Check that the air inlet filter is intact and tight, it cuts out a lot of the compressor noise. If that is in order, and you have a knocking noise, check the oil, if that is low, it is unfortunately already too late, the rod bearing is probably destroyed.

My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.

Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

I have yz250 2004, white smoke coming out the exhaust,, hard to kickstart,, piston makes some loud rattle noise,,, what would be the cause? Thanks

If you have a rad on that unit you have a warped head and the water is leaking into the piston.... stop using immediately as this problem will lead to major engine problem as water does not compress and will either crack the head or blow the Rings.. if no rad then check to see if there is water in the gas.... if neither then it is probably oil burning but that smoke should be blueish...

I can not release the main component in my Saesco de luxe. Here a loud clicking noise when machine is turned on.

The loud clicking noise is a broken brew drive. This usually happens when you use the pre-ground button but put more than the level scoop into the brew unit. The brew unit can't compress the coffee and jams the brew unit which breaks the drive gears. Drive gears have to be replaced. I have some drive units complete.

1995 chevy lumina makes terible loud noise like rods knocking when started. It has oil and water in it. what could be the problem?

it could still be a rod even if its full of oil. carbon build up inside the engine can cause a knocking sound but its probably a rod. does it go away after it starts?? if it only does it while starting, it could be leaking water in a cylinder after you cut it off and the next time you're cranking it, its trying to compress the water

My Xbox is making a loud ticking noise and won't do any thing.

The ticking is most likely your lens going back n fourth trying to read the game...but I can not be sure unless I actually heard it.

There are only a few moving parts inside of the console, cd drive, hard drive and the fan.

I would try cleaning your lens with either a compress can of air or by using a cheap cd cleaner (cd with brushes on it).

The refrigerator works but makes a loud thumping noise every so often

The compress cycles periodically hence the every so often. Chances are one of the freon tubing pipes have come loose from a mount and needs to be reattched. Simple enough but beware of the hot freon lines. Happy hunting!

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning

Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.
