of sparking. Closer investigation shows I need new brushes and I imagine that if the drum on your machine is not turning, you do too.
However you said that you can hear the motor? That may indicate a belt problem instead. get someone to turn the machine on it's side and manually turn the drum. If the motor rotates it isn't a belt problem and someone needs to test/repair your motor.
Isolate power and water supply and gain access to the main drum motor. Check for condition of carbon brushes by removing them and repla
ce if severely worn. Check wiring loom around motor and right back to module controller. The clicking is obviously power being supplied to motor via the loom to the motor. finally check for any dry solder joints or burnt areas on the circuit board controlling the motor.
sounds like maybe a blocked pump.Probably got a coin or sock or some lint in the pump.Has your machine got a filter ? What happens when you position the program switch on a spin section and turn it on ? does it pump out the water ?
possibly the belt is off/broken? can you hear the motor turning when the drum is supposed to be revolving? If not supect the motor carbon brushes, or some other fault with the motor/and /or circiut, at best it may be a burned out wire to the motor
Sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad motor. The easiest way to tell if the belt is bad is to reach inside the drum and turn it. If it turns very easily, you probably have a bad belt or something has caused the belt to jump off, such a s a loose pulley or bad bearing. If it feels like there is a good amount of resistance, or a kind of "winding up" noise, then the belt is still on and you likely have a bad motor. Also, you could just scoot the macine out, unplug it, and remove the back cover a look inside to see if the belt is still on the pulleys. Good Luck!
