Why does my washer making a VERY loud noise while spinning. So loud you could hardly stay in same room. Ususally its pretty quiet. Then I heard something that sounded like a gear (?) being stripped or

2 possible things. the spinner drum bearings are giving up. This can show as a rusty water dribble under the machine.
The motor bearings are giving up.
Both of which require a good DIYer or an appliance engineer.

PTO clutch making a loud clicking noise.

I really need some more info from you...but here are a few things you should check? Since it clicks with or without the has to be an electrical issue! Check the switch, look for broken wiring, or loose connections. Another thing it might cause this is the battery or the charging system! If there is not enough voltage to hold the clutch engaged or what it is getting is shorting out then that would be your culprit! I hope this helps! "Be Easy!" Neighborsboy

My washer is 4 years old and the last couple of times I used it, it made a very loud noise when it was in the spin cycle and now it is more quiet but it is not spinning all the water out.


Welcome to FixYa.

Have you checked the pump to insure nothing is in there causing the noise, or do you believe it is coming from the main wash basket ?

I would rule out anything being in the pump first before declaring the main bearings or motor brushes being worn which can sound pretty loud, but usually just in the spin cycle.

I could possibly assist in directing you "how to" if I had a make and model number, or you can refer to your owners manual and that should have instructions on maintaining and cleaning the pump.

Let me know what you find out.

good luck

5.5 Briggs & Stratton push mower running too loud

It could be the govenor spring. Get the model number, type and code and take it to a small engine parts store and get a new one. A new spring will slow down the rpm's and it wont be that loud. Make sure you remember how the spring was hooked up.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks \

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle

if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer

Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps
