Hi,

You never mentioned the Make and Model of the machine. But, yes i have seen this problem in most of the Brands specially Whirlpool. This is a bearing going out, this is a very expensive repair, in the neighborhood of $225 to $300.

Repair makes sense if your washer is less than 4 years old. If it is more than 4 years old, the ball is in your court. You need to take a wise decision.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired


Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Leaks water and is abnormally loud during spin cycle


Sounds like the bearings are broken. This is a serious issue and may be quite expensive. If your appliance still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for assistance. If not, don't be afraid to ask the customer service if they can provide some assistance to replace your washer (as the repair will be quite expensive), perhaps the manufacturer may be able to provide a rebate or something like that if they appreciate you as customer.

Good luck.

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

Washer makes loud, thumping noises during spin cycle.


support bracket that supports the tub is breaking. stick your hand inside and push up and down and see if its coming apart. if u look at it when it runs does it wobble?(the tub) if not take a look at the pulley on the back and see if its wobbly.

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.

Loud noise only during spin cycle and slight burning odor.


cooleyd, is the sound like a chunk a chunk a chunk noise. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low windings. the motor overheats and thus the burning smell. This is a common failure on these GE's. They came out with a motor kit with new harness and start cap. Remove the front panel by pushing on the 2 clips just below the top on each side. The panel will pull out. See if yours has the kit. It will have a start capacitor on the right side in front. On the motor harnes there will be a white and white/red wire. If you have a steady 120V during this jogging, you need the motor kit. Now with-out being there Im just trying to point you in the right direction. Other things to check would be the drain pump itself and whether there is something in between the tub and basket...Catriver..post back.
