Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVM9959K Top Load Washer

Open Question

Suddenly, started making scary hammering noise during wash and rinse cycle however, not all the time but only when it sounds like it's changing gear or breaking. Otherwise, the completes the cycle without any error code. it sounds like two metal are hitting or something striking hard. it appears to be coming from the tub assemble. Looked under the tub and around, found nothing loose or cracked metal parts. I already have removed the dome, outer wash plate. Scared of removing universal joint assy. Is it ok to remove the universal joint assy. to look for any cracked or loose parts or should it be done by a professional? Please advise.

How old is this product? I have a friend who is an authorized whirlpool servicer, and they won't even work on them. Supposedly they are a bear to take apart, and have a very bad tendancy to flood. Check into it, but he tells me there is a class action lawsuit against whirlpool for these. This is 3rd hand information, so you will need to verify if this is true or not.

Makes a squealing noise during rinse cycle


It could be water pressure/flow through a valve, try reducing the flow at the stop cock on the wall and see if the sound changes.

NOISE AT RINSE CYCLE START


If sounds like a bumping in the water hoses, it could be water hammer from the pipes in your house not having a volume chamber to absorb the hammering when the water cuts on and off during the rinse cycle.

Washing machine knocks and dims lights only during rinse cycle


Possible that the bearings are a suspect, if the machine seems to wobble around. Also if the load is high, does the noise go higher, if so check the suspension, check the mounting and the counter weights.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.
