SOURCE: Washer is making a terrible sound, I think it is a

is the nois a grinding, whirring noise? I think the motor coupling has gone bad. Not an extremely hard repair and a repair man should only charge around $25.00 for the part and his service call. You can do this yourself if your mechanically inclined. the coupling is under the drum and you have to take the front cover off to get to it.

SOURCE: what is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor

Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

I hear a sound like something rubbing in the motor, does having low transmission fluid the result?


Power steering pumps that are low on fluid more often make: Squealing, or growling, or humming, or chattering noises.If is a rubbing sound, take a good flashlight and see what else might be the problem.
God bless your efforts.

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My washer will start but it will just make a winding sound


Sounds like the motor to drum belt or gear is broken. The motion generated by the motor is not getting to the drum because the belt is slipping or broken, or the gears are stripped causing the winding sound.

Weird rubbing or mild grinding noise when in spin cycle.


It sounds like the bearings on your tub are going. This is an expensive and difficult job to do. (approx $450 parts and labour and you may do more damage trying to take it apart)
