Likely something else like bra wire sticking up from drain hose rubbing basket. remove front kick panel or rear panel and remove large hose from bottom of tub. clip usually positioned in rear. if unit with heater then heater and clip can be felt inside tub. check inside hose

Indsit washingmachine: making scraping noise when spinning. metal drum inside feels loose and is leaning forward making it scrape on whatever is underneath. how do i stop the drum doing this?

If the inner drum is loose the bearing may have failed or the drum shaft spider may have broken. the scrapping will be the drum hitting the heating element.

I get a loud scraping noise when I first start up the dryer

It sounds like the drum is off balance, the drum could be scrapping along the side of the dryer. Check for a loose bolt on the drum assembly. Once it starts running the drum levels out and the scrapping noise goes away

ED 56 Dryer Scrapping sound like metal on metal when the drum spins

Most dryers are supported by a bearing at the rear and teflon pads at the front. Sounds like one of the pads is worn out leaving the drum to ride on the metal frame. The bearing can also make that sound if it breaking down. Most dryers have enough play that you can lift the drum and turn it. If the noise stops then the pads are bad. You can usually find them at most dryer wholesale or online appliance part stores.

Hot point WF451 Issue. I want change the door rubber between the door and drum. How do I do this? Also the machine is making a noise on fast spin as if there is something in the drum catching. I have...

Hi for changing the door seal check out the video section on there are a few videos on the wf including bearing change which also covers the door seal as well. As far as the noise in your machine it could be almost any thing...if it's a scrapping noise it may be a bra wire caught between the drum and container, if its a tapping noise it may just be loose wires hitting on the cabinet or you may have a coin between the drum and container if it's a loud rattle, you could also have something in the pump's hard to diagnose noises without actually hearing them sorry

Noise when spinning fast

A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth
