Washing machine arching sound?


I have a Bosch that is making this arching sound when the clothes are washing. Does anyone know what this sound is?
It kind of sounds like springs being compressed again and again. The sound is driving me crazy! How do I fix it?

    I have the same problem, sounds like twisting a spring against metal but the machine only makes this sound at slow speeds.

It sounds like your bearings for the drum are on their way out. Call out a competant repairman. Good luck.

Hi, It sounds like you have the two water pipes fitting on the wrong connectors on the back of the machine.

IE: The hot water pipe (RED connector) on the cold water inlet on the back of the machine (BLUE connector)

Is should be red to red and blue to blue.
