Question about Electrolux EW1200i Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Why do we hear some noises when spinning? Yesterday, when I turned on the drier, I could hear some sound as if some boxes are inside it. Later , I took the clothes out and tried to wash few clothes, however, immediately after the clothes were soaked, I heard the noise again and it did'nt turn. What would be the problem?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Try this first just in case but note the last comment!
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

Hello

Welcome to Fixya!

Firstly we will need to establish is the hard drive spindle is actually spinning up. Can you hear it spinning up?

Does the hard drive make a clicking sound?

Let me know any feedback in regards to the above.

If you do hear a clicking noise, it is not good news.

Let me know by means of a comment.

Kind regards

The washing machine is working alright but when its spinning, theres a noise that sounds like its something broken inside... But u cant hear the noise when its on fast spin.


Can be front the drive at the bottom of the washer. I assume this has a high speed spinning and so there is a gear box which can be having less lubrication. So make sure that the motor drive section of the drum shaft assembly is well lubricated so that the noise at high speed reduces.
if you can do a mechanical job , it will be good to remove and reset with good lubrication and maybe replacement of the bearings.

Fischer & Paykel Excellence 6.5 1999 model Neclace has gone through wash and drain holes. Making terrible grinding noise. need instructions how to take off cover to find neclace.


Hi just read your posting.Now try this.Select a spin cycle and push the start button.Do you hear the noise straight away after the button is pushed or do you hear the noise later when the machine is starting to turn the bowl?The reason I ask you this is because as soon as you push the start button the drain pump will activate and then a couple of minutes later the bowl will start to turn.So if the noise starts straight away then the necklace is in your pump and if the noise starts later it is stuck to the bowl.Please reply with the additional information and I will guide you throe the removal of the necklace.Looking forward to your reply.

This sounds like a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable connections. The sound you hear is the relay and not the cylinoid.
