Loud banging on spin cycle frigidare washing machine model no. fws235rft2

For about a month now the machine has been making a loud banging noise on the spin cycle. We stop the machine and re balance the load. As soon as the spin getback up to the proper rpm the banging starts again.We have had the machine for several years and have never had this problem.
I removed the top of the machine and then the plastic lid that snaps on top of the wash drum and have noticed that one side of the wash drum on the very top is worn badly. I have noticed several pieces of shredded plastic from the wash drum sticking to the top lid that i took off. Any help would appreciated . THANKS BILL

If this is a front loader this is a common problem. Unfortunately, it is also a very extensive project (about 8 hours). The tripod supports that attache the drum to the center spindle commonly break. The remedy is to replace both the front and rear tub, and the basket as well. It is also recommended that you replace the drain pump as well. Generally, they will cover the parts (not including the drain pump) under warranty but the labor will be a customer pay.

Wash machine won't spin all the time and makes a loud banging noise.


Check to make sure that your clothes are not piled to one side causing the load to be off-balance. If that does'nt fix it then, It may be that your machine has a balance stabilizer on it that has worked its way loose or even off.

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.

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.
