Loud bang during spin cycle

I just bought a Whirlpool Estate TAWS850PQ used. I am told that it is 3 years old. After hooking it up everything appeared normal. I turned it on without putting clothes in it. It filled, agitated, and drained fine. Once it got up to speed in the spin cycle though, it was as if a small person was banging on the front of it to get out. Bang Bang Bang really loud. It continued until I lifted the lid and the cycle stopped. Any suggestions as to what is wrong? Thanks.

SOURCE: not agitating

Check your drive coupler. Its the rubber piece between the motor and the transmission which makes the washer agitate and spin. the easiest way to check it is to lean the machine back and look for rubber on the floor. Then look behind the motor to see if it is still in tact. Next try wiggling it, If it wiggles a lot replace it. If that doesnt fix your problem, you probably have a bad transmission.

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.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

I have a Whirlpool estate washer...it fills, agitates..but the spin cycle does not work. The timer has been sounding kind of odd the last couple of weeks. Could this be my problem?


i have the same problem with my whirlpool washer. It is five years old! I was told it was the basket drive and transmission that is going. It will cost $275 to fix. Paid $379 for it. What a piece of ****! Will never buy whirlpool again. It was my 1st one. I had always bought GE prior.
