You may gave a broken pump. or a bad centrifugal switch. turn the washer on its side(unplug it first of cours) underneath the washer you will see a pump attached to the motor. remove the pump by realeasing the two long clips in there and see if a foriegn object is lodge in there. a problem with the centrifugal switch will require replacing the whole motor.This could also be a problem with the drive gears.

My Washer/Dryer combo will not spin properly when the cycle is on spin. It all just spins sslloowwllyy. There is a sorta bang sound when it tries to spin :-(


if it is a front loader it could be the bearings, or the bracket that holds the drum could be broken (have been known to corrode and fall apart). open the door and try to move the drum up and down by hand. if you get a clunking movement that's your problem - time for a new machine or expensive repair.

My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.


Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

My Kenmore stackable washer makes very load noises in the rinse and spin cycle but still works. Anyone have idea why it's making so much noise


Try spinning the drum by hand when empty, the faster the better. Does it sound noisy or is there a grinding sound? It should sound silent or whir as everything turns. If noisy then it may well be the drum bearings. If it clunks then it may be one of the arms that holds the drum in place has broken.

I have an LG washing machine Model WM1814CW. It makes a loud clanking sound in the spin cycle and the back of the drum has a thick black greasy substance on it & has leaked onto the floor. What could...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like it is your spin bearings. It would explain the grease and the noise also. The spin bearings have to do with the spinning of the washer. Usually, if there are loud noises associated with the washer, it is either the motor drive or the spin bearing.

My washing machine makes a cluck sound at the end


Hi,

Not knowing what model machine you have, I would hazard a guess and say it is your break solenoid or break arm or a variation on a break system.

After the spin cycle, the break solenoid or motor engages a break arm to stop and lock your spinning drum. The loud clunk is normal especially in Simpson and Hoover top load machines.

You can check this by putting the machine on a spin cycle. Once the machine gets up to speed, open the door. You will hear the clunck and then the drum stops abrublty.

If that is the case, it is normal and no need to worry about it. However, it you did not have the noise before, then best to get it checked out by a repairer.

Regards
Ash

Washer stopping abruptly at end of spin cycle.


Hi, it sounds like maybe some dust has gotten in the basket drive pads causing it to stick. Has it been happening long? Sometimes it will work its way out. Try turning the tub with your hand clockwise. You can also put a heavy load in the washer (wet) and let it get to a high spin. Then open the lid and see if it starts stopping slower.
If this doesn't clear its self up, you will need to change the basketdrive.
Please let me know if this has helpped.

Thanks
Vic

Clunking during spin


see if the shocks are not broken. if you spin the wash basket by hand and hear a grinding noise, then your bearing would most likely be bad

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.


I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken
