Our washing machine has been noisy for ages and now the drum seems to be jammed. If i start a program it starts to fill with water and tries to turn but sticks as if its being jammed by something.
I've tried to take it apart to check but i can't even see a way to get inside it properly. just the top panel and a little panel on the back. how can i take the whole case apart?

Re: Drum wont turn
Sounds to me like the rear bearing is seized up. Seeing how you describe its been noisy for ages I would say the porblem is the bearing. Its not a easy jub to replace for a novice.The entire tub must be removed and taken apart to replace the rear bearing. To take the case apart its only the front panel with the door that that will come off. there should be a wire with a spring that holds the bellows to the door. remove that and the rest should come apart from the inside. Dont forget to disconect the dor switch.

If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long
you may find that the water pump is not operating properly as the first fill of water is normally pumpt out first before the wash fill is started unplug the machine and take the back panel off and locate the water pump and check if you can move the cooling fan at the rear of the pump freely if not the take the water outlet pipe off and remove whatever is stopping the rotation of the pump replace all parts and run the machine to see if the fault has been found and cleared eric
Every few months, new things are done to improve washing methods. If washing machine is washing clothing cleanly, and no apparant fault code comes up, then it is how the controller is programmed and meant to be.
Try the following.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to the bottom of the drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside the hose.
Remove the black hose onto the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here and in the pump.
Hopefully, this will solve your problem.
Hi, I am the new owner of a used Asko
Cylinda 10504. The last owner briefly demonstrated
the washer starting a wash cycle and entering the agitation cycle of the wash
before stopping and pumping the water out and spinning in a final end
cycle.I bought it.I had the machine installed turned it
on and cannot get it to go through the wash cycle.After starting at #1 it goes through a perpetual spin cycle
of sorts--water and soap soaking the drum and laundry but not enough water to
fill up half way or less.It stops
at number 4 on the program knob sits on a red dot (next to the #4) and does
nothing.I then manually move it
to the next cycle and it repeats the spin cycle again until I have advanced the
program to the end.No wash cycle
no rinse cycle.Nothing.When it advances to the red dot I wait
for at least 5 minutes before manually advancing the knob.The instructions say that I should get
the water pumped out by turning the program knob to #7 or #9 but in both cases
it just spins and does no empty or finish in the end spin cycle of several (9?)
minutes.Nothing but banging and
spinning.The water seems to get
into the drum as well as the detergent but nothing else is happening. No mater where I start the program it
spins and sloshes soapy water, pumping almost nothing out. Any suggestions short of putting it on
the curb or paying a kings ransom to fly a tech out to look at it? MY GUESS. It seems that it is repeating the same
brief cycle over and over.During
the move to my house the electronics re set(??!?!?) and now need to be set to
the normal mode after being re connected? Can you help? Blessings, Douglas
Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly. In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.
depends which program you started with
if you started with drain or spin then the humming noise you heard is the pump energised but jammed. remove the filter again and check nothing stuck in the pump impellor - bits of bra wire are the favourites
if you started with a wash or rinse program, the humming noise is the inlet valve energised but no water coming thro. check water is turned on and hoses not kinked
