Clinking sound in a Siemens WFXD5200UC/01 front loading washer


I would suggest that a small thin metal item has got into the outer drum unit. This is the space between the internal spinning drum and the outer casing. This can sometimes happen by the object passing between the rubber door seal and the drum. Not easy to get out, however if it is small enough it may eventually find its way into the pump filter trap. There is a small round cover plate at the bottom right hand side of the machine. Behind the cover is the filter trap, open it up (when machine empty) and check for the object every so often. To open the filter turn the plug cover about a third anticlockwise and it should release. Pull gentle on the plug to remove from the machine.

Had a squealing sound so replaced the guides still did it when warm so lubricated everything better but now sounds like a penny or something in the drum but dont see anything


If it sounds like a penny in the drum, it probably IS a penny in the drum, or some other object from someone's pocket. There are ways to deal with this. If like me you trust yourself to do it and you're convinced that the object in not going to come loose by its self and fall into the filter designed to catch these things, you CAN cross the line between bravery and foolishness: Empty the machine disconnect from mains and water, lift it between 2 chairs with the front load door dangling down and spin the drum until the object falls out onto the floor.....

If you're not quite that crazy and don't want to undertake this very dubious procedure, for which I refuse to vouch or take any responsibility, then you can let nature take its course. Most machines have a filter that objects eventually fall into. You can wait for it to find its way there (the noise will probably stop in the end) and then remove it from the filter. You haven't said what make and model machine you have, so here are some filter cleaning instructions that cover MOST models:


Locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model, there is either a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

OR

You will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won

Dryer works, but makes noise.


Hi,
There are a lot of moving part that can cause noises or vibration when get worn out.
  • Make sure dryer is level, and on a secure floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.
  • Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a squeak.
  • Check for foreign objects below the lint filter:-Remove lint filter, and look down opening. If you need to stick your hand down the opening to remove an object, be careful because the edges could be sharp. It would be advisable for you to wear a pair of work gloves.
  • Foreign objects in the drum front seal and worn or loose drum slides can cause a metal scraping noise as the drum rotates.
  • Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)
  • A frayed or damaged belt will make a thumping sound.
It is normal to hear the sound of the drum as it turns. If your dryer is making unusual noises and the above suggestions do not resolve the situation, discontinue use of the dryer until it has been checked by a qualified servicer. Continued use may cause wear of other parts making the repair more costly.

Thanks..!!

I have a LG dryer dle5977w and it has started making a rattling noise it is coming from the bottom left side by the lint fan does any one out there have a idea of what it might be


May be a small sock or dryer sheet caught in the blower wheel.
Remove filter and use a flashlight to see down the filter housing. You may be able to see item.
Rotate the drum each way by hand to help see item.
Remove with hooked wire hanger.

You may need a service call to remove object.

LG WD-14750SD noise coming from water pump near pump filter spay nozzle keeps on getting blocked with fine material having to pick out material with scriber and tweezers every 2 days


Hi,
It sounds as if you have a screw loose !
No, really - I believe there is a screw, nail or other large object in the drum or near the filter that needs to be found and removed.
The small particles you describe are probably pieces of plastic from the drum or pump body that have been chipped off. If left untreated, can lead to a big hole and expensive replacement.

Please empty and strip the pump pipework to check for nails etc, and check in base of drum.

I have been out to several with a hole clean through the drum caused by nails.

I cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please


Sometimes a bigger object might block the filter knob, and make it impossible to screw out. Then the only way is to remove the end of the sump hose attached to the filter and remove the stuck object.
(In my filter this object was an Umbraco key) :-)
