Question and Answers

Q:

My washer is starting to whine in the spin cycles and also makes a noise when in the wash and rinse cycles more like a rubbing than a whine.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it sounds like it may have a tub bearing issue or dry lip seal. This type of repair will require a service technician with the proper tools and knowledge to repair. It will most likely require having the hub and seal kit replaced.

The hub and seal kit will cost approximately $180.00 and the service fee of approximately $130.00 which includes the labor fee.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
