Loud noise when spinning

I have a Sears Kenmore Washing machine that made a loud noise during the spin cycle but it continued working in the washing cycle, when it would get at the highest spin level, that noise would stop. Now the washer is not working at all. When you try now to start it in any mode but the spin cycle, it makes this humming sound. In the spin cycle it makes no noise at all. What's my next move?

    My washer is a whirlpool, but i'm having simular problems. When it's finished with the spin cycle and starts slowing down there is a very loud noise like the load is unbalenced. Almost like the basket and the fabric dispencer are not conected anymore. The basket still spins while the dispecer stays in place The washer works fine besides that it run through all cycles and there is no burning smell. I'm affraid to keep washing close though. I think it might tare it up to keep using it.

    I also have a Kenmore 80 series top loading washer that makes a terrible noise while on the spin cycle. After it's finished spinning, it comes to a very sudden and abrupt stop. It is not even 4 years old. Worth repairing or consider buying new?

I agree with Gittos on the bearing assessment. This considered part of the drive system. If it's less than 5 years old, your next move is to contact Sears and claim a warranty repair on the tranny (it has a 5 year warranty on it). If it's more than 5? Well, honestly it wouldn't be worth the repair. You'd have spent more money on all the parts required than what the unit is worth (worth= what it would sell for in working condition on the market). Hope it's less than 5!

A washer making a loud noise during spin cycle can also be caused by a faulty drive pulley. The pulley is what the belt (if applicable to yourwasher) rides on to spin your washers tub. The pulley can be made of plastic or metal. It could be simply worn out or just loose.27 Jul 2015

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.

The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired

Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

My Kenmore 80 series washer just started making a loud Aihaiha electrical or motor type noise. This happened during a heavy load cycle. Noise was very loud. When I click to regular, delicate or hand wash....

The following are the reasons for the drum not spinning :-
* Test the lid switch
* Test the timer control
* Test the centrifugal switch
* Test the water level switch
* Inspect the motor coupler
* Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
* Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
* Test the motor
* Inspect the pulley
* Test the transmission

In the case of loud noises in the machine, the drum bearings might have been damaged and might need a replacement. Also do check the leveling of the machine. Good luck.

Yes, bearing, most definitely. It is a cheap part but difficult to replace.
