    It only make the noise on the wasah cycle.

    I think it maybe a pump issue.

    Are there more than one pump on this machine.

    The moise is a sort of grinding crunchy noise

    This sounds like a coin or similar object being thrown around by the pump.

    Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at front.

    Check this for the offending item.

    Thankyou for using Fixya.

Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

This noise is more likely caused by the iiner constant velocity joint. When turning the axle makes a franction of an angle in which no perpendicular to the ground. You'll gonna need to have it check as there is a possiblity that the wheel drum or axle assembly might come off when driving in high speed to avoid accident.

Remove the belt, and spin drum by hand from inside, there should be little or no noise, if there is then it is possible the drum bearings are failing.

My washing machine makes a loud banging noise wen it reaches the spin cycle only happens wen it is a full load not a half load


Form the front of washer, spin drum by hand, and if it fees rough, or is rumbling, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, then could be worn shockers, or the washer is not properly levelled, or concrete balance weight, I'm afraid it is a process of elmination.
Hope this helps.

Drum is very noisy even when spun by hand


The drum may be off balance because a support wheel or bearing is not operating correctly. A drum support wheel bearing could need lubrication or be replaced. Also some drum support wheels have a rubber coating that wears off causing misalignment and noise. Possibly drum gasket (sometimes felt material) where drum meets rear panel is worn allowing metal-to-metal contact--should be replaced.
