Issue:

  • Washing machine emits buzzing sound during washing

Applies to:

  • Front loader washing machine (integrated and freestanding)
  • Top loader washing machine

Resolution:

1. It is normal for a washing machine to emit a buzzing sound during washing. 

  • Many washing machines make this type of noise, which originates from the motor.
  • The motor has moving internal parts which produce this noise when they come into contact.
  • The noise stops when the motor stops turning the drum.
  • The new motor is noisier at the beginning of operation due to the rubbing of the brushes. After several cycles, the noise decreases.
