Washing machine knocking.


Does the drum wobble quite a bit or does it look normal? If it's wobbling it could be the drum casing knocking the internal structure. Might need a new drum spring if this is the case

The drum on my WFL2461 is not spinning(centrifuging)


This is not something that is easy to fix. The front load machines use a DC motor. If the drum works when it washes and it does not spin, the issue could be the motor controller.

Makes a noise like a jack hammer on spin,now for about 18 months is not getting worse


Probably the rear bearing is is no good. Check if there is any up and down movement in the inner basket or if by spinning the inner drum by hand if there is any noise.

Kenmore Model 925 75 110 washing machine makes loud noises when the spinning cycle ends (as it stops spinning). Any ideas? Ease of repair ?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

There is also an excellent PDF document from Whirlpool describing how Direct Drive washers work.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

We has the same basic problem with a Kenmore direct drive washer. At the end of the spin cycle we heard a loud noise as the brake stopped the drum from spinning.

Sometimes, what can happen is that the brake will grab the brake drum, like a brake on a car suddenly locking a wheel.

The brake is supposed to slow down and stop the drum without locking.

We were able to spray a small amount of silicone spray inside the brake drum, which allowed the shoes to more gently grab the drum.

See GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

Remove the cabinet and look at the drum directly above the silver colored clutch assembly.

Using an spray can of silicone spray, and a directional tube, spray a very small amount into the brake drum.

Washer leaks during spin cycle


If the machine is leaking then the bolt on the drum need to be tightened. you can acces them by removing the top or rear cover of the machine. If the machine is wobbling it need to be leveled or a shock absorber or spring connected to the drum has come loose or needs to be replaced

Not spinning


If the m/c is washing but not spinning, then u need to check the filter.
It is located behind the lower rear panel of m/c.
Remove panel and remove large black hose on the bottom of drum, there u will see the filter, remove and clean.
Refit and make sure the hose is on properly.Test.
If u have no drum action on wash or spin then u need to check the motor carbons, this can be done whilst u have the rear panel off.
If carbs o/k but still no motor action, then u prob have control board prob.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint Washing Machine (W540) stopped working, LEDs flash....?


You must get the filter out, as there is a very good chance that this is the prob, keep unscrewing it and try to move it about, then screw it back in again , and then out again, hopefully this will dislodge whatever it is that is holding the filtter in.
Plz rate thiese comments.
Thanks.
