With the unit empty spin the drum by hand, you should feel the resistance of the drive belt and motor and hear the whine from the motor but nothing else, no grinding or lumpiness.
You can usually tell by excessive dirt at the back of the drum aswell right in the centre where the bearings are. If they are breaking up they tend to make a mess and break up the housing or shaft too

Whirlpool cabrio started making a loud noise when spinning. I've replaced the suspension springs before. Is that all I need to order? It's been a while.


Sounds like the bearings are toast. These machines have a poor seal in the tub which allows water to penetrate the bearings, drying/rusting them out. Go on "youtube" and search your problem. I use a 2"X4" and a jack on the center shaft to lift the drum out. Bearing tool and shaft/bearing, seal kit is approx. $150. Should take you approx. 4 hrs. if you're handy.

When it goes into the spin cycle it makes a loud knocking noise like a gear or belt is bad. what can i do, it is only 1 1/2 years old.


The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle.If the bearing is getting out of its way then its faulty weak motor causing this.Check out both the bearing and the motor. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Extremely loud noise when spinning. Sounds like dry bearing


If you have loud noises on spin it is quite possibly bearings.
You may also find that the inner drum becomes loose and may contact and wear the outer drum..
Replacing the bearings and possibly the shaft going through them is quite a big job. Best left to an experienced tech..
Get quotes before getting the job done. Check new prices also...
Good luck....Nomess

Check your belt it may be lose. A lose belt will cause a squealing noise and the machine spin slower or take time to come up to full speed

When spinning washer making an unusually loud sound. Sounds like a bearing. Can you confirm?


Does it make the noise when spinning the drum by hand? If so, chances are you're right, the bearing is shot. No way to confirm without taking it apart and isolating the shaft and bearing then checking for noise or play. Good luck.

Loud noise when it spins


Sounds like main drum bearing noise, try turning the drum by hand, if it feels rough or you can hear it grinding or rumbling, then it is the the main bearings that have failed..
You will probably need to call an engineer.
