Question about Frigidaire GLWS1233A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Roper Washer About a week ago, my 2 year old Roper Washer began making a screeching sound during the whole wash cycle. It sounds similar to when a fan belt on a vehicle needs to be replaced, but not quite as loud. It does not do it during any other cycle, and fills up as normal. The only difference is the sound.

Humming or buzzing during wash and spin cycles.

it's the motor that makes the humming may have difficulty in starting..when starting like this the motor draws more current and this may cause the windings to burn out..try reducing the load..if the sound disappears then indeed the capacity of the motor is deteriorating...take out motor and clean bushing and lubricate.. also realign belt ..

A screeching sound during agitation cycle only.

sounds like a bad clutch. check the transmission out for ware and inspect the clutch as well. make sure the brake is not dragging as well.

Thumping/knocking/rattles during wash agitation cycle

Mine is doing the same thing. I opened it up to see what was happening and it was the drive belt tension arm bumping around. Soon, the belt started slipping during the spin cycle. Now it won't spin and the belt starts to smolder from the friction of the drive motor. If you haven't checked your belt, that's a good place to start.

Extremely Load spin cycle

Mine was doing this and my husband tightened the huge bolt on the back of the drum. This is where the belt attaches. Evidently this bolt when loose can cause that outrageous sound.
