Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin

My machine started to make a horrible grinding noise when trying to execute the spin cycle. 

Also, when my machine tries to empty it makes very loud sucking and gurgling noises. The machine started making this noise first, then started grinding on the spin cycle after that. I've read the solution to the problem of noises when the machine tries to empty water and it sounds like the hoses may be blocked by coins or something else. I'll give it a try.

It makes me wonder whether the two noise problems stem from the same problem - coins gumming up the works maybe. Can anyone tell me if there is anything in common here? Possibly getting some foreign object stuck in the machine that affects both draining and spinning. Could it be that coins were blocking the draining and then moved to another area that would cause the grinding noise when trying to spin? Thanks for any help!

    BC71. Thanks for the tip. Another solution suggested that I take off the panel at the lower front of the machine and then remove the 4 screws from the plate on the right side. On my machine there is a metal plate across the lower front of the machine and a hole on the right side. No panel with 4 screws. When you say to access the pump from the bottom, you mean not the bottom front but to lay the machine down on its back and go from there?


    Thanks for any more feedback. Think I'm almost there!

It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.

Grinding noise in spin cycle


It sounds like the drain pump needs replacing, its bearings have failed or there is something from the wash jammed in it. But before you buy a new one, get the machine checked by an expert in case lots of parts are damaged.

Water has been leaking out of the bottom of my washer, and it has been making a horrible grinding sound. It finally stopped spinning last night, though it makes noises and tries to run.


Hi just read your posting.Now when is the machine noisy?Is it when the machine pumps out the water or when the bowl spins.Sorry to ask you this but please be accurate when you reply to this question.The reason being is that if it is noisy when it pumps the water it could be your pump but if it is noisy when the bowl turns for the spin then the problem will be your bearings and seals.Select a spin cycle and push start,is it noisy as soon as you push the start button?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

While washing it makes a horrible "grinding?" noise and after draining the clothes are still wet and it will not spin. the horrible noise is on during all cycles. will not spin. HELP, please!!


Sound very much like something (coin etc) is stuck in the pump, have had a look online to see if I can find a diagram to check if there is a customer access filter for you to check. Unfortunately, I can't find one so if you have your owners manual see if there is any info. This will also be the answer to the spin problem as most w/m will not spin until all water has been expelled. Hope this helps.

It's more likely something caught in the pump or bad pump. Remove the belt under the machine and check the pump pulley for noise.
