Hi
The grinding sound is because of damaged or broken bearings.
You will have to see if the motor rotor bearing is damaged or the drum bearing before you change anything.

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.

Loud grinding noise when on when it starts to spin?


If it is a front loader, then it sounds like the drum bearings have failed, spin the drum from the front by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then bearings have failed.

Very noisy on spin cycle only


Hi, please describe the type of noise you are hearing. If it is a grinding type noise, it is likely to be the drum bearing.

Grinding Noise


Hi,

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.

Hope this helps.

God Bless.

Noisy grinding sound when drum is turning


Remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand from inside of drum, if it is noisy or rumbling, then main bearings have failed
If no noise with belt removed, then check elsewhere to pinpoint noise.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Drum makes grinding noise when turning


Hi.
spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then you probably have drum bearing failure.
Another possibility is one or more of the drum paddles may have come adrift..
These can be replaced.

Grinding Sound


Sounds like the brakes have become noisy, just like in an automobile if they glaze over they start to squeak. This really wont hurt the machine but if you dissasemble the machine (or pay a professional at the most 1.5 hr labor since your washer is the best design and fairly simple to repair) and clean the brakes (basket drive assy) and the drum (part of the tub support)
