Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.Please can you let me know the ENR of the appliance and which area the knocking comes from
Sorry for the late reply.. I was detained on a family emergencyCan you tell me if you are able to rock the appliance at all when it is not operating?Can you also open the door and check the edge of the metal drum by lifting it to see if there is any upward/downward movement.. rotate the drum a third and try again.. Then do the same again for the last third.
OK... Also, at what period of the wash does the noise begin
No rocking when not operating. Very slight movement 2 to 3 mm upwards and downwards. Noise is during spin periods - draining during wash and final spin programme.
Can you take out all the washing... Check that up/down again movement for me; is it still 2-3mm... Spin the drum by hand, is there a slight rumble?
Movement still the same - it is little or none really and there is no rumble, just a whirr as I would expect.
OK.. What I was getting you to do was to check the bearings...Now I need you to do the same edge test on the drum, but this time not pressing up from the top edge of the drum, but pressing downwards from the bottom edge of the drum... This time what you are looking for is more movement in any given area than others...Just try that for me please
There is slightly more movement to the sides but the bottom is just as the top little or no movement
OK.. That is fine.. we were looking for any obvious damage to the drum support.. and we can now rule that out..
Now I can narrow it down to one very likely suspect.. The shock absorbers are no the most likely suspects.. You can check these from the rear of the appliance.. Waggle them in the center to see if there is any movement.. If there is, then these will need changing.shock absorbersDISCOUNTWhen you get to the Checkout page..
