Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin just makes a loud buzzing noise.


Possible that the motor is not moving , could be a faulty capacitor to the motor. Also check for the free movement of the agitator, if the shaft is tight then it can cause a drag on the motor.

Maytag neptune front loading washer


What is the model # of your machine???? The loud banging noise sounds like the loads were getting unbalanced. This is the most likely since i have no problems with the suspension all of a sudden not stabilizing tub properly. If the washer was moved or transported than that would make more sense to me. please provide as much info as you can. Try doing a load of 10 towels. Let me know how that does and with the model # i can help with pulling some diagnostic codes

Whirlpool mach. is humming when u turn on but agitator won't move


Hello friend,
The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.
In case of the agitator not moving check the following:
Motor coupler
Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.
Belts
Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer.

Check the above, It seems that your washer needs a repair and would not be possible to do it yourself. So yau will have to call a technician.

Do feel free to get back to us in case of any other assistance if problem is not solved or if you have any other query.

Thanks

Our kenmore elite washer makes a loud loud noise when spinning and the tub has alot of play from side to side when not running. Does this maching have a nut on the bottom holding the tub in place?


You can remove the agitator to see if it has a nut holding the tub on, but from what you are saying the transmission bearings are worn out. Loud noise and side to side play would indicate this. If the agitator does come off you can see if it has a nut that will tighten the tub down. I have never seen one as most are all one section tub to transmission. Keep me posted on what you find.
Sincerely,

Making a loud humming noise and won't start or drain (front loading)


loud humming noise in the washers!I there may be two probable causes:

1.) pulley is loose on the shaft
2.)bearing is bust and the whole back part of the tub needs replaced because it was built integrated into the plastic tub casing.

Rust and leak streaks are signs of end-term bearing failure; the absense of these is not a conclusive indication that the bearing is unimpaired.

Remove the belt from the drum pulley and spin the drum by hand. If you hear noise, that's the bearing. hope this helps

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning


Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.

Washer makes loud knocking noise


I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. You can also move the inner drum up and down to see if there is something wrong with it..
