Hi,

Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back.

Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.)

Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.

Why does my washer make noise before the spin cycle


Depending on what the noise sounds like, these front load washers have rear bearing issues. The drum bearing is just not strong enough to support the weight and the larger the drum the more weight and I doubt they use larger bearings for more cubic feet machines. They need a buddy bearing or some sort of support to take all the weight off the rear bearing.

Washing machine makes a loud whining noise when in high speed spin that it has not made before. Noise seems to come from the soap inlet tube.


usually when a front load washer starts making noise in the spin cycle it's not good,most of the time it's from the owner using to much detergent,it eats the spider gear and then it's time for a new washer,the gear costs around 500 bucks,next it will start to bang around and get real loud,i've seen the rubber boot get ripped off because it bangs all around,if you're using alot of detergent most likely this is the start of your problem,when you read the back of the bottle the measurements are for a top load washer not a front load so you better check that,also you could have a broken shock,also you can pull the middle of the pump out and check to see if there are any filings in there,i've seen that before.put it on high spin and listen to it,if it sounds like a knocking sound don't waste your money and call someone in,change out the washer and watch the cd that comes with it and use less detergent,i hope this isn't your problem but when the noise comes from the spin cycle it's usually the spider gear.

Washing machine is really loud


It sounds as if the inner water seal has failed and allowed water to get into the bearings.. Rust on the bearings means they are no longer smooth..Hence the noise! Replacing the bearings (and possibly the shaft) is a big job. This is not an unusual problem with front lad washers. Too much detergent will shorten the life of the seal/bearings...Get quotes...Nomess

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer


No, I'll tell you before forking out $ $ for some bad news.The noise is your bearing. You have to replace the outer tub .Its not going to be repaired any other way.The idiots who designed this washer made this a non servicable bearing.The labor is high not to mention the outer tub is also.REPLACE THE OUTER TUB.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
