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: washing machine makes a loud rattling sound

Hi.k.
Even though you have cleaned filter, there could still be something in the pump, you need to remove the pump and check there is nothing in it.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

SOURCE: clanking machine

Sizeable repair. Basically the seal and 2 bearings need replacement. Very possibly the spider assembly has broken away from the drum. Quickest way to check is to run machine once bearings and seal have been replaced to see if you are still getting any noise and imballance.

The washer won't spin. It just makes a clanking sound and it doesn't spin the water out. It just started doing this. The washer was fine an hour ago. Please advise. Thank you, Charlyne


It sounds like
1.either your load is unbalanced, (redistribute the clothes), or
2.the drum bearing has failed, you can check this by seeing if there is play in the inner drum by moving it up and down against the outer drum, or
3. a shock absorber or spring has failed (when you wobble the drum around by hand it should spring back to the centre without any clanking or
4. Something has slipped between the 2 drums and is rattling about but that wouldn't really cause what I would describe as 'clanking' but more rattling.
Difficult to diagnose remotely but they are the main causes.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

LOUD RATTLING NOISES ON SPIN CYCLE (SOUNDS LIKE MONEY OR MARBLES IN MACHINE)


you'll need to investigate further. It may even mean bringing in a professional to be sure the vibration damper rods are ok - to prevent future and costlier problems.

AEG OKO-Lavamat 1271 VI Turbo (Washer Dryer) 7-8 years old intergrated front loaderSuddenly began clanking during the spin cycle. with no load works normally with a light load, sometimes works on some...


Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
At this age , I don't think this is an economical repair to undertake.
Better to replace with a new one.
