Most likely loose change that somehow got to the drain pump and is caught in the drain pump impellor. If you dont remove the pump and remove the coins they will crack a hole in your drain pump caseing and leak water all over. I am going on pump number three for a few quarters falling out of my pocket , and not to happy. machine should have a by pass for loose objects or a better seal in the tub.to stop objects from getting to bottom of machine.

Can I safely use my washer if I hear something metal scraping during spin cycle?


You can, but I wouldn't. The outer skin of the drum is made of plastic. If it is a coin, it could dislodge, get caught again in mid spin and punch a hole straight through the plastic.

Get a flashlight and look between the seal and the outer drum when you open the door.

On spin cycle sounds like change or rocks spinning around in drum.


Could be a bad bearing or something loose on the drum that doesn't rattle until you get up to spin speed. Look for something like pins, nails or screws stuck in the holes of the drum, or possibly under the protuberances (fins) inside the drum. Does the sound occur all through the spin cycle or only at top speed?

Whirlpool spin cycle rattling


Well, it just might be. :-) More than likely you have something in your machine basket that is loose. Probably a coin or something from clothes previously dried or washed in the machine. This is quite common, especially for folks who carry coins or loose objects in their pockets. Remove whatever is loose in the basket and you will have solved your problem.

Hotpoint aquaries wf321 is making a loud clicking/knocking noise when its in the spin cycle, to me sounds like a poss bearing gone or maybe something is caught up?


From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy or rumbling, then the drum bearings have failed.
It is possible that there is something caught between the inner and outer drum.

During the washing cycle there is a noise that sounds like something is "clicking" inside ( kind like washing something made of metal inside the drum). it is steady and lasts through the whole washing...


I would suspect that something is caught between the inner and outer drum, like a bra wire or something similar.
If it washes and spins o/k, then I don't think it is a fault with the washer.
It will probably break up, or find it's way into the pump filter.
Hope this helps.

Something rattling under the drum


Strangely enough, I found the problem to be in the motor. If the noise becomes pronounced during the high speed spin cycle, then that is the problem. I had a repairman out for mine and they wanted to replace the drum, however when I took off the back and removed the belt, I could turn the drum separate from the motor and could hear that the problem was in the motor bearing, not the drum. Hope this helps.

Something stuck in drum, spinning cycle loud hammering/clacking sound


hi there,

sounds like you may have something caught between the tumbler and the cabinet. since the drum has holes in it, can you have a look if you can see anything that's come of clothing, like a bra wire. it's usually something bigger.

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
