Sounds like the drum bearings have gone. Replacement in the uk would cost aroung £130 as it is very labour intensive.
Would not recommend it on a 6yr old machine as other problems may not be too far off.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.

My washer makes a horrible noise in the final spin cycle on all washes


does ur washer shake & move also? if so, it may be that the loads r too small. especially with top loaders, when the machines not full, the clothes r not evenly distributed and that could do it. if u stop the cycle and evenly distribute the clothes, it should stop. hope that helps.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or 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 will solve your problem.

During the final spin cycle, our front loading whirlpool is making a really loud noise - it sounds like a train is going through the house. It is in the basement on a concrete floor.


If the washer is brand new, look on the back panel and make sure the 4 transportation bolts have been removed. The bolts should be roemoved completely - they are only necessary to protect the washer during transportation.

If the bolts are removed, adjust the front two legs to be 1/4 inch higher than the back two. That 1/4 inch will balance the washer during the spin cycle, perfectly.

Loud noise during spin cycle


is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.

Top loading washer whirlpool


When we move the drum, even with our hand, about 1/2 way through, there is a loud clicking, popping type noise? Sounds like a train is coming through the house before it stops the cycle?
