Hi Ed,

Thats good news. Do you know what type of bolt holds the grill on. I
looked at this but my metric alen key did not fit

If you have the same model as ours, what we found was:

To free the drum on the washing machine, you open the lid and you
will see a grill on the side of the machine towards the bow. Take
this grill off and you will probably find it is filled with sediment.
This you can remove by chipping out with a screwdriver. Next you
spray the bearing / seal inside with WD-40 from inside the drum.
After WD-40 treatment, you free the drum by carefully rocking of the
drum back and forth. You can do all of this without dismantling the
machine - as we did of course!
Good luck!
