Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer keeps throwing off the drive belt and is making intermittent grinding noises when the drum is turned as if something is trapped- I suspect drum bearings.

Samsung waching machine won't drain


If you don't have the DIY skills to fix what is probably the drum bearings or water pump gone then an appliance engineer is your next bet. Is there excessive movement in the drum itself? Does it turn smoothly? Switch off at the wall, remove the access panel and see if the drive belts are OK. The grinding noise could be a coin trapped between the drum and the drum casing. None of this is an easy fix. Keep in mind the age and usage if you get an estimate, maybe cheaper to buy new?

Lg tromm wm1812cw dum makes load noise when spinning


LOUD NOISES IN MACHINE;

LOT OF THINGS TO CHECK, THE BELT LOOSE OR WORN, THE CLUTCH, THE TRANNY, THE BEARINGS BOTH TUB SEAL AND BEARING, THE REAR DRUM BEARING,
THE DRIVE PULLEY- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.
THE TRANSMISSION, THE MOTOR COUPLER, THE MOTOR DRIVE BEARINGS,
THE DRIVE MOTOR- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.

Pump or bearing problem?


If this is a top load maytag, the pump bearing sleeve will rub the pump pulley and make a grinding noise. Replace the pump.

Very noisy on spin


hello there.....the noise you hear is most likley due to failed drum bearings or something trapped in the drum....test as follows....isolate machine....open the door...test the drum for up and down lift...there should be no movement at all....if all is well here...remove the lid and remove drive belt....spin the drum by hand and listen for any bearing noise (rumble). or metallic sound of something trapped in drum..if all is well here refit the lid temp...Then select spin and start machine...if motor is noisy then the problem is with the motor bearings

Broken washing machine


the machine water ceal and bearings must be changed before it spoil the drum.there is small metal under washer drum to give u sine noise if the drum unstable.and if you keep using the the machine,drum get demaged.mostly all front loading machines are like that.the test is,open back cover check if there is rust on the centre shaft,that means leaking throw the ceal and bearing.open the door and try to list up the inner drum if plays means problem with bearings as above.

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.


I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken

Grinding noise when drum rotates


may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.
