I am having an issue with a roughly 90 day old washing machine, we haven't really overloaded it and i have not been able to locate any foreign objects that could be causing this noise in the spin cycle. I reached out to the manufacturer, but hoping someone can point me in the right direction as far as a diagnosis. I suspect this is a mechanical failure at this point.


Note, i am spinning the machine by hand but this noise obviously occurs during the spin cycle

Hello Allen. Unfortunately I have rarely worked on top loaders. Only ever looked at a dozen or so back in the 1990s. The overwhelming majority of washing machines in the UK are front loaders. That sounds quite nasty, I can't help thinking it sounds as if it's a belt or something similar. It's obviously not metal, or a bearing making that noise it sounds a bit leathery or even rubbery.

Presumably it is under manufacturers warranty?
