Its one of two things 1. something is stuck under the lip of the drum,like a dime or paperclip. Fell all around the lip of the drum and you should feel it. 2. your Bearing Glides are worn down, they run about $5 each and yours has four of them, you will need to pull it apart to change them, its not to hard to do yourself

Testimonial: "it appears to be #1 as whatever was causing the noise disappeared (could not feel anything) so that should rule out the bearings. phew!! TY"

Can I safely use my washer if I hear something metal scraping during spin cycle?


You can, but I wouldn't. The outer skin of the drum is made of plastic. If it is a coin, it could dislodge, get caught again in mid spin and punch a hole straight through the plastic.

Get a flashlight and look between the seal and the outer drum when you open the door.

Hello my Wirlpool washing machine makes a scratching noise when the drum is turning during the wash. The noise disappears however when the washing machine is spinning. Would it be worn out bearings?


You would hear the bearings in the spin cycle if it was them ....it would sound like you are at the airport...you will probably find that a bra wire has caught itself inbetween the drum and the tub and is scratching as it goes around.

Our dryer has a terrible squeak. We replaced the


The terrible squeak is probably the idler pulley shaft spalling in the idle pulley mount. When the idler pulley siezes to to pulley shaft it spins in the mount and makes a horrible racket.

It can be the motor bearings also but I doubt it at this time. With the belt off you can spin the motor and listen for any odd sound. If you hear nothing then the problem is definately the idler pulley assy.

It is normal for the drum to float in place. When there is a problem with the drum or drum felts, you usually hear a cyclic scrape or grinding sound that is concurrent with each rotation of the drum.

Thanks for using FixYa.

DRUM MAKES NOISE WHEN TURNING ALMOST LIKE IT'S RUBBING AGAINST SOMETHING INSIDE THE MACHINE. SOUNDS LIKE DRUM IS TRYING TO STICK AT SOME POINT OF ROTATION.


check that all the support springs are connected and one is not broken. It is also possible that something is between the drum and the frame.

Something stuck in drum, spinning cycle loud hammering/clacking sound


hi there,

sounds like you may have something caught between the tumbler and the cabinet. since the drum has holes in it, can you have a look if you can see anything that's come of clothing, like a bra wire. it's usually something bigger.

Maytag Washer Noise While Spinning


Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back. Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.) Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.

Spin cycle trouble


possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still. any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.
