Making a grinding sound

After I push start, the door locks but there is not the usual filling with water sound. Instead it sounds like a grinding like sound. I tried to unplug and reset but that did nothing. Please help!

    Third repair for grinding noise...Remove top panel. Look to left rear..rotating arm that gets stuck. Give it a nudge, but do expect this to continue...part on order (back order) My machine is only two months old, but not used much because we went on vacation right after buying. Disappointed in this machine.

    I HAD this same problem. Turns out there was part of a pen stuck in the pump. The technician left. Next load, same sound. Once the other part of the pen was removed from the pump, no more problem.

I had the same problem. Turns out there was part of a pen stuck in the pump. First load after the technician left, same problem. Once they remove the rest of the pen still in the pump, problem no longer exists.

I drive a '97 Honda Accord. Lately, my power locks have been making a loud, drawn out grinding sound when I lock them. What could be the cause of this?


The door lock actuator in the door that is making the sound is starting to fail. Replace the lock actuator for that door will help.

Are you using a liquid fabric softener ? If so , try using dryer sheets instead . Maytag is known for making liquid softener look like grease on clothes . After switching for a while , and still grease looking stains , then it is possible for the water to be getting into the transmission and pushing the grease up into the tub . Rare , but happens . Time for another machine if that happens .

Power door locks dont work right


THE ONLY WAY TO FIND AND TRY AND FIX PROBLEM THAT IS YOU'LL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANELS THAT ARE MAKING THE GRINDING SOUND, AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PANEL TRY TO OPEN THE WINDOW WITH THE REMOTE AND THIS TIME YOU'LL SEE WHATS MAKING THE GRINDING SOUND...MY GUESS IS THAT THE GLASS COULD BE OF THE TRACK. AND WHEN YOU USE THE REMOTE THE FORCE OF MOTOR AND GLASS CAUSES THE GRINDING SOUND..
GOOD LUCK.

Washer is making a grinding sound when draining water.


hi, this grinding sound is coming from the pump. the pump device seems to have a broken impeller that is located inside the pump. You will not be able to replace this internal part. This device is fixed and you will have to replace the entire pump assembly.

This will happen if some debris or coins make it threw the pump housing. these debris will settle in the pump housing near the impeller and it will grind while in operation or, draining procedure. the solid debris will eventually damage the impeller and break it off the drive bolt. this will all happen in time but, it usually starts with the minor grinding sound.
