Carried out your instructions.
Pressed tub back several times and turned drum back and forward.
Noise comes at end of maximum 1200 spi. When it finishes and carries on the cycle metal"scraping" noise heard.
Other than that nothing wrong with machine. Washes fine.
Abroad and don't trust local Engineers!
Not good with tools; don't have any here.
Could borrow and take top off machine for simple thing.
Machine is Zanussi ,FL 1290 washer.
APmc is photo?
Ok. Will have to be tomorrow. Fiesta here.
What will that mean.
No noise still problem?
Have yet to clear lint and rubbish collector at bottom right. Might be a foreign item - not cleaned since lasr year.
Zanussi engineer should come today.
May need some more advice on what engineer says about machine.
Of course I shall give a rating of excellent.
Engineer came 4.00 Spanish time.
He tested the drum back and fore etc. All ok.
He insisted on doing a full load wash. This did not go down well with my wife. She had already done all the washing. Eventually the heavy bed cover was sacrificed for the wash.
Went through the whole cycle perfectly.
Told him to wait till after the full spin. We listened. Came to end and NOT A SQUEEK OR ANY SOUND!
He then lectured me on coins buttons in the filter and said wait until the machine actually broke down.
He said machine was in perfect condition and could not believe machine 11 years old.
After he went we rewashed bed cover with soap this time.
Came to critical spin bit and there was a SQUEEK!
This time listened attentively and both my wife and I agreed that right after the finish of the spin at the time the machine was a"changing directions" or going onto do something else it was not metallic but as if something needed oiling.
Thus shall use machine until it actually breaks down.
Any final thoughts before I rate everything as extremely satisfied.
