Normal Noises and Sounds - Stacked Laundry Center

Normal Sounds You Can Expect:

At different stages of the wash cycle, you may hear sounds and noises that are significantly different from those of your previous washer. For example, you may hear a clicking and hum at the beginning of the cycle, as the lid lock goes through a self-test. There will be different kinds of humming and whirring sounds as the washplate moves the load and as the basket is slowing down to stop. And sometimes, you may hear nothing at all, as the washer determines the correct water level for your load or allows time for clothes to soak. These are all normal noises for this type of machine, and no service is required. Click the link below to hear sound clips of normal operation of your washer.

Be sure the washer is connected as directed in the installation instructions, and load as directed in the Owner's Manual. If not, the washer could become out of balance, and make other noises due to this situation.

Do not overload the machine. Sounds can be louder when the machine is overloaded. If the washer is overloaded, it can go out of balance, and the basket may hit the sides of the washer cabinet. This causes loud noises and vibration. Follow your Owner's Manual for loading instructions.

Always use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent.
