SOURCE: noisy bearing on drum

This is not an easy job on any washing machine. The AEG is probably the same as most washing machines in that it has two bearings on the shaft at the rear of the drum but it also has a carbon water seal on the inside and usually you will need to change this too as if you disturb the bearings it will surely leak. If you have never done this before it can be dreadfull. If your drum has bolts and a seal at the back to withdraw the inner drum and back plate out the back of the machine then you are lucky and you should be able to do the job in about two hours. If you dont have a removeable back on the drum you will have to strip the whole machine and remove the drum supports and hydraulic pistons at the bottom. All hoses and pipes and wiring attached to devices on the drum will have to come out as well as the door seal and soap dish rubber connector. Good luck.

SOURCE: Works fine but very noisy

The pulley will come off. You will need to use a pry bar or wheel puuler to remove it. It take a some pressure to remove this, but it will come off.
Just work with it.

SOURCE: noisy drum bearing also play

It's very difficult to advise on a noisy washing machine because you can't describe noises accurately enough. People often describe the same noises quite differently.

Generally though, if a washing machine is rumbling, and noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings have probably gone.

Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure is a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust.

Other causes of a noisy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause noise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of noise on spin as they coins get tossed around inside. Usually, spinning the drum by hand will not reproduce the noise in the case of coins as the coins drop to the bottom of the tub when the washing machine isn't spinning.

A light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand is usually a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum.

A high pitched squealing or harsh noise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.

A knocking noise can be a loose tub weight. This would be worse with heavy loads and would not be present on spin with no washing in. This is because the knocking noise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. Another symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine.

It's very tempting to ignore noises while the washing machine is still otherwise working. Some noises can be ignored as they will not develop into serious faults. Other noises, if left, will cause extensive damage and can end up costing considerably more than if tackled early or these days writing the washing machine off. Of course the problem is that you can't tell which of the categories a noise falls into - so ignore them at your own risk.

Kenmore oasis washer noisy when spinning


Hi, your probably right about the bearing its usually hard to tell untill they have compltely gone have you tried turning the drum by hand to see if it turns smoothly if it does then it could be the motor thats noisy both can be replaced but the drum bearing is a nighmare trust me you need pullers and its hard work.
So try turning the drum by hand and see if you can feel any roughness or catching this would tell you if the drum bearing has gone.
Let me know the outcome ok

DRYER MODEL DE7400P FRIGIDAIRE IS MAKE NOISE LIKE RUBBING METAL HOW DO I FIX?


Hi martyski39...

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your dryer drum is mounted in the rear with a bearing, most likely the bearing is faulty and making the grinding noise, or maybe two conditions exist.
1...Bad drum bearing noisy
2...Bad drum bearing noisy, and with play in the bearing allowing the drum to rub the felt seal away at the door making metal to metal contact.Check your door for obvious rub signs...
I will include a parts house webpage link where you can look at you "exploded" view of your dryer and order parts also.
Please take time to rate me

Hello there:
It's noisy If your dryer is noisy, check these: Rollers Idler pulley Glides Rear drum bearing Blower wheel Rollers Manydryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When theserollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole setof rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryershave a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drivebelt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don'tlubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Manydryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum forsupport. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens,replace them. Rear drum bearing Somedryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindleinstead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type supportor a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they maysqueak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them whenthey're worn. Blower wheel Yourdryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through theclothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaustduct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out overtime. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean theblower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, youprobably need to replace it.

Drum bearing noisy on spin


Remove the drum drive belt, and spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy, or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This a major repair.
Hope this helps.

Washing machine noisy when on a spin


  • If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.

    Ariston Margherita 2000 "AL109X" very noisy when spinning


    To start ensure that machine is well balanced, and that the load is well distributed inside the drum.

    If the problem is not balancing, then the most common is a broken drum bearing spider or a bad drum bearing. A symptom of drum bearing problems is the drum having excessive play when you spin by hand.
    Also struts and springs must be checked.

    Metallic squeaking from Amana Dryer


    Hi,
    If your dryer is noisy, check these:

    Rollers
    Idler pulley
    Glides
    Rear drum bearing
    Blower wheel

    Rollers
    Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. 


    Idler pulley
    Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. 


    Glides
    Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. 


    Rear drum bearing
    Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.


    Blower wheel
    Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

    Good luck.....
