Cool Makes loud clunking noise
Model Number: wcse3100a1ww   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My wifes washer makes a loud clunking noise at the end of each turn in the agitating cycle. Also it seems to struggle to turn, and it will dim the house lights when it clunks to rotate to the other direction. Bad motor/clutch?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sounds similar to a problem I had recently. What it turned out to be was the brakes were locked up. Try turning the tub by hand with the washer off. If it is very hard to turn you might want to check the brakes. It cost me $15 and about 3 hours of my time to fix it. Let me know if this helps.

Pull the front panel off, remove belt from motor and turn the tranny pulley in the spin direction(opposite from agitate). Brake should release and spin basket turn. If not, yes you have jamming brake shoes. Go to Appliance repairs, Appliancehelp, Appliances, repairs to dryers washers dishwashers fridges repairs microwaves ge maytag kenmore frigidaire westinghouse inglis, appliance how to take apart information, purchasing an appliance help, model number help, for info, but Last I looked, they had no repair for this problem,

I replaced the brake pads and greased the brake pulley as the instructions that came with the pads stated I should. From what I have heard all parts kits come with instructions on how to proceed. I also replaced the drive belt at the same time.
