I have a seventeen year old indesit wd10 it seems to make a grinding noise randomly almost like the sound is cogs grinding/slipping against each other when it’s really goes for it it chucks the belt off.

I have taken the belt off and turned the drum it move freely, no resistance no grinding or rumbling.

I put the belt back on same no issues

the belt has some light hazing and cracks which I will replace and the motor brushes are worn down another one to replace awaiting part. Neither of these could cause the noise I describe ?

the pulley has no play the bearing doesn’t seem to move or make noise when I spin it. No rumble or grinding.

bit stumped whats wrong ? 

Wonder if the motor could be the issue ? 

Thanks

Hello there, sorry for the late reply. To be honest if it's 17 years old it's always going to be a risk doing any repairs. The belt been thrown off is often caused by drum bearings collapsing but if it doesn't make any noise when you spin the drum by hand and there is no play then it may well be something else. It is possible for a drive belt to become badly worn and cause noises on spin or get thrown off, but your description doesn't sound too severe. A grinding noise is often caused by a coin or something similar stuck inside the pump. This noise obviously only happens when the pump is running, and often can be intermittent as the obstruction gets tossed around. A motor can also make a grinding noise if the bearings are badly worn but again this should be detectable by spinning the motor by hand. Have you had chance to find out any more about it?
