    What do I need to do to get to the nut, Mine is a top loading! But it sounds very possible? Please give me more feed back.


  • Mr No-Fix it Mar 07, 2008

    Mine does not have a cover! Some how you need to take the whole cabinet off to expose the working parts,it' all one piece. It looks like a major task, or it just a bunch of screws and it comes off? I don't want to disconnect a bunch of stuff to get to the nut. Could it be the bearing? It is located in the garage and experiences the temp changes which in central Florida is pretty mild. Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks Folks;

In order to get to the nut you have to take the back cover off of the machine and you will immediately see the nut.

Mine was doing this and my husband tightened the huge bolt on the back of the drum. This is where the belt attaches. Evidently this bolt when loose can cause that outrageous sound.

Very loud rumbling noise during spinning

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.This will solve your problem.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning

Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.
