Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have an old Defy Automaid washing machine. When it spins it makes a terrible sound (as if it is breaking apart) and

My aunt gave me her old washing machine. I suspect that the problem is due to the fact that it was transported whithout the "transporting mechanism" as it was lost. I have already tried to level it, but that does not help. Otherwise the mischine is working fine.

SOURCE: Clanking noise during spin cycle

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series washing machine - loud banging at end of spin

With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.

Basket drive block part number is 389140

If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further.
Good luck!

SOURCE: defy automaid won't spin

Put the machine on its side and check the wires to the pump. i found one of the wires broke off the lug on the pump side. Could be from all the vibration from the drum. The machine will only spin if the drainage is working.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Washing machine - terrible noise during spin cycle

sounds like the drum is rubbing on some part of an exterior wall of your washer,.or you have a bearing going, or worst case scenario you have transmission problems and need to get a serviceman in to check your machine.But firstI would call the manfacturer and explain the problem they may be able to resolve it over the phone give them model no. Make and year of manfacture they hopefully can help you with this

Why would my Defy 600 Automaid drum stop spinning?


The pressure sensor might be faulty. Something is telling the control that it is too full of water so the pump starts to empty it to avoid flooding. This is usually the water level or pressure switch.

See manual for your unit at this site.

Defy Automaid Washing Machine Model DAW265 - WONT SPIN Hi there: The machine runs perfectly through all cycles - fills up properly - drains perfectly - but will not spin at all [sounds like it is...


Possible fault of the program controller unit, the program output to the motor when the cycle is in the SPIN mode must be checked.
Make sure that the output is available, check using a multimeter to confirm. If absent then check the program module to confirm.
