yes air is passing easily. I am running a spin program at present and the odd noise appears to be coming from the front section of the drum. The belt is running smoothly but not fast.
no, it is fairly rigid
yes moves fine, no noise. I have tried setting it off on a wash empty and it seemed ok but when i paused it and put a small item in to check it spun properly it started making a strange noise in the bottom, possibly bottom right of the machine, not quite a grating sound or a vibrating sound, not sure what it is. I have thoroughly checked the filter again, it is all clear.
not sure where this is, i can feel into the space of the tube that leads to the bottom of the drum, which I have already checked so see if clear. I can also feel a rotor type item at the back of the filter which i assume leads to the water extraction pump.there is no debris there, it turns 90 degrees when pushed each time. What does the pump impeller look like?
it looks dead center. the rotor bit does have some movement, forward and back, should it be tighter?
no obvious scratch marks, all looks smooth
thanks for your help Kelly, now i think on it it is noisier than it used to be when pumping out, i'll check out cost of replacing pump, thanks again
