"was washing a heavy settee throw" and if the drum now isn't moving freely = Drum bearings gone (as has been said..)

At twenty years old, not worth bothering with a repaid

Had a look in the back of washer and decided to get a new 1 from currys.
Bosch have a 2 year guarantee for ALL machines but this one caught my eye with a 5 year guarantee

It would cost @ &350 but the peace of mind from the guarantee would be great,what do you think?

And thanks for all the helpful advice

The 5 year warranty is a manufacturers warranty, you get that regardless of where you buy it from, as long as you register it within 90 days of purchase, they'll increase the normal 3yr warranty to 5 yrs:

The motor had a smell of smoke and drum is sticky so I decided a nice new 1 will do the trick
