Whirlpool making funny sound

5 posts in this topic

My whirlpool cabrio wtw5640 is making a clicking sound when it spins at slow speed or when I manually turn the basket. It almos sounds like there is something caught between the drum and baske but I have been unable to identify anything. It sounds like it coming from the center post of the transmission shaft at the impeller, and I can feel the clicking in the transmission case when I turn the basket.i would appreciate any help or ideas.

Tip the machine back and confirm the bolt holding the pulley on is tightened. You will find on this site a link to a video explaining precisely the repair. I don't know where. However, if that nut is loose or off you should use a good lock tight on it and tighten  that bolt. Very common problem.

Its pretty easy to pull the tub on those to see if something is inside there.

Before doing that though look at every hole on the tub and see if something is sticking out like a nail, hair pin or a bra wire or anything else that may have been ran through the washer.

Thank you guys for the responses. Turned out to be the pulley nut like you said. Saved me a 125.00 service call. Thank you so much!
