Wash machine won't spin all the time and makes a loud banging noise.


Check to make sure that your clothes are not piled to one side causing the load to be off-balance. If that does'nt fix it then, It may be that your machine has a balance stabilizer on it that has worked its way loose or even off.

Drum is making a loud banging noise during spin, it is brand new


Some banging or knocking during the ramp up to spin speed in this washer is normal. It is difficult to determine whether your washer has a problem or not based on your description. This banging lasts for varying amounts of time until the load is balanced and the washer ramps up to the full spin speed. If the load can not be balanced on the first attempt, the washer will ramp down and then tumble and attempt again to ramp up to speed. This may be the same thing that you are hearing when your washer ramps up to spin speed. Since the washer does spin at the full speed, there is not likely a problem with the washer. The components are designed to withstand repeated vibration and reasonable banging or knocking. The washer will vibrate to some extent at high speed. If you feel that the vibration is excessive, I recommend that you check the stability of the leveling feet. Press down on the diagonally opposing corners of the washer to check for play. If the washer rocks at all when conducting this test, I recommend that you adjust the leveling feet to eliminate this play even is the washer is not perfectly level after making this adjustment. This may help reduce the banging and vibration. Other than that if it is brand new call the people who you purchased it from so you don't void any warranties by taking it apart.

Load starts banging like it is unbalanced


Check first the machine balance, to ensure the machine is at level and well balanced and that is not the problem.

If you already inspected springs and strut, then the problem is usually the drum bearing, or the drum bearing spider that has broken.
You can superficially check if there is a problem with the drum bearing by spinning the drum with the hand to check if there is excessive play.
If you found oil under the machine, check also that the support for the motor and motor gear box under the bearing is not damaged, and any of this part is banging again the chassis, this can cause oil leak, and machine shaking.
The most common is a bad bearing.

Maytag HAV4657EWW tub bangs during spin


This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF250 Loud banging when spinning


The hardest amount to balance is a load with just one item.Because you have nothing to counter balance the other side.So,first off,put in a normal load ,make sure your washer is level by using a level to assure it is, other wise if its not all the clothes will group in one spot where its not level ,than when time to spin you have a un balanced load.
