Reasons behind Washing Machine Making Noise

Washers do make some noise when working normally, but if you hear your washing machine making an unusual noise, you must be on the go. A washing machine is a complex machine consisting of several working parts; therefore, there can be a variety of reasons behind the noise. The reason might be a simple one but if you leave it unattended, it might cause severe damage to your washer, leaving it irreparable.

Let us have a look at some of the possible reasons behind a washing machine making noise.

Do You Hear the Noise While Spinning?

If you hear the noise while spinning, then something might have slipped into your washer’s filter. It might be in the rubber seal, or spinning around in the drum. The culprit might be buttons, coins, a zipper slider, or something alike.

Examine the drum carefully to find out the culprit. But if you don’t find it there, take a look under the rubber seal. If it’s not there too, then it might have slipped past the seal, in between the plastic tub and washer drum. In that case, do not try to do anything on your own, call repair professionals to handle the matter.

Do You Hear It When Agitating?

If your washing machine is making the noise while agitating, the reason might be failed drum bearings. To verify it, turn off the washer and spin the drum by hand. If you hear a loud, rumbling noise, your drum bearing needs a replacement.

Noise When Water Is Filling

If your washer is slow or unable to fill water, it might be because of a faulty inlet valve. The filter screen on the valve can get dirty and blocked up, or it might corrode and break from different places, causing the noise. It is not easy to fix; therefore, the best solution is to replace it completely.
