Machine is operating normally, but after water is in and begins to agitate, it make a loud banging like noise as it agitates. Any ideas? Sometimes it squeals loudly when it stops too.
ANSWER Hello A.J.C.,
These are notorious for brake noise, and I believe this is what you are hearing in this case. You can spray a small amount of WD-40 into the brake assembly to quieten it down or replace the brake rotor and lining assembly 35-6714 and the brake stator 35-6918. If you replace the brake parts, you can expect the noise to return shortly. If you spray the brake with WD-40, you can expect the tub to take a long time to stop after a spin.
