    Please can someone help, my washing machine, under 2 years old started to make aircraft noises and now the drum won't spin at all. I suspect it's the drum bearing but can't find any info on getting this part or whether it can be replaced without changing whole drum.

    Can find very little about problems of this kind with this particular model.

    Thanks

    There's 3 different drums for your mc. One is a split drum 2 are complete welded ones. All cost 100.00 plus the heater is needed as well , is there play in the inner drum ..

    thanks for responding -yes which is why I thought it could be the bearing, i presume from your response you can't just replace the bearing?
    i've taken the top off and the belt had come off, managed to get belt back on and manually turned the drum but the belt kept slipping towards the drum on the drum pulley wheel.
