Whirlpool KAWS677EQ0 Washer - squealing noise when spinning

Occasionally this 11 year old washer will make a squealing sound when spinning. Don't think it has a belt, so unsure what could be making the noise.

SOURCE: washer won't drain, makes loud noise

This problem, or some variation thereof evidently is very common with these Whirlpool Washers!  I have same problem.  So far, best I have found is at  http://applianceguru.com/forum2/5958.html#
diagnosis by someone who knows.  What William Burk says there makes sense.  However, to get to the drive block there's quite a bit of disassembly required.  I am stopped because I cannot get the spanner nut off.  Hope this gives you some help toward finding a more comprehensive answer

SOURCE: replacing spin belt whirlpool clothes washer

There is indeed a drive belt to the imperial 70. Problem more likely is in the 'wig-wag' unit that engages and disengages the spin clutch and the agitator drive

SOURCE: Whirlpool washer agitates but makes a very loud noise

It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.

SOURCE: washer will not spin

this machine doesnt use a belt, instead it uses a motor coupling part number 285753, yes easy to repair, search you tube for whirlpool washer motor coupling, easier to watch then try to explain.

Roper washer RAX4232PQO doesn't agitate or spin


It sounds like you may have a broken motor coupling. This is a common problem that usually occurs through normal wear and tear. Replacement couplers are more resilient and resist breaking much better. If the washer will fill, will not agitate or spin, but will still drain, these are the symptoms of a broken motor coupling. The accompanying noise of the motor engaging and a rattling/grinding sound is also a common symptom. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase a replacement on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses Whirlpool parts, so these instructions will apply.

We have a whirlpool duet washing machine that is about 7 years old. During trhe spin cycle it makes a loud noise. Not the typical "airplane noise." There is also an odor. A burning engine odor. If you...


The rubber belt is worn and slipping under load. (like a fan belt)
There could also be something caught in the belt or pulleys; clear it out and it should work.
If worn, replace belt soon...


Hope this helps!

Squealing noise during spin cycle


The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.
