LG WM2032HW Washer

My washer is 5 years old. Has worked great. It is now very loud on the spin cycles. Are there bearings that would need to be replaced. It is level, not rocking or anything.

You may have a bearing problem and it will need to be looked at by a qualified LG technician.  That is a big job and will require total disassembly of the tub and drum assembly to get to the bearings.  There are 2 of them.

When my washer is on the spin cycle it is making a very loud humming/grinding sound. This just started and the washer is 5 years old. What could the problem be?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. More then likely, it is your spin bearing or the drive motor. This is usually the case if the noises occur in spin cycle. The most likely cause is your bearings.

Spin basket weld gone causing loud knocking on spin cycle

front load washers are a great inovation into our modern society that being said they are a delicate balance of moving parts the main bearing plays a very important roll in keeping the machine balanced during the spin cycle I wouldn,t do one without the other . you're absolutly right too much $$ for a 4 year old machine call Electrolux plead your case and see if the will dicount the price of a new macine at least the value of the basket Good Luck

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle

if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Washer wont spin in the spin cycle.Washer was full of water and making a buzzing noise.If you have any suggestions what it might be that would be great. Kenmore 80 series washer about 11 years old.

sounds like the lower bearing on the trans mission shaft is seizing up on you. had a frigedair that did the same thing. i took it apart to replace, but could not buy separate. it only came with a purchase of a new transmission,which ran $175- 275. so i junked it out. washer was only 5 years old.

Loud sounds coming from the washer on spin cycle

That is a characteristic of bearings gone bad. You should look into replacing the bearings.

Amana dlw330 washer belt urned & broke again

Had the same problem on a machine I worked on. Changed the belt... was burnt and broken. Second time I replaced the belt, I ran it through all of the cycles and listened to it on SPIN cycle.. Although it's spinning.. it's making an extremely LOUD noise... It's the Spin bearing that is gone out. When a load is put in, and in spin cycle, the bearing is oveloaded..(being dry).. and putting extreme pressure on the motor and belt. When the drum reaches a point where the bearing just won't spin, the belt stops, and spins on the motor pulley, wearing it through.. (And smoking a great deal).. until it breaks.. again. I believe the top "Spin bearing" is about 75.00 or so.. and a BEAR to replace. Hope this helps

Noisy spin cycle

The spin bearing is the culprit. Water works down through the tub seal onto the bearing.

Noise during spin cycles

GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.

Loud noise when spinning

the only part that makes a loud noise is your bearings m8 other than that could be a bra wire stuck inbetween your drum and casing m8

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
