Question about Washing Machines
A quick check for wear bearing is to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only move a minute amount. If it moves more than a millimetre or two, it is probably worn bearings. You can obtain bearing kits for most makes at our shops
If it is making unusual noises while washing too, check there is not a bra wire or similar object trapped half way into one of the drum holes. A high pitched whine is sometimes caused by the motor bearings
when replacing bearings, ensure that any bearing seals are replaced with the appropriate new ones from the bearing kit, as many bearing failures are the result of failed seals allowing water to get into the bearings.
I hope this helps
