Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

No longer spinning/loud noise

I noticed today that when the washer goes to spin cycle there is a strange noise (kinda scratchy). When I turn it off I notice that the clothes are not stuck to the side evidencing that it spins. I tried the spin on each cycle choice (delicate, handwash, regular) - all sounds the same. After sitting it does appear that the barrell drains but clothes are still very wet. Help!!

Frigidaire front loading washer has loud spin cycle, Why?

That's a great question, Roth!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is making a loud noise during the spin cycle. This could be an issue with your bel, motor, or tub. In order to find the cause of your noise you may need to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend contacting a technician to come out. This will help prevent any future issues or personal injuries. -Matt

We have a 9 year old Sears Kenmore 90 Series top loading washer. We have noticed that it makes a loud slamming noise as it goes into the spin cycle! What the heck is going on???

If I remeber correctly
There are three springs that hold the tub to center.
either they have lost there tension or one is no longer connected.

Machine making a very loud noise when it spins

Sounds like the bearings are broken and it may need a major repair. You may need to consider to buy a new washer machine.

Rattling noise during spin cycle

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Clanking, sparking sound coming from washer

Need to know a little more info. Need to know if this noise starts when you first turn it on (during the fill up cycle), once the actual washer starts (wash cycle) or when it goes into spin cycle.
