Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Essick 5 gallon evaporative humidifier is running extremely loud, possibly caused by some type of vibration or unusual (not normal) friction or contact.

The noise is very loud and not normal. Is there anything to check or to clean to try to fix this problem?

I would try to remove the back cover (after unplugging it) and see if there is an accumulation of dust on the fan motor. I would also check other places, if it is like mine the motor also turns a belt and they tend to get difficult for the motor to turn when full of lint.

SOURCE: Loud noise when dryer is running.

My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.

SOURCE: Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs

I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

SOURCE: My aprilair's humidifier motor began to make loud squealing noise

Put some lubricant, oil, WD40, etc. on shaft of fan. Spin the fan with your finger and work the oil into the shaft until the fan spins freely again. Reassemble and problem will be gone for 2-3 weeks. Repeat again until you want to replace the fan motor.

3 year old Essick tower D46720 sat during off season. Cleaned, filled and plugged in today and will not turn on. Lights are on; nothing happens.


The red water level light was on even though both tanks were full. The white float behind the filter WAS stuck to the bottom of the tank. I just moved it to its floating position and voila! it is working.

What causes our front loading washer to make exceeding loud noise when it enters a spin?


Sounds like a bearing seal is going. The seal has ruptured and grease of seeping out. The loud noise is the bearings rubbing against each other without adequate grease to reduce the friction. Failure will come soon if it is not fixed. The vibration is coming from the friction and possibly damaged ball bearings .

The fan is loud and the motor is running "hot". Is there a place to oil the fan's motor?


This is a sealed bearing motor so there is no oil ports. You can blow out with compressed air and spray motor shaft with WD-40. Be careful not to spray any lube inside motor. If you can get to them blow out motor cooling ports .this should help motor run cooler and quieter. Hope this helps you. Thanks
