Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Object in the drum

Something is inside the drum of my washer. It makes a horrible clicking sound when you turn the drum either way. When I stopped the washer and drained it, I thought it went down with the water. But as soon as I started another load, about 5 minutes into that LOAD, it surfaced again. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

This aint an easy fix.
Sometimes a bra wire gets through the holes and gets stuck.
the only thing you can do is split the drum housing and empty it out.
No hard to to but takes a lot of time and patience.
Sometimes when you are lucky take the pump hose off the drum housing and look in that hole. sometimes it gets stuck there

Scraping noise from drum when turning by hand.


Foreign object? Possible a broken drum cross

Fridigaire fwb9200es1 washer making rattling noise when spinning


Hello terilym - From what you have described it sounds like you possibly have foreign objects such as coins or safety pins in the tub or pump. I suggest unplugging the washer and carefully check the tub and to verify that the drum is also not damaged. If noise continues after washer is restarted, objects may be in the actual pump. Contact a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the unit.

My Whirlpool LHW0050PQ front load washer's tub is making a clicking noise when turning. It almost sounds as if there was a metal part stuck between the tub and the inside of the machine. Is ther


Have you lost any underwires in any bras? Would be my first check, as years ago I had a similar sound & it turned out to be part of a broken underwire from my bra, I manage with a bright torch & a pair of tweezers to locate the offending object by slowly turning the drum with my hand & the teasing the metal through one of the drum holes & retrieved it, I wasn't ever going to pluck my eyebrows with the tweezers again but hey, they're cheaper than washing machines!!

I hope this helps, let me know if I can help any further...

There seems to be something between the drum and the plastic outer casing of the drum. When the drum spins, there is a scraping noise and the object does seem to move inside the space. It doesn't hinder...


Most seals completely prevent clothing ie a tiny kids sock or other kids clothes. if it's bouncing about in side the exterior drum, something has broken and fallen inside there that shouldn't be.

Mine started with a wobbly spin, and ended up being a main spider gear that holds the wash drum inside the exterior drum perfectly with a watertight seal to a DD motor! A $240 dollar part shipped in saved the machine because the dryer has tons of miles left in it.

I used a video on Youtube to make the repair step by step including putting it back together again!

Cheers,

Zanussi fs 1555 w machine stopped during cycle now drum will not turn


Hello,
If you cannot turn the machine by hand then it may be an idea to see if the drive belt has snagged around the back end some how take a peep with a torch thru. top.if the belt looks ok it may be that something has got stuck inside the drum.Sometimes socks get stuck between the front of the drum casing and the drum shine a torch around the front by the door seal and see if you can see any objects jutting out if you can be careful and try with a vice grips to pull out if no joy it sounds as if it will have to be a tub out job.Sometimes objects like coins can be fished out thru the back where the heater sits but still a lot of work to get down there.Body of machine has to be split for access.

Good luck

I'm having a similar problem. Mine sounds like there is something behind the drum, like maybe a coin or loose nut? It screeches horribly.

Washer doesn't engage the drum


a ratcheting sound generally indicates some object (wire of sorts) tried going down drain but cant make it out but motor not turning drum over is something else, to check drain remove lower cover and open pump cleanout also feel the rubber hose from bottom of tub to pump to see if a object is in it. take hose off pump to clean out hose. if this is older duet check nut on rear pulley and tighten..
