LOUD NOISES IN washing MACHINE;

LOT OF THINGS TO CHECK, THE BELT LOOSE OR WORN, THE CLUTCH, THE TRANNY, THE BEARINGS BOTH TUB SEAL AND BEARING, THE REAR DRUM BEARING, the balance or counter weights.

THE DRIVE PULLEY- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.
THE TRANSMISSION, THE MOTOR COUPLER, THE MOTOR DRIVE BEARINGS,
THE DRIVE MOTOR- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.

The drive coupling connects the motor to the transmission and consists of two plastic drive forks with a rubber coupling between them. One of the drive forks is attached to the drive motor shaft and the other is attached to the transmission input shaft. As the motor shaft rotates, the rubber coupling between the drive forks absorbs the torque to prevent the forks from breaking. Normal use will create wear on the coupling and eventually the drive forks may slip and cause a vibrating noise. If the transmission seizes or if the spin basket cannot turn freely, then the coupling may fail and again you may experience a vibrating noise. Most models will require you to remove the cabinet to access the drive coupler. Disconnect power from the appliance before attempting any repairs.

A worn drive block will usually have a pounding sound, like hammering metal, during spin when it first starts. If there is enough interlocking tab left on the drive block, you'll see it finally engage at top speed with an empty basket.

In a transmission lock up the holes get enlarged in the rubber isolator and the studs break off the motor and transmission couplers. This is usually caused by the abrupt motor reversal between the agitate and pump out functions. If you hear a loud bang every time the motor reverses, the coupler is getting loose. An obvious sign of a failed coupler is a pile of black rubber shavings under the washer. If the motor runs and the agitate and spin functions don't work, the studs may have broken off the coupler (old coupler design) or the coupler may have broken at the shaft (new design) and you need a new coupler kit. The coupler can also just crack around its center hole allowing it to slip on the motor or transmission shaft hampering those functions.

If the washer is making a loud noise the drain pump might be going bad or might have something caught in it. Remove the drain pump from the washer and inspect it carefully. Look for anything that might be caught in it, a piece of wire, plastic, etc. If nothing is wrong with the pump, but it's still noisy it will have to be replaced.

Front load washers often use a self contained electric drain pump and the motor may be worn or damaged and require the complete pump to be replaced. Remove any foreign objects or replace the worn or damaged pump, thencarefully tighten the hose clamps and check for leaks before installing the cabinet or front panel.

All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. The shock absorbers or struts are attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and you will need to remove the front panel or the rear panel to access them. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle and if the symptom is not corrected, can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.

Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

GRINDING NOISES:

The plastic drive is known as a splutch (splined clutch). One problem with these washers has been loosening of the nut that locks the pulley to the agitator input shaft. If it gets loose, the pulley drops and the teeth no longer have good contact with the teeth of the splutch basket drive gear in spin mode. The solution is application of blue locktite to the threads of the input shaft. There have also been a lot of failures of the actuator that operates the cam ring of the splutch which raises and lowers the basket drive gear. It is raised for agitate mode and lowered for spin. There is a spring between the basket drive gear and the gearcase housing that maintains pressure on the basket drive gear. There are cams on the cam ring that ride up and down on cams in the splutch cam (housing) as it is rotated by the actuator thus raising and lowering the basket drive gear. The gearcase has a planetary gear set in it.

WHY IS FRIDGE LEAKING A STEADY STREAM OF WATER ON THE FREEZER SIDE UNDERNEATH THE FRIDGE?


I would look for a plugged off drain line, if it is plugged off then whenever it defrosts it will overflow the pan and pour out the front of the freezer. That may be the reason you had ice build up in the freezer to begin with. Good luck

I have a Kenmore sise by side refrig on the left (freezer side) it ices up on the bottom


the drain is blocked.slime builds up in the drain line and then the water freezes in the line,unplug the fridge,melt out all the ice at the bottom of the back panel,you'll see a drain hole there,i use a steemer to blow through the drain line,if you don't have a steemer hit the hole with the hair dryer for a while,then pour hot water into the hole,if the water doesn't drain down the hole try using a turkey baster to blow out the line,or you can try to snake something down the drain hole but be careful,it's made of plastic,when you think it's clear pour hot water down the hole again if it doesn't drain keep hitting it with the hair dryer until the water drains down the hole,sometimes it takes like an hour to free it.

I need to remove climate control panel in 95 linc towncar how do i remove it


First get a sledge hammer and some store bought lemon juice. Pour the juice into the crevices around the climate controls. Now get a sledge hammer and lightly tap the areas around the climate controls. Once it has loosened up, you can wedge your foot into the crevice for balance. You will need this as now you are going to hit the panel as hard as you can with the hammer. The panel should come right off. Hope this helps

My washer leaks from the bottom


I figure that you have a busted outer tub. These are bad about getting out of balance after the black straps break that hold the tub. Once they have broken, the tub hits the cabinet and bust the outer tub. The machine has a ******** all four sides. Pull the tub to one side using the agitator. Feel around the gap you made when you pull. You will find a black strap and I bet all four will be broken. They had so much trouble with this, they made a part to repair the tub. It's called a Slap Stick. Make sure the break in the tub is not over 12" long and 1" wide. If it is, the Slap stick will not work, you will have to replace the tub. Also, be sure to replace the four straps so that you can avoid this problem again in the near future. You can find a Slap Stick at you local appliance parts house.

2004 avalanche wheel bearing hub assembly will not come lose from steering knuckle


If ALL bolts are out....hit it with a sledge hammer to loosen it if necessary.
Side hits should do it.
Make sure you have the correct replacement because the old one will be no good after hitting it to remove it.

Rear drums dont come of


usually on rear drum brakes you have to give them a good hit with a 3lb sledge hammer and rotate the drum as you hit it and it will loosen up after a full rotation or two. You actually have to hit it pretty good though.
