Sounds like a problem in the gear case. This would be a transmision replacement.

SOURCE: Clanking noise during spin cycle

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.

SOURCE: ensignia maytag washer noise

The bearings on Maytag Ensignia's are part of the seals that keep the water in. Once you start hearing the bearings begining to go, you likely will have a leak following shortly thereafter as the bearing greased is washed out by your laundry soap. Up front. This is a procedure that requires specialty tools and takes me about 45-60 minutes to complete. The easiest way to tackel this job is to take your model number (just on the back side of the console) and take it to a local appliance parts store. Ask them for a tub seal kit. (I can't give you a part number since there is no model number listed) but they should be able to pull it up for you. When they bring it up to the front, inside the seal kit is not only step-by-step directions, but also the part numbers for the specialized tools required as well. If you opt to go the repairman route, I'll forewarn you, the company I worked for charged around 250-300 for the repair on this. Send me back a message if you have any troubles or other questions.

SOURCE: When the washer spins, it is making a terrible

the noise is a drum bearing, it is pressed on the back of the washer drum, until recently you would have to buy a new drum for around $700.00 but there are a few companies out there selling a bearing kit, just go to EBAY and do a serch for whirlpool duet bearing kit. they are not easy to replace but it can be done by a novice with a few tools and allot of pay chance......GOOD LUCK

My Kenmore Elite He4t front load washer is making a terrible noise when it starts spinning the clothes. What could be wrong?


Sounds like the rear bearing. If you hear the noise when you manually spin the drum or if the drum has any movement when you lift up on it then you need major repairs

Hi my hotpoint washing machine is near 3 years old the last few weeks it is making a terrible noise when on spin only. \r\nthe noise is really loud but everything is washing and drying the same its just...


Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

Zanussi ZJD1219 Washer/Dryer - noisy spin and dirty spots


Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed, and the marks on clothes are probably grease spots from the main bearings.
It is quite an involved repair, and not one that I would recommend you tackle yourself unless you are competent to do so,as it really is involved.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
