How do I fix a ge top load washer that's making a loud banging noise while agitating?

There is either a balance issue or a damaged spring. Usually all you need to do is open the washer (make sure it is OFF) wait for it to stop spinning... then look for clothes bunching up on one side. Take some out ad move them around.
Sometimes putting in to many or too few items will make it harder to resolve. Items like large towels or several towels, sheets and such will hold more water and be heavy until the water starts to pull out.

When washer spins it makes a loud banging noise, washer is a front load kenmore

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Anytime loud noises are heard, it can almost always be traced back to the drive motor. That is what controls the spinning. Check that and the spin bearing. One of these two are probably your problem. Make sure the washer is level though. Check the suspension.

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.

Very LOUD 'banging' noise.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.
