Why Does My Washer Make A Loud Noise?

Noise during or after the spin cycle could indicate a problem with the drain pump or pump and motor assembly (depending on your model). A noisy washer can indicate something as simple as an unbalanced load or a metal buckle from clothing hitting the drum when washing, or else a more serious problem from a defective washer part. Determining the causes behind a noisy washer might take some time and some parts that are causing the noise are incredibly time-consuming to reach and replace.  Here are some things you can check and some parts that might be causing noise from your washing machine.

One simple thing you can do is run your washer without anything inside (so an empty load). This will allow you to listen to the appliance at work. It might also indicate that the problem is not with your washer, but with a particular load of laundry. However, if you do notice an unusual noise, try to take note at what part of the cycle you hear it as this might give you a clue as to what part could be causing the noise.

While your washer is off and empty, spin the tub or drum by hand. If you hear a lot of noise or there is a lot of back and forth wobbling movement, this might indicate a problem with the drum’s support parts or bearing.
