SOURCE: Drum Speed - Unstable

The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn. When these components are worn-they prevent the drum from spinning freely, and usually you hear a loud sound during the spin mode.

SOURCE: The washer drum is hitting in the spin cycle.

When you take off the back panel, check to see if both shock absorbers are intact. We were having some problems with our (ATF6000E) Frigidaire front-loader recently too. I noticed that one of the shock absorbers was broken, for about $25 I got a replacement (two of them, I couldn't find just one). It took about 15 minutes to replace. No problems. With mine, though, I think because the drum was moving around, it dislodged some wires which made it stop filling up with water after a few seconds. I did a test and it said E5E. I would check to replace your shock absorbers before doing any more laundry so your machine will still work and not have other problems like mine.

SOURCE: loose drum bangs during spin cycle turn by hand

your front drum support blocks have failed. remove the tub and, replace or, rebolt them in place so they hold the drum front in place.

Inspect the outer drum to see if one of your springs has popped off. You can also inspect the lower drum area to see if your vibration dampener has worn out or broken free. Also you may need to check your rear bearing just between the large pulley and the drom to make sure is hasn't separated from it's mount.

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Drum appears to be loose and makes a lot of noise when on the spin cycle


With the washer empty, spin the wash tub by hand. The drum should be spin true without any noticeable wobbling and spin without much noise. If it wobbles or makes any kind of rubbing or banging noise as you turn it by hand. The problem is that the spider support arms are broken. It is an expensive repair job since the washer has to be completely torn apart and the wash drum needs to be replaced. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

Washing machine makes a loud banging noise during cycle and when I check it the machine has changed position (unit is turned slightly sideways) How to correct


Hi
Does this happen every time???
If YES... then the machine is not balanced on the floor well.... the 4 stands on which the machine rests have adjustable screws... You will need to fasten or loosen the nuts that will adjust the height of the legs on which the machine rests.... all the 4 legs need to be firmly on the floor .... If one is too high then the machine rocks on its side...

If NO.. only sometimes...
You are overloading the machine with heavy clothes... distribute your wash clothes by weight...

Berry

Washer makes loud knocking noise


I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. You can also move the inner drum up and down to see if there is something wrong with it..
