Clicking sound from Beko washing machine when drum rotates


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My washing machine is making a weird clicking sound whenever the drum rotates, either by hand or during wash cycle. I read other similar topics here before posting and manually checked the drum from inside for any wire or something else being stuck - could not find anything.

Below is a short video of the sound, hope this helps.

Can anyone please let me know what might the problem be and is it anything I can fix myself?

Also I regularly use the machine with this sound(as I have to do my washing), is this causing any long term damage to the machine?

Thank you

Hello. That sounds like the motor. To troubleshoot a noise when the drum turns you need to take off the drive belt and make sure it's not catching on the drum pulley at the back. Then spin the drum by hand again. If the noise is still there it's related to the drum, drum bearings or something stuck in the drum. If the noise has gone then it has to be the motor or in some rare cases even the drive belt.

Thanks for the reply Andy, I'll need to take it apart I guess on the weekend. 

But, as you suggested that its most likely the motor, then what kind of repair and cost am I looking it? Would it be worth repairing or should I get another used machine from my local gumtree or something?

Thanks

It sounds like it could be a problem with the armature (raised or loose segment on commutator) New motor would be required if so.

Just came across the same problem with my beko so was it something you managed to get fixed yourself or am I better getting a new machine

The repair seemed too much of a hassle, so decided to use it until it dies and then just buy another one. 

So, I'm still using it in its current state and is working so far (still with the same noise).
