Hi,

 

I have a Whirlpool AWO43638 front loading washer with several noise problems, worst of which is the jet like high pitch screeching sound when the drum spins fast.

 

Here's my video to see / hear the problem(s); http://youtu.be/DYxbbe72WaA

 

Please can you tell me what is making this problem and how this could be fixed?

 

Thanks very much,

Tommy.

Looks like a unit built for an overseas market, can't cross it over to an Ameedikan-equivalent model for reference purposes.  But listening to your video, at first I thought that high pitched noise that increased as the speed ramped up was motor or even air until starting at about 0:49 into the video I heard what sounded like the tell-tale knocking sound of worn bearings.  

 

For suggestions for things to check and what to do about it, see this post:  http://appliantology...asket-failures/
