Question about Haier RWT360BW 3.0 Cu. Ft. Capacity Top-Load Washer 6 Wash Cycles 5
The unit is only one year old, and the washer is making weird sounds while on the wash cycle. The sounds is like a grinding sound, also before the grinding sound happens there is a sound like it is caught on something and cant spin. But the sound is not there on the rinse cycle, yet. Any ideas what that might be?
Possibly a foreign item like small change or a piece of metal from an article of clothing, pocket?

Did you install the bottom plate yourself? They are tricky and the instructions are a bit unclear - you want the bump side out so that bump goes towards the floor. If you install it with the bump going up toward the dryer, it gets all buggered up. Hope that helps!

Aha! Mine was doing the same thing and I also noticed that there was some excess water in bottom of the tub - not the tub that the clothes go in but the one that that tub is sitting in. Does that make sense? Anyway, I cut the zip tie that holds the drainage hose, brought the hose as close to the house as possible and siphoned the excess water out of the tub. After this I tried a small test load and it worked no problem. I think the fact that there was this excess water left in the machine made the load too heavy to start the spin cycle.
Hope this helps.

There can be two possibilities,one if it has a belt, it is either stretched or slipping or if it doesnt have a belt then there is a clutch like device between the motor and the basket, which is either broke or cracked.
Or follow this easy steps...
Unplug the washer and turn off the water faucets.
Disconnect the water hoses and the drain hose and pull the washer away from the wall, leaving yourself enough room to work behind the appliance.
Lay an old towel down to kneel on and soak up any water that leaks from the hoses.
Remove the rear access panel.
Locate the motor. The rubber drive belt goes around a pulley wheel attached to the motor.
Press on the belt. If it gives more than ¾ inch or so, it needs to be tightened.
Loosen the mounting nut for the motor and push the entire motor to increase the tension on the belt.
Hold the motor in place and tighten the mounting nut.
Make sure you don't tighten the belt too much or it will break. You should be able to press on it and feel it give just slightly.
Replace the drive belt if it shows signs of wear.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I guess you're right. The belt seems to be too loose and shows signs of wearing. Already ordered new one. Thanks again!"
