Drum turns but sounds like a small metal object, possibly a screw, banging around inside . Continued to use and now sound is much louder and sounds like a bigger object.


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



The pulleys or rollers. Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density gear grease to re oil/grease them.



The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The belt loose or worn can make funny noises



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

Washing machine is showing pau13 and has a funny smell


Wrong category. You will get a faster response if you post the Make, Model of machine. Give as many details as you can. For example: "a funny smell comming from the motor, or a burnt electronic smell. I wold suggest reffering to the Machine's User manual, error codes/troubleshooting section. Or the Manufacturer's website, troubleshooting.

Hi, The last two washes i've just done on my Hotpoint WD72, the washing has gone full cycle but has come out smelling damp. Any ideas? I've had it since 2005 when it was new.


This will potentially sound odd, but run the 90 degree cycle with 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum. The smell is bacterial and probably the result of a build up of residue from biological soap powder (Which is simply bacteria that eat your stains). Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs making the smell

Will not spin and smells funny


Does the washer agitate while in wash cycle? Does it move at all? It may be that the motor that drives the spin and wash cycle is not working. If it smells funny, it usually means that you have bearings gone bad or a belt, if it is belt drive, broken. You can replace these parts. All the parts involved with spinning can be replaced. The parts are available from the maker. It may be a spin clutch, agitator gear, pulley, or a transfer case..

Inside of Washer Smells


often in washing machines there is a drain trap which needs cleaning out from time to time, (usually accessible from the front behind a removable facia) The manual should tell you how to clean this. you need to drain the water first (as there is often a little water still in the system). if you look on the program dial there is often an item that has an arrow pointing down, this should be the drain program, after this is done you can remove the draining cover and clean the workings inside, hopefullt this will solve your problem :)
