Sounds like rocks in machine on final spin

There is a really loud sound like rocks spinning in the machine. It is definitely there during final/fast spin - not sure about other spins.

    Thanks for the answer, but my machine is just a year old - surely it can't be that dire?!

The rear drum seal has leaked water into the rear bearing. Sorry, but the repair is expensive and difficult. It's time for a new washer. Look into the LG models, which are direct drive. Please don't bother rating this, as anything other than a FixYa drops my rating, and I know you don't want to kill the messenger, right?

    On a machine that new I would not expect a rear bearing failure. More likely cause in your case would be an object between the inner and outer drum. I've seen small pocket knives and cartridge fuses, you might see a part from a pen or coins, whatever may have been in pockets. If you are lucky you might be able to get it out without tearing machine completely apart. Some machines have an internal heater which can be removed to access the inner drum area, or you may be able to get at it the same way it got in. (at the front, near the door seal)

    Look through the holes in the inner wash tub and around that front seal area at the bottom.

Water leaking and loud noise and rattling on final spin cycle


Turn the drum by hand and if you hear any noises it is the rear bearing. If there is no noise then remove the front bottom panel and take out the coin trap on the pump and check those hoses.
