Hi vickie234 Quite often the noise can be attributed to something getting between the inner & outer drums. If I had a dollar or pound for every under bra wire I have removed from washers I would be a rich man. Occasionally the clips that hold the element in place between the drums can also cause this same noise. Turn the drum slowly with your hand & see if you can hear the wire or clip. The only solution to this is to remove the wire. Not easy if you haven't done this before. Reagrds

Duet washer making a loud noise on spin cycle, it squeaks on low spin and then when it gets up to high speed, it is really loud. What could this be?

In most cases it is something that is sticking between the drum and the housing. Check inside the boot by the door. If that is not helpful move the drum by hand and listen to see if you can locate the area of the noise.

Whirlpool duet washer will not drain or spin, keeps making a rumbling noise, what can I do?

Hello Randall;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I have a Whirlpool Duet clothes washer. They are nice units. The information following is based on my model number GHW9150PW0.

You do not have a drain problem. I am more concerned with the rumbling noise.

1.) On both the front and back end of your drum you have a spring loaded counterweight. It is possible you have a broken spring.
Part #: 8181762 Cost: $24.00
Part #: 8181645 Cost: $17.00

Your should also check out your drive belt. At a high speed it may be slipping.

The above will effect your independent motor control located inside the washer, located inside your unit.

LG WM3987HW Washer Spining very wild

I've just uploaded a service manual.

relevant info pasted below: --

Regulate a specific spin speed that generates excessive vibration and noise as follows:
1) Put an unbalance part (rubber) inside of the drum.
(this is a special weight that service people use. It clips into the drum. If you don't have it, throw in about 4 to 6lbs of damp laundry.)

2) Start the QC test mode (Refer to section 7-2).
7-2 says turn the washer off, then press 'spin speed' and 'soil level' at the exact same time. Then, while holding both buttons, press power to start "QC test mode"

3) Press Delay Wash button, then ' tst ' is displayed on lcd
4) Press the Spin Speed button repeatedly to select Extra High.
5) Press the Quick Cycle button, the spin speed is displayed.
6) Press the Start/Pause button.
7) Press the Beeper button repeatedly to set spin speed (600, 800, 1000, 1200 rpm) and check if there is vibration
and noise.
8) If there is no vibration and noise, increase the spin speed by pressing Beeper button.
9) If there is vibration and noise, rotate the Cycle selector knob clockwise to reduce the Spin Speed (reduce by 50
and 100 rpm). In case of 600 rpm, it can not reduce the spin speed.
10) If vibration and noise are reduced, press the Quick Cycle button to store (2 beep sounds).
* If you want to return to factory default spin speed setting, repeat above steps except step 9)

During the spin cycle it sounds like the drum is about to come out of the machine and there are little grey plastic pieces in the clothing.

Sound like the basket has broken away from the spinning support coming of the back of inner drum, Gray plastic is the front ring the inner tub is now rubbing on. This has been making noise for a while. Phil 1-800-559-1411 any help I can give you.

Drum appears to be loose and makes a lot of noise when on the spin cycle

With the washer empty, spin the wash tub by hand. The drum should be spin true without any noticeable wobbling and spin without much noise. If it wobbles or makes any kind of rubbing or banging noise as you turn it by hand. The problem is that the spider support arms are broken. It is an expensive repair job since the washer has to be completely torn apart and the wash drum needs to be replaced. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

Washer motor turns, drum does not

Please be gentle with me if this is obviously not the problem, but I have made the mistake of running top load washers with the door open (which the washer notices and does not turn the basket. I fixed my problem by loading the washer, adding the detergent while the washing machine was filling and then closing the door. My washer worked fine with the door closed.
Again, please be gentle with me as you rate my helpfulness. OK?
