Have you or did the repair man check the belt to make sure it was still good and nothing was stretched? Also the motor to make sure that it was not causing this problem? And everything is oiled properly?

Hoover 2300L 6.okg boss. Squeaking when agitating back& forth, not when spinning. Is this a bearing problem? & is it replacable. If so, from where in south australia? Or wherever.?




Washing machines don't usually run silently, but in most cases, a squeaking noise that occurs while the washer is agitating the clothing is not normal and signifies a problem. If the noise only happens when the washing is agitating, the problem is likely connected to the motor or your water pressure. Depending on the specific cause, you may feel comfortable fixing it yourself. Otherwise, call a professional.

The Agitator
  • Agitators are located in the center of the drum, or basket, of top-load washing machines. Front loading washing machines do not use agitators -- instead, gravity moves the clothes from the top of the drum to the bottom. Agitators usually consist of a tall cone fitted with arms at the base. The purpose of the agitator is to rotate the clothes and soapy water around the tub to clean the clothes. The agitator itself is not usually the cause of the squeaking noise. It is powered by the drive mechanism, which consists of a motor, clutch and gears.
Motor Problems
  • A repetitive squeaking noise during the agitation cycle may signify a problem with the motor. Specifically, the belt on the motor may be wearing out. Some motors use rubber couplers, which also wear out easily. The belt is necessary for the agitator to turn, but over time, it wears thin, just like the belts in your car's motor. An easy way to test for this problem -- if you're handy -- is to take the belt off the motor and then run it. If the squeaking noise stops, the problem is indeed your belt. Of course, this means your agitator won't move. Replacing the belt should fix the problem.
Water Pressure Issues
  • The tub, or drum, fills with water right before the agitator turns on, and water continues to circulate throughout the washing process. As the tub fills and water circulates, you may hear a squeaking or squealing noise if you have high water pressure. This sound is caused by the force of the water moving through the pipes. To adjust this, turn the knobs on the hot and cold valves on the pipes that go into your washing machine.
Considerations
  • New washing machines may squeak at first as the parts "warm up," according to the GE Appliances website. The noise should disappear after five complete washing cycles have run on the machine. Unbalanced loads, overly heavy loads and loose items in the drum may also cause noise when the agitator comes on, but these things usually do not produce a squeaking sound.

Kenmore top-loading washing machine squeaks


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check if there are any sucked small clothes, safety pin, lint or debris in the water pump. If the pump is fine then the squeaking sound may be due to gear dogs in the agitator or bad gear case. The washer will spin and agitate at the same time. If the washer is still under warranty then do not try to open, repair or replace any part to void the warranty.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

GE Washer Model WJRR4170E4WW squeaks while agitating


There are four suspension rods that the tub hangs on. When the washer is agitating the tub will rock back and forth and the rods will move back and froth as well. To fix this noise, lift up in each rod and put some lubricant in the cup that the rods fit into at the top of the washer.

Note that it is best if you use a lithium-based lubricant rather than silicone based lubricant.

Real bad squeaking noise in dryer


Yes check the brake. Just open the back panel and look under the machine. Check the brake latch and make sure that when the unit starts to spin that the brake backs itself off and also make sure that the bad is not worn down. If it is then replace it. A few screws and off it comes. To check the pulley and the belt there is really no wrong way to do it. First look at the belt and make sure that it is not cracked or really smooth. If that checks out ok then make sure that it is attached to the pulley fully and that the pulley is not bent

That sounds like a clutch problem - probably just worn and need replacement. Will definitely need to pull to find exact fault.

hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
