1 pointI'm not sure what it is, but after much searching around I actually found the seal, it had fallen down inside the machine and lodged itself between another couple of parts. ON retrieving it and reasembling the parts problem solved. I felt a little stupid afterwards by not noticing it missing in the first place. Disasembling all the pipes etc. was so difficult without the correct tools that it must of dropped out with out me noticing. Still while it was all in pieces I cleaned all the pipes etc. thoroughly, so a worthwhile venture.
1 pointHi Andy, I had to admit defeat with a family of four and no washing machine, and call in the local dealer where we bought the machine..they diagnosed a cracked spindle, base on play between the inner and outer drum..I guess this is where experience comes in - I didn't think it was excessive, but the engineer thought it was. Thanks again, very much appreciate your help. I did enjoy the journey anyway. I think I'll strip my machine down for parts, as there does seem to be a market on eBay for motors, main boards, etc
