Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.
Don't know what type of washing machine you have since you did not provide a model number. But if it is a front loader, and it makes a loud noise when spinning, the problem could be that the support arms have failed. It would cause the machine not to be able to spin properly. To confirm the problem, unload the washer. Spin the wash drum by hand, and notice if the drum sags or wobbles when it spins. If it does not turn smoothly, then chances are the spider arms are broken. It is big job and expensive to fix. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it worth fixing.
Emptying the tub is easy, just lower the drain hose into a bucket on the floor, or into a floor drain. If the timer can be operated manually, turn it to spin, then drain after spinning a while. If this is an electronic timer, you will need to remove the clothes and take to a laundromat or a friend's house to spin the water out.
It might not be the leveling of it. Front load washing machines have a lot of power when they go into their spin cycle. Depending on your floor and if the washer is upstairs it is going to shake and make a ton of noise. When I worked for Sears as a tech I had to explain this to a lot of people that just got their first front loaders. Some of them would say that it sounded like a plane was flying threw the house when it would spin. Others said it was like an earthquake. Front loaders don't work good in mobile homes either. Not saying that you have one. Anyway, when these go into spin the have so much force coming from them and all that force goes straight to the floor. If your floor is weak or that washer is in a spot where it is weak it's going to shake. The best thing to do is go under the house and put in a support beam right under the washer. This will get it to lighten up a bit and maybe even fix all together. Give that a try and see how that does. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck.
sounds like a bad lid switch, agitates but doenst advance to rinse, remains full of water?? if so lift the lid up and downa few times hear a "clicking" noise?? problably not. machine doesnt think lid is closed so for safety reasons wont spin/drain replace the door switch assy part num 3949237
Biggest problem i get on the front load machines are spinning and draining problems. First thing to check is make sure your soap is not foaming up. If you see alot of suds in the machine when it is washing switch brands h.e. soap is best but he liquid tide has been a big problem with suds. Next make sure you put equal size items don't mix heavy and light items in machine as this may have off balance issues! Next check the coin and pintrap if it has one some machines have filters on the front of the machine that need cleaning.After these have been checked see if the machine has any unusual noises or odors when used rubber burning odor or electrical odor when in use may indicate a overloading or internal problem with the machine.
