Customer Question

Hi, I have a front loading samsung washer model WF350ANW that makes a very load noise when it goes into the high speed spin. This is in a normal wash cycle or extra rinse cycle. The timer on the washer will show 5 minutes, the timer stalls for a minute or two and then shows 1 minute and the clothes aren't wrung out like they should be. Just started over the last week or so.

Hi there I am Joel and will be glad to help you,If the noise you are referring to is a loud roaring noise and is coming from the rear of the unit, then that is the main rear bearing of the washer, it is now so bad that it is causing the the unit not to spin properly, when they get to this point it is time for a replacement because repairing that will cost about half as much as a new washer, when you consider parts and labor and the service call for from a service company and if the rear bearing is gone out odds are you have had the unit for some time now and it would just not be a justified expense repairing the unit because you have older components that you will be having trouble with in the near future as well. Now if the noise is not quite loud and does not sound like a very loud roar then it could be the water pump has trash or something in it and its not emptying the water correctly and this will cause the unit not to spin properly, but if the water is draining out fine then the rear bearing is gonna be the issue.
