Re: broken washing machine

The machine water ceal and bearings must be changed before it spoil the drum.there is small metal under washer drum to give u sine noise if the drum unstable.and if you keep using the the machine,drum get demaged.mostly all front loading machines are like that.the test is,open back cover check if there is rust on the centre shaft,that means leaking throw the ceal and the door and try to list up the inner drum if plays means problem with bearings as above.

Machine fills, then on entering wash cycle makes loud grinding noise kinda like a dull hacksaw on rusty metal.

Does it make the sound when you turn the drum by hand? It could well be the drum bearings that have gone.

Have a Maytag Atlantis model MAVT634AWW- on all cycles it makes a loud noise like bearings grinding- what could it be and how can I fix it-Thankyou

The first place to look is if something has gotten trapped between the agitator and the drum. Typically coins etc can find there way near or under but not cause a problem. If something has caught it would have to be metal or hard plastic. The agitator can be removed.

Second place is to see if something has become stuck in one of the holes of the drum. It would have to be like a wire/nail that is scraping against the tub held in place by the drum.

Last resort! Being a Maytag you may have a longer then expected warranty on the moving parts. If you do it might be about time to get the Maytag Guy off his b---.

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.

Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

When in spin cycle there is a grinding noise


Here are solution on how to solve the noisy problem.

Although a noisy washing machine is not typically a sign that something is broken, it definitely can be annoying. Usually the noise from a washing machine can be fixed fairly easily, but a few different fixes may need to be tried before it can be determined what the true culprit of the noise was.
Instructions what you need to solve this problem.

  • Flashlight,Screwdriver,Drive belt
  1. Check the drum bearings if the washing machine is making a rumbling noise. The noise may possibly stem from water getting into the bearings. Take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If there is a rumble, remove the bearings and replace them with new ones.
  2. Check the spider at the back of the drum. The spider is the three-armed device that holds the drum in place. If there is one loud noise on each revolution of the drum, there is a good chance the spider has partially become loose. Tighten the bolts on the spider to silence the noise it causes.
  3. Check for coins. If the noise the washing machine makes sounds like metal on metal, there is a good chance that some change has slipped from a pocket and is now in the dryer. Take a flashlight and look in the drum for coins, paper clips, and other small items.
  4. Adjust the legs. Many washing machines make more noise than they should because they have not been properly balanced. Re-adjust the legs to make sure that they are all even. This will keep the washing machine from moving and will ensure that the noise it creates while it moves will go away.
  5. Replace the drive belt. Often a high-pitched squeaky noise can come from a drive belt that has been worn down. Simply replacing the old belt with a new one will fix this problem.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 - Grinding Noise From Drum

This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.
