Question about Bosch Washing Machines

Inner drum of my 7 year old washer WFD 2460 rattles on spin and seems unsupported. The rubber surround is intact, is it the only means to support the drum? Thanks. J.Reeve

    Thanks for your advice Richie. Do you know how to access the inner drum
    bearing? Looks like a strip down of the front panel do you think?

    Hi Richie,



    Not sure if you got my last post so here it is again.

    Thanks for your advice, although the rear bearing seems to have only a small amount of play I will go ahead anyway!



    Thanks again.

    Hi Richie,



    Unable to get the bearing bolt out due to it having a special tapered
    Alan key socket to get it off. Could try grinding down to a taper an
    Alan key to suit the socket but maybe it is time to get a quote from a
    Bosch repairer.

    Do you think it is now time to write off this machine? It would be a
    shame as I am in favour of keeping things going instead of disposing of
    an otherwise a good bit of kit.



    Thanks anyway for your help.



    Jon

    Hi Richie,



    Checked springs, ok but dampers may have some slack. How much slack is
    acceptable and how can I test for this? Maybe run the machine looking
    from the top?



    Thanks, Jon

Hi there!

I would say it is the rear drum bearing which needs replacement. This is what supports the load of the entire drum. The seal is just a water seal.

The good news is that it's a bosch, and replacements are easily available. You are lucky to get 7 years use without problems. Cheaper models give up after 12 months!

Check online for spares under the model number, or have it replacd by a local technician. It is the main drum bearing you need.

If this assists to a solution, Please take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.

    Hi,



    Most, if not all access from the back.



    Try lifting the drum by hand - you should get a fair ammount of play if it is faulty.



    Isolate supplies,

    Remove top screws at the back, and slide back top panel, then remove all external screws holding on rear panel,



    You should be able to access the rear bearing quite easily from there.

    There should be no need to remove the front seals etc.



    Please rate this as Fixya! if it leads to a successful solution, Helpful if went part way to a solution. Thank you.

    Check springs are still attatched, and that buffers faven't fallen off.



    The only other thing would be the damper (s) at the bottom.

    All the above cancause the drum to bang about.



    I advise you investigate first before ordering parts.

Kenmore Elite H3 washer's loud in spin cycle & smells burnt.Debris & plastic in well inside washer.Pushed aside rubber ring & saw lg. gap btwn. metal drum & surrounding plastic.Parts needing replace?


It sounds like the drum has broken from the rear mount. This will chew up the outer shell. This is a very labor extensive job. The parts are expensive also. You will probably need a new outer shell and inner drum.

Washer maytag front loading 4000 series assembled and runs but iwith two problems.1) residue on inner surface of door window..lint like oily paste ..gasket rubbing on inner drum?? meaning main rubber


The fault seems to be that the main seal is rubbing against and is thus producing the oily residue on the window. Now the fault seems that the drum is rubbing due to POOR ALIGNMENT or poor BEARING settings.
You need to check the PLAY on the drum and if this shakes a bit then the assembly must be reset with correct aligment and the drum must move without rubbing the rubber seals.
Check this link; replacing bearings

I believe the drum is off, it rattles badly. Also it seems taht the white plastic ring in between the drum and the rubber seal has broken.


If the inner wash tub does not spin true, but wobbles and rubs against the outer plastic tub, when you try to spin it by hand. The problem is that the support arms or spider arms have failed. It is an expensive repair since the wash tub and outer tubs need to be replaced and the washer has to be torn completely apart to replace them. Check your warranty and see if the manufacturer will help with the repair costs. Get a few estimates, before deciding whether to repair or replace this. Sorry.

WFD 2460 will not start wash cycle after it has filled with water


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.

If you mean the inner drum - remove the agitator, pull off the sofetener cup and remove the 15mm bolt down inside to remove agitator, then secure inner drum to center bearing.
If you mean the outer drum, check the holding down springs visually, remove the front panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then remove 2 small bolts to remove front panel.
Also check and replace drive belt, tilt machine backwards to gain access underneath.

Hi, It sounds like you have the two water pipes fitting on the wrong connectors on the back of the machine.

IE: The hot water pipe (RED connector) on the cold water inlet on the back of the machine (BLUE connector)

Is should be red to red and blue to blue.
