Question about Frigidaire GLWS1233A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Roper Washer About a week ago, my 2 year old Roper Washer began making a screeching sound during the whole wash cycle. It sounds similar to when a fan belt on a vehicle needs to be replaced, but not quite as loud. It does not do it during any other cycle, and fills up as normal. The only difference is the sound.

My dishwasher is making these horrible screeching sounds during the wash cycle !! It's a stainless steel fridgdaire dishwasher about 5 yrs old

Open up the door, try spinning the cross fan to see if you can replicate the sounds if it does, check the fastener to see if it's either too loose or too tight, either of which can create such sounds.

Humming or buzzing during wash and spin cycles.

it's the motor that makes the humming sound..it may have difficulty in starting..when starting like this the motor draws more current and this may cause the windings to burn out..try reducing the load..if the sound disappears then indeed the capacity of the motor is deteriorating...take out motor and clean bushing and lubricate.. also realign belt ..

Screehing noise when furnace is running

usuall a schreeching noise during blower opperation is bad berrings which would need to be replaced. Most unit warrentys for newer units cover five year parts and sometimes 10 for heat exchanger.

Thumping/knocking/rattles during wash agitation cycle

Mine is doing the same thing. I opened it up to see what was happening and it was the drive belt tension arm bumping around. Soon, the belt started slipping during the spin cycle. Now it won't spin and the belt starts to smolder from the friction of the drive motor. If you haven't checked your belt, that's a good place to start.
