    Default WTW4800BQ0 Loud screeching during wash cycle

    Model Number: WTW4800BQ0
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hi there,

    Washer has been acting up during wash cycle. Really bad screeching sound coming from it, seems in tune to how the tub moves. I took a look under the hood and couldn't see much due to everything being closed in, but I took a plastic guard off and a plastic gear that's moved by a small belt seems to be loose, but I couldn't tighten it.

    There's also some black exhaust on the floor under where the washer sits.

    I took a video of it going, not sure how to share that...

    That's not a model number. Read it from the tag on the machine. Click here: http://www.repairclinic.com/ then follow the link “Help me find my model number”.
