Making a grinding sound

After I push start, the door locks but there is not the usual filling with water sound. Instead it sounds like a grinding like sound. I tried to unplug and reset but that did nothing. Please help!

    Third repair for grinding noise...Remove top panel. Look to left rear..rotating arm that gets stuck. Give it a nudge, but do expect this to continue...part on order (back order) My machine is only two months old, but not used much because we went on vacation right after buying. Disappointed in this machine.

    I HAD this same problem. Turns out there was part of a pen stuck in the pump. The technician left. Next load, same sound. Once the other part of the pen was removed from the pump, no more problem.

I had the same problem. Turns out there was part of a pen stuck in the pump. First load after the technician left, same problem. Once they remove the rest of the pen still in the pump, problem no longer exists.

My 12 year old AEG OKO LAVAMAT is making a grinding sound when it fills. It's fine at all other times. I've tried cleaning out the filter, and running it empty.


This is usually caused by the recycling pump running empty whilst the washing is still soaking up the initial fill water. as the water begins to soak the clothes it then starts to pass through the drum into the pump and the whole thing quietens down. running empty will not work. to test this theory try opening the drawer very slightly and filling it manually with a hose before starting the machine, (ONLY TO THE NORMAL LEVEL) and see if the noise is still as bad.

Washer is making a grinding sound when draining water.


hi, this grinding sound is coming from the pump. the pump device seems to have a broken impeller that is located inside the pump. You will not be able to replace this internal part. This device is fixed and you will have to replace the entire pump assembly.

This will happen if some debris or coins make it threw the pump housing. these debris will settle in the pump housing near the impeller and it will grind while in operation or, draining procedure. the solid debris will eventually damage the impeller and break it off the drive bolt. this will all happen in time but, it usually starts with the minor grinding sound.
