SOURCE: Banging while spinning
slid the machine out away from the wall and tilt back enough to see underneath. just below the door there is a large concrete weight. chances are it is loose and needs to be tightened. if this problem has been going on for a while the bolts holding the weight on will have snaped and the drum/weight or both will need replacing .

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete
and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in
excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

SOURCE: banging noise on spin cycle
most front loaders are balanced by a large: ready for this: cement block inside at the top of your machine and because spin is so fast it can sometimes hit inside your machine or it has brokin a peice off ,sorry but yours going to have to get the repair person out.adrian

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.
