Possible Solutions


Clicking noise(s) can be caused by several things:

  • Door locking or unlocking
    • The door will lock, unlock, and lock again. You will hear four clicks after touching the Start/Pause button. This is normal.
  • Items left in pockets
    • Empty pockets before washing. Loose items such as coins could fall between washer/dryer drum and tub or may block pump. It may be necessary to call for service to remove items.
  • Metal Snaps, Buckles, or Zippers
    • These items may cause a tapping or clicking noise against the metal drum or door. 
  • Activation/Deactivation of the Heating Element
    • When in drying mode, the heating element will turn on and off during the drying process. This may produce a slight clicking noise.
