    From the service manual.....
    ABNORMAL SOUND
    Is the motor bolt loosened?......Secure the bolt.
    Is there friction noise coming from the motor?........Replace the STATOR ASSEMBLY or ROTOR ASSEMBLY.

    here is a link for your parts diagram....Copy and paste into your browser

    you will need to take off the back cover then run a spin cycle....see if you can locate where the noise is coming from.My guess it is coming from parts k122 and k125 bearings.This is how they sound when they go....then later on the noise may sound like a helicopter taking off.
    Note the drawing and the parts mentioned above. With the cover off and the spin cycle running you should be able to determine where the sound is coming from.
    Please post results.

My LG Front Load washing machine is making a grinding noise on spin cycle I believe it is coming from the motor


Hello. The noise you are hearing on spin is a failed basket support bearing. Depending on the model, you are looking at a cost of a professional to repair it of around $400+. If you do it yourself, around $200. This is a common failure on LG washers.

Loud grinding clicking noise during the drain cycle


It sounds like your drain pump has failed or has something stuck in it. You didn't specify a make and model so all I can say is that there are several good videos on YouTube about this problem because it's fairly common. Good luck!

I have a John Deere LA145 lawn tractor. When I engage the mower, a loud noise (grinding) comes from the mower. What could be the problem? The tractor is 2 yrs old.


check and make sure all of your drive pulleys are spinning freely a bearing may be bad in one of the pulleys cause it grind metal on metal but the most common problem is a bent or warped mowing blade cause it wobble and shake and contact the underside of the deck.

GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer My washer is 2 yrs old and has started to make a loud metalic banging noise during the wash cycle. It does not during the spin cycle. Doesn't seem to matter whether...


Hi!!
The "Metallic banging/clicking" sound you hear is the Shifter mechanism engaging or disengaging.
The drive system will engage at the start of the Agitate Cycle and disengage when the Agitate Cycle is complete. This occurs multiple times during the wash. GE claims this is a normal sound and should not be concerned about it. Check page 10 of your Operating Manual, if you do not have a manual, click on this link to download one http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90323.PDF

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

FRIGIDARE FRONT LOAD WASHER,2+YRS OLD ON FINAL HIGH SPEED SPIN MACHINE MAKES LOUD VIBRATION NOISE AND FIND NEED TO SHUT DOWN DUE TO FRANTIC VIBRATION AND NOISE.


It is possible the bearings on the motor that spins the canister could be going bad especially at the high speed. This could also be from clothes getting unbalanced in the final spin cycle. Hope this helps. This could still possibly under warranty!

Spin cycle not working properly


On the transmission there are two shift arms. One shift arm controls the agitator and the other shifts to spin the cloths. If the washer has been making a "clicking" sound when it trys to spin, the solenoid that shifts the spin shift arm is not catching and the drum will not spin. The other possibility is the spin clutch is slipping and make a "grinding/ratcheting" sound. Neither, unfortunately are inexpensive to fix.
If you can describe the sound and when it occurs, I might be able to get closer.
Let me know.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle


This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK
