Hi The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:
Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.
Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.
Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.
Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

Is it unbalanced spin and noisy? If it is, then you bearings are out. If just unbalanced check your base and washer support inside machine.

Very noisy when on spin. The machine seem to be balanced however the noise on spn is like a jet taking off. it gets louder as the spinning speed increases.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Noisy & shaking spin cycle and smell


The shaking could be your shocks beginning to go bad, an unbalanced load, unbalanced machine, or even possibly weak flooring. As far as the smell you can purchase a product called "AFFRESH" at your local parts distributor which works well to removed the mildew in the gasket. You just put the tablets in and run the machine through a cycle. You could also wipe the gasket out with a wet rag.
Be sure to leave the door cracked open between cycles this will help prevent mildew from building up.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Noisy when trying to spin. display uL instead of time remaining. Stopped, opened lid and redistributed load. Started up again. cycle continued but still displaying uL. Not sure if load still unbalanced?...


REPLACE YOUR SUSPENSION RODS. You can get them at a discount applicance parts store online for about $60. Our washer is about 8 years old and has been getting unbalanced on every load. I replaced the suspension rods tonight and and it solved the problem.

Noise during spin cycle


The suspension springs are not expensive and is usually the problem with a noisy (unbalanced) spin cycle.

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
