Question about Electrolux EW1000i Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Drum stuck fast

My washer has been making loud noises for the last couple of washes during the spin cycle. Now the drum seems to be completely stuck. I can't manually turn it and none of the cycles will get properly started.

    When the washer starts in to spin cycle it drains then tumbles a few times then it starts to speed up but never gets fast enough to spin the water out

Hiya
sounds like the drum bearings may have seized, or they are worn and the belt has come off and wrapped around the drum pulley. a few things you can check are:-

does the inner drum have any up and down movement to it?

does the belt appear to be on ok? (you will need to remove the lid to see)

have you noticed any black marks on the clothes recently?


hope this helps

Washing machine travels during the spin cycle


Hi - Try to rotate the drum when it is not in use, manually and see if you notice the sound as well. If you do the drum is not balanced and you would need a professional technician to diagnose the bearing and pulley system behind the drum for repairs.

Washer drum shakes excessively during fast spin


y shaped piece that contains the spindle that attatches to the basket and allows it to spin is corroded and cracking. you can't buy just the spindle bracket, you must buy the basket too. you'll be buying the front part of the drum too, if you wait to long.

Spin cycle


  Did it make this noise just when it stopped spinning.  Just for a couple seconds?  If so,  it's only brake noise and not a concern.  If it does this all during spin you probably have a bad tub bearing.  Is it a roaring noise?  This is what the bearing will sound like.

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)


Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
