Possible that the grinding noise comes from the drum, irregular movement or broken paddles. You can try and attempt only if equipped with a fundamental understanding of the working . I shall give you some tips to this click 1..: Washing Machine
Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean
that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that
protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the
rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you
smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad
drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is
alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive
gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand,
indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught
between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch
problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch,
but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different
sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will
agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the
slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate
aggitator? Does it sound like it is? I would put a flat head in the door switch in activiate the cycle "as if it is running" put some weight on the aggitator, see if you can feel it moving while your weight is on it.
My washing machine fills up fine, but then when its time to start aggitating and spin's it makes like a metal on plastic grinding noise, We would like to try to fix it ourself but have no idea which part it is. Could you please HELP?
Rob, sounds like you need an agitator repair kit. Not a hard job, under the dispenser cap you have a set of ears, spring and plastic bearing. The kit is cheap, you can find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp Catriver...post back
