Question Strange clunking noise during agitation cycle
Model Number: RAB5232EW1   Brand: Roper   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi. Our washer's been working fine for sometime when just today, and I had a small load in the washer, it made this clunking/grind sound while washing. I checked and let it agitate for a bit when I heard the same sound again. I stopped the washer but am not sure what's going on.

Is it finally kicking the bucket or is there still hope for it? It's a Roper RAB5232EW1 model, 5 speed, 2 cycle washer, no frills but it gets the job done.

Hope someone can point us in the right direction for help. Thanks again!

Yes, obviously we need the audio as well. People do this for us all the time so we can see/hear whats going on. Much easier for us to hear it for ourselves rather than go by a description of the sound.

Sure, I understand. Just give me a bit to get my camera going...don't have a cellphone handy to make video.
Thanks for your quick reply!

Could be the dogs in the upper agitator are stripped. Sorry, I knew I should have asked to show the video looking into the tub with the lid open so we could see the agitator in operation. Does the washer drain and spin ok without making the noise?

Oops, never mind about the dogs. Yours doesn't have the two piece agitator, but it could be the splines inside the agitator are getting stripped. Yes, a video of the agitator in operation might help.

Oh, I am SOOO sorry this has taken so long. I could tell you but you don't want to hear it, just here's the video as requested:
