Question about Electrolux Washing Machines

1 Answer

Electrolux Front load - the boot seal is wearing due to friction from the drum at approximately 2-3 and 9-10 o'clock. Is there a drum suspension component that is wearing out.

Electrolux Front load - the boot seal is wearing due to friction from the drum at approximately 2-3 and 9-10 o'clock. Had to put a new boot seal in for other reasons and new seal is getting ground up causing piling in the clothes. I'm confident the new wear pattern will eventually catchup however I'm thinking there is shock absorber or suspension component that is wearing out. Would appreciate some insight

Yes, I would think you have a broken spring that is not holding the front of the drum up. Basically the drum should float flat and level with the springs and a gas strut or two.

I have an Electrolux Aqualux EW1200 i washing machine which is around 6 years old. The problem is that the drum no longer turns during the wash cycle. Instead it makes a slight grinding and banging...

6 years old - probably the wash tub bearings gone. Does the wash tub lift up and down from the front? sure sign bearings have gone. Would you drive a car at 70mph if the wheels were loose and floppy?
Not really a viable repair due to cost, and throwing good money after bad sort of situation, especially if your machine has a sealed wash tub which doesn't come apart.(welded Tub).
Cost of parts in this case would equal cost of new machine. Also, suspension, motor and heater will all be worn too. That's about the life span of machines these days I'm afraid!

Front seal not supporting drum, drum flops violently, doesn,t leak. seal wont stay on drum.

it sounds like you may have tub bearing issues or your suspension springs or shocks may be missing or broken. The front seal is just there for sealing, thats its sole purpose.
Basically there is two parts, the inner stainless steel drum and the outer plastic tub housing. Reach inside and see if you can move the inner stainless drum up and down any significant amount? If so the bearings are most likely shot. If its pretty solid but the outer plastic tub moves, its most likely a suspension issue. You can take off the top to get a much better view of the components.

How do you take the inner drum out of a Frigidaire front loading washer?

Make sure you have plenty of well-lit space to work as well as lay out the parts removed. Remove the cabinet top by removing several screws from the rear, slide it back somewhat, then lift up. Remove the back panel by removing screws along the top rear, then lift up. Pull loose the rubber boot (it's glued to the cabinet front opening as well as to the outer drum face) CAREFULLY from the front panel opening. After uncoupling the drum motor, wiring, hoses, and suspension components, lift out the entire outer drum assembly. The case splits after removing a handful of bolts from the split circumference. Remove the large drum pulley and any snap-rings holding the large shaft in place. The inner drum should pull out of the rear case, but leave the bearings and seal in the case. The inner bearing and seal are prone to failure over time. The official fix is to replace the rear case (with new seal and bearings) for some 300 to 400 dollars. We chose to replace the bearing and seal from a local bearing supply house for about $16. It's still working well after over 10 years. Assemble in reverse order. Use 3M automotive trim cement for gluing the rubber boot back to the cabinet front. Hope this helps!

I'm finding pinholes in my clothing.

I'd be more suspicious of what you're putting through the wash, rather than the machine.

Grease type substance inside

Hello. I know exactly what is wrong with your dryer.

If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Burning smell, loud when spinning, bleach spots

The bearings that hold the drum on the shaft are faulty, the bearing seal eventually wears out, water gets in, the bearings rust and become loose due to the forces exerted when the machine is spinning. The burning smell is due to the bearings being loose so the drum is off centre (very noisy spin) they rub against the door seal which is rubber, when spinning this causes alot of friction and heat. The spots on the clothes are a common thing, the bearing fluid leaks into the drum causing oily stains, this might look like bleach but it isn't.
A bearing repair job is quite expensive (£80-150) if you can order the spare part bearings you will get the job done cheaper by just paying labour charges.
