Top load washer makes incredibly loud and annoying whining sound during cycle. machine works fine otherwise(spins, rinses, etc..)
I removed the belt and ran motor, and it made no annoying noise. Sounds like the thrust bearing is whats wrong.
ANSWER Hello Jeremiah. First check the pump and make sure the bearing is not out on the bottom. You can do this by turning the pump pulley by hand, and see if it is dragging. If it is good, turn the thrust bearing and see if it is worn or broke. Hope this helps.
