ANy noise heard must be identifed to be coming from a source and you are the first person present to tell us about the sound. Once we are sure the source of noise the fault can be discussed about. The sound from rear can be from the compressor, can be internal or external mounting vibrations, noise of the fridge vibrating,noise of the fan working or grinding on frost.

There should be no moving parts on the back. Remove the lower panel and lay down with a flashlight. The compressor may be located toward the rear, on the bottom. It looks like a cylinder with piping coming off it, and reaching to what looks like a mini car radiator. This is the coil.
Only moving parts are a fan for the coil and the compressor. See anything out of the ordinary?
Replacing a fan is easy. A failed compressor may be the kiss of death. If the noise is coming from the compressor/motor, call a local technician and ask how much to change it out. Warrantee?

good luck Spencer

My son has a knocking sound coming from the rear left when turning sharp comers,wondering what possible causes this could be,ie suspension,strut etc..thanks.


Ruling out loose lug nuts, it could be the spindle / hub bearings. Raise the tire up off the ground and wiggle it. If there is play (any) or it makes a grinding noise when you spin it, its the hub bearings. You will have to replace the hub assembly.

The mixer makes noise at stir speed. If I press down on the black contact plate at the rear of the mixer, the grinding goes away. I am not sure if it is the rear motor bearing or something else.


Hi,motor bearing usually worn out if you dont put grease on it.try also to check screws it might loosen up.Bearing might as well not contacted with the upper surface does it makes noise.Screw and bolts might as well loosen .Hope this helps.

I have alot of grinding out of the rearend


Sounds like bearing or bearing are gone out. Jack up vehicle, check fluid level. Grab one wheel and spin it, listening for noise from wheel bearing area and the rear end. If no noise, spin other wheel listening for noise from that wheels bearing.

If it's a heavy grinding you are hearing, it's rear end.

My miele premier 300 is making more noise than usual during the fast spin/rinse parts of the cycle. It is about 5 years old. is it the bearings?


that would depend on where the noise is coming from if you remove the top cover and diagnose that the noise is coming more along the area of the center back wall then that would be the bearing although when a motor starts to go you could also have motor noise which would be towards the bottom of the unit if the noise is starting mainly during the spin option and sounds like a grinding noise this could also be a bearing as well.three screws located in the rear of the machine that hold down the top panel remove these three and slide the top panel towards the rear. This will allow you to see where your noise is coming from if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
p.s if you can turn the drum by hand and still hear a grinding or a type of scrapeing noise alot of the time it is a bearing issue but you would need to inspect the unit further to make sure that it is please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks

My GE electric dreyer, DHDSR46EGWW, is making squeaking noise and a grinding noise. My husband took is apart last night and put back together. When he started it the noises came back and he said it...


It could be the rear bearing or if not it have your honey take it apart again and inspect the rear rollers, if they turn freely then inspect the front bearing assy it is on the the door and if it looks worn down then it is allowing excessive pressure on the rest of the unit .

Grinding from rear shaft going into motor


There are two bearings in the assembly. The front is a needle bearing and the back is a ball bearing. One of the two (or both) are probably bad. I don't understand why the brakes would affect the bearing noise. Are you certain the brake pads are not grinding on the rotor?
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

When turning, loud grinding noise.


Can be a tensioner pulley with bad bearings or the rear drum bearing is shot. When the rear drum bearing goes bad, the drum drops slightly and starts rubbing and making all sorts of terrible noises. I would not run it like this as the pivot on the rear of the drum that rides in the bearing could be cutting into the support. Not a good thing.

Good Luck and hope this helps.
