Hi

Can you post the full model number please.

It should be on a sticker inside the door and starts E-nr.

Thanks for that.

Now from what you say the drum bearings will have failed here that's why its noisy and you can lift the drum up and down in there.

Looking at this model it has what we call a split drum. If you wanted to you can remove the drum from the washer and split it and access just the bearings only and replace them.

Now it is a bit job and a full strip down of the washer but it can be done.

Also if getting a tech in to do it then its going to be an expensive fix as well.

Sorry its not good news but the fault you have here is faulty drum bearings here which will need the rum fully stripping down and splitting to be able to replace them.

Regards

Does this require the entire drum removed from the rear of the machine?
Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes im afraid so but its not from the back its from the front.

The complete drum will need to be remove from the rear of the washer so you need to remove the top and back panel.

Then you can remove the front panel.

Remove all hoses and remove the suspension legs from the bottom.

Disconnect all wiring and remove the motor from the back.

Once everything is off you can remove the drum from there.

OK Thank you very much for your help. I am going to drag it out in the garage and give it a try.If you have any additional tips please let me know. It will help. Thanks again for the help. Vic
Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Hopefully you sort it.

To be honest there isn't much tips to give really as its just a case of stripping the complete washer down.

The only thing I suggest is take a picture of the wiring on the back of the drum and the front controls just incase any wiring blocks comes away.
