Washer makes loud knocking noise

Hi
I have a roper washing maching that spins fine but makes a loud banging noise during any extraction cycle. This noise is different than when the load is off balance. The faster the spin the faster the noise. Any hints?

    I have the same problem with my Roper top loading washer, different model. How do you go about fixing the bearings on it or getting to it all?

    Thanks

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..

What is the model # of your machine???? The loud banging noise sounds like the loads were getting unbalanced. This is the most likely since i have no problems with the suspension all of a sudden not stabilizing tub properly. If the washer was moved or transported than that would make more sense to me. please provide as much info as you can. Try doing a load of 10 towels. Let me know how that does and with the model # i can help with pulling some diagnostic codes

Amana top loader washing maching permanently tilted drum & loud banging during spin cycle


I guess you washed some curtains and blankets in it that it spun unbalanced. There are 2 things. One is the one of the suspension springs broke off. Another is the center post is already bent. You may have to check inside. If you are handy, you can take off the cover and check. Suspension springs are dangerous when being replaced. You may have to wear a pair of goggles. With the centerpost, it is difficult to replace. I suggest you call a technician for this.

Frigidare front load washer has loud banging on spin cycle. After much work we reallized one shock was broken of which we repaced both now it still making the loud banging shaking motion. Also the washer...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since the suspension is ok and it is level, check your drive motor and spin bearing. Usually, these are the trouble parts when loud noises are associated with the spinning cycle. Your drive motor controls the spinning. Since the noise is during spinning, that is probably where your problem lies.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

That sounds like a bad drum bearing, check and eventually replace the drum bearing.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
