The drum is not moving properly. It starts to move slowly and then grinds to a halt as if it is being obstructed.


Not knowing the model you are working on but it sounds like you have an obstruction between the inner and outer tubs

Something catching on drum


is it noisy in the spin cycle?on the back wall of the drum it looks like a peace sign,this is where the spider gear and or rear bearing is,the gear can crack from overloading or using to much detergent,this could be what you're hearing as you move the drum,if it's something between the tub it will end up in the pump but most likely it's from the spider gear,i've seen this before,when it starts to pin fast gravity pins the broken part to the side but when you move the drum by hand you can hear it,use it and keep an eye on it,if your washer starts getting loud in the spin you'll know it's the spider gear,it would cost more to fix it than have it repaired so this means new washer time.

Frigidare ftw 647ghso thumping sound in one spot when i manually rotate drum sounds like its rubbing on something


Suspect a bad drum bearing or bent drum bearing shaft. When you rotate the drum, look for movement of the drum up or down while turning. If the drum moves suddenly, suspect the drum bearing. If it slowly moves up or down during turning, suspect a bent shaft on the drum. In either case, it is a major teardown to remove the drum from the outer drum case. If still under warranty, take advantage! Hope this helps!

Maytag MDG3000AWW drum moving slowly


If the belt looks worn you should replace it. But it sounds like the idler pulley has gone out of position or possibly broken. The idler pulley adds tension to the belt and keeps it from spinning on the drum surface. Check the path of the belt on the bottom of the dryer. That is where the idler pulley is.

Washer will not spin or drain water


I have a roper washing machine model RAB 2121kw and about a year ago it did the same. I was at the machine when it tried to spin one day and i opened the lid and spun the drum by hand a few times then shut the lid and slowly the drum started spinning. One problem is that i have just moved the washer and i now have an oil leak. When the drum wouldn't spin i think the motor heated the oil seal on the gear case and now it leaks. I have looked into it and don't think its that hard of a thing to change.

No Color


did u try cleaning the video head? heres how! unplugged the unit. open the cover. get a piece of clean white paper. put a little alcohol on it. place your finger on the paper and slowly touch the head but not too much force then gadually move the drum back and forth. donot move your finger up or down. just clean it horizontally by slowly moving the drum leaving your finger stationary. let it dry and test. if the problem persist see a doctor(technician), u have a problem with the color circuits. good luck!
