2 Reasons Your Washer May Be Making A Loud Noise

If your washing machine is making some loud noises that don't sound quite right, you may be able to fix this issue yourself. Here are a few reasons why your washing machine may be sounding a little off. 

#1 Your Load Is Off

One of the most common reasons that your washing machine may sound a little loud is because the load is off. Sometimes, all the clothes in your washing machine end up gathered on one side of the machine. This can happen if you have an item that is particularly heavy in the wash or if the washer is really full. In this instance, if you have a top-load washer, stop the washer and redistribute the clothes evenly around the washer basket. If you have a front-load washer, you are going to need to wait for the spin cycle to open up the washer to redistribute the clothing. 

You can prevent this from happening by not putting all of your clothes on one side of your washing machine with a top-load machine. You can also prevent this from happening by not overloading your washing machine.

#2 You Have A Clogged Drain

If the sound coming from your washing machine sounds more like a humming or clicking sound, there is probably some small object that has gotten caught in either the drain line or in the water pump for your washer. 

To get rid of the item that is clogging up your drain line or water pump, you are going to need to access these lines. If you have a front-load washer, there should be a door near the bottom that you can open up and gain access to the water line and pump to remove whatever is stuck. Just make sure that you are not using your machine and that you have some towels on hand to clean up any water that may leak out.

If you have a top-loading washer, you are going to need to pull your washing machine out and remove the back panel so you can gain access to the water pump and drain line. Simply detach the water pump and drain line, and tip them over to see if anything falls out.

You can prevent this issue from happening by always checking the pockets of everything that you put into your washing machine. More often than not, small objects like little toys or even loose buttons or chains get sucked up and stuck in your drain lines and/or water pump. 

If you can't solve the problem yourself, contact a washing machine repair service for assistance.
