Grinding noise when fan spins fast

There is a grinding noise when the fan spins quickly. I'm presuming its when the fan runs fast but it could just be random. It will be there when I turn my laptop and take about 5 - 20 minutes to go.
I'm hoping it is the fan as opposed to the hard drive due to where the sound is coming from.
Would you be able to where I could find a replacement fan?

Try cleaning out the fans before going to the bother of replacing it. There maybe some debris stuck in it causing the strange noise. A can of compressed air often removes most of the dust and debris but on occassion it is necessary to open the case and manually clean the fan.

Generally if its grinding and clicking noises it will be the hard drive the fans will cause more a whirr than a grind

Very loud when fan is running


This is likely caused by a faulty blower motor bearings, or the fan has something in it or it could possibly have broken. Shut down power to unit, remove cover and inspect the fan shaft, blades, and spin it. it should freely spin. If it hangs up you likely have a bad blower motor.

When in spin cycle sounds like a large bolt is spinning around washer shakes spin cycle really fast scrapeing noise


The scraping noise is the grinding noise from the worn out ball bearings. Replace them. You can open the back cover by removing the screws. To fix new bearings remove the drum wheel & then the bearings. It is purely a mechanical job.

Seems like the blower motor is making a lot of grinding noise and the fan is not spinning quickly. also the fan continues to spin when the door is open.


the blower wheel has come loose from it's base, this happens a lot with ovens where aluminium foil is used, as the Moffat oven was designed to be the ultimate pastry oven, free flow air system was designed into it, I would start with the blower wheel as it is usually the cheaper of the 2 to buy.

Maytag neptune tl makes grinding sound and stops at 33 minutes in normal mode and at 24 minutes in quick wash mode



Hello djlampl,

With the lowest spin cycle setting I enter spin cycle in Quick Wash around the 21 minute mark. But first question is do you hear the grinding noise with the tumblers rotating during the wash/agitate cycle?

If you start a spin only cycle do you hear the grinding noise?

Does the washer error code out with an error code to the display? Codes such as dC, uC, Lr?, I assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW is that correct?

Any additional info will help in troubleshooting…..Rich

Assuming the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A here are some handy links;

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.

Grinding noise


In my humble opinion, a dryer making a grinding noise is worth repairing. Possible Problems:

Worn Drum Rollers (Very Likely): More of a thumping / grinding sound. Replacing drum roller supports is considered to be a routine "normal ware & tear" repair with parts costing about $15 - $20 or so. Its' kinda like a tune-up for a vehicle. The rollers can be located in a couple places, but are typically located on the inside rear of the drum; upon dis-assembling the dryer.

Broken/Loose Blower Fan Wheel (Likely): The blower wheel can become loose or brake off the motor shaft and can make a "rumbling / grinding sound and can run about $15 - $25 for the part. The degree is difficulty when repairing a little high, but is commonly performed.

* Note: Removing and threading the blower wheel is reverse to prevent the fan blower from natually spinning/coming-off "Righty loosey, lefty tighty"
