Squeak in Kenmore HE 2plus front load washer when drum spins

When the drum spins you hear a squeak that sounds like a spring squeak in a matress. The noise frequency is based on how fast the drum is spinning. So if the drum is spinning to dry there are numerous and when it slows down there are less squeaks. This a new noise that I haven't heard before. It happens with large or small loads and with each rotation of the drum.

We opened the top of the washing machine and there are some suspension springs.
All it needed was some lubrification. Prior to putting the top back on we put a load in
and watched it and there was no more noise.

Squeaking noises are hard to find unless u open it and pin point where its coming from.. you can open the back cover if you are comfortable doing so.. let it run to see if you can heard... sometimes the bolt holding the pulley to the drum is loose and need to be tighten. Other possible is the shocks came loose or when install new.. the shipping materials were not remove..

There can be a loose bearing between the drum and the outer wall of the machine but, there is definitely something loose. I know that this is not what you would like to hear but, the best advice anyone can give you is have your machine looked at by a specialist. Moreover, going to your washing machine retail store, should have the equipment you are looking for, or you can search for it online and compare prices.

I have a Kenmore [2005]front load washer that vibrates severely when in high spin and is quite noisy. I have had the top panel, back panel, and bottom front kick panels off and I can not find any obvious...


you may need to change the bearing on the drum easy way to check is while the door is open try to manually spin it with your hand if you hear a grinding sound then the bearing is gone

Dryer is starting to squeak, does the dryer have a belt


yes they do...
Remove the panel below the dryer door to access the screws to remove the front of the dryer. Here is a breakdown of what you are looking for. The noise is probably from the rear bearing -http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1851

Our dryer has a terrible squeak. We replaced the


The terrible squeak is probably the idler pulley shaft spalling in the idle pulley mount. When the idler pulley siezes to to pulley shaft it spins in the mount and makes a horrible racket.

It can be the motor bearings also but I doubt it at this time. With the belt off you can spin the motor and listen for any odd sound. If you hear nothing then the problem is definately the idler pulley assy.

It is normal for the drum to float in place. When there is a problem with the drum or drum felts, you usually hear a cyclic scrape or grinding sound that is concurrent with each rotation of the drum.

Can not run spin cycle bang bang bang


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Squeaking noise from left side, sounds like spring on low speed. would mounting on a platform do any good


I had a problem with the Left Spring the hold the drum up. I took the cover off and started the machine to be sure that I got the right squeak.

The soap dispenser was in the way to get some WD40 to the spring. I would have to remove the front panel to get at the spring. I didn't like that idea.

I got a brainwave. I fill a cup with some WD40, got a plastic straw with a bendable neck and **** up a little oil, pinched the straw to stop the WD falling out, I slipped the straw down the side of the dispenser right over the spring and let it drop.

Work like a charm, no more squeak

Squeak upon spinning


Hi, I wanted to comment on this because I have the Majestic MJ9200 Washing machine front load for the RV. I am having the exact same problem and I cannot use my machine at this time. This is NOT an unbalanced load problem. An unbalanced load will cause a loud banging noise because the drum is off balance. There is something wrong inside your machine. Mine never had this problem before either and an unbalanced load does not cause this horrible screech while on the spin cycle. My machine like yours made the noise only on certain spin speeds, high 1500 rpm spin the first time and when I adjusted the spin cycle just to see what happened it stopped making that horrible noise. I washed another load and it began that same screetch while spinning and it was then in all RPM ratios available on my model.

My husband took the top off the machine and could not see anything evident but when looking into the front of the machine we could tell that is seems the interior drum is much looser in the washing machine than in the dryer. There are two drums on the front load. A larger outer drum and a smaller inner drum. The inner drum is what is looser in our machine and the noise is a very loud screetch while spinning the water out of the clothes.

Is your machine under any kind of warranty? Mine is not and I am waiting to get it fixed.

Good luck on getting yours fixed and perhaps we can both help each other out on this one although we have different brands of machines...
