Hoover 2300L 6.okg boss. Squeaking when agitating back& forth, not when spinning. Is this a bearing problem? & is it replacable. If so, from where in south australia? Or wherever.?

Washing machines don't usually run silently, but in most cases, a squeaking noise that occurs while the washer is agitating the clothing is not normal and signifies a problem. If the noise only happens when the washing is agitating, the problem is likely connected to the motor or your water pressure. Depending on the specific cause, you may feel comfortable fixing it yourself. Otherwise, call a professional.

The Agitator
  • Agitators are located in the center of the drum, or basket, of top-load washing machines. Front loading washing machines do not use agitators -- instead, gravity moves the clothes from the top of the drum to the bottom. Agitators usually consist of a tall cone fitted with arms at the base. The purpose of the agitator is to rotate the clothes and soapy water around the tub to clean the clothes. The agitator itself is not usually the cause of the squeaking noise. It is powered by the drive mechanism, which consists of a motor, clutch and gears.
Motor Problems
  • A repetitive squeaking noise during the agitation cycle may signify a problem with the motor. Specifically, the belt on the motor may be wearing out. Some motors use rubber couplers, which also wear out easily. The belt is necessary for the agitator to turn, but over time, it wears thin, just like the belts in your car's motor. An easy way to test for this problem -- if you're handy -- is to take the belt off the motor and then run it. If the squeaking noise stops, the problem is indeed your belt. Of course, this means your agitator won't move. Replacing the belt should fix the problem.
Water Pressure Issues
  • The tub, or drum, fills with water right before the agitator turns on, and water continues to circulate throughout the washing process. As the tub fills and water circulates, you may hear a squeaking or squealing noise if you have high water pressure. This sound is caused by the force of the water moving through the pipes. To adjust this, turn the knobs on the hot and cold valves on the pipes that go into your washing machine.
  • New washing machines may squeak at first as the parts "warm up," according to the GE Appliances website. The noise should disappear after five complete washing cycles have run on the machine. Unbalanced loads, overly heavy loads and loose items in the drum may also cause noise when the agitator comes on, but these things usually do not produce a squeaking sound.

Quick pump troubleshoot

Start with the power and motor. When it's plugged in is there a noise or vibration? Smoke or burning electronic smell? If there is noise or vibration the pump motor is in working order. If it is still not pumping move to the next step.

Now for the impeller, gently turn it. Did it move? Is the turn rough or sticks? With pumps smaller than 1/8hp you can try carefully turning the impeller while powered on to get it spinning. Larger pumps this is not recommended.

Next check the hose fittings and the pumps seals. Are any fittings lose? Run water around the seams while the pump is running, carefully avoiding the motor and any electronics, if the pump starts to prime as you are running the water you have located the bad seal.

Dishwasher won t fill

I had a similar problem with a Kenmore; the problem turned out to be that the float was stuck. On the bottom of your dishwasher there should be something that looks vaguely like a plastic mushroom - that is the float. Just tap it gently and see if it goes down a bit. If it does, gently move it up and down a few times to make sure it's moving freely (make sure to leave it in the down position) and then try to launch a cycle. Good luck!

The washer makes a odd noise and tries to rotate the drum during the filling, wash and spin stages. The drum does not turn, the motor sounds like it is running, the pump runs, it fills with water, just no...

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.

As soon as the motor starts up after the dishwasher fills, the motor makes a loud grinding noise that turns into high pitch whining. Water begins leaking from above the pump.

That shows a leaking water seal. Water would run into the motor bearings which then rust and make noise. You probably need the motor / pump kit.

Motor and cutter do not rotate - strip cut model

Soak the clog with dishwashing detergent and a little bit of water overnight. This should dissolve the paper.

Filter Pump motor is On, but no Water Circulations.

You have probably pulled the center out of the impeller. Please shut this pump off immediately before you over heat and distort the housing and damage the motor.

You use a paper filter on this device? This has salt water in the tub? or you use salt water as a water treatment?

I think you had your spa running and you turned it off for some reason and immediately turned it back on. If there was ANY pressure in your system, that pressure was running the impeller backwards when you turned the motor back on and that is why the center is pulled out of it.

Of course there may be other reasons for this problem and you will never get anyone to admit to doing this ... but it was evidently done.

I frequently find this problem at work where I maintain three public bodies of water ... till I got rid of the 'pool attendant', that is!

Dishwasher not draining and making a noise

Ok, normally, when you hear abnormal noises and the draining has stopped, this will point to the pump/motor assembly. this assembly , basically, runs together in unison. the pump/motor are as one and if the motor is malfunctioning, the pump will not drain properly. this noise is coming from the pump housing. There are many parts that are located in this housing and one fragile part that can cause issues is the Impeller. this piece provides the pump action that moves the water during drainage. If the sleeve that connects to the Impeller becomes stripped, the motor drive bolt will simple spin freely, causing this noise and no drainage. The motors fine but, you will have to replace the pump assembly in order for this noise to stop and the normal draining cycle to return. just to be safe, check all the drainage hoses as well.

please rate and god bless:)
