Ecosmart loud during spin cycle

Our Ecosmart recently became very loud during the spin cycle -- almost sounds like a bad bearing? Still completes the cycle and clothes seems as dry as usual, just very loud during the high-speed spin.

Re: Ecosmart loud during spin cycle

My majestic sounds exactly the same on the spin cycle and I wondered what the problem was. Is your unit still under warranty? If so, call the customer service line and get a repair started. I am a firm believer in warranty work on products I have purchased. WE pay hard earned cold cash on our consumer products and WE should be taken care of properly.

Good luck and please let us know what the solution was to your problem.

Motor or bearing sounds bad, how do you replace it

You have to unscrew certain body areas to get into the motor area depending on the make and the first thing I would check is see if the belt is shot. A bad belt will make noises as well as cause slipping. If the belt is ok check the shafts and see if there is play like movement if you push up or down . If it's the motor you may have to replace or take it to a repair shop if you don't understand how to do it. It does take some work to change a bearing

Are there bearings for the drum for the LG1812? It became very loud during the high speed spin and there is play between the tub and the tub enclosure.

Loud rubbling during the spin cycle would definately indicate that the bearings have failed. Bearings can be replaced, and can be found online as, but it is rather difficult job if you are not mechancally inclined.

Loud noises during spin cycles

Hello, If the noise is a squealing or grinding sound, you are likely looking at a bad seal and bearing.
If the noise is a knocking sound, it's more likely a suspension or out of balance condition.

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles

I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Loud noise during spin cycle

is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.
