Washer drum making loud noise when spinning


Reach into the drum (on a front-loader)and push upward to see if it moves at all, you should feel no play where the drum support shaft passes through the bearings... The bearings will "roar" loudly during spin if the main seal has leaked water into them... Top-load washers will exhibit the same roaring if the seal fails in them also.

Maytag washer model MAV6200AWW


pop off the front panel and look at the inside of it,if you see black dots on the bottom half and on the other walls like half way up from the bottom you have bad tub seals,the seal is made of metal and rubber,when it leaks and in spin it will shot out water and it will be black from the rubber,also you can fill it as high as it will go,then turn the timer to spin and watch where the tranny.and tub meet,if it sounds like marbles spinning and grinding and water leaks out it's the seals.if so time for new washer

Kenmore Elite Oasis Top Load Automatic Washer Model 2708 When spinning it makes very loud noise. Also water leaks out the bottom when in operation


Sounds like the main outer tub and bearing assembly is bad. Water has(is) leaking through the main center seal, through the bearings(noise your hearing is these bearings) The tub and bearings with seal and center shaft come as a assembly, not a inexpensive repair. Also the water is getting on a little electronic board called the roto position sensor which can fail, found as part of the motor assembly on the bottom. Causes corrosion on the connection to the wiring. Your main problem is the outer tub assembly........ Good luck.......(I would also suggest you unplug the drain motor(some have a recirculation pump also) to make sure while spinning empty to run only the main motor that this is for sure the noise and water leak if this is your first repair)

The spin clutch/brake assembly has failed; you must remove the agitator, tubs, bottom seal. then remove the transmission from the bottom; the spin clutch/ brake assembly is located around the transmission agitator shaft under the tub. not a job for the faint of heart; difficult fix; most people just replace the machine. an appliance parts store can get you the part and, give you instructions in replacement procedure if you wish to do this repair.

Tub does not spin. water pump works but no spin


  1. does the machine agitate? if no replace drive coupling between motor and transmission.If yes you have either a bad clutch or transmission.
  2. Remove cabinet and jump out lid switch to run with cabinet off.Put the machine in spin,look where the shaft goes up thru center of tub.Is the clutch drum turning?IF yes replace clutch.If not replace transmission.
  3. My guess bad coupling ,cost $20.
  4. Hope this helps .........Please rate my solution :)

Eco smart won't drain, smells hot


hi
you commented on hearing water in the machine after the wash , i know that f&p spin bowls have a liquid inside the actual spin bowl system i think it aids in the spin operation of the machine, but if you had something in the drain network then that will stop the machine from emptingout as it all works on a time basis check and see that you are not getting any leaks from the bottom of the machime as your new pump won't last long if it gets wet also if there is water leaking that can be the main seal on the motor shaft failing

Whirlpool top load washer


Check to be sure inner tub is not spinning freely on spin tube. It can be noisy when this happens. When it's spinning and stops it may continue spinning for a bit when this happens. You usually need to replace spin tube, because the tabs that key into drive block for inner tub break off. Also replace drive block.
