    I have an asko W6021 and it grinds occasionally when full or empty(on up to second or third load). I have checked for nails/coins etc in wash - nothing. I have put through an empty wash with vinegar in case it was build up from soap powders - nothing.

    I had someone tell me it is rubber seals not lubricated on both sides when built so will do it when seals are dry. To fix $30 seal $200 install. Don't want to destroy machine if thats not it and don't want to pay $230 upwards to fix it as machine is only 3 years old.

    The agitator spins slower and emits a loud grinding noise ( like stripped gears).

SOURCE: loud noise during spin cycle

this is my experience repairing the maytag washer Atlantis mav series 9750 aww, I had to replace the spin bearing since it was making a jet engine noise when it was spinning out the water. its not an easy job for my 1st time taking this machine apart, you literally take it all apart to get to this bearing, but now I can show how to do it with pictures making it easier for you to do it. even if you have to replace something other than the spin bearing, this how to tutorial will show you how to get to most of the parts in this machine

Counter weight on front load machine is crumbling to pieces and machine makes loud noises during spin cycle


Cindy, you might want to check the gears in your machine. I had a similar problem and it turned out that the gears are made of a plastic/nylon material and they deteriorate pretty easy, making the washer make loud noises. Took the guy who fixed mine about 20 minutes and then it was nice and quiet again. Good luck.

Washing machine makes a loud whining noise when in high speed spin that it has not made before. Noise seems to come from the soap inlet tube.


usually when a front load washer starts making noise in the spin cycle it's not good,most of the time it's from the owner using to much detergent,it eats the spider gear and then it's time for a new washer,the gear costs around 500 bucks,next it will start to bang around and get real loud,i've seen the rubber boot get ripped off because it bangs all around,if you're using alot of detergent most likely this is the start of your problem,when you read the back of the bottle the measurements are for a top load washer not a front load so you better check that,also you could have a broken shock,also you can pull the middle of the pump out and check to see if there are any filings in there,i've seen that before.put it on high spin and listen to it,if it sounds like a knocking sound don't waste your money and call someone in,change out the washer and watch the cd that comes with it and use less detergent,i hope this isn't your problem but when the noise comes from the spin cycle it's usually the spider gear.

Machine making a very loud noise when it spins


Sounds like the bearings are broken and it may need a major repair. You may need to consider to buy a new washer machine.

Kenmore 90 series with speed selector switch set to heavy duty cycle it works fine any other setting , regular , hand wash setting the agitator makes a loud clicking sound as it agitates


sounds like a transmition problem. does the noise happen when it goes into spin on the other settings? If no noise in the spin cycle on the other setting, then it sounds like a the gears in the transmition internally when bad for the agitation.

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.

Loud noise while agitating in wash cycle


If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.

Will not agitate or spin,makes loud noise during those cycles


Sounds like coupling gears between transmission and motor... they did away with the belt and went direct drive with coupling gears. It can pump water out but nothing else. water pump is mounted to front of motor is why it will pump water out.
