Very loud when spinning.....

My washer has gotten extremely loud when it is spinning out. It's so loud that we can't hear the t.v. two rooms away. What could be causing this? Has the bearing gone dry?

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.

That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

Very loud rumbling noise during spinning

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.This will solve your problem.

If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning

Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.

Kenmore Oasis Spin Cyle Extremely Loud

Your probably right as most washing machines use bearings and they do wear out rather quickly on some machines ,depending on how yours was put together will determine on how easy it is to change , some manufactures made it much more easy than others .If you remove the back panel (that's if it has one )and after it has gone through its spin cycle and you have turned of the power you should be able to feel around where the bearing is incased to see if it has generated an amount of heat even though they are usually encased in oil as this would be a indication that it has failed, if you watch the machine clicking into spin mode ( by looking at the motor etc with the back cover removed)you will also get a better idea as to what parts have come into play and pinpoint the problem area .
