Instead of all thet troubel try running a hot 90 degree wash with epsom salts. Then do another 90 degree wash with detergent. Be careful for a while with the nesxt fer loads as some greases can take awhile to let go of the outer drum walls. Dont use fabric softerer and you wont have to do this in the future cheers

How to remove a samsung 8kg top loader drum to pressure clean and remove black rubber like build up


No need to remove the drum. You can buy cleaning agents for the washing machine at the local supermarket. You have to actually run the machine in cleaner solution and you have to do this every 3 months at least.

Getting black marks on washing ,drum seal is grubby and has a stain at the bottom that won't come off. i have tried to clean it with bleach and other cleaners to no avail


This may not be as simple an issue as you think. Repeated problems with marks on garments are often the symptom of a problem with the machine that goes beyond cleaning. The best cleaning advice I can give is that you can use a neat bleach on the rubbers and any surfaces that appear to need it, I know you have stated that you already did this, but did you leave the bleach on overnight? Often, black m o u l d will form on the rubber seal between the drum and the chassis and you will find brushing neat bleach onto thease and leaving overnight will probably remove or greatly reduce them. Another excellent tip is to set the machine to the hottest wash (usually 90 degrees) and throw 3 DISHWASHER tablets into the drum.

Washing machine powder is usually "Biological" which means that there is bacteria in the powder which "eats" your stains. Sometimes this can build up. Dishwasher tablets attack bacteria and will help to clean the machine. Finally, you might want to try a propriatary solution like CALGON.

Turning to my more serious concerns now:

Often, marks such as you describe can be the result of clothing carching between the inner drum (The metal bit that spins) and the outer drum. The problem here is that such a problem is usually because the bearings in the drum are failing and allowing it to "flop about" trapping garments.

To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drum up and down.

The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. If the bearings are bad enough to allow clothes to get trapped and marked then other symptoms will typically include:

A clonking noise as you lift and release the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings and or hitting the outer drum)

You will have become aware of the spin cycle becoming far noisier recently and possibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins

The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open

A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is the result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal at the rear.

Now, NONE of this may be a problem and the cleaning advice I have provided may be all you need, but I'd rather you had a full explanation of the possibilities.

If the bearings have failed, I'm sorry to say that this is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.

To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable, and most are) will be about £20 ($30) or so. But its a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I've ripped the machine apart and reassembled it after the bearing swap. A local repairer will probably attend and swap out your defective drum for a refurbished one and then take yours away so he can refurbish it and put it back in his stock. Sadly, this will take the price up to the point where you need to question if the expense is worth it or do you get a new machine instead.

I do hope that it doesn't come to this for you.

The rear drum wont come off as i would expect


Yes, Undo the 32mm nut, first. And, don't get the bearings dirty with dust from the brake drums, or , if you do, replace the inner and outer bearings with new greased up ones.prev.gif next.gif REAR DRUM BRAKES Brake Drums REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. On vehicles without rear bearing hub, remove the dust cap, cotter pin, nut lock, wheel bearing nut and washer from the spindle. Remove the outer wheel bearing. Remove the drum with the inner wheel bearing from the spindle. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. Remove the grease seal.
  4. If equipped with a rear bearing hub, remove the drum by removing the retainer screws from the drum and pulling the drum from the hub assembly. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. To install:
  5. On vehicles equipped without rear bearing hub, lubricate and install the inner wheel bearing. Install a new grease seal. Install the drum to the spindle. Lubricate and install the outer wheel bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the bearing preload following the procedure outlined in the "Rear Wheel Bearing'' of this section. When the bearing preload is properly set, install the nut lock and a new cotter pin. Install the grease cap.
  6. On vehicles with rear bearing hub, install the brake drum to the hub assembly and install the retaining screws.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Adjust the rear brakes as required.
  8. Apply the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained, prior to moving the vehicle.

How to replace rear wheel bearings


If it has drum brakes, you'll need to take off the center dust cap, remove the cotter pin, remove the nut and washer holding the drum on. The outer bearing should fall out, the inner bearing usually stays in the drum, due to the grease seal. With the front bearing and washer off, put the drum back on and install the nut, then pull the drum, allowing to the nut to catch the inner bearing as you pull off the drum, and that should leave the inner bearing and seal on the spindle. Pack the new bearings with grease, install the inner one in the drum and tap in the grease seal in place, but the drum back on and install the outer bearing on the spindle, the wash, nut, cotter pin and dust cover. Tighten the nut snug and turn the drum a few times and snug up the nut. Don't overtighten it.
