Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

02 alero olds, makes rattling or buzzing sound when i accelerate. What could this be. sound seems to come from driver side undercarriage


Noises such as what you describe can be associated with wheel bearing, drive shaft or brakes.

The rattling noise could be a loose brake-backing plate and the buzzing noise caused by it touching a spinning brake rotor.

However, it could also be a worn drive shaft/constant velocity joint, which is the usual culprit.

The only real course of action you have is to give a mobile mechanic a call or take the car to a workshop and ask them to investigate -it will take just a matter of minutes.

A rattle sound when it is running. Also, spinning the tub in off mode manually: a slight spin will produce a sound like a pully or wheel that continues to run after the tub stops


You must have a maytag/crosley/admiral/monkey wards type dryer. They all are notorious for making that sound. That is a worn out blower wheel. 53-0106
Look close at the photo, see the flat? Yours is worn out and letting the blower flop all around. It will take twice as long to dry the clothes and possibly blow the fuse if you continue to allow this. The air flow is greatly reduced and makes for an overheating on top of the dryer and can melt or warp the filter. I have some repair photos HERE

Water leaking and loud noise and rattling on final spin cycle


Turn the drum by hand and if you hear any noises it is the rear bearing. If there is no noise then remove the front bottom panel and take out the coin trap on the pump and check those hoses.

Loud rattling noise, but dries ok


The drum of a dryer is supported b the front and back of the unit, spins on a felt gasket. Noise is coming from rollers or their is something stuck between drum and the felts. The pulley is a piece of springy metal with a plastic wheel on it, could also be worn. If you take off front of dryer, drum will come loose, check to see if something is stuck. Common for loose change to get jambed in felts. Also spin rollers and pulley to see if need to be replaced. I still think something is caught in felt.

Noise in the spin mode on a Amana LWA50AW top load washer


Based on your description, it sounds as if your outer spin bearing is faulty. See link below for an illustration of the bearing. Special tools are required to replace this item.

Vibrates when shound turned up, tried different sound modes, it is the bass that is a problem deep voices etc


Rattling speakers on a LG TV is fixed by placing a small square rubber between the speakers and the chassis.

Of course the speakers will need to be replaced too

Motor makes loud rattling noise during rinse cycle


could be the coupler and the only way to truely check it is to take the pump, then the motor off. But it seems strange to me that you say it works fine. Is it spinning? usually when the coupler breaks it sounds horrible and usually will not spin but it will drain.I would check the coupler again.

Hello, could be a possible bad pump. I would lean the washer back so you can see the belt. take the belt off and spin all of the pulleys. the pump pulley has a s leave that sometimes makes a grinding noise.

  I have found tubing rattling against plastic tray on right side in back.  Also found this tray rattling against frame.  You can take back off unit and llisten for noise.   Watch out for spinning condensor fan blade.  Very sharp,  believe me!!  Try pressing on tubing.
