Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Grinding noise from hell - no spin, no agitation (except my own!).

Last night we we washing close when the washing machine started to make a terrible grinding noise like 2 "unaligned" worm gears hitting each other. I believe this is a direct drive machine.

Over-all symptoms are:
1) Makes a grinding noise during spin or rinse cycle cycle - barrel does not spin.
2) No noise during wash cycle - agoitator does not spin.

    I had the same grinding noise. Looked at the belt and drum seemed to turn by hand so we ran it longer to see what would happen. The next day the drum ceased to function in the rinse cycle and the machine is now down. I am ready to pull it out and pull out the drum to see if drive in motor is shot.

    Loud Screeching noises during the rinse and spin cycle

  • Anonymous Mar 31, 2014

    The drum of the front loader Hoover Electron800 Dual Spin washing machine does not move freely if rotated by hand. The washing machine is making high pitch, grinding noises through-out all the cycles. During the final rinse cycle, the clothes are still very wet. Drying during spinning is not effective. What could be the causes of these probllems? How can I fix the washing machine?

Run the washer without a load in it. Open the lid when it goes to agitate and see if it is actually agitating by hold the lid switch down
with a small screwdriver or a pen. You may hear the grinding noise while it's agitating, just not as pronounced. You most likely just need the "motor coupling" on the unit.
Post back your results.

Terrible noise when agitating


Your transmission has gone out. The reason the spin cycle works is because the transmission spins two different ways and you agitate way stripped the gear. Some places rebuild them. Try with your local stores maybe they can rebuild it or get you a good used one. If not you can order a new one from sears.com
