Re: loud noise

Hard to say for sure without more info. Sounds like something caught in pump though. Give us the brand and a model number.

Frigidaire front loading washer has loud spin cycle, Why?

That's a great question, Roth!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is making a loud noise during the spin cycle. This could be an issue with your bel, motor, or tub. In order to find the cause of your noise you may need to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend contacting a technician to come out. This will help prevent any future issues or personal injuries. -Matt

My machine is making a weird noise. Sort of like a baseball card in bicycle spokes.

I had the exact same problem with my machine. I just had it serviced last week. The problem was loose change that was inside of the pockets in the laundry got caught in the waterpump. The repair person had to get the change out of the waterpump and it runs just like new again.

I have a lg washer Model# wm0642h and yesterday my wife was washing clothes and during the last spin cycle it started making a loud clicking noise kind of like when you put a baseball card in the spokes of...

Sound like something has gone in between the drum and the outertank, usually a bra wire.. unless you can see it poking through a hole in the drum the only other access points for retrieval are through the sump hose at base , or the removal of heating element.. other than that it becomes a strip down job... but usually the 2 access points are sufficient..

Rattling noise during spin cycle

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

NAV5800a top loader washer

The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Drum won't spin freely

Are you sure that there is nothing sticking through the holes in the drum like a nail etc or a screw from trouser pockets, it could be that the heating element has come loose and is scraping against the drum or that the bearings have gone.

Loud noise

There's probably a penny or something in the drain pump. I've had this happen several times and it's easy to fix.

1. Make sure the washer is drained.
2. Remove the plastic panel at the bottom held on with the two plastic screws.
3. Drain the last bit of water into a pan by opening the cap on the black rubber tube.
3. Unscrew the big white cap on the left.
4. Look in there and you will probably find a penny or hairpin, etc.
5. Put everything back together.

I think your manual will probably describe this too.
