  1. On washing a large load of towels, I heard a loud noise on the spin cycle. Now the drum refuses to turn. I've had the back off, disconnected the drive belt & the drum is virtually seized. I can turn it slightly if I apply a huge amount of force to the pulley. Removing the large pulley showed the bearing, which looked OK (no metal fragments) but it's impossible to tell if it has seized or not without removing it. My machine is 18 years old & has been faultless up to now, but before I order a new machine (Bosch WAK28161GB I fancy), can anyone please advise if I've missed something simple? I'm certain it's not a bra underwire caught as that would be a scraping issue. No major noise issues on spin before this event. Many thanks in advance.
