    Hi,

    I just put a wash on and when it came to the final spin a war started inside.. I normally piut my machine on and goto work... I've now found out that it's been doing this for a few weeks :eek:\

    I did notice a few weeks ago bits of debre (like a black bin liner torn up) and 2 tops has slight stains on them (brownish small circles).. I stupidly thought nothing of it at the time! I've also now noticed that by the seal there is what looks like some worn away plastic (like the casing (it's white plastic)) This would explain the bits in the dryer filer (dryer is a seporate device)

    Whats wrong with it? Am I in trouble??

    I must say... for a small machine... It makes a hell of a noise!

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Sounds like a broken spider and knackered bearings. The plastic is the front of the tub. Big job.

    No that's the pulley. The spider is on the rear of the inner drum.
