SOURCE: GE Model WHDSR209D2WW makes unbearable loud metal Screeching noise

ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Makes horrible noise during spin cycle only

The bearings have most likely gone bad. This is a very common problem with the front load washer when powder soap is used.

SOURCE: loud screeching noise when spin cycle is on

Good morning! Possibly the noise was due to improper placement of load into the spinner which should be within its capacity load. best regards.

My Maytag PAV2200AWW Washing Machine makes a noise like grinding or metal-metal contact during the agitate cycle. How can I fix it?


The sounds of 'metal grinding/banging" begs the question of whether or not its even safe? If you hear that sound all the time or as you say ONLY during the agitation cycle suggests that you be able to service the tub/motor mounts in the underneath chass--which is a heavy-duty technician job. A Maytag technician has the tools you need. Or the obvious...get another one from a friend who is upgrading to a new washer and hands it down to you for a little change.

Why does washer make grinding metal sounds during wash cycle only?


When it is washing, look to see if the basket is moving at all. The basket should be stationary during the agitation cycle.

Knocking noice in agitation cycle


Do you get same sound if you run through a wash cycle empty (no clothes?) using detergent? If so, then likely a basket support has come loose (check deep inside along top ring). If not, then you may be overloading washer (unless using different sized loads), or the agitator is not working like it should, and basket is torquing.

GE washer WJSR4160G0WW agitation is way too fast & hard


check the 4 rubber cords at the top of the tub. If the washer has been moved they may need to be adjusted, you can see them by looking between the top of the tub and the top cover. You can turn them with your hand, and you may need to tighten them after.

A screeching sound during agitation cycle only.


sounds like a bad clutch. check the transmission out for ware and inspect the clutch as well. make sure the brake is not dragging as well.

Washing machine makes a clanging sound during agitation/spin


Without being there to physically see what it's doing or hear the sound, I would say there's 3 possibilities. 1) drive block is slipping on basket drive / brake assembly. 2) basket drive assembly is worn where drive block seats onto it. 3) clutch slipping.
