So while you are holding the agetator is it ripping your hands? or is the agetator just sitting there? If the agetator is just sitting there you probably have bad agetator dogs. I would remove the fabric softner or cap whichever you have. under the cap you will see grooves in the agetator down low. When you manually turn the agetator you should see 4 tear drops that grab the grooves if you do not see this you have bad dogs. Very simple. This usually is the cause for the grinding noise that you are hearing. Please let me know if this works for you //eg

Kenmore 400 make loud banging noise at end of the spin cycle


It sounds like the drive block may be stripped out. To check it, you will need to remove the agitator to see if it is bad. Below is a video to show you how to access the drive block. Here is the part to order if you should find it bad.

If the drive block is good, post back to me and we will continue the diagnostics on the unit.

GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer My washer is 2 yrs old and has started to make a loud metalic banging noise during the wash cycle. It does not during the spin cycle. Doesn't seem to matter whether...


Hi!!
The "Metallic banging/clicking" sound you hear is the Shifter mechanism engaging or disengaging.
The drive system will engage at the start of the Agitate Cycle and disengage when the Agitate Cycle is complete. This occurs multiple times during the wash. GE claims this is a normal sound and should not be concerned about it. Check page 10 of your Operating Manual, if you do not have a manual, click on this link to download one http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90323.PDF

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds like agitator is slipping,then banging. No noise during spinning cycles.


Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

This is your Agitator:

It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc239i1195917&PartID=1195917

This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Washer agitates off balance and makes a loud banging sound until movement stops at the beginning of rinse cycle, advice?


If it makes this noise in the agitate mode and not during the spin cycle, I would suspect that the transmission is going.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

This sounds like the brakes have gotten some residue on them and are grabbing way too hard. The banging is the tub stopping too fast and the torque from this makes the tub bang into the cabinet. Just one bang at the end of a spin. Is this correct???

GE Model WBSE2090A2WW - shut off intermittenly


Does the machine drain on its own or do you drain it manually? The drain pump may be jammed or seized. Try giving the door a light bang with your hand on the handle. The door interlock could be faulty. If the machine starts up after you hit it with your hand on the door handle, the interlock is faulty. Good Luck!!
