Washer makes clunking noises.......

When the washer starts to go into the spin cycle it makes a loud clunking noises. It also does it when we tried it with no clothes in the washer. It doesn't seem to be off balance and we are wondering if the pump is the problem or could the brakes be pressing against the tub?

    Its more like a rubbing noise and now the drum won't turn. It starts at the beginning of the spin cycle and continues thru the spin cycle. Could the brakes be stuck? and if so, how do we check to see if this is the problem?

    So do we remove the panel in the front or the back and how to we get to the motor or remove it?

Walt, mine is making the metal to metal noise, and it's on the 15 minute soak cycle. It is also when it is agitating

You didn't give to much detail about the noise, other then clunking. Does it sound like it's metal against metal? Does it sound hollow? When does the noise take place before, during or after the spin cycle.

The easiest thing to do is check to see if the motor is loose, or if you might have too much slop or slake in the belt, if you do then replace and readjust the belt.

    Your brake is basically your motor, Go for the easy stuff first by checking your belt.

    The panel would have to be removed from the back, depending on the age will depend oh how many screws you will have. You can also get to it from the bottom but you then have to lay the unit down. If your able to remove the back you should be able to start the unit and watch how things work, this could also tell you more of whether it is a belt or brake problem, you don't want to try and start it if it's on the side. You would be asking for a whole lot of problems.

Whirlpool wtw5100sq0 clunks when put on spin cycle


Does the washer currently work fine aside from the loud clunking noise? Does the clunking noise continue or is it just one loud clunk when it starts to spin? If its just one loud clunk then that is not a problem just ignore it as that is the clutch spring releasing, it probably starting making noise from the grease getting washed off when the washer over filled.
However how did the washer overfill? That issue should be addressed too. Sometimes though, if the tub is not centered from a heavy load the water will spill over the back but its not really an overfill.

Washer won't agitate or spin out.


Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

Washer makes noises


You said, when the washer is going into spin cycle it makes a loud clunking noise. You are wondering if this could be the brakes or possibly the pump?

Sounds like this!

Faulty direct drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)
The direct drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.

It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.
it can also be a broken spring or strut dependping on your washes make and type
