  • Washing Machine (Indesit IWME126) making a clunk sound each time the drum turns past a specific point.

    Drive pulley? Bearings?

    DIY repairable? Call someone out? Replace it (it's ~7 years old, bottom of the range but in good condition otherwise)?

    Annoying as I'd only just treated it by cleaning out random stones and sludge from the pump pre-chamber and this is how it rewards me.

  • We had an old Hotpoint that did this; turns out it was the bearings. Ours developed enough play that it rubbed against the seals on the spin cycle and started to catch fire. When the tech came out he said that it was still electrically sound and just needed a new bearing, but by that point we'd already replaced it...
