Hi all I have a Miele W5780 which is only about 6 years old. Yesterday the machine started to make a quite loud clanking sound when spinning. Can someone please tell me, is this a bearing or shock absorber issue? I've attached a video to show the issue. Will add a picture in a subsequent post. washingmachine.mov
Mags posted a topic in UK Washing Machine Repair QuestionsHello, I have an eight year old Hoover washer/condenser dryer (VH W654D-80) which has recently developed a knocking noise on fast spin after my daughter badly overloaded it. However Ii had been moving around a bit more than usual prior to this. I don't think it is bearings or spider, but the shock absorbers might be soft and need replacing. Where the noise seems to be coming from is a part of the dryer at the top of the machine which is lose. I believe this is the heater fan, (and coincidentally the dryer trip switches cut the circuit any time the dryer is used so I suppose the unit is broken, it is certianly stiff and dry to turn), and there are two accessible bolts, but these don't hold it on and removing them doesn't release it. I think I need to lift the top part to access and tighten the bolts which do actually hold it down. Can anyone advise me how to do this please? I have just found a video online https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7aOO702DCg with a very similar machine with a defective heater but he isn't dealing with the fan itself, though it looks like I might have to remove the top of the heater to release the fan? Any advise would be most welcome, thanks.
