    Especially loud on a light load, sounds like the drum or something is hitting the casing....usually refuses to spin on light load.

    Could this be the shock absorbers?

    I tried to remove what looked to be the worst of the two as moving the drum showed a lot of up and down movement on it....I could only free the bottom securing pin but once I did I could easily slide the inner metal tube up and down within the plastic outer housing tube, I'm guessing this isn't normal and that some resistance should be there to act as a damper?

    Top weight is secure and from what I can see/feel so is front weight, both drum holder springs are attached and in good order. No grinding whe turning the drum.

    Advice appreciated please.
