AEG Washer Drier making banging noise and smoke


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hi all

Our 5 year old AEG washer drier has been getting louder on the dry cycle the past few weeks and today some smoke came out of the drum.

I took the back off and there is lots of brown dirt but the belt looked fine. 

I took the belt off and spun the drum and the noise is still there so it’s not a motor issue. Could anyone give me a suggestion? The wheel seems solid on the axle and the noise sounds like something is loose in the drum.

I’ve attached a video. Any help would be appreciated if just to say it’s not repairable and get a new machine.

Oh dear. The drum bearings have collapsed. It would probably need a complete new drum kit. Probably not worth repairing. 

Need a repair or spare parts?
