I suspect my drum has broken

Hi all, 

I looked through a lot of information but can't figure out what part of the machine has broken and why? Hopefully I can find some advice. 

I have a hotpoint aquarius wdal 8640.

Last night during a drying cycle the machine made an almighty banging noise so I turned it off and discovered some snapped plastic and the seal pulled down. Am I right in thinking the drum has broken? 

Many thanks for any input.

That looks terminal if the plastic is the outer drum. Usually caused by something metal left in a pocket that gets into the drum.

Thank you for the reply. Terminal as in the drum could be replaced do you think? Or new washing machine time?

Drums can be £200+ and a massive job to do. Check Ransom Spares to find out the cost of a new outer drum.
