Hi,

While rotating the drum (also manually), there's a strong grinding sound at about 1/4 of a full rotation. 3/4 are completely smooth and 1/4 makes grinding sound like a metal to metal friction.

Any idea what it may be?

attached a short video.

Thank you.

Hi,

It sounds like something is stuck between the inner and tub rubbing when you turn the drum, or your drum bearing or spider support arm is cracked or broken.

But we have no tech information on European models, you will need to try a appliance repair forum closer to where you live.

Thank you Jake.

It doesn't seem to be as the classic "grinding" sound you hear when the drum bearing is worn out, does it?

Nope. You will need to remove the inner tub to see what's rubbing.
