You really should realize that when clothes get wet, they get heavy. If those heavy clothes are sticking to one place on the drum it will be out of balance and knock at the sides of the washer. If this happens, simply open the door (not when the washer is full of water, of course) and the drum will stop spinning. Just spread the wet stuff around the drum surface and close the door...voila!

My Panasonic washer,error code E03 appeared. When the drum turns it makes a terrible noise, like metal knocking on metal. Is this possibly due to the filter or something more serious?


If you turn the drum and hear metal knocking sound it's most likely to be either a broken drum support or a collapsed bearing

Washing machine shakes badly when spinning.


If not an unbalanced load, then it is an unbalanced drum. Turn the drum by hand when it is empty and it should spin smoothly (not freely because it is attached to the motor so there will be resistance). Can you hear a knocking or grinding? Push and pull the drum in and out, again any knocking? With your hands at 3 and 9 o'clock push with one hand while pulling with the other and rock the drum back and forth. Try it with hands at 12 and 6. Does it feel loose or makes a knocking?
Grinding is usually a sign if the bearings going or gone and knocking may indicate a broken drum holder (sometimes called a spider)
If everything sounds and feels okay then it may just be the machine is not level or secure. Rock the machine and if it wobbles check the feet and adjust until no more rocking. The feet do bend or adjust themselves over time, even making some kind of impression on the floor that makes it settle to a different level.

Washing machine knocking.


Does the drum wobble quite a bit or does it look normal? If it's wobbling it could be the drum casing knocking the internal structure. Might need a new drum spring if this is the case

KNOCKING NOICE AT BACK WHEEL


check the rear hand brake in the drum. they are prone to undo the the pin that holds the hand brake shoe in place. when the pin falls out it can make a knocking sound as the pin is being hit and can cause damage to the shoe and drum. you will need to take the drum off and check shoe and change the pin/pins...

Heavy mechanical knocking on final spin yet drum rotates freely when turned by hand and at low end drum speeds. Doesn't point towards the bearings. I have noticed that drum appears to be rotating slightly...


The knocking is the drum running out of balance due to the drum shaft being worn or corroded, or a worn bearing, a bearing can fail even though it may not sound noisy
Either way it is assoiated with the drum and entails a complete strip down, trust me on this, I do know what I am talking about.

Drum is making a knocking noise


it could be the rear drum bearing going out or the rear drum rollers going bad or the roller wheels beginning to flatspot or the front rollers in the same shape,you would need to remove the front cover on the unit by removing the lower kick panel screws,then remove the top cover and removing the drum belt,then remove the drum from the machine to examine all the above issues noted

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
