    Common washer repair parts you may need

    Replacing one of these washer parts may fix your problem.

    Suspension Rod Replacement

    If the suspension rod in the washer is broken, damaged, or worn, the wash tub will shake excessively and might loudly hit the sides of the washer cabinet because the suspension rod can't support or steady the tub anymore. This can also cause damage to other parts of the washer. If you suspect a problem with the rod, have a Sears Home Services technician check the washer and replace the rod if necessary.

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    A noisy washer during operation may indicate a malfunctioning electronic control board. This is because the board affects crucial components such as the water valve, drive motor, drain pump, and cycles. A faulty board can cause one or several of these components to malfunction, causing unusual and unexpected sounds.

    Motor Replacement

    When a washer motor is defective, it may struggle to spin the basket or move the agitator, resulting in noises such as squealing or grinding. Additionally, you may notice erratic spinning or agitation, or find that the laundry isn't rinsed completely or remains soaking wet at the end of the cycle. Furthermore, the motor may overheat, leading to a burning odor or visible damage to the motor and surrounding areas.
