Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

"Sreeching" sound when trying to spin.

Sometimes when the machine trys to spin it makes a screeching sound. I took the back panel off and found when the belt spins the big center hub does not. Is this the belt going bad or a bigger problem that will not allow the clothes to spin?

Kenmore Washer 2600 makes a screeching noise after it fills with water and the wash cycle begins.


It is probably a belt. Usually this noise starts with the spin cycle. Try spraying some belt dressing on it. You could replace the belt, but be;t replacement is usually a royal pain in the rear.

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

My dryer is a model number GLER341AS2 and when I turn it on it makes a sreeching noise. Now the screeching has turned into a louder noise almost like a rubbing thud.


The symptoms you describe indicate that your dryer drum bearings are faulty: there is usually a large 'felt' bearing around the opening which support the drum and prevent metal to metal contact (screeching noises)- The drum must be removed to get to this front bearing (which is normally glue to the dryer front panel at the drum opening): it is not a trivial job and is not normally replaceable by end-users.

Hope the explanation helps.

No picture for the TV


The bulb wouldnt make it screech, that sounds like a bearing in the color wheel. You may want to consider getting a service manual for your set. If so you can get one for your model for 10.99 at the following link, and they will email it to you if you go back to the site and request that they email it instead of regular mail. Hope this helps. Here is the link.

GE Model WHDSR209D2WW makes unbearable loud metal Screeching noise


ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.
