Frigidaire FWS445RBS loud agitator noise

The agitator noise on my washer just started getting louder. It's kind of like a knocking noise. The agitator is working properly. Is the motor going bad?

    I just noticed the spin cycle does not work now. The washing machine went through the cycles, the water drained, however the softener did not dispense and the spin cycle did not work. Any advice?

I'm not sure...you've given me two different areas of concern. The first is the mechanical noise and then the nonfunctionality of the spin. That could be a pair of problems. Mechanical noise could be from any number of places. The fact that neither the spin nor the dispenser function occur could be the timer. If this is a mechanical timer (one you turn to get the unit to start), it probably is bad. I'd go there first. Once you get your functions back, then, find out where the mechanical noise is coming from. If the timer is expensive versus a service call...you might want to pay the service call, get your proper diagnosis and go on from there.

The first thing I would check is whether the agitator is cracked. Often, there is a knob/nut you can remove to take the agitator out. If not that...you have a loose assembly or something in the transmission. Check the easy things first. Chances are that if you try to 'rock' the agitator yourself...it will show you that it is damaged.

Check the rubber mounts under the compressor and look for any lines touching the sides of the cabinet. The gurgling and clunking are often normal. good luck. Roger

These are the stabilising blocks. They are there to stop the knocking and noise. You should be able to buy them. Try the manufacturer or go on Yahoo or Google search for wash machine spares. Hope this helps.

Washer model PAVT244AWW agitation noise


Sounds like the motor is going bad. It will only get louder before it finally stops. There is a device that assists the agitation motion that may be bad or is going bad.

Front Loading Washer LOUD NOISE


IF IT ROARS LIKE A JET PLANE TAKING OFF, THE SPIN BEARING IS FAILING. PROBABLY, THE REAR SEAL HAS FAILED ALLOWING WATER TO GET INTO THE BEARING.
THE BEARING HAS LOST ITS LUBRICATION SO IT IS GETTING DRY. IT WILL CONTINUE TO GET LOUDER AND LOUDER THE LONGER REPAIRS ARE PUT OFF.
THE ENTIRE BACK HALF OF THE OUTER TUB WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THE BEARING IS PART OF THAT ASSEMBLY. CAN BE A COSTLY REPAIR.
