Bobby pin stuck in washing machine - high pitch noise during spin

I know it's this problem because i paid 150 bucks to find out last time. the guy came and took off the front of the machine undid the tubing and pulled a couple bobby pins out. I'd like to try it myself but i can't figure out how to get the front of the machine off. i can open the top but the front seems to be screwed in several places and i don't even know how to get to some of the screws. is there an easier way. my machine is a maytag atlantis.

I just had this exact issue and was able to solve it myself. I thought I was in for a $300-400 fix. It sounded like the bearings or transmission was going out it was so loud.

My first clue was from the bobby pins **** in the stainless wash tub. The first thing I would do is put a 2x4 underneath the front to prop it up and pull the belt off. Spin the three wheels down there and see if they're all smooth. In my case the water pump did not spin smooth, something was wrong.

To get to the water pump, you need to take a putty knife to push the clips in the top, one on either side and the whole top will prop open. Next there are two bolts you need to unscrew and the front will slide out. The water pump will be on the front right. You need to take a large plyers or vice grips and squeeze the clamps to pull the two hoses off (keep a towel handy because there's probably water in them yet too). Pull the hoses off and now you should be able to have access to the 3 x 10mm bolts the hold on the water pump. Pull the pump out and inspect that there isn't any thing obstructing the impeller blades. In my case two bobby pins were wedged in there making the racket. I was able to take a real long needle nose plyers and pull them out.

Putting it all back together is reverse of what is above.

Whew! thought I was going to be out some bucks for the repair tech coming out! Hopefully someone else finds this usefull!

Once you open the top, push the tub back and there are two small screws on top. The front will then fold out and lift off.

It drains very slowly and it makes a high pitch sound when it does spin...sometimes you hear something tapping or slapping, likesomething is stuck.


To me it sounds like you have something stuck in your pump. I would check that first. I had the high pitched sound during the spin cycle on my machine and it turned out to be the drum bearings. That part used to be covered by a 10 year warranty but not anymore. My machine was less than ten years old and it cost me around 300.00 to fix it. I have paid for my machine 3 times over in repairs. My next washer will NOT be HE and probably an old school Speed Queen

LG front leader washing machine;high pitch vibration during spin, the house is vibrating with it, we can feel it at the other end of the house, any fix?


You can buy rubber pads at the home center that damper the vibrations.
The high pitch noise could be an object stuck between tubs.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

My bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin


Hi
There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

Kenmore washer Model #16852 make high pitch sound while spinning.


Is the high pitched sound that you hear during the spin cycle or just all the time during the wash? If it's during the spin cycle it's probably your transmission and the only way to fix it is to replace the transmission. It's only going to get worse with time and soon enough it will just seize up on you and nothing will work. A transmission for a Kenmore runs anywhere between 150 to 250 dollars. 150 if you can find a refurbished one. You can find them at any appliance repair shop. Kenmore transmissions are fairly common as it's a big name. I hope this helps you and if you have any other questions or need help with installing it let me know. I can give you an easy step by step walk through on how to install it. It doesn't take too long. Good luck to you.

The washing unit makes a high pitched loud noise


Check to see if you have a bra underwire or nail stuck in the spin tub. Look around inside the tub looking for something stuck in one of the holes. Dont use the machine until you find the problem or you cut the tub in half with like a nail or screw and then the machine has to be rebuilt $$$$

You may have other problems, However start here. Let me know if you have other questions
