SOURCE: washer won't agitate after filling, grinding noise

this could be the coupling for the motor/transmission.

follows are instructions for removing the cabinet:

  • Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw from each side of the console.
  • Pull the console forward and up to remove the tabs on the bottom of the end caps, out of the holes in the top.
  • Lift the console up and lay it on its back.
  • Unplug the harness connectorfor the lid switch.
  • Insert a flat screwdriver into the front edge of the clip (located on both sides), and pry back. Remove both clips from the holes in the cabinet and slide down the other end of the clips and out the slot in the rear panel.
  • Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening. Be sure when tilting the cabinet that the back edge clears the vacuum break.
  • Tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling on the lid and opening of the cabinet. This releases the back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the back of the base.
  • Carefully pull the cabinet away from the base of the washer and set it aside.
    Now you have access to most of the parts.
Now on the front of the base, you will see the pump. This is held on with two clips, Pop these off and pull the pump straight off the motor. The motor has two clips on it as well, (remove any screws if they are there, some have them, some don't) and pull the clips away. The motor will want to fall. Keep a firm steady hand under it to prevent damage to floor or motor.

Look on the back of the motor and see if you see a little rubber disk with 6 holes. There is a three pronged connection on the motor as well as the transmission. If this coupler is not broken, you may have a bad transmission. To check for a bad transmission, take something that you can place over one of the prongs on the connection, and spin that first clockwise and note what the agitator does. Now spin it counterclockwise and see if the basket inside the tub starts to spin. If nothing happens either way, you probably have a bad transmission. If you get action from the transmission, then you just need the coupler, which you can get one at a local appliance parts store. Replace the broken parts and replace motor/pump assy.

Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: whirlpool top load washer makes noise on filling

Its mainly caused by back pressure when the inlet valve suddenly shuts off the water to the machine. The pressure causes your plumbing pipe work to shake inside the walls.

You can turn down the pressure by closing your water tap and only having it slightly open. Or you can get pressure limiters which join on the hose.

Samsung front load washer, jerks and makes noise when it first starts spinningthen it smooths out, and works fine.

on many machines that is normal, the shaking continues until the load is distributed relative evenly around the spinning drum. It is also possible it is the main bearing but I am not sure. The noise I am talking about would have been there since new. These links may help. Washer has noise during spin cycle Whirlpool Maytag Sears GHW9100LW1 Washer is Making Loud Noise

Samsung dishwasher makes a loud buzzing sound when the water is filling. It pulses a couple times to start then is constant. It pulses again right before the wash cycle. Comes from the bottom left.

This is common. The noise is coming from the water pump. If it bothers you, you can try UNPLUGGING the washer or turn off the Circuit breaker first. Then you can remove the bottom kickplate on the front of the washer and clean around the pump. If there is a water filter scree, clean it out. Make sure there is nothing rubbing against the pump which could cause a buzz. Tighten all fittings and screws to eliminate vibration noise.

Eileen, If the screeching is only happening on the fill and not during agitation or spin, I think we are safe to rule out the belt, pulley and bearing. Remove the fill hoses from the back of the washer and check to see if you have sand or gunk caught in the screens of the valve itself. If they are clear sounds like the water passing through the valve is making the noise. Another thing to check is the water pressure in the house. It should be around 55 psi., 75 psi max. I have seen it as high as 120psi with a bad regulator. This will cause noise and all kinds of problems. The part number for the fill valve is 131389300, according to the model back.
