Loud noise during spin Whirlpool Estate TAWS 800 JQl

My Whirlpool Estate TAWS 800 JQl washer makesa banging sound almost as if the "load is unbalanced" during every spin cycle. There is no odor though. It is very loud and sounds as if a train is going through the house. No other symptoms...wash goes though complete cycle. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: spacemaker spin cycle problem

you may have something stuck in the drain pump......

first try using a wet/dry vacuum attach it to the drain hose and try to **** out what ever you have stuck in there... if that works you are good... if not you will have to get open the cabinet to get to the drain pump

SOURCE: MY WHIRLPOOL LSQ9550 IS OVERHEATING, BURNING ODOR

As you've already had a new motor fitted, it could be something is preventing the drum from rotating freely. This may then be causing the drive belt to slip on either the motor pulley or the drum pulley. This would also overload the motor and the motor control electronics would shut down to protect everything.

If not, then it is most likley a fault in the motor control electronics. I am not familiar with this exact model, but the motor control electronics are quite often on a separate circuit board mounted somewhere inside the machine where there is a good flow of air. Even when working normally, the motor control electronics have to handle a lot of power and therefore get hot. However, they should never get so hot as to give a burning smell.

It isnt possible to check the motor control board just by looking at it, so unless you have electronics knowledge, you may have to risk getting a new board and hoping that fixes it. Otherwise it's time to call an engineer.

SOURCE: loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds

Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

This is your Agitator:

http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc201

It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired


Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

Washer making loud noise and wont spin


Check and see if the inner drum is loose and floppy.if it is, it's likely the bearings have collapsed, and require replacement...If the drum feels stiff and tight, it could be that something is jammed between the inner and outer drums. Both situations could be costly...Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Washer agitates off balance and makes a loud banging sound until movement stops at the beginning of rinse cycle, advice?


If it makes this noise in the agitate mode and not during the spin cycle, I would suspect that the transmission is going.
