Indesit wil103 makes LOUD banging noise on spin cycle

My washing mashine makes a really loud thudding noise on the spin cycle. Its 3 years old. Was thinkin its the belt, is it easy to replace yourself. It doesnt make any screechin or scraping noises, so i was hoping it wasnt the bearings!

The two dampers that fix to the outer drum casing have plastic bushes that can fall out. Check the floor under the machine, They are easy to replace just click in place.

    I just cleaned my drain pump and my machine is torn apart. Could you please tell me what a damper is and where it may be located so I can check for the bushings. I sweep and mop under my machine, I am sure I tossed them if they were there.

    Sorry thats an old expression , dampers are what people now call shock absorbers.They look like the rear shocks on a car. Two tubes one of which is smaller in diameter and slides in the other. The bushings are white plastic and are located either end. Go to google images type in shock absorber and you will see what they look like.

May be the weights that balance the drum vave come loose. there are large bolts that attach them to the drum. do not overtighten them as you risk breaking the posts off.
have a look under the lid. if the weights aren't loose check under the machine for the suspension may be disengaged.
indesit technicians will use a torque wrench to ensure the correct tightness of weight bolts.

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.

Very loud banging noise when spinning


sounds like a balance problem may be when the drum was replaced they didn't fit the new drum in the correct spot the other thing that would cause load banging and excessive vibrations in the machine is if the shockers are worn out,
believe it our not even washing machines have shockers to dampen the movement of the drum spinning

Three day old Indesit washing machine


Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
