Drum wont spin looks lopsided


The "Guides" around the drum are worn out or the bearing is bad, which usually causes it. Replace the bearing and guides. You Tube has many videos on these fix's. and there is a good chance your machine will have one to view.

While finishing a load of laundry, during the final spin/rinse cycle the washer made an aweful pounding and banging noise. It was so loud I heard it from the other side of the house and went running to see...


Yes I do know unfortunely the basket support broke. This support is mounted on to the back of the basket and goes through the rear bearing and the back half of the outer tub. This is a very extensive repair .the unit has to be totally disassembled ,if it only broke the support it is about 100.00 , but if the rear tub bearing is also damaged you may consider replacing the unit with a new one either way this is an expensive and extensive repair...

My whirlpool top loader bangs around during final spin


Hi,

Kindly provide few details :-

1. Make and model of the washer?
2.How old the washer is?
3. Is it banging only at high speed or even on slow speed?
4. Is it only during the final spin or all the time during spin?
5. If you move the drum by hand, is there any noise? Could you turn the drum easily?

Kindly answer all the questions.

Thanks!!

Hi all i have a big problem heard a big bang the


Hello,
When it was fitted did the installer remove the transit bolts from the rear of the machine because it sounds as if it has done damage to the drum and housing when it went into a spin.
Hope this helps.

Good Luck

We heard a large BANG and now it is so noisy


The rear bearing in most front loaders lasts an average of 5 years under normal usage. Spin the drum manually with your hand and seee if it is nice and smooth and quiet. If the bearing is ok it is probable that 1 of the shocks is broken on the bottom.

Loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds like agitator is slipping,then banging. No noise during spinning cycles.


Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

This is your Agitator:

It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc239i1195917&PartID=1195917

This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Machine banging when in fast spin


if the noise is coming from inside the drum then it will be the bear ings if this machine is less than 3years old then this is what bust hotpoint they changed the bearing setup and put a spring on it which its the spring that is the complete failure u need to take the complete drum out strip this put the new bearing set in but without the spring this wil put at least 2-3years on the bearings its a big job and costs about £120 to fix u r accually better off buying a completely different washer no good are hotpoints anymore m8
