Washer jumps and vibrates and makes extreme noise


Is this a new machine that you purchased and installed yourself? Or is this a machine that has worked properly and is now displaying this problem? If new, it sounds as though you may have not removed the shipping bolts that secure the drum. This would prevent the drum's suspension system from being able to absorb vibration during the spin cycle and cause the vibration to transmit to the machine's outer shell. If the machine is older, then the drum suspension system itself may need repairs.

Kenmore 970C45042 10 washer makes tremendous noise.


Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

LG WM3987HW Washer Spining very wild


I've just uploaded a service manual.

relevant info pasted below: --

Regulate a specific spin speed that generates excessive vibration and noise as follows:
1) Put an unbalance part (rubber) inside of the drum.
(this is a special weight that service people use. It clips into the drum. If you don't have it, throw in about 4 to 6lbs of damp laundry.)

2) Start the QC test mode (Refer to section 7-2).
7-2 says turn the washer off, then press 'spin speed' and 'soil level' at the exact same time. Then, while holding both buttons, press power to start "QC test mode"

3) Press Delay Wash button, then ' tst ' is displayed on lcd
4) Press the Spin Speed button repeatedly to select Extra High.
5) Press the Quick Cycle button, the spin speed is displayed.
6) Press the Start/Pause button.
7) Press the Beeper button repeatedly to set spin speed (600, 800, 1000, 1200 rpm) and check if there is vibration
and noise.
8) If there is no vibration and noise, increase the spin speed by pressing Beeper button.
9) If there is vibration and noise, rotate the Cycle selector knob clockwise to reduce the Spin Speed (reduce by 50
and 100 rpm). In case of 600 rpm, it can not reduce the spin speed.
10) If vibration and noise are reduced, press the Quick Cycle button to store (2 beep sounds).
* If you want to return to factory default spin speed setting, repeat above steps except step 9)

Wash machine model mav 7600, started making tremendous noise, first in spin cycle only and then in wash cycle also. After running a few loads with the noise the machine just stoped running....


This sounds like collapsed/broken drum bearings. Check for movement between inner and outer drum. Also rotating the drum by hand will be hard (or immpossible), and noisy. It could be the motor and belt, but most times it is bearings.

Clothes washer vibration during spin cycles


the vibration and noise is most likely from the drum bearings wearing out to test the bearings try this out,,,
open the door, hold the top of the drum and lift it up, if it has any free lift in it the bearings are going, now spin the drum by hand and you should here the rumble off the bearings

Loud screeching noise when spin cycle is on


Good morning! Possibly the noise was due to improper placement of load into the spinner which should be within its capacity load. best regards.

Vibration during spin cycle


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
