Washer makes a loud noise when in the spin cycle
I have a Kenmore washer (model # 110.20922990). When in the spin cycle, it starts making a loud hissing sound and then a loud thump is heard every few minutes. When I open the door to see if I can see anything, the tub abruptly stops. I believe my machine is a direct drive so I know it is not the belt. Please help.Answer
Noises can be tricky. In some cases a hissing noise is normal but if it is extreme there could be something wrong. There is a chance there is something stuck between the tub and the spin basket.
There could be something in the pump but it would most likely be noisy during wash as well.
Check to see if the spin basket or agitator seems loose.
It could have something to do with the spin tube.
The truth is, it is hard to say without being there. These models give very little noise problems so there isn’t a common (that happens often) thing I can tell you about.
You are correct there isn't a belt.
