My washer has suddenly started making noise (its a loud chattering/clicking...kinda like the big wheel on the Price Is Right but much, much louder). It happens any time the motor is turning...
agitating, spinning, etc. Sometimes it will get quieter, even non-existant but, it will come back. There have been times it got so bad
that it caused the cycle to be disrupted (I heard it clicking still in the
agitation cycle but the agitator was not moving. When this happened, if I stop it and try to restart, I get nothing...dead. If I take the front off and re-position the motor, I can get it clicking again.
I took the belt off and all the pulleys turn freely in both directions. The pump pulley however sounds as though it is scraping against something slightly.
Would the pump assembly/pulley be the most likely cause???
Have you heard of a similar case?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks
