Agitator Noise of Roper RTW4305VQ

Our BRAND NEW Roper RTW4305VQ clothes washer produces a loud "clicking" sound synonymous with the movement of the agitator. Is this normal for a brand new washer? The washer does a great job of cleaning clothes, and it fills and drains properly and does a great job of adequately spinning the clothes prior to drying, but the agitator clicking noise just doesn't seem to be normal. Thanks, in advance, for any help.

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.

Amana washing machine makes loud noice when trying to spin


sounds like you are dealing with the same problem as me .
take off the front panel (after unplugging power) take a flash lite and look at the large pulley at the back just below the pulley is the helix check to see if they are worn .

Hotpoint VBSR2080WOWW washing machine vibrates with loud noise


hi,
this is a generic problem with top-loading washing machines. when the distribution of load is not uniform, it gives sound when spinning. if it produces noise even after equal distribution of clothes, the problem lies in the suspension. this is not a major fault, and can be put up with, rather than spending dollars on fixing it. this will in no way cause any special wear and tear for the machine.
cheers

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

NAV5800a top loader washer


The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.
