Hi, I have an AEG 72630 Update machine, its been very noisy for a while on spin cycle but now is making a rattling noise & is leaving black spots on clothes, could it be bearings??

Yes this is the bearings, they have completely collapsed and the oil is leaking out onto your clothes. You will need a new tub rear and that is around £120 plus labour. Sorry its not better news.

Washing machine model zwf14070w1. Machine is flooding from underneath, drum is making loud grinding noise when rotating, and filter is full of what appears to be white synthetic fibrous material, which we...

Noisy machine is due to improper or fault in the drive of the motor and agitator assembly . You might have to remove this unit and overhaul , maybe the bearings or hub need a change.
Also try to use some lubricating oil on the moving shaft so as to lubricate and reduce the noise.
The filter clogging is the fiber that comes from the clothes while it is tumbled and in a period of time will accumulate. you need to clean them occasionally.
the flooding is due to clogging of filter of the drain and resulting in leaks . Check the drain pump/valve, check the hose fittings and make sure these are tight. check the inlet pipelines for leak and the washer door gaskets.

Drum makes loud whinning noise when spinning at high rpms.

Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

Debrie found on clothes after washing

This is sometimes caused by grease coming from the drum bearing through a failing seal. If this isn't checked and repaired as necessary, the drum bearing will fail pretty soon and then the machine will make a nasty grinding noise and that will be the end of it. I hope you have some other cause in your case! Do make sure the filter is cleaned and then run the machine on a hot cycle with no clothes in it to give it a really good clean.

Hope this helps. D.

Transmission oil is leaking into the basket of wash and staining clothing. the unit is 3 years old. repair service said to contact you for repairs since it is covered for 5 years.

sounds like the water seal in front of the drum bearings has failed causing grease from the bearings to get into the washtub this is usually accompanied by noisy spin cycle and rumbling noises from the drum when it is turning

if your washer has a slight rumble noise when on the spin then it is most likely that your bearings are on there way out,what it is is the bearings have grease in them and once the bearings start to go this grease starts to leak into the drum which is what the brown spots are it also leaks at the back around the bearing at the back of your outer drum and also leaks onto the floor this will need fixing by a domestic appliance engineer but it is sometimes cheaper to replace the washing machine

Oil and noise coming from my washing machine

i would think that the bearings have gone,spiin empty tub by hand and a rumbling noise will confirm also removing the rear cabinet will probably reveal a trail of rusty water down the outer tub.the answer is new shaft £40 and a bearing kit £22 your husband should be able to try it af as you say he is mechanically minded
