I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

Thanks for that.

Unplug it and remove the top off the appliance.

Then check if the belt is intact, let me know how it goes.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Belt is still intact

OK what kind of noise do you hear ?

If you turn the drum manually it turns freely ?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Its sould like the drum is loose sound to me it could bearings
And drum moves freely

OK and how old is it ?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
About 2years old

The grinding sound usually always indicate the bearing has gone and will need replacement.

The belt is intact and the drum moves freely hence, that confirms it is the bearing.

Strange that it is 2 years because if serial number is ***** it seems to be a 5 year old appliance.

The part is not costly however, as it takes too long to repair the cost of repair is as much as a new appliance.

To be honest it will be better to buy new one then to spend around £250 on repairs.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
