Some pumps make a strange noise as the water available to them is decreased as the clothes dry out, usually in the last few minutes of the cycle

A ge top load washer first began by making a buzzing noise instead of spinning. Now it doesn't spin as fast as before or just wont spin. Jeans wrapped around the agitator shouldn't damage the spin?


the agitator spins with the tub so clothes wrapped around the agitator will have no effect on the spin other than a balance problem
The hum and failure to start spinning may be attributed to a failed (failing ) start run capacitor or program board not moving on properly
As the start /run capacitor is for the motor and if it start the wash cycle ok but after that cycle ( around 30-40 minutes) it may be too hot to restart the motor for the spin
I suggest that a technician be called in to get a proper diagnosis and a quote

Washer wont spin or agitate and when set to drain and spin immediately starts making a noise and doing nothing with lid closed or open. what could it be?


Sounds like a load out of balance. Try shifting the clothes then press the spin cycle. Sometimes unplugging the washer for a minute or two resets the timer. Are you over-loading with heavy items?

Why does my washing machine make a load noise on the last 6 minutes of the spin cycle..especially when I have bed linens in.


It is not unusual for a machine to make a lot of noise and jump about when washing sheets as they can sit out of ballance in the drum. That is why the drum turns to and fro and short spins trying to balance the wash. If how ever the noise is rumbling like a big lorry going by, then I'm afraid it sounds like your drum bearings have gone. Replace bearings by an engineer or replace machine either is expensive.

Drum knock when spin cycle


Hello.
Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator.
1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded.
2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle.
3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes.
4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle.
Thanks.

It won't spin or do anything, it will only fill, last night it started banging during the spin cycle now it doesn't make any noise at all


I would need a little more infor. - but when your machine bangs on the spin cycle, it usually means your load is unbalanced. So lift open your machine and balance out your clothes. This should clear this up. You see this problem more with heavier loads (eg. towels, jeans, heavy garments, etc.). I try and balance out my laundry as I put it in the machine. It helps a bit, but even so, I still at times have to go balance it out manually. I hope this helps, but if not - then there's some other question's I would ask, but that's where I mentioned needing more info. at the beginning. Good Luck!
