Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Makes a very loud noise on spin cycle. Seems to worsen with larger loads.

My washer makes a lot of noise during the spin cycle. It seems to be even worse if I have a larger load inside the washer. The washer makes so much noise that you have to shut the laundry room door to even have a conversation. Not sure what could cause the problem or how difficult it might be to fix. Any ideas?

Samsung front load washer, jerks and makes noise when it first starts spinningthen it smooths out, and works fine.


on many machines that is normal, the shaking continues until the load is distributed relative evenly around the spinning drum. It is also possible it is the main bearing but I am not sure.

Washer making loud noise and wont spin


Check and see if the inner drum is loose and floppy.if it is, it's likely the bearings have collapsed, and require replacement...If the drum feels stiff and tight, it could be that something is jammed between the inner and outer drums. Both situations could be costly...Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or 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.This will solve your problem.

My model #gltr1670aso makes loud noises during spin cycle


Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig
