Recently, my washing machine has started to sound like a jet plane during the spin cycle. It is so loud, it is ridiculous....we can't even hear the television two rooms over when it gets to the spin cycle. Any ideas about what may be going on and whether or not there is a remedy? Thanks

Re: Very Noisy Washer!
Hello julierealtor how old is the washer? Try turning the inner drum by hand and see if it is noisey or moves up and down. If so then it is either your rear support of the inner drum that has failed or the rear bearings. If it seems fine, maybe you have something in the drain pump (which runs prior to and during the spin) that is causing the noise. If it is noisy during the drain, then you may either need to clean out the pump or replace it. Hope this helps.

Most likely it is the spin tube bearing worn. Reguires some know how and special tools. Requires a major dismantle of the machine and usally I did these repairs in the shop. Bearing will eventually sieze over use and time. Labor will probably exceed the value of the machine.
It sounds like the high speed of your motor is not functioning which tells me it is either burnt and needs to be replaced, or that the control dial is malfunctioning. Because those motors have two or three speeds, usually one of the speeds of the motor is malfunctioning. Always check connections too, and see if it functions in the spin on another cycle. Best of luck. C
