Miele drum rubbing door seal

Recommended Posts

Miele inner drum is rubbing on door seal seems to be getting worse.  No play sideways or back to front on inner and outer drum.  Inner drum looks to be slightly proud of outer drum.  I suspect its still a bearing issue anyone else had this problem?

Hello. If it is the bearings it should be very noisy on spin? If it isn't noisy and there's no play it shouldn't be the bearings.

No noise has been noticed, checked a new Miele today and the inner drum is slightly behind the outer drum so mine has moved forward slightly

Check that the drum pulley hasn’t come loose allowing the drum shaft to move forward.

Looked at inner drum its slightly forward and rotates off centre compared with the rim of the outer drum probably 10mm out( it looks worse than the measurement suggests, but not any noise and not loose, do they normally rotate pretty much central can they be adjusted?  Stripping drum down later

The rims can appear slightly out of true, they are often not perfectly circular. Can you push the drum back on its shaft? Try pushing and twisting at the back of the drum to see if it will push back at all. Did you check the drum pulley?
