Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a frigidare GLWS1349AS1 top load washer that developed a load grinding noise during the spin cycle. I checked the drive belt and that looked cracked and worn in a couple of spots so I replaced that but it didn't take care of the scraching sound. Would you please let me know where the next spot to look is for this problem. Thanks! Mahem51

Your transmission is shot. There's some bearings down at the base of the transmission that are notorious for going bad. Problem is you need to replace the whole transmission. Not worth it in my book. Hope that helps.

Pump or bearing problem?


If this is a top load maytag, the pump bearing sleeve will rub the pump pulley and make a grinding noise. Replace the pump.

Frigidare front load washer has loud banging on spin cycle. After much work we reallized one shock was broken of which we repaced both now it still making the loud banging shaking motion. Also the washer...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since the suspension is ok and it is level, check your drive motor and spin bearing. Usually, these are the trouble parts when loud noises are associated with the spinning cycle. Your drive motor controls the spinning. Since the noise is during spinning, that is probably where your problem lies.

The washing machine started making a grinding noise during wash cycle (minor) and a much louder grinding noise during the spin cycle. Is this a bearing? and is it replacable? Maytag MAV7600


sounds like a bearing... although it could be the water pump... water pump is an easy fix... bearing is not an easy fix... take the belt off the bottom of the pump (under the machine) and see if it spins freely by turning it w/ your hand... or if it seems really stiff... if it looks good then it's def. your bearing...

May be the bearing in your direct drive shaft. If washer is a belt drive, the belt could be frayed

Washer has started making a heck of racket during the drain/spin cycle. It's not consistant. Two loads may go thru ok no noise. A third load and it will make a very loud grinding chain like noise.


Grinding noises are most often the result of a failing water pump. The noise can increase during the spin\drain cycle due to the added load on the pump. Although less likely it could also be the drive belt rubbing on something or a pulley bearing failing. If you are able to locate and remove the drive belt, you should be able to turn the water pump pulley by hand. If the pump does not turn smoothly it is bad.

Make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle


Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!

Squealing noise during spin cycle


The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.
