Making lots of noise during spin cycle and now has slight electric smell as well. Unplugged currently, but had still been washing clothes until I noticed the electrical smell.  Started making the noise a day or two before that.

Open the door and grab 'hold of the steel lip of the inner basket.  Give it a good shake and see if jiggles around.  If it does, then that's bad, that's real bad.  Bad tub bearings or broken drum support spider.  It's a total unless you're going to do the repair yourself.  And then it's complete teardown.  

 

OTOH, it could be something more benign like a loose rotor bolt-- remove the back of the washer and make sure that center bolt back there is goodntight.  Or the the splined cylinder of the rotor may be stripped.  http://www.repaircli...Number=WM0532HW

Finally, the hall sensor on the stator may be burned out.  http://www.repaircli...Number=WM0532HW

 

There's also a video on that page that shows how to replace it.

I received a comment that my washer making noise could be a bad drum bearing or bad drum support spider.  I tugged on the inner drum and it does move up and to the right but not down or to the left.  The bolt on the back is tight and the splines are not stripped.  How do I go about a tear down of the unit and any idea on what these parts can cost?

 

If I decide to replace rather than fix can it still be run until the new one arrives?

Topics merged.  No need to start a new topic for the same problem. 

 

Does sound like you need to check out the hall sensor.  I posted a couple links in my previous reply that will help you do this.  Click both of them and check it out.  One of them has a video.  Post any followup questions here in this topic.
