Question about Washing Machines

Bosch Maxx wfl 1300 washing machine - drum making loud squeaking noise.

Everything works fine - but after a spin, a sound like rubber against the drum emitted. No garments visible in seal. Sound emitts with drum empty or full. Turning drum by hand makes same hottirble noise - near to front of drum. Any suggestions much appreciated.Chris.

hi
The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

Hey check to see if you can move the drum by hand,, if you cant the the bearings on the drum have gone and it is seized ..

If you can turn it by hand then most likely it is the carbon brushes on the motor..

hope this helps

SOURCE: Loud noise during spin cycle

is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.

LG WM4070H front load direct drive washing machine occasionally emitting burning rubber smell.


Sanitary cycle uses calrod heating element inside of washer to heat water. I suspect that is where smell is coming from. If you infrequently use sanitary, and if you use fabric softener and/or liquid detergent, then a built up on the calrod unit can happen. When used, the buildup can produce odors as you describe.

My Kenmore stackable washer makes very load noises in the rinse and spin cycle but still works. Anyone have idea why it's making so much noise


Try spinning the drum by hand when empty, the faster the better. Does it sound noisy or is there a grinding sound? It should sound silent or whir as everything turns. If noisy then it may well be the drum bearings. If it clunks then it may be one of the arms that holds the drum in place has broken.

As it spins very slowly back and forth it also makes the grinding squeeking noise.


Hi Robert.
What you describe sound like a distorted drum and/or collapsed bearings. The grinding noise is typical of bearings which are worn out, and the squeaking can come from the drum rubbing on the door seal.
Check if the inner drum is loose and flops up and down. Also spin the drum by hand and see if it's touching the rubber door seal anywhere. If it spins freely but make a growling noise your bearings need to be replaced..
Neither of these situations are good. A serviceman is probably required to know for sure.
Good luck.

Check that drum (2nd below) is not rubbing on this door seal

My dryer is making a sound as though there is loose change bouncing around in the drum. what could this be?


Zippers and metal buttons, like on jeans, will sound like that when tumbling against ss drum. Experienced the same with mine.

Electrical/rubber odor when load is complete


Not many machines are belt driven these days, but the symptoms are those of a slipping belt, or friction against a failed rubber mount.

To find out more you will need to remove the case (or enough of it to see what happens while it is working.

Be on the lookout for some rubbery thing (either a part, or something from a previous load) jammed somewhere where the rotating drum scrapes it.

A burning rubber smell is different to a burning motor windings or transformer smell but maybe only to afficionados. Could be a winding failure on the motor too.

Unplug, un-case and plunge your schnozz into the works seeking the odiferous source. Sounds like I am kidding, but I am not - really try it. You may need to dry run it for a while to elicit the smell before unplugging etc.

Please post how you go, and what it eventually turns out to be.

When I go and try to run the cleaning cycle, the machine will start to spin, then puts no water in and after about a minute en rL error is display. Some time the clean cycle will start with out a problem...


"rL" indicates a garment has been detected inside the wash tub. Garments are detected by weight. The wash tub must remain empty during a Clean Cycle. If you inspect the wash tub and it appears to be clear, inspect the area around the door bellow (rubber door seal) for loose items. It is common for small garments, such as socks and underwear to get lodged in the rubber folds. Pull back the folds around the door and inspect the perimeter of the seal. If you need further guidance please let me know. I hope this helps you.

We have a MMDE9206AYM model dryer that makes a low humming sound but will not start. Last night it also produced a burning smell. I assume either the belt is gone or the motor is overheating although it...


Sounds like drum is locked and motor is running and burned the belt. Try to spin drum by hand, Might check drum ends felt seals, Teflon bearing strips located on the bottom lip of front drum end for wear causing drag. Also check 2 drum support wheels to see if they spin freely, take the belt off motor pulley and spin drum by hand, if easier & motor runs drum is dragging. How is the spring on tensioner, does tensioner pulley spin free? Hope this helps locate the problem.

Smoking washing machine


Switch it off before you burn your house down

The drum support sounds to have either cracked or come loose allowing the drum to run on the door gasket

The friction will cause the rubber to melt and burn hence the smoke.

Get a service person out to it asap

Drum won't spin freely


Are you sure that there is nothing sticking through the holes in the drum like a nail etc or a screw from trouser pockets, it could be that the heating element has come loose and is scraping against the drum or that the bearings have gone.
