Before it gets damage, you must replace the worn out bearings. Shut the power supplying the pump off. Close all the valves (intake and discharge). Take the pump off from where it is installed and disassemble it to change the bearings, as well as the mechanical seal. Reassemble and reinstall to its location. Open the intake valve if there's any. Open and fill full with water the priming port, and have it closed thereafter.
Put the power and switch it on to run the pump. Then,
slowly open the discharge valve to desired level. Send
us your e-mail comments for us give further assistance if needed. God bless you.

My dryer will run and dry clothes but as soon as the drum starts to turn it has a constant squeeling noise ( not a squeek like the wheels would cause) what is my problem and how can I fix it?


some dryers has a center bearing on the rear of the drum, once this bearing dries out it will make noise along as the drum turns.

Rear Drum with Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing is not sold separately, the entire rear drum will have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the bearing might be worn out. As bearings wear out from friction they gradually get worse and worse until they fail. In the meantime they get louder. If the noise primarily happens during the spin cycle the bearing is likely the problem.

U-Joint Kit

Motor Coupling

If the washer is making a loud noise the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Clutch

If the washer is making a loud noise in the spin cycle, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may become loud during spin or just after the spin cycle finishes. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Samsung big wash noise when in use no error message or leaks


Drain Pump
To check the drain pump first see if you hear it when it is agitating if it is it is unlikely to be the drain pump. If you hear it in spin or drain cycle check the filter.Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean the filter. If you hear the pump making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump.

Struts/ Shocks
The struts can cause squeaking noise or vibrations. You will need to remove the back panel , top panel, or lower front panel then run machine to check if the noise is coming from the struts. If it is replace the struts

Motor
If the motor hums, rattles,or squeals replace the motor. This is easy to do. Remove the back panel then run machine to check for noises.

Belt
Check the belt for making noises by removing the rear panel and then running the machine, if it is making any noise replace the belt

Rear Bearing
To check the rear bearing remove the back panel and listen for noises or any water leakage around the bearing. If any noise is heard replace the rear bearing. Check with service manual all bearings are not repairable. The outer drum may get damaged trying to replace this bearing on some models.

Proceed according and fix it. God bless you

Bad oil pump ?


Turn your A/C off, the compressor can make noise if bearings are dry or system is low on compressor oil.
Remove your serpentine belt. Turn pulleys by hand to check for roughness. Bearings in those pulleys routinely go bad.
You may get computer warnings with the following test, but with serpentine belt removed, run engine for 2 or 3 minutes. Do this on a warm engine after serpentine belt is removed. The warm oil will not mask the problem like cold thick oil can. Noise generated means problem is internal.
If this is a stick shift transmission sometimes the clutch bearing can make noise and is a sign that bearing is bad.

This water pump is making funny noise how can i solve this


A water pump on any auto making noise is a sign of bearing failure on the water pump drive stem. The only remedy is to have the water pump replaced or replace it yourself. The bearing gets water intrusion or dries out and the bearing fails. The water pump is not expensive but labor costs can be substantial depending upon the location of the water pump. Many water pumps are driven by the timing belt on smaller cars. Gaining access to the water pump often involves removing the timing belt cover and the timing belt. Failure to reinstall the timing belt in the exact same position as it was removed can cause catastrophic engine failure. Without your vehicle make and model this response is generic most vehicles.

I have a loud engine noise--somewhat high pitch whine--except really loud and only after so many rpms. The noise happens when I am running my air conditioner. Ten to 15 miles after I first noticed the...


So when you turn off the air con the noise stops ..

Noisier than when it's new (Atlantis washer machine)


If a bearing runs freely and does not stop within a few seconds, the bearing is dry and needs to be replaced. A bearing with the proper amount of grease will not spin very long due to resistance from the grease. A bearing that makes noise when spinning needs to be replaced. This means that the surface where the needles/balls run on is pitted and the bearing will self destruct.
The name of the bearing is a "thrust bearing".

High Ringing Noise


Sounds like it just needs lubricating. It's probably dry seals rubbing against the stainless shaft.

Bad bearings usually make grinding noises. Replacing bearings can be a DIY job, but not a teriffically simple one.
