What is causing my Kenmore top washer to make a grinding noise before the rinse cycle?


Have you replaced the clutch or spin tube? There is a brake actuator that comes with the clutch kit and if this is broken it can make a very loud grinding or clacking sound.

Grinding noise in spin cycle


It sounds like the drain pump needs replacing, its bearings have failed or there is something from the wash jammed in it. But before you buy a new one, get the machine checked by an expert in case lots of parts are damaged.

Asko WCAM1812 makes noise when draining


I recently had this same problem. There is a spinning wheel inside the pump that has likely detached from the motor. Upon removing the back of the unit, you will see a water pump on the bottom left of the unit. There are three screws attaching the pump to the rest of the assembly, remove the screws and detach the motor, out should pop out a red spinning wheel. I Gorilla glued mine back on, and it sounds better than before the grinding noise.

Machine makes a mild grinding sound and won't spin in the spin cycle. What could it be?


Hello,

Welcome to Fixya.

Depending on whether it is a frontload or top load machine has a lot to do with my answer, but for the sake of guessing I`d say check your drain pump.

Both top or frontload machines rely on the unit draining to allow them to spin properly. The "mild grinding" sound may be something in the pump preventing it from draining or the pump impeller itself is grinding.

If you`re not sure how, please specify if it is a frontload or topload and the make and model number and I should be able to help you from there.

Good luck.

Our maytag proforma machine was making a loud noise during washing cycle. water wasn't draining - we think it may be the water pump?


Yes, it sounds like you need to check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port of the pump. Check for anything clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) Also check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and make sure the impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/damaged or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, then the pump is bad. Hopefully it is just a clogged pump. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin


It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.

Kenmore Elite King Size Top Load Washer


If your washer fills, agitates, drains, but will not spin, the likely cause is the gear case (transmission). A new gear case can run about $200 just for the part. With labor, this could be a bit expensive to repair. I hope this helps you some.
