SOURCE: The washer makes a odd

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. If the belt is worn out or is loose or damaged then it will not turn the drum but make noise. so this can be an issue in your case. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

Doesn't want to go onto spin cycle just makes funny noises


Possible that there is slippage when the program comes to the spin mode. Please check the drive and see if the belt is slipping or the drive is jammed. If not check the motor drive.

I have a samsung front loader washer model number we357a7w/xaa only 3 and a half years old that stopped draining water and making a funny noise. It wont even go on spin cycle. please advise?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If your washer doesn't drain or spin, you may read and learn what parts may cause this. First, you will want to check your water pump. You need to make sure it is working. Make sure you check the belt on the pump. Make sure it is not broken or loose. Also, make sure your pulley is not stuck in place. Sometimes, they will stick or barely turn at all. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. If the pump, pulley, and belt are working, make sure your motor is working. You should be able to hear it if it is. If it isn't, check your lid switch. The lid switch can cause the motor to not work. It may need adjusted. If not, go ahead and change it. A bad lid switch may cause the washer to not work at all. Now, if your pump is pumping and the washer still won't spin, you will want to check your belt and clutch. Once again, the belt may be broke or loose. Check to make sure your clutch is not worn also. This may be a case of a bad lid switch again as well. You could have a bad drive motor. This is what controls spinning, draining, and agitation. You could have a broken motor coupler. Over time, they will go bad and need replaced. It is possible that your transmission is slipping or damaged. And lastly, you could have a bad basket drive ir spin bearing. This is what allows the inner tub to move. If this is the case, you will probably hear loud sounds or loud banging. This noise is heard in the spin cycle.

Outside fan wants to start, but stops after 5 secs or so.


Turn off all power. Pull the cover off and lay it upside down so that you can reach the fan. Then turn the unit on and try spinning the fan blade with your hand while it trys to turn and makes the noise you observed. If it is seizing up or very difficult to turn by hand, the bearings are bad on your motor and the motor will need to be replaced. You might be able to lubricate the motor and buy a little bit of time but expect to have problems in the near future.
IF the motor does not seize up and starts spinning without resistance and runs for several minutes or so, you may have a failed capacitor.

Whirlpool noise


Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry
