My washer experiences a clanking sound intermittently during the spin cycle. It appears to start only after the motor is hot after the washer has been in use for 10+ minutes, but once it starts, it is frequent and causes spinning to stop. Is the motor cutting out because t is getting too hot? How can I troubleshoot this?
You will want to pull the agitator and check the hub nut that holds the inner tub in place. If the hub is loose it will cause the inner tub to shift and cause an unbalanced issue which could cause the unit to shut down. Also check the pulley on the bottom of the motor to make sure that it is not getting loose when the motor heats up. If these check ok then the motor is most likely faulty.
I got this washing machine from the previous owner. Today this machine just suddenly does not drain the water & does not spin as well. Do I need to change the pump assembly & may the belt?
You will want to pull the pump and check to make sure that the pump is not clogged or restricted and make sure that the pump spins freely. Also look inside the pump to make sure that the impeller is not damaged. If clogged or restricted then remove the debris and try. It may be necessary to replace the pump assembly as a slow pump 350367 will cause the unit to not spin properly.
