My washing machine makes a VERY loud rumbling noise during the spin cycle, along with a squeaky noise. There's also a considerable pile of rust dust and grey metal shavings under the machine. I'm worried that the bearing has gone, but I'm not sure which bearing I'll need. I'm also not sure if I'll need gaskets and seals as well.
Answer Hi Anna. The tub support part # 280184 comes with the center post bearing and seal kit installed. Open the lid. Reach in and move the agitator shaft front to back and side to side. If you hear the squeaking then, you will need a skate plate part # 3946509. There are 3 white suspension pads on the plate that has worn off and need replaced. Thank you.
My washer when spinning, it made a loud grinding noises ( like a bad bearing). Can you tell me what part do I need? When I look at the part 285203 listed in your website, I did not find my model. Pls help. Thank you. John.
Answer Hello John. Check and make sure there is nothing stuck inside the pump assembly and that there is nothing between the inner and outer tubs. If not, then it sounds like the bearings may be bad and you will need to replace the outer tub assembly W10193886. The bearing is made into the tub assembly.
When washer is in spin cycle, it makes thumping noise not to bad. help
