Tips To Fix A Noisy Washing Machine

Is your washing machine making weird or loud noises during the spin cycle? If you notice constant bumping or scratching sounds every time the washing machine is turned on, it probably means that one or more parts are broken, loose,or worn out.If none of the parts is broken or loose, there could be several other factors for a noisy washing machine, and some of the most common reasons for a noisy washing machine are explained in this article.We’ve also explained how you can fix those issues in your washing machine.Washing machines usually spin at high speeds (anywhere between 1,000 RPM to 2,000 RPM) to dry clothes. Spin speed is measured in RPM (Rotations Per Minute) and it refers to the speed at which the drum rotates per minute.While you can fix some of these issues, some other problems may require a professional service engineer.

1. Washing Machine Is Not Levelled Properly

It is important that the feet of the washing machine are in firm contact with the floor so that it is properly levelled. If the washing machine is placed on an uneven floor or a slightly tilted surface, it can vibrate excessively and leave the walls, floor, and internal mechanisms damaged.Keep the machine as close to the floor as possible because the lower it is, the less likely it is to vibrate.How to ensure that the washing machine is levelled? Here are some steps to follow.

2. The Washing Machine’s Tub Bearing May Be Damaged Or Worn Out

Did you know that all washing machines have a part called tub bearing, be it front-loading or top-loading machines?This is the part that the washing machine’s tub sits on, allowing it to rotate freely. The tub bearing is located below the outer tank in top-loading washing machines and on the sides in a front-loading washing machine.The outer tank is the white plastic part with an inner stainless steel drum.If your washing machine makes an unusual noise, there is a possibility that the tub bearing is worn out.Sometimes lack of lubrication also causes the tub bearing to wear out quickly. Unusual noise or uneven spinning is an indication that the bearing needs to be replaced. Rusted bearings are also a cause of the noise that you hear when the washer is spinning.

3. Washing Load May Not Be Evenly Distributed

One common mistake that most of us make with washing machines is unevenly stuffing clothes in the washer or overload the tub to save time and money in the process.However, by doing that, you do the opposite: waste time and money. Unevenly stuffing clothes in the washing machine is the worst thing to do as it causes the inner tub of the washing machine to spin unevenly, often hitting against the outer tub and creating loud and unusual noises.This is a more common case with top-loading washing machines.To avoid this, avoid overstuffing the washer with heavy clothes like towels, rugs, and curtains. They absorb a lot of water, causing an unbalanced spin. If you think the washer is overstuffed, remove some heavy laundry and redistribute the weight in the tub evenly.

4. The Washing Machine‘s Belt May Be Worn Out

Washing machines are driven by a motor that works with the help of a belt that joins the motor and the drum. If you hear a constant noise during the spin cycle, it means that it could be time to replace the belt. Do not delay the replacement as the washer might stop spinning once the belt breaks down over time. If that happens, you may smell burning rubber.The drive belt usually costs anywhere between ₹300 and ₹500. Again, a belt is difficult to change without help from a professional service engineer. It is a good idea to call a professional for repairs when your washer starts showing signs of a worn-out belt. If you want to try changing the belt yourself, you can do so by following the steps below:
