Gfc520f - new noise, sounds wrong

Nine-year old unit. No prior problems. Started making new loud sound, didn't sound normal or good. Still gets power and spins. Unplugged unit. No foreign objects detected. Turntable spins freely. Noticed that one of the two rivets in the turntable (that hold the two shredding blades) is loose. The other is tight and firm. Am wondering if the new noise is caused by the rivet shaking loose and, if so, is this something worth fixing or, given the unit's age, if it just makes sense to buy a new one. Thank you!

If the turntable tray is positioned and seated properly, it is probably a failing turntable motor.

If this is a heat pump system it is possible that your fan blade is hitting ice on your condenser coil.

SOURCE: GE SidexSide PSS26SGPASS Makes Humming Noise

GE refrigs have a variable speed evaporator fan motor that is controlled by a computer board on the back of the refrig. now the noise you are hearing is most likely the fan motor ramping up and down in speed (some of my customers say it sounds like a ghost). if its a continuous ramping up and down then the speed cotroller on the board is bad and must be replaced. if its just an occasional sound then thats normal and nothing to worry over.

Btw the reason the noise stops when the door opens is because the fan shuts off when you open the door.

Many thanks to e3enigma above! I removed the synch motor under the turntable; all other microwave functions work fine and the grinding noise is gone, hooray! A trip to the appliance parts store tomorrow for a replacement synchronous motor and all should be well. Thanks again!

SOURCE: HELLO, WSL100D0WW IS MAKING NOISE ON DRAIN/SPIN CYCLE.

Or, you have coins in your pump casing. Look on the back of the washer, and unscrew the circular port in the bottom right corner. (Keep an 8x13 baking pan underneath, water will escape once you open the chamber). Remove and change/objects from the chamber and replace the port. You should be good to go. This is actually very common for this model washer.

Makes a really loud buzzing noise during operation


Unit uses a Magnetron and likely a power board called an inverter to run it. Someone would have to open the unit in a way where they might pinpoint where the sound is coming from and then take action--does not of course sound normal or good to me.

If the belts are old they will allow the motor too much outward room, so that the motor shaft can rub against the bottom of the machine. Also make sure the motor rollers are not cracked, which they have a tendency to do.

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Vibration noise on optima Projectro/DVD unit


Hi mstadisasta

This is a faulty colourwheel that will have to be replaced as a colourwheel cannot be repaired.

It is quite easy to replace and I would suggest you to do it yourself if this unit is no longer under warranty.
All you'll have to do is get your hands on the new colourwheel from your local or nearest retailer.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
