When I engage the mower blades it makes a nasty noise, like a bad bearing. I checked the brakes, belts, etc and all is well. Any thoughts?


hi there mrswp211

check out the pulleys from the pto to the deck for noise - if rumbly / noisy replace them , if not
remove pto to deck belt ( make note of belt routing 1st ) then rotate blades and spindles by hand give a good spin you should hear if noisy , grab blades and try to move them fore/ aft to see have movement if they do and they are not smooth and quite spindle bearings are the problem

generally if unit is noisy only when deck engaged bearings will cause this

but make sure pulleys on the top of eack spindle good to and everything is tight
a badly slipping vee belt will make a squeeling noise and somtimes will make the unit shudder

you will have to remove deck to replace bearing(s) , from experience replace mandrell/ spindle assys do both at same time because if one has gone the other wont be far behind - both do same milage and work and quite often if replace bearings only they dont go back in tight .

cheers hope it helps

Kenmore oasis washer noisy when spinning


Hi, your probably right about the bearing its usually hard to tell untill they have compltely gone have you tried turning the drum by hand to see if it turns smoothly if it does then it could be the motor thats noisy both can be replaced but the drum bearing is a nighmare trust me you need pullers and its hard work.
So try turning the drum by hand and see if you can feel any roughness or catching this would tell you if the drum bearing has gone.
Let me know the outcome ok

Zanussi Aquacycle 1050. My washing machine seemed to stop spinnin


Locate the filter at the botton front right of washer, behind a drop down cover.
Unscrew anti- clockwise to remove and clean.
If still no go, then you need to check the brushes in the motor.
Hope this helps.

When my zanussi aquacycle 1200xc is on the fast spin cycle the spinning drum seems to be getting noisier of late.


Probably the main bearings are going, spin the drum by hand, there should be little or no noise at all, if it feels rough, or noisy, then bearings are failing.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

No spin & drum is very noisy during cycle ,like a jet engine


Sounds like the drum bearings have gone and the belts come off.
Im afraid this is an expensive repair and not a diy job.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

My zanussi aquacycle 1100 is making a very heavy clonking noise on spin cycle.Have you any suggestions? Thanks Craig


Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone.
Turn the drum by hand and if it feels rough or noisy , the bearings have gone.
There should be little or no noise when you turn the drum by hand.
It is quite an involved repair , as it entails a complete strip down.
Plz rate my comments.

Door


it probabbly broke somewhere.
if it is possible to take the handle out, I would investigate the problem further.
not worth fixing the handle, you may have to get a replacement.
