SOURCE: GE Prodigy Washing machine making clunking noise

One common problem area is the clutch assembly. The clutch is built on top of the motor, the motor drives the clutch and the clutch assembly drives the rest of the washer. The clutch gets very noisy when parts inside are worn out. The shoes lining that drives the inner drum of the clutch wear off and you will get a metal on metal sound. Clutches often can be rebuilt, but sometimes they are too worn and replacing the whole clutch is the best repair. Please use this link here for clutch replace and repair info. The belt and pump may be the next items to check for noises. How to access the washer. Clutch repair help.

SOURCE: My washing machine makes a cluck sound at the end

Hi,

Not knowing what model machine you have, I would hazard a guess and say it is your break solenoid or break arm or a variation on a break system.

After the spin cycle, the break solenoid or motor engages a break arm to stop and lock your spinning drum. The loud clunk is normal especially in Simpson and Hoover top load machines.

You can check this by putting the machine on a spin cycle. Once the machine gets up to speed, open the door. You will hear the clunck and then the drum stops abrublty.

If that is the case, it is normal and no need to worry about it. However, it you did not have the noise before, then best to get it checked out by a repairer.

Regards
Ash

Clunk noise when turning right


Could be the drive axle, but may also be a shifting lower control arm or strut. Usually a faulty drive axle clunks every time the axle turns.

My shower drain gurgles when the washing machine drains


The drain from your washer is tied to your shower drain and it is receiving air from your shower drain. Maybe your washer drain is not vented. This should not be a major concern if you can live with the noise.

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!


Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.

Clunking during spin


see if the shocks are not broken. if you spin the wash basket by hand and hear a grinding noise, then your bearing would most likely be bad
