Switch it off at the mains and then feel around the space between the drum
and the casing of the machine. You should find things that feel like nylon
pads which stop the front of the metal drum from rubbing against the metal
casing. If these are worn (rough to the touch) or missing, then you'll need
to replace them.
Or it could be the back bearing which holds the drum to the back web
assembly that is worn out.
Or the belt could just be loose and needs replaced.
Or the motor bearing is loose or worn.
Or you something stuck between the drum and the casing or other internal
Thanks - took it apart as much as I could and couldn't find anything.
Man came this morning. Had a quick feel around and found a lump of
fluff stuck inside the mechanism. Bugger. Nice bloke though. He fixed
my dishwasher which has had a niggling little problem for the past year
and just charged me the basic call out charge He asked me if there was
anything else he could look at as I was paying him for an hour anyway.
There are some good people out there.
