Question about Washing Machines
Recently there is a grinding sound when machine is washing a full load. I can stop the sound by reaching in and pulling on the inside tub. Is there a brake that stops the drum from turning that needs to be tightened? If so how would this be done?
This could be partly the clutch/break assy. You need to be able to run this with the lid open in the spin position. Activte the lid switch with a pencil or something. Reach in and hold the spin basket and then turn the washer on in spin. Hold this basket for 1-2 minutes then release it and let it reach full speed then stop the washer by turning the timer off or releasing the lid switch. See if the hard breaking/noise is better. Keep doing this untill it comes to a smooth stop and the noise is gone at the stop. Not sure this will cure the noise in the spin starting up problem or not, but start here. the clutch gets rust on the pads and this burnishes the break pads, removing this rust that makes it grab.
