Why is My Washing Machine Making A Loud Noise?

Is your washer making noise? When you consider what happens inside a washing machine, you’ll wonder how it’s possible for it not to make noise at some point, running through all those cycles. But here you are, your washing machine banging or thumping or some other loud sound you know isn’t right and you’re worried because it’s not a sustainable situation. And that’s where Repair Clinic comes in. The most common cause of a washer making a loud noise is simply an off-balance load in the spin cycle. Many models are designed to turn off and alert you to an off-balance load before the jiggling and jostling walks your machine across the floor. There may be another cause, though, and some will require technical care and personal attention. Look below at the list and we’ll help you figure out what’s wrong, get you the right replacement part and show you how to fix it.

Common solutions for: Washer is making loud noise
Solution 1:
Bearing
The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassemb...ling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing both the outer tub and bearing.

Solution 2:
Rear Drum with Bearing
The rear drum has a bearing or bearings in it to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the tub bearing system is defective the washer can become very noisy. On some machines bearings are sold separ...ately from the rear drum, however we recommend replacing both the outer drum and bearing as an assembly if the manufacturer offers the components together because removing and pressing in the new bearing can be exceptionally difficult. Be aware that replacing the outer tub and bearing is also not easy and can be very costly.
