My dum is making loud noise when spin,s


sounds like possibly a sloppy bearing causing the drum to wobble excessively nothing can be done to avoid this other than change the bearing. always assuming your load isn't seriously out of balance of course.

My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.


Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

Why does my washing machine make a load noise on the last 6 minutes of the spin cycle..especially when I have bed linens in.


It is not unusual for a machine to make a lot of noise and jump about when washing sheets as they can sit out of ballance in the drum. That is why the drum turns to and fro and short spins trying to balance the wash. If how ever the noise is rumbling like a big lorry going by, then I'm afraid it sounds like your drum bearings have gone. Replace bearings by an engineer or replace machine either is expensive.

My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle


Hi
Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

Spin cycle is of balance


stpnlok,
Did you follow my post at this link Clutch repair post for your repair ?
I’m a little confused by this description “”there is what seams to be a sealed plastic ring on the top of the stainless drum is there suppose to be liquid in it there is a liquid in there””.
Maybe go to searspartsdirect.com and look at the exploded view and give me a p/n.
“”I had to replace the top bearing on the "drive shaft" it was making alot of noise the cluth assembly seamed ok but still kicks out on spin cycle””
Are you saying you replaced the upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing assembly only? If so that tells me you purchased the whole clutch assembly. I know of no parts supplier that sells the upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing assembly alone. We Are talking about a FAV6800A machine correct? To make sure I’m following here is the clutch parts view.

Here is pic of the same clutch causing dC errors prior to clean up.

Is this the part you speak of ""I had to replace the top bearing on the "drive shaft" it was making alot of noise the cluth assembly seamed ok but still kicks out on spin cycle""
If we are talking about a FAV6800A or FAV9800A I can help you.
Let me know....Rich

When my machine spins out it makes a raspping noise then makes a klunking noise. can you help me?


could be either something inside the outer drum or the bearings are breaking down. open the door and wobble the drum side to side and top to bottom(push the top while pulling the bottom) and if it moves alot (more than a few millimetres) then the bearings are on their way out.

Washing machine drum is very wobbly


* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

I have a GE front load washer model # whdvh626fww. it keeps making alot of noise when in the spin cycle and the belt keeps coming off. at first I thougt it was out of balance but that was not it . when I...


I have a different suggestion based on my washer's similar problem. If the black stuff is powdery and localized at the back of the unit, more than likely the culprit is the drum pulley itself is warped, causing the belt to chafe against the drum. The black powder is rubber residue from the scraping of belt on plastic. No need to replace unit. New belt and new pulley run about $70 each.
