Washer won't spin at high speed....makes loud clunking noises

My drum now wobbles and the washer makes huge noises when it is washing. I bought it in 2004 because of the stacking feature to save space.

You probably have a broken shock on your washer. The front loaders have two shocks on them to stabilize the drum when it spins. Over loading the machine will cause these to break. Luckily they aren't too much to replace, only around 30 dollars each. They are quite a pain though to change out. When you remove the back panel of the washer you will see the shocks. Most likely you have one broke, maybe both though. Don't use it though until you get them changed out. It will just do more damage to the washer. If you have any other questions let me know and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help you.

My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.


Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

I have an LG washing machine Model WM1814CW. It makes a loud clanking sound in the spin cycle and the back of the drum has a thick black greasy substance on it & has leaked onto the floor. What could...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like it is your spin bearings. It would explain the grease and the noise also. The spin bearings have to do with the spinning of the washer. Usually, if there are loud noises associated with the washer, it is either the motor drive or the spin bearing.

My Kenmore Elite 3T washer has a loud whistling noise in the spin cycle. ??? Thanks!


Hi.

When that happens it is often because the drum bearing is starting to go. The first symptom is a loud high pitched noise during the spin part of the cycle. As problem gets worsening you will notice that the drum will be a bit wobbly if you spin it by hand.

Here parts and diagrams.

Regards.

Ginko.

Your power supply has failed, need part # 134409904, check ebay, about $70

this board is in a white plastic box with wires running to the motor, access from the back of the machine, maybe say magnetek on it 4246-99-1

Clunking during spin


see if the shocks are not broken. if you spin the wash basket by hand and hear a grinding noise, then your bearing would most likely be bad
