Bearings failing already on 2022 Bespoke AI washing machine?

(Topic created on: 2 weeks ago)
Hi all,

RRP £949 when it was bought. Not happy. 

My 10 month old Samsung WW11BB944DGHS1 has started making squeaky noises and I fear that this could be the bearing seal which stops moisture from reaching the bearings.

Only 10 months old, used very carefully and yet this is the result. It's only recently where the machine has almost been utilised to the full and has detected full loads. That said, the loads have never been over 9kg. 9kg is 2kg below the rated capacity (11kg). 

Am I wrong (could it be something else), and if it is the bearing seal and the bearings eventually do fail, would Samsung consider this as being caused by 'normal wear and tear' as they do when their paper thin door seals rip or not? I'm not happy, and can only hope that if the bearings do go, Samsung accepts full responsibility and either replace the bearings, or perhaps replace the machine because the control panel has been glitchy in the past and this has been discussed with customer service via a live chat before. 

Anyway, apart from that, it's a brilliant machine. It washes, rinses, and spins extremely well. It's just a shame how quickly it's showing its age.
