Washing machine making whining noise during spin only

I have an Estate washing machine that's making loud whining/humming noise during the spin cycle only. The machine works fine except for the noise. What should I check for? Could be bearing. Thanks.

    We have hard water in our area so the repair technician suggested to run an empty load with some vinegar to remove the calcium around the bearings, and it actually worked till this day (3 years later).



    Thanks a lot for your help

Yes, bearing, most definitely. It is a cheap part but difficult to replace.

    If the bearing is damaged a lot you should be able to feel that while manually moving the empty drum. It becomes slightly loose and allows drum to be moved axially (sort of in and out) and/or sideways (left-right, up-down). Since you hear whining it means that seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually.

My front load washing machine is making a bad whining noise and some of the clothes have muck on them


sounds like the spin bearing is bad. that would explain loud noise. grease from the bearing failure is probably mixing with the water during the cycle. if the unit is over 5 years old, probably not worth repairing, financially speaking.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

When in spin cycle machine makes a very loud whining noise


Most common cause for your whining noise is because the seals have failed/worn and allowed water into the bearings..Rusty ball bearings are not smooth...Hence the noise.....Probably needs bearing/seal and probably shaft replacement....Big job..Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess
