Hi.

I

f you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise islouder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Washer has begun to sound like a four wheel drive vehicle going down the highway at 60 mph. The matching dryer had been squeaking and now has begun a thumping sound.


if it sounds like a jet plane taking off its the drum bearings and you need to replace these bearings,if your lucky you can find just the bearings and lip-seal,if not you will need to but the tub with the front bearing installed already and this gets expensive,otherwise to just replace these bearings and seal alone its about $500.00 to $900.00do it soon as the longer you wait the more labor intensive it gets

I have a kenmore front load washer model 970-c42072. I'm experiencing a loud noise in the drum on the spin cycle even when it is empty no matter what setting (slow normal fast) What would be the...


If you turn the inner wash drum by hand, what kind of noise do you hear? If it is a thumping kind of noise, it would mean that the spider support arms are broken. If the noise is a loud rumbling sound, similar to a jet engine when it is spinning, it would mean that you have a bearing seal failure and the bearings need to be replaced. Either problem is a big job to fix since the entire washer needs to be taken apart. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing. Sorry.

Kenmore front load washer when spinning sounds like a jet engine. It actually hurts you ears and you cannot shout loud enough to be heard. Spins out fine but is so loud.


It's probally the bearings are going bad. If you try to turn the drum by hand and it does not turn smoothly or has a rumbling sound, it means the bearings are bad. I had the same thing happen to my washer. Water seeped past the seal and the water started to rust out the inner bearing. You need to pull the washer apart to get to the bearings if you are handy. If not, the parts and labor are more than the price of a new machine.

Kenmore washer 3.5 super capacity. Machine spins


It sounds like your tub bearing is bad or going bad. It could be the adjustment on your spin cycle. Does your unit allow you to adjust this. Also are you overloading. Can you send me the brand and model of your unit and I help you more.

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
