Default GE washer noise during agitation
Model Number: WHRE5550K2WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years

The washer has started making this grinding sound during agitation (quick video link attached.) Makes sound even if no clothes loaded. Everything else is working OK.

Any ideas on what this is, or what I need to check next?

Thanks!

I've got the exact same issue and am trying to diagnose. Mine is intermittent. It happened earlier tonight. I am running the washer again and don't have any issues. What did you find out?

We never got any answers from anyone.
We took off the top and front, examined everything we could find information for that might be causing the problem. There are YouTube videos showing things to check.
That left the center assembly, which we could only find a replacement for about $140, since that was the only thing left to check. The washer is hardly worth that (we bought it at year end clearance 6 years ago for $300.) Having a technician fix it was going to be more than $300.

So we put it back together, leveled it, and figured we'd use it until it dies. We still use it twice a day at least, and 5 months later it runs fine, just noisy, especially with heavier loads. And it's even become quieter overall, a dull grind now.

Thanks for the response. I am probably going to take the same approach as you. Not worth fixing.

Default Going to try and replace the Tub Bearing

I have the same noise from the video below. I've replace the motor on this bad boy twice since I've owned it. I do all the work myself because labor can be more than a washer costs. I am fortunate to have a Sears Parts store close to where I live and can get the parts from them.



If no one has an answer I guess I'll replace the Tub Bearing and see if that fixes the noise from the video. That spanner wrench looks pretty expensive from some of the website parts stores. I can take a lawnmower blade and make one cheaper than $50.
