My tricity bendix WDR 1040 (about 6 years old now) has been great up until recently. there is now a very loud clunking sound when drum is spinning around - sounds like something large and it makes a heck of a noise..... any ideas what it might be, and if so is it easily fixed or should I start looking at prices for new ones! thanks

SOURCE: my tricity bendix washing machine flashing and beeping end light

Hi, we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.

SOURCE: Tricity Bendix washer won't take fabric softner in rinsing cycle

Your machine possibly has a defective water inlet valve which is preventing water from entering the dispenser channel to flush the fabric softner into the machine. The inlet valve in inside of your machine right where the washer hoses attach. the solenoid valves on the inlet will need to be checked with a multimeter to verify if they are working properly.

SOURCE: tricity bendix aw1400w will not spin

We had a similar problem, where it washed okay but didn't spin and just 'beeped' with end light flashing. When the drum was empty it was not moving round very freely.
Try unplugging the machine from the electricity. Then take top off machine off so you can see the casing outside the drum. There's a small rubber tube on top. If you disconnect that you can look through into the drum. Try turning the drum round slowly while looking through the hole. We found a sock wedged in which we managed to pull out through the hole (not easy and don't expect the sock to come out in one piece).
It worked - and we've had to repeat the procedure a couple of times now. Think I must be putting too much in the machine in 1 go, although there's always space at the top.

Hello,
If you have checked all of these then the only other explanation is that the pump motor is faulty and needs replacing or there is a fault with the wiring or Programmer.

Have a trcity bendix washing machine and during a wash it was making a loud baning noise from the drum when spinning . i went to look and there was smoke coming from the back of it and out of drawer . it...


Hello,
It sounds as if the bearings have gone or something as serious that needs inspecting.This machine would have the normal 5 year major parts warranty and they would offer a repair but you would pay the call out and labour.Hope this helps.

Washing machine trips my electricity as its about to spin,


There is almost certain to be a small leak which could be from a variety of things. The water sounds like it has found its way onto your motor windings. Once it starts burning,carbon is left behind on motor.The decision to replace motor and possibly hole in drum is the question.Need to weigh up if a new purchase is possibly the right way to go. Remove covers to see if the source of the leak is visible.

Drum is really loose and when hits spin cycle makes loud noise


Most front loaders are pretty much the same and it sounds like your tub bearings are going bad. There is also a problem in some front loaders where the drum arms corrode and break. You won't know until you pull it apart. If you are doing the work yourself it depends on the parts you need. You can knock out old bearings and match some up.
If you are paying someone, it may be cheaper to buy a new washer..

Dryer


We found that we needed to turn down the water inlet to almost off and then the dryer worked when we had the same problem.
Remember to turn it back up again before the next wash
