Hi,

my washer is extremely loud when in the spin cycle lately. It still completes the cycle fine but the intensity of the noise it makes is ridiculous. My first thought was that it probably was that the transmission is going bad but I wanted an opinion from an expert.

Thanks for your help

Hi,

NTW4516FW
Missing a digit. I found NTW4516FW0, NTW4516FW1, NTW4516FW2 and NTW4516FW3.

Is it a roaring like noise?
Grab a hold of the wash basket, give it a spin by hand. If the noise is there the tub bearing and tranny are likely the noise maker :(

Hi Jeff,

yes it is like a roaring noise and yes it does it a little bit when I turn it by hand. I also checked the pulley and belt underneath the washer and they seemed fine. When I turn it by hand, I can hear the sound lightly and sometimes a clicking sound as well (like a bearing knocking).

Guess this washer is going to the trash...
