Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE4t Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My He4 starts to spin and makes a loud noise, like it's going to take off. I did check the level of the machine and it is good. It does appear that the nylon ring around the drum is melting. Is there anything I can do?

The machine has a broken support arm on the inner tub. Very expensive to replace. Parts alone are over 300.00

In the spin cycle it makes a loud banging noise and vibrates uncontrollably. when u raise the lid it stops spinning right away. is it worth it to fix this or replace it?


You may have to lift the lid and rebalance the wet clothes inside
make sure that the machine is level and the bowl supports or in good condition as an off level bowl will go to unbalance on start of spin

Why does Miele w2515 makes loud banging noise when it is about to spin?


See if you can level out the unit. Sound like the case is responding to un-even pressures.

Kenmore HE4 dryer is making loud noise, like a shoe is in it. The back bottom roller appears to be very loose. How to tighten?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them .

Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning


Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.

My Kenmore 80 series washer just started making a loud Aihaiha electrical or motor type noise. This happened during a heavy load cycle. Noise was very loud. When I click to regular, delicate or hand wash....


The following are the reasons for the drum not spinning :-
* Test the lid switch
* Test the timer control
* Test the centrifugal switch
* Test the water level switch
* Inspect the motor coupler
* Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
* Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
* Test the motor
* Inspect the pulley
* Test the transmission


In the case of loud noises in the machine, the drum bearings might have been damaged and might need a replacement. Also do check the leveling of the machine. Good luck.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Noise during spin cycles


GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.
