Washer making a different noise? As with any new product, you will hear sounds that you are not accustomed to. You may hear various sounds when the door is locked or unlocked, and during the washing, rinsing, or spinning process. Between changes in wash actions, there will be momentary pauses. You will hear water spraying and splashing during the wash and rinse cycles. These new sounds and pauses are part of normal washer operation. Is washer installed on a sturdy and solid floor? Refer to the "Installation Instructions" for flooring requirements. Noise and vibration may be reduced by placing a piece of 3/4" (19.1 mm) plywood underneath your washer. The plywood may extend underneath both washer and dryer to keep them at equal heights. Is the washer gurgling or humming? As water is drained from the washer, you may hear air being pulled through the pump. This happens during the end of draining. It is normal.
