Re: very loud banging noise when spinning
Sounds like a balance problem may be when the drum was replaced they didn't fit the new drum in the correct spot the other thing that would cause load banging and excessive vibrations in the machine is if the shockers are worn out, believe it our not even washing machines have shockers to dampen the movement of the drum spinning

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.
Hello, this is a symptom of drum bearing wear, and what you need do is to check the wear to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only moves a minutes amount. If it moves more than a millimeter or two, that means it is probably worn bearings and you will need to replace it. Thanks
Remove the belt, and from the front, spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy or rumbling or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed which would explain why the belt was off.
Also check the drum pulley for a brokem or cracked spoke, again this will give you the same symptons.
Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
