Noise during wash and rinse cycles

My machine seems to be washing ok but has developed a constant deep groan during the washing and rinse cycles - the best description I can give is it sounds like an idling diesel engine. The sound doesnt change whether the drum is moving or stationary, and is not there during draining or spinning. I have also noticed that the jets which used to spray water on to the clothes during washing are no longer working and wondered whether this may be related?

Got a response from another site - the noise was due to the recirculation pump (situated low down at the back on the other side from the drain hose) which was working, but clogged with a nasty grey 'porridge' of limescale and powder residue in the pipes either side of it. Dismantled, cleaned out pipes and ran a wash cycle to clear any remaining crud out. Seems ok now and wash jet working, noise gone.

How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?


Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

Why washing machine squeaks when in wash cycle


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided you are hearing a squeaking noise during the wash rinse cycle on your Frigidaire washer. You could be hearing the noise from your motor during that operation, this is normal. Additionally, if you feel that this is noise an issue I would contact a professional to come out and diagnose your appliance properly. -Matt

Washing machine knocks and dims lights only during rinse cycle


Possible that the bearings are a suspect, if the machine seems to wobble around. Also if the load is high, does the noise go higher, if so check the suspension, check the mounting and the counter weights.

Limited agitation during wash cycle Load Sense OK


Possible that the program selected is an easy wash as this is meant for daily wash , less soiled clothes.
If however the same situation is present in all the cycles then the capacitor to the motor must be checked as it can reduce the speed of the motor.
Also check the belt , check for friction on the drum spindle and the motor.

You are better off swapping the valves over in the machine until you can buy a replacement valve. I've done this for a month or so until I replaced the valve. Works as long as you only use a cold wash and your cold water is not too cold as to make the machine want to add some hot. If it does this then simply press start to clear the fault.
