If your machine is bouncing or more movement than usual your shocks will be bad,but you use your model # to order new shocks.

Washer drum makes grinding sound


If this is a front load washer, there are two shocks and a suspension band on top of the drum, most likely one of the shocks are broke or the bearings are going bad. pull off the front cover at the bottom and look at the shocks if they are not broken pull the top cover and inspect. You can run it like this and then you can see where the problem is. You can get your parts and help videos at www.repairclinic.com.

My neptune washer won't operate. The lights come on and won't shut off


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mountingis also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.
Now in this case the failure of the motor drive or the agitator shaft could have resulted in total failure of the spin cycle. Now remove the panel and check manually the movement fo the motor and the main drive, if the shaft is struck up or if the motor bearings/bushes are worn out. It is important to check the voltage on the motor as the absence of the voltage means that the controller has some fault - possible failure of the drive after a heavy load of the malfunction.

The drum on my Kenmore He4 is making a "knocking" noise on the spin cycle, we just had all 4 shocks replace so I know it is not that, any idea what is going on now?

My washer machine makes alot of noise when it get to rinse cycle


It is possible that the drum is rubbing about when it is in te high speed mode and so make the noise. It is always good to observe what the noise is all about as this can be visible from the bottom of the washer.

You need to check the movements with a manual turning of the motor and drum. This noise can be from the belts, the bearings, the suspension or as said earlier the rubbing of drum due to heavy load or poor damping.
If this machine has a gear box for high speed , check the motor and the gear box for low/dry lubrication.

Blows main fuse under load when going to spin


Sounds like it's scraping against your heater element.Remove back panel then remove heater element(two prongs with nut in centre)you will be able to see signs of damage if so that will have to be replaced. £20 - £30.00p. Your either overloading your machine or your bearings are have gone, to check bearings pull inner drum while holding outer drum if get movement and knocking they will also need replacing.

When drum spins it makes alot of noise.


Check the main bearing and the pulley to make sure that they are both working properly if the bearing is bad it will make the drum bounce all over, if the pulley is bent it will make kind of a grinding noise along with things jumping everywhere

Washing machine drum is very wobbly


* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.
