Scraping Noise




 Obstructions(coins, keys, hair accessories, fallen wires from bras) in the tub will cause this type of noise.
 Check for, and remove all foreign objects and obstructions before use.


 1. Are there obstructions stuck in the holes of the tub?  

     When there are obstructions in the holes, they can cause noise and even damage when spinning.

     This is not a defect. When the noise occurs, stop the washing machine and remove the obstructions.

 2. Are there clothes with metal buttons or zippers in the laundry?

     Zippers in pants or buttons on the jackets can cause noise.

     Empty pockets before washing and fasten zippers and buttons.
     Doing this also helps reduce spinning times.
