Thank you in advance for any help.
Wifey overloaded the clothes washer (4 towels, clothes and a bath mat). We had to pull the very wet clothes out and it then finished its cycle...loudly. Now we have an issue I think between the inner and outer drum?
Here are the symptoms/details. Also posted links to videos of the issue below.
Spin cycle produces loud knocking. Usually the change in direction of the spin results in a noise that sounds to me like a rubber part being stuck between the inner and outer drum. Also, though I am not sure if this existed before the problem, the bottom of the inner drum can be pulled vertically more then I think used to be possible. Attempting to turn the inner drum by hand feels significant resistance that feels like rubber part sticking between the two drums?
If it does turn out to be the dreaded spider arm repair is it worth fixing and can an advanced DIY tackle it?
