The main bearing may be worn out at the back of the drum allowing the drum to wobble.Reach inside the drum and lift upward. If you can move it up and down this is probably the problem.

Machine is making clanking and grinding noise during wash cycle drum does not appear to be turning. does not make this noise if ran without items in wash and drum turns with no items in the wash


You may have a problem with bearing. Place your hand inside the drum and see if you can move it up and down. If the drum can be moved up and down, you have a severe bearing problem that will require a technician to tear down the unit and replace the bearing and drum assembly. It's a very expensive job.
Good luck

At the end of the spin cycle, my Kenmore Washing Machine makes a grinding noise like an out of balance brake drum. What could be the problem


If your washer model number starts with 110. it's a whirlpool washer. Whirlpool use a spin tube with two notches in it. There is a block assembly that holds the inner basket down on to the spin tube. This can be accessed by removing the top of the agitator and take out the 7/16 screw. Lift the agitator to expose the top of the spin tube. The tube is stripped on top where the basket sits. When the washer stops spinning, the inner basket keeps moving. That is the noise you hear. Replace the spin tube and possibly the block.

Washer is loud, and won't spin or agitate


check the motor bushes,and also check for bearings in drum you can check this by lifting the inner drum up and down if you feel a knocking noise then this will be the bearings have worn.

When turning, loud grinding noise.


Can be a tensioner pulley with bad bearings or the rear drum bearing is shot. When the rear drum bearing goes bad, the drum drops slightly and starts rubbing and making all sorts of terrible noises. I would not run it like this as the pivot on the rear of the drum that rides in the bearing could be cutting into the support. Not a good thing.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

Washer make grinding noise


Hi, Unfortunately this sounds like the drum bearings have failed. Does the drum move around when you try to lift it up and down? Were there greasy spots on your white clothes lately? Any metallic debris in the removable filter? These all point to drum bearing failure.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please delay the rating and add a comment
with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
