Washer makes a loud noise while trying to spin

The washer doesn't have a problem filling or draining. When in the spin or agitate cycle, it just makes a very loud noise and will not do anything. This is a direct drive unit and doesn't have a belt to tighten. I'm not sure what it is. Can you help.

Re: Washer makes a loud noise while trying to spin

The problem most likely what it sounds like is the motor coupler which cost somewhere around 20 bucks from a repair store or parts place. the motor coupler sits between the motor and the transmission and transfers motion from one to the other if its making a loud clicking sound that sounds like gears then thats it and you'll be surprised to see that its simply made out of rubber and plastic. Its a little bit of an advanced repair make sure to unplug the washer because u will have to drop the motor off to take the coupler off the transmission parts required flattip phillips head 1/4 nutdrive and something to put over the coupler to bang onto the motor and to the transmission. Gl its really not that hard a professional can do it in about 15 minutes it might take u an hour maybe make sure to take the whole cabinet off do not try to take it apart from the back

Loud grinding motor protesting humming w/no spinning or agitating

The drum/agitator bearings are bad I believe, or the gearbox has been damaged. This is an expensive repair. I would strongly consider buying a new washer. This is a great time to buy appliances since the stores are really competing, and the prices are at their lowest.

Terrible noise when agitating

Your transmission has gone out. The reason the spin cycle works is because the transmission spins two different ways and you agitate way stripped the gear. Some places rebuild them. Try with your local stores maybe they can rebuild it or get you a good used one. If not you can order a new one from
