Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your appliance; I know that can be frustrating.

Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Where exactly is that sound coming from ?


Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I think it Comes from inside the machine after being on for 10 -15 mins

OK, unplug the appliance and pull it out.

Then remove the top off the appliance and check if the belt is intact/worn out.

If that is fine, then check if the drum is stiff to turn by hand or you can easily turn it.

Looking at the age of the appliance it might be bearings that will need replacement.

Let me know how it goes.
