Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My whirlpool top load direct-drive clothes washing machine makes a loud repeated sound while spinning, almost a banging but maybe a loud rubbing type sound. I've looked online for clues and ruled out some things. I've taken the cover off and watched it spin, etc. It spins nearly perfectly and the little wobble it does have doesn't coincide with the rubbing sound. I took the seal(?) off the tub on the top and looked down and can't see anything in between the inner/outer tub. It makes no noise when you spin the tub manually, but it does feel stiffer at one point over another.

Sometimes something works it's way into the pump assembly, this will make a clicking or scraping noise while spinning . When the motor drive coupler starts to wear down, the washer may also become noisy while spinning.  Loose tub nut and drive block will be noisy in the spin only. See how to take apart info. as the noise is from motor drive or the motor itself is faulty or faulty/rusty bearing making the noise. for all the problems just click the link directly  http://www.applianceaid.com/direct.html

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.


That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

On the spin cycle, it makes a banging noice, rythmic, about 2 per second....only on the spin cycle... can you help???


The spin cycle is used to rid the water by centrifugal force. As the tub spins, the water iis forced out of the clothes. The banging noise comes from the weight of clothes being on one side making the load unbalanced. The machine will absorb some minor unbalancing. If it gets real loud & the machine starts dancing, shut the machine off by raising the lid, when tub stops, rearrange clothes.

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.

Thanks

GE Profile - Loud knocking on spin cycle


Just random input, I apologize if this is of no help to you. I've only experienced this with my washer when clothes somehow get bunched up on one side of it.  The best I can tell you at the moment is to make sure there is relatively equal distribution of clothes around the "washer bucket thingy" if you hear the bang bang bang again.

Loud knocking sound


You have a bad drive block. This block is located under the inner tub. A special spanner wrench is required to remove the tub. You really need to call a service tech for this repair.
