I have had this problem asked a lot and the answer always seems to end up the same. the legs are not perfectly level or the washing machine is on a wood floor. These units have no forgiveness for a floor that has any flex at all. A way to confirm your problem is you can take it out to the garage adjust the legs and run the unit. It almost always runs fine on concrete. Sorry there is not an easy fix for this. Please rate this answer if it helps, thanks, David

This washer should make very little noise in spin. Check if there is something, like a nail, stuck in one of the holes in the spin basket. What does happen with these machines is that the support that holds the spin basket (which is behing the rear wall) breaks. But that only happens after using it for a number of years. See if you can move the spin basket up or down, or sideways when at rest. If you can, you would need a new spin basket.

I have a ge frontload washer and it recently started making a really loud noise when in spin mode. It sometimes bangs the side also. What's going on?


It could be a few things that could be wrong with it. With the washer empty does the wash drum sit centered within the door? Also the drum should be level and not sag down or up. If it does, then it could mean the the springs or shocks are broken. You can check shocks by removing the two screws on the front bottom access panel. There are two shocks, and are mounted on the bottom of the the drum.

If the drum sits level and centered in the door, turn the drum by hand and feel how it spins. It should spin true and quietly without any kind of thumping or scaping noise. If it makes a thumping or scraping noise, or it wobbles as it spins this could mean the the spider arms that support the wash drum are broken. If it does not make any abrupt noise when you spin it by hand but when the machine is in a spin cycle, it spins with a loud roar like a jet plane is landing in your laundry room, then the bearings are gone.

It can be very expensive to have these machines servied since the machines needs to be taken apart to get the drum/bearing assembly. If you are handy, you can replace the bearing and seal for less than $100 in parts, but, if the spider assembly is broken, the parts alone can cost as much as a new washer.

Washing machine sounds like a jet plane, when spinning


I would suspect that the main drum bearings have failed.
From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough or is noisy, then the bearings have failed.
There should be little or no noise when you spin the drum.

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
