Question about Bosch WFK 2401

2 Answers

Loud noise our washer makes a loud noise but goes through all the cycles just fine. the noise is similar to what a baseball card in a bikes spokes would make. Hi, the same thing just started happening to my Bosch WFK2401UC. It starts to clank as the water is draining and during the spin cycle. It sounds like there is a coin mixed in with the laundry, but that's not the case. Any ideas? I need to keep doing laundry, but don't know if I'm doing more damage by continuing to use it before it's fixed. Thanks!

    Thank you both for your comments. Fulker, you're a genius...a penny is exactly what I found! I can't wait to tell my dad that his little girl fixed her noisy washer all by herself...well, sort of. ;-) Thanks again!!!

    I had the same fault as described by suzybeth. I then took the same action recommended and found her penny in my washer. Go figure. That penny certainly gets around!

    Thank you fulker, you're a genius, saved me $50, calling out AHS.
    That penny sure is clean! What I want to know now, is, how did SuzyBeth's penny get from Donald's house to mine?

There's probably a penny or something in the drain pump. I've had this happen several times and it's easy to fix.

1. Make sure the washer is drained.
2. Remove the plastic panel at the bottom held on with the two plastic screws.
3. Drain the last bit of water into a pan by opening the cap on the black rubber tube.
3. Unscrew the big white cap on the left.
4. Look in there and you will probably find a penny or hairpin, etc.
5. Put everything back together.

I think your manual will probably describe this too.

I'll bet you washed bras in the machine without first placing them in a bag? Have you noticed any bras missing their underwires that went AWOL about the time the noise started?

I had daughters who did this. It apparently is the most common problem with these machines. I'm afraid I don't remember how we resolved it as it is a &^$#$*^ to get anything out from behind the drum.

When I go at about 40miles(speed ) it's a loud the gears don't stick but the higher the speed the louder it get's need to kind of know what to tell a mechanic is to where to start to look.I doesn't


I would suspect it is a wheel bearing issue, if it sounds similar to a baseball card in the spokes of a bicycle, stays somewhat same pitch just louder with speed that is where I would look. Does noise go away or change when making turns?

I have a 95 Dodge neon that started making a noise like a baseball card in a bike spoke yesterday. I know my brakes are good probably at least at 50% and it only happens whan I"m applying the brakes....


does the noise come from the front? could be a warped rotor. when you step on the brakes a warped rotor causes the pads to rattle because its not flat any longer.turning the rotors will fix this. hope this helps

My jeep makes a sound from the rear for example today backed out of a parking spot and a loud clicking kinda like if u put a baseball card in the spoke of a bike only louder


Check the back brakes . I believe you have drum brakes in the back.The brake hardware. ie..Springs, clips.. come apart sometimes. And this will cause the clicking noise you hear

I have a lg washer Model# wm0642h and yesterday my wife was washing clothes and during the last spin cycle it started making a loud clicking noise kind of like when you put a baseball card in the spokes of...


Sound like something has gone in between the drum and the outertank, usually a bra wire.. unless you can see it poking through a hole in the drum the only other access points for retrieval are through the sump hose at base , or the removal of heating element.. other than that it becomes a strip down job... but usually the 2 access points are sufficient..

Rattling noise during spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Drum won't spin freely


Are you sure that there is nothing sticking through the holes in the drum like a nail etc or a screw from trouser pockets, it could be that the heating element has come loose and is scraping against the drum or that the bearings have gone.

Loud noise


Hard to say for sure without more info. Sounds like something caught in pump though. Give us the brand and a model number.
