During spin cycle drum makes loud noise. Sounds like bearings are going out. Can they be lubricated? Or replaced


Depends on what sort of machine it is. (Front or top load)Bearings can be replaced but this will always entail replacement of all the tub seals and in the case of front loaders, almost always , it will need a new drum shaft. The costs to fix can be expensive. To confirm bearing failure, you can see if the tub moves and clunks on the main shaft and the noise will increase as the tub speed increases. Drum bearings usually fail when the tub seal fails or is worn out, allowing water to get into the bearing and wash all the grease out. Brown , black greasy stains under your machine and on the floor is usually a telltale sign as well.

My kenmore 417 wahser making too much noise, it looks like the inner tub hitting the outer plastic housing. How can I fix it?


Have you tried moving the clothes around in the drum to balance the drum BEFORE you was them? If that works, you have solved the problem! Most people forget that when cloth gets wet it gets heavy so leaving the clothes unevenly placed in the drum dry will make a real problem when they get wet!

Bosch Maxx 2000 leaves brown sludge on washing. Has it died?


Is the rubber seal around the drum perished or has it not been cleaned for while? The seal should be wiped out after every use, you may find it full of gunk if you run a cloth around inside the seal.

Washing machine works but occasionally makes noise occasionally at end of cycle, when spinning etc. I suspect a missing sock may have found it's way through the gap and is in the drum housing, out...


Clothing cannot get into the drum housing. Noises which occur during the spin cycle suggest that the drum is being thrown of balance during the spin cycle. A possible cause of this is that the bracket which holds the drum to the spindle is partially broken. This bracket consists of 3 or 4 arms and eventually one or more arms will crack and break (this is a result of the interaction between the steel drum, aluminium bracket and electricty, which weakens aluminium over a period of time). If the machine is not examined and repaired, then the drum noise will get worse and the drum will start to knock & rub against other parts, especially the water heating element and this will result in a more costly repair.

Small brown particles are found in filter and also what appeaars to be small grease stains on clothing what could be the problem?


The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

if it's appearing on whites mainly (hot cycle)...
This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.
