SOURCE: MAYTAG Wahing machine model MAV6000AWQ

I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problem with LG WD-8023FB washing machine

Hello sir,

  1. If a washing machine is rumbling, and very **isy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  2. A**ther drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is **t always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
  3. Loud **ises when turning the drum by hand can also be caused if the drum itself splits, or the spider at the back of the drum has come away from the drum, is corroded or even broken. This would **rmally be a loud **ise on each revolution of the drum whereas the **ise when drum bearings have gone is constant all the time the drum is turning. Lifting the drum checking for excessive play can often reveal a broken or loose drum spider which sometimes only occurs at certain points round the drum (the spider has three arms and is bolted to the drum at three points)
  4. Coins or other obstructions trapped inside the tub under the drum can make horrendous **ises as they get tossed about on spin. They often don't make the **ise unless laundry is in though. Look out for obvious dints and creases in the drum itself as evidence of a coin or similar stuck inside although be aware that it only shows there's been an obstruction in at some point and the coin could have fallen into the sump hose or filter and **t actually be the cause of the **ise at this time
  5. Other causes of a **isy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause **ise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of **ise on spin as the coins get tossed around inside. Often, spinning the drum by hand will **t reproduce the **ise in the case of coins because the coins drop to the bottom of the tub and lay flat when the washing machine isn't spinning
  6. A light scraping or ratchity **ise when the drum is turned by hand is commonly a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum. They can often be removed from underneath with the sump hose taken off. It's always worth checking that the wire isn't poking through one of the holes in the drum which can be pulled back out from inside the door. It's rare, but I've retrieved 3 or 4 this way over the years.
  7. A high pitched squealing or harsh **ise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.
  8. A k**cking **ise can be a loose tub weight. This would **rmally be worse with heavy loads and would **t be present on spin with ** washing in. This is because the k**cking **ise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. A**ther symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine. Warning: These days most washing machines have plastic tubs and over tightening a tub weight bolt can easily shear the bracket resulting in a new tub being required. Try loctite. Often, once a tub weight has come loose the plastic tub is damaged anyway especially if it isn't caught early e**ugh
  9. Sometimes a badly worn drive belt can cause a surprising amount of **ise. I've even come across some where i was convinced the drum bearings were gone until I took off the belt and spun the drum by hand to find ** **ise.

SOURCE: GE Prodigy Washing machine making clunking noise

One common problem area is the clutch assembly. The clutch is built on top of the motor, the motor drives the clutch and the clutch assembly drives the rest of the washer. The clutch gets very noisy when parts inside are worn out. The shoes lining that drives the inner drum of the clutch wear off and you will get a metal on metal sound. Clutches often can be rebuilt, but sometimes they are too worn and replacing the whole clutch is the best repair. Please use this link here for clutch replace and repair info. The belt and pump may be the next items to check for noises. How to access the washer. Clutch repair help.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after

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

Why dosen't Beko WMB 61631s washing machine work?


sounds like a software problem.
Try unplugging for 2 hours, then replugging and starting the cycle.
The long unplug is to drain memory voltage.

Why is my Bosch 1200 classic spin light flashing and won't machine won't spin


They aren't very complicated machines. Unplug and remove the back. Look for trapped clothing, broken belt or something that seems out of place. If it all looks normal you could have a bad circuit board (but if that's the case the machine should throw an error code) Cheap on EBay and easy to replace. Mine was $45 and took less than 10 minutes.

We have a Bosch washing machine E-nr wet2820GB / 13 FD 8101 0017. Recently it has started making an unusual, very loud 'crunching' noise during the wash cycle, it then stops on 'main wash',...


There is a clutch that gets dry and sticks it has to be greased from time to time.
It sounds like the clutch cannot slide on the spline and is causing the issue at hand.

Started making loud "clicking" noise


Blocked pump, open flap bottom right, drain off excess water manually and remove pump filter. Make sure you get right down and have a look in at the impellor and give it a turn to make sure its free to rotate. You'll probably find a coin, button etc that is catching the pump impellor. When you start a cycle the pump engages for a few seconds and then the w/m takes in water, so if something is stopping the impellor rotating the w/m will not start.
Best of luck

My washer has started being loud when it spins out and is draing . I was wondering why. I wondered if something was getting ready to break.


Hello,

Welcome to Fixya gojigirl,

Have you checked the pump to insure nothing is in there causing the noise, or do you believe it is coming from the main wash basket ?

I would rule out anything being in the pump first ( you can gain access in the lower right hand corner in the front by removing the pump insert/filter, you may need to drop down the small door in the toe panel at the bottom ) before declaring the main bearings or motor brushes being worn which can sound pretty loud, but usually just in the spin cycle.

Let me know what you find out.

good luck

Spin cycle has stopped working...


If you have not already done so, then check the pump filter.
This should be behind a drop down flap at the bottom front right of washer.Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove.
If pump and filter o/k, then the next step is to check the brushes for wear in the motor, change if less than 3 or 4mm long.

Making a humming noise and not emptying water,tried different cycles and nothing working


Sounds like the pump is not working.
Check to see if there is a filter at the bottom front right of washer behind a drop down flap or cover.
If there is, then unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean,
Also see if you can see anything stuck in the filter housing leading into the pump.
Hope this helps.
