Greetings fellow grasshoppers and Senseis,

My Whirlpool washer makes a loud noise at the END of the spin cycle (when stopping). Say out loud "digga-digga-digga-digga" real fast a bunch of times and fade out. That's the noise!

I will meditate and listen for guidance...

Whirlpool washer... hmmmm... I wonder how many items would come up if I just googled that... Ok...must be a game of 20 questions.. Let's see... Top loader or front loader? Or maybe is it a whirlpool maintenance man that loves to dance after he finishes washing something, then after a twirl or two says "digga.. digga.. digga?" If it's the latter, I'd say give him some medicine and send him on his way.

A video/ recording of the noise would help to pin point the diagnosis..

So far KurtiusInterupptus is in the lead, although he had two guesses, the degree of difficulty for guessing in the blind puts him far ahead. However, we must wait for the final tally.

I appeal to your mercy, Grand Master Durham. How might I provide more vision to the blindness into which you graciously are guessing? Please forgive my naivete as a first time grasshopper, and feel free to be more direct as to what additional information I might provide for you to consider.

 

Humbly...

No... All is forgiven! It'll just be cool to see if KurtiusInterupptus got it right. He normally does, but it's just cool to watch him do it blindfolded.

What you're describing is almost certainly a worn drive block.  See the last section in this article for anatomically-correct details.

Masters and instructors, I banked on your combined theories and ordered a new drive block in advance.

 

After much overtime on my "day job" I finally got the time to work on this.  Replaced drive block last night.

Interestingly, it appeared that the tabs on the drive shaft were more worn than the drive block, but the new block fit very tightly and preliminary test runs have been successful!!

 

You guys are awesome, thank you all.

 Thank you Fermented One for chiming in.

  Durham, you were right in that Kurtiusinteruptus guessed it first, blindfolded.

 

Thanks again, all.
