In Topic: Whirlpool Washer (GSL9365EQ0) Making Howling Sound

3 Cheers to RegUS_PatOff.   :cheers:

The problem was with the pump.   I did just as you suggested and removed the pump from the motor and the howling stopped.  I then pulled the pump off the hoses to get a better look at it, and a little girl’s barrette was stuck in it.  That’s all it was!!!  I pulled out the barrette and I now have a quiet washing machine again.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Thanks for the idea.  I hope that's all it is.  That machine is probably on its 3rd pump, but the machine is about 11 years old.  The others just wore out and leaked.  Is the spin cycle with no water in the tank the only thing I can safely test (without flooding the house) with a disconnected water pump?  Since the machine is working, I probably won't get around to testing it for a few days.  I'm a firm believer in "don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow".   Unless, of course, your wife is pissed.  

Thanks for your quick response.  :thumbsup:
