Hi!

It sounds like the bearing for the drum is failing. Either that or there is a drive belt that is slipping.

Cheers!

There are many parts that can be responsible for this problem. Here are the details of some parts that can be responsible for this problem and what you can do to troubleshoot the problem.

Bearing

If you hear noises when the washing machine is in spin mode, it means that the tub bearing is worn out. When the drum spins, it rides on the bearing which allows it to move freely without any resistance. If the bearing is faulty, you will hear a loud noise when the drum rotates. An easy way to tell if the washer problem is because of the bearing is that the noise will become louder or worse as the time goes on. This indicates that bearing is worn out and is close to a complete failure. At times, the sound from the bearing may be due to insufficient lubrication. If you hear a squeaking sound when the drum rotates, it means that bearing must be lubricated. However, if you hear a grinding sound, it means that bearing is faulty and it must be replaced.

Drive Pulley

Loud noise during the spin cycle can also be due to a faulty drive pulley. The washer belt uses the pulley to spin the tub. The pulley is made of metal or plastic. It can be either damaged or loose, so make sure you check its condition before you get a new one. To check if the pulley is responsible for the problem, you must dismantle the machine and inspect the condition of the pulley.

Motor Coupling

A problem with the motor coupling can also be responsible for loud noise. The coupling connects the motor to the transmission. It is usually made of plastic and it will break when you overload the washer. This prevents the transmission and the motor from getting damaged when the machine is overloaded.

Clutch

The machine clutch connects the tub to the transmission. The role of the clutch is to allow the washer to spin RPM gradually. When the clutch is worn out, the machine will make noise when the tub spins. To troubleshoot this problem, you may have to replace the clutch.

Belt

When the belt of your household appliance is worn out, it can make noise when the tub spins. A worn out belt must be replaced immediately. Replacing the belt is easy and you don’t need a technician to do it for you.

Drain Pump

The drain pump is responsible for draining the water from the machine. When it is damaged or clogged, you can hear loud noise from the house appliance when the tub spins. To troubleshoot this problem, remove the drain pump and clean the debris and dirt that is clogging it.

Shock Absorbers

The role of the shock absorbers is to center the tub when it spins. The shock absorbers are attached to the outer tub from the machine frame. If the shock absorbers are damaged, they will make a loud noise when the machine spins.

If you are still not able to identify the cause of the problem, it is best to get help from an appliance repair company. Today, there are many reputed companies that have dryer repairman, washer repair servicetechnician, stove technicians, oven service technician, and several other appliance repair experts on their rolls. These companies offer repair services to both residential and commercial users. Before approaching a company for your repair needs, make sure you check their service standard and reputation.
