Here is what I suggested to another person with a similar request......
Not knowing what model machine you have, I would hazard a guess and say it is your break solenoid or break arm or a variation on a break system.
After the spin cycle, the break solenoid or break motor engages a break arm to stop and lock your spinning drum. The loud clunk is normal especially in Simpson and Hoover top load machines.
You can check this by putting the machine on a spin cycle. Once the machine gets up to speed, open the door. You will hear the clunck and then the drum stops abrublty. When you close the lid again, you will hear the solenoid release the drum, and then the motor starts spinning the drum again.
If that is the case, it is normal and no need to worry about it. However, if you did not have the noise before, then best to get a repairer to check it out.
