Question about GE EWA5600GWW Top Load Washer
The silver cylinder that you load clothes into has come loose somehow - so it bangs into the sides of the washer casing really hard. the cylinder seems to not be attached how it should be - too much wiggle to it.
There should be 2 screws holding it on at the rear. Looking from the rear these will be at each top corner. Once these are removed push the lid from the front of the machine towards the rear and it will pop off.

The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.

It is under warrenty call the store where you bought it and have them look at it. If you mess with it it will void your warrenty, belt may not be working or transmisson may not be shifting. The house call will be at no charge.

Testimonial: "thankyou for the help, I thought I had just made a bad buy. They sent someone out right away and it turns out this particular machine had a bad part."
Check the big rubber seal around the door for any holes or tears. Had the same problem, my husband had a screw in his pocket that torn a hole in the gasket.

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.
