Indesit Drum Cracked


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hello there!

I own a IWME 27 washing machine by Indesit. I have the S/N if necessary.

Attached pictures of the problem + video:


Issues started appearing when the machine was loaded with probably too many bedsheets. I wonder if the cracking was caused by this.

Thank you

Hi. I would say that's a write-off. It can only be caused if either something gets inside and gets dragged around the back of the drum cutting into the back of the outer drum, or when the drum and/or bearings have excessive play due to wear or a fault, and allow the back of the revolving inner drum to cut into it.

Thank you Andy

While the Plastic Aid was able to solve the main leak, there were so many little ones that it made to write-it-off. I bought a Bosch washing machine, it'll arrive in the next couple of days.

I was very pleased to find out about PlasticAid - great tool! take care
