have a miele novotronic w310 front loader from the 2004 era. Been a great machine and hasn't done a lot of work (~250 cycles). Slight leak from front door seal. Noticed that there was a crinkle in the bottom of the front door/ drum seal. Not sure what this was from so took off the seal, expecting to have to replace it. After its removal I could see why the seal was distorted. The drum/ outer hub opening was not centred in the door opening but had sagged and thus causing the crinkle in the seal. With the seal out it resumed a more normal shape and was in fair order except for a minor defect in the edge that rubs against the door clear window. There is some scoring on the upper part of the clear window where the drum has hit the door. The drum bearing seems ok. Can anyone please advise how extensive the job of repairing the ageing suspension system is likely to be . Are there four suspensions springs that will need replacing or are there adjustable brackets that can be moved to elevate the front of the drum? Can't find specific info about this models suspension system. I can't see this particular problem mentioned for these units, is it likely to be a common problem as the machine ages?
