Hey guys,

 

I have an Amana washer that the other night I started to think that someone started a lawn mower in my house. It was my washer. When it enter the spin cycle it started makeing a rapid clanking sound. I looked under the washer ad it seemed that the clanking was coming from what I know now as Plastic helix, transmision drive pulley. I don't know how it works or what it is supposed to do, i just know that it clanks very very loadly. Can anyone help me out. I don't know if there broken or something is loose. I can try to take a picture and maybe a vid if needed.

 

Thanks

Joe

Did you pull the front off the washer yet?

I suspect your going to find that your belt has a really bad burnt spot in it. This is very common. If you have noticed it's probably a little louder than normal in agitate also, there just isn't as much tension on the belt in agitate as there is in spin. Everytime the burnt spot comes around it's bouning the idler pulley back and forth rapidly.
