The washer has been a good product for me. However after I used a recommended cleaner to get rid of a mildew smell it’s been spinning great, but with a very loud hollow sound while spinning. One time would never hardly hear it spinning. Not off balance, no squeaks, pings etc. Just loud and hollow. Afraid it’s going to take out a wall if it decides to takeoff. Lol. Any suggestions? Concerns?

    Hi @gedison looking closely at the description of  this loud hollow sound while spinning, the only thing that should have caused this if the unit is off balanced but you are very sure that the unit is balanced with brings us to the assumption of checking your bearings by a technician. How old is the unit? I will recommend you call a technician to check this out to ensure that the unit is running smoothly and it wont takeoff as you describe lol, let me know if you have more details.

    Thanks! It’s def not off balance. Just extremely loud and fast. Bearings maybe. It’s 9 years old. Just found my warranty and calling them. Thanks again. G

    I had the same problem on my 10 year old unit.  I called a trusted repairman; he said it was the bearings , and it would be a very expensive fix.  Said to use it until I couldn’t stand the noise anymore.  After 2 months, I threw in the towel and bought a new one.
