On a manual chair, this can be several things.
- Client sitting off-center
- Warped frames
- Bent wheels or mounts
- Many makes of chairs allow the front wheels to be angle adjusted- make sure they are adjusted so the barrel of the stem is exactly perpendicular to the ground. Sometimes they get loose or bumped.
Possible that the grinding noise comes from the drum, irregular movement or broken paddles. You can try and attempt only if equipped with a fundamental understanding of the working . I shall give you some tips to this click 1..: Washing Machine
Hi, Thanks for writing to Fixya.com. This is sounds like the little gear checks under the agitating cap , take a screw driver and pop the cap on the top of the agitator, and look at the 3 little plastic, catches, there is a gear there where it goes back and forth , and when it turns, these little catches, connect, and make the agitator spin. If it has a belt system then please make a note of the belt. Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.
On the transmission there are two shift arms. One shift arm controls the agitator and the other shifts to spin the cloths. If the washer has been making a "clicking" sound when it trys to spin, the solenoid that shifts the spin shift arm is not catching and the drum will not spin. The other possibility is the spin clutch is slipping and make a "grinding/ratcheting" sound. Neither, unfortunately are inexpensive to fix.
If you can describe the sound and when it occurs, I might be able to get closer.
Let me know.
Hi,does the top part of the agitator move freely when you move it by hand?Or does it catch,if it does not catch the the cogs other wise known as dog ears are worn out.Do not believe the little cogs that catch inside the top part of the agitator can be replaced.You may have to replace the whole agitator unit on some models they are around 40.00.
Sounds as though your son damaged the transmission. If I were you I would take it out of his allowance...just kidding. A cheap thing that it could be that you may want to check though is your agitator dogs. Inside the agitator at the top are agitator dogs that have little teeth on them to catch the agitator and make it spin and agitate. Pop off the top where the fabric softener goes in and check them and see if they are catching. If not, if they look damaged and the teeth look worn then easy 5 dollar fix. Buy some new ones and replace them. If they look good though then your son damaged the transmission by overloading it and that is going to cost you between 150 and 250 dollars depending on if you get a refurbished one or not. If it's only 18 months old though you may still have a warranty on it and in that case take it back and don't say anything about the duvet. Just say one day it stopped working. You may be able to at least get it fixed for cheaper or free in that case. Again, just don't say what happened, as far as you know, it was working and then one day it just stopped. Hope this helps you and if you have anymore questions let me know. I will get a notification if you post something else to this. Good luck.
