It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

SOURCE: loud screaming sound during spin cycle

The screaming noise is probably from a dry bearing in the motor, it will probably come and go and shouldnt cause to much problem, they are supposed to be self lubricating but sometime they run dry.

SOURCE: SPIN CYCLE -

You need to confirm the Model number of your machine. Is it a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? If so what are the first two digits of your serial number of the machine.

That info can be found here...see pic.

If it's one of the above machine model types supported in this forum you may have Clutch One-Way Roller clutches bearing seized and or Outer Tub Bearings seized.

Both issues cand be handled by a DIY'er with very basic mech. skill sets and some direction if you can deal with the down time........Rich

My washing machine is making a loud screaming noise..it's still washing my clothes but when it's on the spin cycle it's almost unbareable.


Hi,
As the washing machine is making a loud noise I think the first thing I would request you to do is lift up the washer from the front, remove the belt and check the pump by rotating the pump pulley manually. If does not move freely then replace the pump.
Let us know if you want any further clarification.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com
