Washer makes very loud noise during spin cycle
My washer makes a very loud noise during the spin cycle (it does not make the load noise during any other cycles). The load is balanced and the drum is not wobbling side to side.
I have the same problem, it’s the drum bearings and seal. The seal leaks and water gets in the bearings and destroys them, hold the outer drum then try to move the inner drum, if it moves at all it’s gone!!
I'm going to pull mine apart and goto an auto parts place to match them! If that doesn't work will try to find them by the old part number on each one, I have two bearings and one seal. Good luck!
Es esta una buena pregunta?
I have this problem too and now just noticed that it is spitting grease out in splatter pattern on the floor. Is it hard to change the bearings?

Dan - thanks for information. My Kenmore Elite Oasis (model #110.27042602) has gotten much louder during the spin cycle. Seems to be spinning fast and gradually going from slower to faster spin. Clothes may be slightly more damp ... just much louder. Potential Clutch Assembly issue? Correct part #? Also saw comments on Drum bearing and Seal ... possibly issue ... way to test? Correct part #? Both of these DIY repairs for folks handy at DIY things? Instructions with parts? Or on the Repair Clinic web site? Due to balance issue, I replaced the suspension damper springs/rods 6/18 and took care of that issue. Thanks - Doug

It's Dec 2022, my Kenmore Series 600 is making loud banging in I initial spin when first starting. Sounds like a "Jake brake" could this be the clutch problem described here?
