Makes louder than normal noise when in the spin cycle on max extract loud howling noise not a metallic noise.
The loud noise during spin would be caused by a bad bearing. You would need to have the rear outer drum of the unit.
On the spin cycle loud metallic noise sounds like bearing issue. Took belt off motor seems fine.
Yes, a loud metallic noise during the spin cycle would be a bad bearing and you would need to replace the outer tub 22004465.
I need to replace inner and outer bearing and seal. Starting with the outer, snap ring removed, with a wood dowel I can not get it to move (inside tub hitting out) Any pointers . PS and is there a snap ring for the inner and do I go out side in.
Answer Hello Joe,
To remove you will probably want to use a metal punch and work around the bearing. Do not try to stay in one place on the bearing because you can damage tub. When you do the inner you will go from outside in. The inner does not have a snap ring for it.
With even a light load the washer will not balance. When it starts a spin out it does not balance and sensors kick out as they should. I have replaced the struts and springs which helped some but still will not finish spin out 90% of the time.
Answer Hello Jim,
You may want to pull the baffles out of unit and check to make sure that the bolts on the spinner assembly are tight and in place. If the bolts on the spinner are loose or broken off then it will cause unbalanced loads. If the bolt has broken off then you will need to replace the spinner support W10181639.
My wife's washer will go through a wash cycle but will only hum when it is going into a spin cycle. The washer will spin very slowly but will not remove water from the tub. Where would be the best place to start looking?
Answer Dan, With your post description, the best place to start would be the motor control 12002039 and harnesses. There are other components and circuits involved for a proper high speed spin. We'll be sending you some additional information, that should help you out.
