What causes our front loading washer to make exceeding loud noise when it enters a spin?


Sounds like a bearing seal is going. The seal has ruptured and grease of seeping out. The loud noise is the bearings rubbing against each other without adequate grease to reduce the friction. Failure will come soon if it is not fixed. The vibration is coming from the friction and possibly damaged ball bearings .

What might be causing a Noise and rough pedaling from main crank area of the bike?


Sounds like a bearing issue in the "bottom bracket" or the housing that holds the cranks, in other words. I would remove the crank and inspect the bearings. There are several different types of bearings. If your bike uses sealed bearings, your only option is usually to just replace them. a "caged" bearing consists of several actual ball bearings, set into a round metal cage that holds them in place. If you have caged bearings, remove them clean them thoroughly, and then re-pack them with bearing grease before reinstalling. also be sure to clean the bearing cups, or any surface that they may come into contact with. Any dirt, sand, or grit makes for a quick death for your bearings. Some bikes just use free floating ball bearings set into the bearing cups. If this is the case, smear a blob of grease into the bearing cups. This will hold the ball bearings in place while you install the rest of them. Be careful when re-inserting the crank not to knock any of the ball bearings down into the bottom bracket. From the sounds of your description, you may be missing a ball bearing or two. Check to make sure there are no large spaces between any two ball bearings. If you could fit another ball bearing into the bearing cup without crowding any of the others out, then you are missing a bearing. Re-assemble everything as it came apart. When tightening the crank into the bottom bracket, be cautious not to over tighten. The crank arm shouldn\'t have any "wiggle" from side to side, and yet should still spin freely on its bearings. I sincerely hope this helps.

When in spin cycle sounds like a large bolt is spinning around washer shakes spin cycle really fast scrapeing noise


The scraping noise is the grinding noise from the worn out ball bearings. Replace them. You can open the back cover by removing the screws. To fix new bearings remove the drum wheel & then the bearings. It is purely a mechanical job.

My kenmore front loading washer is screeching during spin cycle and seems to be spinning poorly at times. what is going on?


The wash drum should spin smoothly by hand without much noise. It is supported with two sets of ball bearings. If the water seal fails, water starts to leak into the inner bearing and they start to rust causing a loud noise especially during the spin cycle. The only way to fix it is to replace the bearings and seal. It a big and expensive job to replace the bearings since you literally need to take your washer apart to get to the bearings. Sorry.

When in spin cycle machine makes a very loud whining noise


Most common cause for your whining noise is because the seals have failed/worn and allowed water into the bearings..Rusty ball bearings are not smooth...Hence the noise.....Probably needs bearing/seal and probably shaft replacement....Big job..Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Very noisy when Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 is on spin


It is the main drum bearings that is causing the noise.
There is no provision made for lubrication.
It can be done as a DIY fix, but it is a very involved repair, as it means having to remove the whole inner workings of the washer,
Not a task I would recommend unless you know what you are doing, and feel competent to tackle it.
Good luck.

Noise during high speed spin cycle


sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.
