Hi Connie, The problem your describing is most likely the water pump. They have an impeller(encased propeller) that creates the force to drain the water out of the machine and if it breaks it would be very noisy and the washer would not drain. I hope this helps you out and good luck !
I had the same problem. Loud noises during draining operation. It turned out to be the drain pump motor. The impeller that pumps the water wears out on the shaft, and then starts to flop around creating vibrations, and in turn the noises you hear. The pump is a very inexpensive part. $35-50. There is some work involved to get to it, and to replace it, but not overly complex. Just watch the motor wire connections. Take a picture with your camera/phone of the connections. I would recommend watching the youtube video in the link provided on how to get to the motor, as some of the steps can be challenging, especially the drum seal retaining ring removal and reinstallation steps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cPl22OC9f4 .
Hello Bill Johnson - Is the washer draining or spinning? Could it possibly be a humming noise? If it is not doing either or and making a humming noise then it could possibly have a restriction in the drain line. Or either the belt is loose and will have to be put around the transmission and then spin it on to the motor or there is an issue with the lower/upper bearing. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair the washer.
If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.
while your washer will draining, in addation to the noise during the agitate cycle is it making a similar noise during the drain/spin cycle? if that is the case the motor coupler is broken i have attached a youtube video that will show you step by step how to replace the coupler
Hi, The F33 code is a pump failure code. The control
unit is not measuring the proper amp draw on the pump during pump out.
Remove lower panel and unplug then replug in the pump 2 or 3 times to
remove any corrosion. While your down there, take the front of the pump
off to check for any blockages.BE SURE TO UNPLUG YOUR WASHER WHILE
Something has become stuck in the drain pump. 1. Remove the back cover. The drain pump is in the lower left corner. 2. Tilt machine forward for easier access. 3. Unplug the pump motor power plug. 4. Loosen the hose clamp from the tub. 5. Remove the drain hose connection from the pump. 6. Remove the three screws securing the pump to the tub. 7. Remove debris from pump. 8. Replace pump. 9. Merry Christmas...
Does the washer make noise while the drum is spinning? Or, is making noise when the drain pump comes on? If the drum is spinning and making a lot of noise the rear bearings are usually bad. They cannot be removed from the drum, however. The entire outer tub shell has to be replaced, because the bearings are molded into the plastic. If it's only making noise when the drain pump comes on during the drain cycle, your drain pump may be obstructed in some way, or the pump itself could be bad. Getting inside the machine to check either component is not easy, because the door has to be removed, along with the front panel, rubber door seal, and top of the machine. Sorry, this may not be an easy fix for you. But, I hope I can lead you in the right direction. Let me know if you need further guidance.
