Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
Remove rear panel, and remove the drive belt.
From the front open the door ,and spin the drum by hand,
If it feels rough, or is rumbling at all, then the main drum bearings have failed.
If no obvious noise, then it could be the motor bearings that are noisy.
Hope this helps.

My Kenmore stackable washer makes very load noises in the rinse and spin cycle but still works. Anyone have idea why it's making so much noise


Try spinning the drum by hand when empty, the faster the better. Does it sound noisy or is there a grinding sound? It should sound silent or whir as everything turns. If noisy then it may well be the drum bearings. If it clunks then it may be one of the arms that holds the drum in place has broken.

Spin - loud noise - switched off - drum wont turn


I'm just hazarding a guess here, but it sounds like the bearings have gone (if you try to turn the drum by hand and it sounds noisy and grinding/crunchy then I think it would be the bearings). I'm certainly no expert though.

DLE2050 making strange spinning noise


I guess I wasnt clear enough. The dryer works ok, except for the rattling sound now. It will start when i push the start button, it heats, and dries the clothes. Just noisy where before the flow sensor went off, it was pretty quiet.

Loose wire from clothing rattling in between drum and drum housing


1.Turn your machine on its side and study how to 'unscrew the drum assembly 2. Fashion a guy wire and make a hook and if your lucky you might 'fish it out ,good luck.

Washer makes a rattling noise when spinning


Hi

If its rattling check the drum for anything caught in it.Washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. 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.

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.)

Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.

Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.

Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.

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.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

My Ariston A1636S Is making a very loud crackling or rattling noise when it spins. Almost like something is loose inside it. I've checked and nothing has fallen into the drum. Can someone help?


Remove the dive belt, and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed, if no noise, then look elsewere.
