Zanussi Bad Bearings?

Recommended Posts

Hi I hope someone can help me, I have a Zanussi ZWF1210 that's just turned ten & it's developed a metallic scraping/squeaking noise when the drum is turning in either direction, the drum can also be moved away from the door seal very easily & I think it might be worn bearings. The machine has had very heavy use over the last ten years & may have been overloaded at times. It's never had underwired bras in it & trouser pockets have always been checked for coins.

Apart from this noise the machine has worked without fault for the last ten years & would be sad to part with it, if it's the bearings is it an easy fix & would I be better off buying a new machine?

I'd be grateful of any help & advice.

If it's the bearings I would scrap it, especially at that age. It sounds like the bearings have collapsed. If you can lift the drum up and down either the drum spider or bearings have collapsed. If it's been noisy for a while, especially rumbling on spin and/or there is brown rust marks underneath it and/or down the back of the outer drum it's knackered. If bearings collapse due to being run too long after they have become noisy it can make quite a mess and even require a new outer tub.
