I have been hearing a sqeaking noise in my washer a few weeks ago . Just a couple of days ago i did some towels and it sounded like a loud banging noise it was rubbing up against the drum. I was reading some other questions that we asked and Iwas thinkingit may be the worn bearing? Any help would be appreciated.
This issue would be caused by either a bad spinner assembly or a bad bearing. Normally when the bearing goes out it will have a loud roar to it during the spin cycle. You can open the door of the unit and try to lift up and on the spinner assembly and if the inner drum itself moves up and down independent of the outer tub then the most likely cause would be a broken weld on the spinner.
I have had the washer about18 mo. Now there is a loud Noise during the spin cycle. what could that be?
Answer Hello Rebecca. The noise, if it is a roaring sound, is the bearings and you will need to replace the outer tub assembly 285981.
