Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - its sounds like your bearings have gone, is there any up and down movement between outer and inner drums?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes there is a lot of movement.
But the drum spins freely
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So the white grey stuff is outer drum lining then
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
As you spin the drum do you get a rumbling noise? Spin it by hand with the door open.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
Grey stuff, it can either be hard scale or as the outside of the inner tub is like a cheese grater and it comes off in short strips it can be the outer plastic drum.

Yes it's a bit noisy and the debris makes sense. Is it viable to repair of replace its an Electrolux egw1440 w

OK you are lucky in sofar as it is possible to repair your appliance but only if you are prepared to do it yourself as the parts alone will come to just short of £200 and its not an easy job, you need lots of room to work around the appliance and plenty of patience. It will take you about 2 - 3 hours to do it.

But that's not my line of expertise I'm afraid I'm more a motorcycle type guy. But thanks for all your anyway and happy new year.
