Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 9 months ago.

If you're getting a lot of noise on the spin cycle and it's not a squealing noise like a bad bearing, then it means your transmission is going out or possibly the pulley below the transmission needs the center bolt tightened if it has loosened. Below is a video on replacing the transmission and in the video you'll see the pulley that needs to be removed to replace the transmission but you can tighten it as well if it's loose.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
