I dog motor makes a whirring noise

My daughter has had her i dog amp'd since May 2009. The dog makes a whirring noise when the foot taps and when the head turns. This has happened since we first used it, but very quietly. It seems to have become much worse as the noise is quite loud now

Sounds like this is an problem that cannot be repared. I would say return it but its to late. You should replace it. Or try manually taking it apart and fixing it back. =]

CDR 2005 VDO makes a whirring noise when being used - how can I fix this?


If the whirring noise goes up and down based on engine speed then it is a weak ground connection. Also, if you have amps (I have a Kicker mono-block running a cheap MTX 2 by 10" subs,and Kicker 4 channel amp running 4 kicker speakers). I promise I won't say "Kicker" one more time!
I have a whirring noise too just like yours. There are a lot of electronics and wireless devices in modern cars these days that are going to interfere with your audio electronics...especially cell phones operating through the audio system. I can't stress that enough. Cell phones operate through powerful towers which is why they can be so tiny. As you talk the whirring will go up and down based on Tranter level and distance to tower. Hope this helps. I have 1000 watts, so it tends to drown out any minor whirring. LOL.

Dryer makes loud whirring noise when try turn on, won't start


I am guessing that it does not do anything after it makes the noise?. If you hear something running after the whirring noise, but the drum is not turning it is possible the belt has broken or slipped off the motor pully. If you hear no noise after the first startup and it completely stops making any sounds then it may be a motor problem. I am no pro, just a do it yourselfer. www.repairclinic.com can help ya more than me. Just have the model number ready when you go there and look at the symptoms. Hope this helps.

Why doesn't the engine turn over?


The starter is not engaging or the spark plug is missing. Try tapping (not hammering) the body of the starter with a wooden object like a hammer handle. If you use a metal object like the head of the hAMMER YOU WILL CRACK THE CASE OF THE STARTER AND RUIN IT. sorry about the caps lock, I don't feel like going back and correcting... Just a bit of tappy tapping might do the trick. Have a friend turn the ignition switch so you gat easily tappy tap the starter. Capische?

Noisy during agitate cycle whirlpool washer


Originally posted as solution to Kenmore 24992300 failure to agitate and loud whirring noise during spin cycle.... Hope this helps:


The problem as I noticed it was that the washer would start making a super high-pitched and very loud whirring noise during the spin cycle, and that when I would open the lid, the drum would not be spinning, but when I would close the lid, the drum would start spinning. I was okay with this during that load but after reading here and taking it apart, I realized what had happened:

The agitator dogs are supposed to have a 3-toothed profile on each one, but they become worn over time due to being made of a soft plastic. The dogs should "throw out" into an inner ring gear during normal operation, turning the entire drum. But when they became worn enough to slip, they would still throw out, grinding them at very high speed into the inner ring gear. Since they are made of a softer plastic than the gear, they were just getting more and more worn.

I assume the way this was supposed to fix itself was that when the outer tooth on the dog became worn, the next one would engage, but that didn't happen.

Because the dogs are made of such a soft plastic, I was able to cut a new tooth profile into each one, so that when they were put back in they would function correctly. It takes very little effort and a few minutes with an x-acto knife to cut the right profile.

I'm going to buy the replacement dogs, which being a manufacturer substitute will hopefully be made with a better tooth profile, from harder plastic, or both.

As another note, who knows how long the dogs weren't engaged correctly during agitation, causing clothes to sit without really being washed, but without the high pitched air raid siren. So probably a good idea to replace or repair them immediately, even if you can get it to work intermittently.

Marshall MG30FX loud tapping sound in time with delay even when no guitar plugged in and effects turned off


Hi J Wade. I'm Dave P. I'm not a guitar amp expert or technician but I've been using amps and effects for 35 years and there are a couple things I can suggest.

That kind of periodic noise/switch noise can be a symptom of having the polarity of the amp reversed. If your amp has a 3-position OFF/ground switch, try reversing the ground. If it doesn't, take the plug and turn it around. Just don't get near a microphone unless you're sure your amp is grounded the same as the P.A. It could fry your lips off.

Dirty switches to that too. You said the noise is in time with the delay's tap time which is set by a foot switch. If tapping that switch the first time generates a pop, the delay may have catch it and is repeating it. Turn off the amp, remove the delay foot switch and turn it back on. Still noisy? If not, give the foot switch a good cleaning.

When you turn the EFFECTS knob up, is it scratchy? Might need the potentiometer cleaned. What happens when you specifically turn the DELAY level down all the way while using the other effects? Noise still there?

That's all I've got. Hopefully, it was helpful. Don't wrack your brain over this too much. There could very well be an internal problem with your amp that will require a trip to the shop. You don't want to open it up yourself. Rock on but be safe.

Dave P.
