Washed ok but when put on drying mode it made a loud grating noise


The drying fan is most likely clogged.
Take of the topp, then you will se the drying fan. Along with the heating system. There are several screws you have to undo on the heating canal. Then you should be able to clean the whole thing.
Sometimes the fan is broken, and need replacing.

This is not recomended if you dont know what you are doing!
Do a mistake with the overheating guards, heater position, wireing ect, and you could set the machine on fire the next time you use the dryer

Have you check the pump, all front load washer drain before filling. If you have coins or foreign object inside pump the can be the cause of scraping noise. I would also check the tub for nails or object that can poke through and tub on the outer tub during rotation. Most of the time its a foreign object in the pump issue. Good luck..

Macine stops on drying programme and F13 is displayed. What is this?


High temperature Rise In Drying cycle due to Reduced air flow through dryer heater assembly.
Check operation of fan motor and dryer filter for blockage...fluff/fibres is the main suspect i think as fibres attatch itself to the fan blade and slows the revolutions or create an obstruction in the silver dryer chamber on top of the tub beneath the lid... Good luck..

Dryer is not drying fast enough


The most common cause of slow drying is poor venting. Make sure the lint screen is cleaned after each load and that the vent pipe from the back is clear. (If you're using the white plastic vent tubing, get rid of it and replace it with rigid duct or corrugated flexible duct. It's less likely to clog with lint, and the the plastic stuff is a fire hazard.)

Check the airflow out of the dryer with the vent pipe disconnected - there should be a good, strong flow. If it's weak, the fan blade inside may be slipping on the motor shaft. If you've noticed any odd rumbling noise while drying clothes, that might be the cause. This will increase drying time, and may cause the machine to shut down the heat as well.

If this is an electric dryer, there may be trouble with the heating element. The temperature selector switch may have problems so that the dryer doesn't reach the heat you think it's set for (both gas and electric dryers).

Check the venting first, though. Hope this gets you going again, and thanks for using Fixya!

Loud vibration sound coming from rear bottom near motor? sounds like my porter cable compressor running.


HI. Just so you know, Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.


The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.


This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

Loud clanking noise when washer is coming to a stop


Noise can come from these areas:
The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.

Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.

  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.

  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

Dryer not heating


Hi, Can you get access to the top of the machine? If so take off the top make sure it is unplugged first,, Then at the rear there should be a fan with a belt drive on it? this should be free to turn? If not then this could be the problem. It could also be the plastic vent assembly that is located beneath the fan housing as they get blocked up with fluff this will need to cleaned out. You will need to take the back off for this exercise.
Good luck.................
