SOURCE: Drum filling with water when machine switched off

what you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them

SOURCE: Kenmore spin cycle thumping noises

I just went through the same issue with my Kenmore front loading washing machine. I assumed (and a Sears repairman also told me) that it is the bearings. After I took the drum assembly out, I saw the rear drum broken and the inner tub hitting the outer tub. I ordered the outer drum assembly and only when I took the inner drum assembly out I realized the the "Spider" attached to the inner drum (and spindle) was broken. Entire drum assembly cost $417 + shipping and it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new washer. I like the front loaders because they save water and good for the environment, but the US manufacturers have not yet perfected the technology like European manufacturers (or they don't want the machines to last too long just like cars). Anyway, I am looking into welding the spider tomorrow. If not will return the outer tub assembly and buy a top loading washer for $300!

Hi.
The plastic serrated type can be undone by sliding one half sideways. Use pliars as they can be quite sharp.

Standard clips can be used as a replacement - it's just cheaper in manufacture.
Try not to damage the hose - as they can be an expence you don't need.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Noise when draining

U will find the filter by removing the lower rear panel of the m/c.
Locate the large black hose at the right side, and remove clip securing hose. Get some thing ready to catch any water that will be in there, and remove hose.
There u will see the filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose,making sure that u get the hose on properly, test for leaks before u put the panel back on.
U will find this much easier to do if u tilt the m/c forward, and support it with something underneath.. Check inside the pump as well.
Plz rate my solution.

Thanks.

My 12 year old AEG OKO LAVAMAT is making a grinding sound when it fills. It's fine at all other times. I've tried cleaning out the filter, and running it empty.


This is usually caused by the recycling pump running empty whilst the washing is still soaking up the initial fill water. as the water begins to soak the clothes it then starts to pass through the drum into the pump and the whole thing quietens down. running empty will not work. to test this theory try opening the drawer very slightly and filling it manually with a hose before starting the machine, (ONLY TO THE NORMAL LEVEL) and see if the noise is still as bad.

Loud noise during rinse cycle


Hi


If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. Also check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)

Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.

Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.

Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.

Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Frig is driving me crazy---weird noise and no ice!!


That might be the fan. Making that noise, because fan stops when you open the freezer. The ice maker might be a totally diffrent problem. The solenoid may not be opening to let the water in, which is usually cause by a bad solenoid.

Washer filled with water and then does nothing but make a clicking noise


If it's not spinning, the transmission is bad. If it's just not emptying the water, the pump is clogged or bad.

Unless you can replace the transmission yourself, it would be a better bargain to buy a new washer.
