    i have a puller made just for this washer . if its real bad and falling apart you might be able to get a claw puller in there . i had to torch the race on time and ruined another one that way . so i bought a tool that has an adapter for this years ago ...... call an apliance guy or parts place around you and see if anyone has one you can borrow or rent

My Kenmore front loading washer sounds like a airplane taking off when it is in a spin cycle, is it supposed to sound like that. They are only two years old!!


Hi,
I can't tell you how many times a year I have that description about a front load washer.
I always find the same problem with them too. The tub seals has let water get into the rear drum bearing making the bearing fail.
Remove the back washer panel and look at the center of the tub. You will often see little trail of grease and water residue from the seal leaking.
If you do not have a extended warranty it's can be a costly repair as you can not just replace the rear bearing. You will need to replace the outer tub that come with the bearing pre installed and often the spinner shaft too.

Noise during high speed spin cycle


sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.

Front load washer problems


Hello,Most likely this will be the drum bearings.
Bearings normally last quite a long time but some will fail sooner than others. Quite often bearing failure is due to a faulty drum shaft seal which allows a small amount of water through and in to the bearings. The bearings then start to rust, which then accelerates the wear on the bearings.
Thanks

My washer is very loud when it is in the spin cycle.


if the machine is more than five years old or it gets a lot of use it sounds like the drum bearings are starting to wear. If it sounds like a jet taking off when it begins to spin then thats your problem. Basically bearings have seals which over time and use will eventually allow water in and the bearings will start to wear. Now is the time to get the bearings done before they seize. It can be a laborious and expensive job

Loud jet noise in spin cycle on Kenmore stackable top load washer


it is the drum bearing seal and it has gone out and ruined the bearings,you would need a lip seal kit and appropriate bearings for that particular unit,i do a lot of maytag front loads and it can take anywhere from 2 hours up to 8 hours depending how the old bearings come out and the damage to the bearing and seal surfaces,the sooner you get to it the less chance of severe damage it will cause,because water will kep on destroying bearings till they lock up and destroy the drive pulley

Kenmore front load washer when spinning sounds like a jet engine. It actually hurts you ears and you cannot shout loud enough to be heard. Spins out fine but is so loud.


It's probally the bearings are going bad. If you try to turn the drum by hand and it does not turn smoothly or has a rumbling sound, it means the bearings are bad. I had the same thing happen to my washer. Water seeped past the seal and the water started to rust out the inner bearing. You need to pull the washer apart to get to the bearings if you are handy. If not, the parts and labor are more than the price of a new machine.

Replacing the bearings needs well above average DIY skills to do, so unless you feel confident to tackle the job, can get hold of a tech manual, and can get hold of new bearings, it's time to call an engineer for a quote and then draw your own conclusions as to whether it's worth it.

Slow to spin and making a loud noise.


Control boards don't growl, the fry out and die. Sounds like a drive train problem to me. If it's a front load machine, the spindle/bearing assy. has gone to washer heaven. If it's a top load machine... could be the transmission, brake/clutch assy. or the tub bearings. In either case, if it's less than 5 years old, the drive system will be warrantied through the manufacturer. If you could provide a make and model number, I could narrow this down to a fine point.
