Hi Walter,

Remove the front panel. Run the washer and try to pinpoint that noise. Post the results.

noisy spin cycle.
Hello gene,

thank you for your reply.i had taken the front panel afew times
already but can't exactley tell where the noise is coming from
but i am suspecting mostely from buttom,so could it be the
clutch bearing or radial bearing?

I also needed to know where can i get the spanner wrench
in case if i have to remove the tub off to get to tub bearing.
any info is appericiated.thanks

Sounds like the problem is a bad tub bearing. The seal should be replaced too. It comes with the instructions.

- The spanner wrench Part number: AP4503397

Part number: AP4503397

- The tub bearing kit Part number: 6-2040130

Part number: 6-2040130

- The washer stem and seal kit Part number: 6-2095720

Part number: 6-2095720

P.S. There is a small chance that there something else caused that noise -
