My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.


Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

Sounds like it could possibly be the transmission. You may want to have a technician come out to check it. (I know the whole point of fixya is so you don't need a tech but a problem like this is hard to diagnose without a video with sound or being at your place) sorry I couldn't help more.

I have an LG washing machine Model WM1814CW. It makes a loud clanking sound in the spin cycle and the back of the drum has a thick black greasy substance on it & has leaked onto the floor. What could...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like it is your spin bearings. It would explain the grease and the noise also. The spin bearings have to do with the spinning of the washer. Usually, if there are loud noises associated with the washer, it is either the motor drive or the spin bearing.

Loud clunking sound during the spin cycle, washer is balanced and on 2nd floor


If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise islouder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

My washing machine started to make a loud grinding noise and does not rotate to wash nor to spin. after moving the machine i found some plastic shavings under it.


Sounds like the bearings for the drum have or are on the way out. The belt has probably broke or come off.
Depending on the age, cost of new and personal feelings it can be repaired but normally it isn't cost effective, unless the machine cost £500+ ($800+)
