Hello, my name is George..This sounds like it is going to take a bit of time and many questions to detect what has happened... However, firstly, can you give me the full Enr and FD from the inner of the door. Secondly, is it possible for you to take an image of the object and post it here?Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
First question.... Does anyone in your household do welding? That is the tip of a mig welder
My son's friend brought a welder to the house recently. There was a problem with it and they were taking it apart. It is an arc welder.
Could this have caused a screeching sound getting trapped in the pump mechanism. My son fished this out and was not sure quite what it was.
i have put the washer on a spin and it makes a noise like a cog going round and then after a minute or so starts to spin and eventually gets up to full speed running very quietly. i will do a full wash in the morning just to make sure it is back to normal. i will let you know.
The welding tip will have certainly made some sort of a noise and because it would stop the appliance from pumping out it would also have prevented it from spinning due to the water left in the appliance.If it was running against the metal inner drum, yes, it could have made a screeching noise.As for the cog noise, that sounds like the motor brushes are running across a raised segment on the commutator of the motor... Youcan check this by taking off the back and listening whilst turning the motor by hand.. Problems with the motor can also cause screeching.
If you wish to ring me whils the noises are apparent, you can do so by ringing my work phone #07787182156.
We ran a full cycle wash this morning. It all ran perfectly.
At least i know what the metal part was now. The machine spins smoothly and empties. The only thing seems to have been this welding tip. My son says he has to push his fingers right into this "propeller" inside the pump filter. i wonder if the piece got caught up in this somehow. Anyway alls well that ends well. Many thanks for your prompt and accurate diagnosis of the metal bit.
