Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Under counter dishwasher door "squeaks".

Would like to eliminate loud squeaking noise associated with the hinges of my dishwasher. Have tried forced air cleaning of hinges and application of "Houdini" with little success. Perhaps I have to be able to remove the door in order to clean the hinges properly before applying the right lubricant (whatever is recommended). I'm baffled at this stage.

The door hinges will have to be replaced. They have been updated to prevent this. Read about it here and good luck.
btw I have used Vaseline applied to the cables to eliminate this issue.

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.

When my washer was on the spin cycle it was making a very loud high squeaking/buzzing noise, could this be the belt and how do i fix the problem? Thanks Crystil


The belt would probably squeak in the agitate direction also. I suspect a tub or clutch bearing is going out. If you find signs under the washer that it's been leaking, the tub bearing needs to be changed. It's a major disassembly job. The clutch bearing may be easier.

MAV-3 top load washer makes loud squeaky noise during the wash cycle.


Is it a constant squeak or does it go squeak-squeak - squeak as it agitates? It is a squeak that is intermittant then usually your brake is losing its hold. You will need a technician to do this job. It requires special tools that they should have. I repeat a technician should do this job. You can seriously hurt yourself attempting this repair. Also see if the inner tup is turning as it agitates, if it is then it i definately the brake. But one more time do not try this repair it is a dangerous repair that should be left to technicians. There is a spring that is under heavy compression that requires a tool to release it.

Squeaking washing Machine during spin cycle


Hi
Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
OR
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.

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.

Squeaking Top Load GE Washer


I bought a new GE Washer GTWN5050MWS yesterday. From the first load it squeaked each time the tub moved back and forth (no agitator in the infusion type) It is a quick squeak and kind of resembles a cat getting it's tail under a moving rocking chair. I checked the entire owners manual and it describes several noises and not one of them describes what my new washer is doing. It does not make this sound except for when it is in the wash cycle. Spinning is quiet, and during the agitation of the rinse cycle it is a much more subdued squeak. But during the wash cycle it is not acceptable.

I called GE this morning and they told me it was normal operation for all infuser types of their washer to make this noise. Tomorrow I will be taking it back for a full refund.

We purchased this machine because our 2-year old front loading GE washer broke down (discharge pump I think) and to get it fixed usually takes a couple of weeks. We thought it might be better to have a 2nd washing machine instead of paying the laundry mat. It took a month to get the last one declared unfixable in 2008. Maybe I was wrong. But this is very bad luck to have a brand new washing machine squeak so loud out of the box.
