Noisy spin cycle

If the machine has been overloaded you may have partially damaged the coupling between the motor and the gearbox.or you may have damaged the gearbox itself...The coupling is a simple job for a tech but the other problem can be more expensive. Fortunately changing a gearbox does not take a long time. Check with a tech....Good luck....Nomess

Really noisy when in spin mode

If the machine is brand new then you should have removed the transit bolts from the back of the machine before use. If you have had it some time then you will find that the concrete counterweight on the underside of the machine has come loose and needs to be re-tightened. It can be quite awkward on some machines so if it is too indepth for you then please ask a competent person to help you.

posted by mikey b from st Helen's. after experiencing a similar fault on my wt741.i set about determined to find the cause of the noise.On spin,particularly fast spin the washing machine was making a horrendous vibrating banging noise.i eventually traced the fault to the lower concrete weight which simply needed tightening. which is held on with 4 10mm bolts.the weight can be easily accessed by turning the washer on its the outer drum with a small block of wood against casing before lying on its side. you will need a 10mm spanner to get on bolts.hope this was helpful !

Washing machine really noisy on spin!

Probably main drum bearings worn
If you turn the drum by hand and it feels rough or noisy ,then definately bearings worn and noisy.
