Why does my washer make extremely loud noise on spin and looks like the drum has fallen down?


It sounds as if something mechanically serious happened. Call a repairman and get a diagnosis. It may be a simple repair, but it is more likely to be a difficult and costly one. You have to decide.

I'm getting a "UL" (Unbalanced Load) code all the time, it is level and always happens with 11 minutes left in the cycle. What is the problem? Is the tub bearings out? Why is grease leaking?


This definitely sounds like a new bearing is required. It is not unusual to see grease leaking of the bearing has been damaged or is worn out. If it is banging, making loud noises or shaking the machine violently then the bearing is usually the problem

Washing Machine making a loud whirring noise when water is filling and when the machine is spinning out


Check the motor bearings If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer. Check for Obstructions Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket. Check for Grease Spatter A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing. Check the Drum for Irregularities Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.

My Asko font loader is 9 years old. just lately it has been making a high pitch squeaking type of noise each time the machine is turning during the washing cycle. It did this in the first six months of...


Hello, as far as your unit makeing a high pitched squeaking noise you would have to remove the top panel of the machine by unscrewing the 2-3 screws along the back upper part of the machine. You would then slide the panel towards the rear of the machine and then remove the panel from the machine. After you did this you would then run the machine and try to distinguish if the noise was being made from the main bearing in the unit which holds the inner and outter tub together. Or if the noise were coming from the motor in the unit. Most of the time when someone does describe a high pitched noise that is described like a jet taking off when the unit goes into the spin cycle this would tend to point towards a main bearing issue with the unit. To replace a main bearing in a washer is a very costly and long proces if done by a technician and most do decide not to fix the unit due to this. On the other hand if it were a motor noise that you were hearing or a pulley noise which on some is located on the back of the tub these are much less costly repairs as well as less time consuming. If you have any other questions message me back. I await your reply
Thank you,
Rick

When my washer was on the spin cycle it was making a very loud high squeaking/buzzing noise, could this be the belt and how do i fix the problem? Thanks Crystil


The belt would probably squeak in the agitate direction also. I suspect a tub or clutch bearing is going out. If you find signs under the washer that it's been leaking, the tub bearing needs to be changed. It's a major disassembly job. The clutch bearing may be easier.

Hi
to chek what is wrong follow the bellow instruction....

Intermittent Squeaking


You know how when the pads on your car get worn they start that noise? Well the bearing that holds the tub has a metal bracket. When that plastic wears down it begins to makes those noises. If left alone the metal bracket will eventually cuut into that drum bearing like a guillotine. I have pictures. Have the women and small babys leave the room: Click (HERE)

My front load stackable dryer is making very load squeaking noises when it starts up for about 15 minutes


The rear bearing for the drum needs to be greased. If you don't grease it and ignore it, eventually the dryer will stop working because you will be overloading the motor, and the motor will start drawing additional current that it will trip the breaker. Greasing the rear bearing is a 15 minute job. You need to purchase high tempo grease. Frigidaire sellsthe high trmp grease that is required.
