HI GUYS Customers WP washer makes a grinding noise as its going into spin for a few seconds. It does wash and complete the cycle. I work on mostly commercial and older domestic. I've been avoiding these newer machines but it's time for me jump in. Can I get a little help from my enlightened associates?

Tilt the machine back, remove the belt guard and check for a loose main pulley nut. Very common problem that causes the splutch to not fully engage the pulley for spin mode. If it's loose, apply loctite blue 242 to the threads and re-tighten.

Check for a loose pulley - that's the most common source of noise on those.
