Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Makes a noise when in the spin cycle. Almost like coins in the barrel only there are no coins in the barrel. Or sounds like it is trying to change gears and grinds.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described, sounds like a worn tub bearing unfortunately.

To check it, remove the agitator assembly inside the tub, once it's off. take the tub assembly and move it side to side to inspect for "play" in the bearing. This will explain the bad sounds and the grinding...I bet it doesn't spin the items out very well either due to too much vibration sensed to maximize spin.

Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you move forward from here. I can provide more detail with pictures if necessary.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

In spin cycle machine makes squeaky noise.


Your bearings could be going out, causing excess stress on the belt. Take the back off of the washer and check the belt tension. If there IS something stuck back there, you'll be able to see it.

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.

There are two places a coin could be that will cause a noise. Either in the basket under the nutator or in the pump. If you hear the noise after the basket stops from the spin, look under the nutator, if you hear it during the cycle, check the pump. If you only hear the noise during the agitation, not the spin cycle, you may have a u-joint going out.
