Clunk in Washer agitation/spin cycle

2 posts in this topic

We have a White-Westinghouse top loading washer, 3/4 HP, 10 cycle, 7 hears old. It makes a rhythmatic clunking sound on one side when it agitates or spins. It agitates and spins normally but the clunk is always there.

What is the easiest way to get in to the motor and what do we look for?

Thank You

if you remove the front panel,you will see the belt down under the transmission,i'm betting it has a nice crusty burn spot in it, this could be caused by the tub seal leaking water into the tub bearing-if you look up under the tub where the trans shaft goes into it,you may see signs of black oily slugde coming from the fibrewasher that is there- thats a sign of a gummed up,binding bearing
