Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Slow to spin and making a loud noise.

In the spin cycle, my washer was draining, but was apparently not spinning however it was making a loud growling noise as if something was stuck. I pulled the back off the machine and the belt looks fine and the motor appears to turn freely as it should. However a loud almost grinding noise is coming from the Spin Control Board Assy. My assuption is that I need to replace this part. Everything else looks fine. What is your opinion?

    I have this Kenmore 417.43142200 yeah… I thought that I had deduced my initial problem and orderd a replacment spin control module. I put it in and did two small loads (tee shirts and underware) no more than 5-10 items. Everything worked fine. I then did a third load of approx a dozen items with a towel and it would not engage or agitate propblerly. If I moved the agitator by hand it would sometimes engage , but would not tumble all the way around. When it got to the final spin all it did was drain and would not spin up to the really fast speed . I then re-intitiated that part of the cycle and it did work. I started another load and 1 minute ( as before) after it filled with water, the agitator did nothing until I moved it by hand. Can you help?

Control boards don't growl, the fry out and die. Sounds like a drive train problem to me. If it's a front load machine, the spindle/bearing assy. has gone to washer heaven. If it's a top load machine... could be the transmission, brake/clutch assy. or the tub bearings. In either case, if it's less than 5 years old, the drive system will be warrantied through the manufacturer. If you could provide a make and model number, I could narrow this down to a fine point.

The spin cycle is very noisy. What could be the problem?

hi robyn.
A washer making a loud noise during spin cycle can also be caused by a faulty drive pulley. The pulley is what the belt (if applicable to yourwasher) rides on to spin your washers tub. The pulley can be made of plastic or metal. It could be simply worn out or just loose.27 Jul 2015

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle

if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Rattling noise during spin cycle

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Loud noise in spin cycle

Most leaks are associatd with your drain pumps although it can leak from the tub. If its the tube the seals in it are worn if it the drain pump - the first point to check is where the drain hose connecs to the pump otherwise you may need to replace the drain pump

The noise - if its what i am thinking of starts just as the spin cycle stsrts and just as it finishes - usually a clutch problem - worn - parts need to be changed.
