SOURCE: drum hitting sides of machine in spinning cycle

It sounds like you may have to many clothes in it. Try to remove some or reposition them. Sometimes the clothes get pushed to one side of the drum during the spin cycle and all of the weight to one side is making it off balanced.

Why is my washing machine Miele w404 making thudding noises on spin Plse?


Unbalance load???

When in spinning cycle, does your drum start shaking violently and hitting the washer outer walls. Out of balance load.....

Is your machine on level floor. Does it have a play on legs while sitting doing nothing???

Happens for every load, then may be your washer shocks and/or top coil springs have come out or broken..

Or machine drum counter weights broken and drum going out of balance.

UL light keeps coming on stops spinning


The uL error code is displayed when the electronic control detects an off balance load. This can be caused by overloading, bad bearings in the tub, something between the tub and basket, or an issue with the electronics.

The machine begins just fine half way through a cycle it stops. Sometimes it runs with no problem. One time we got a code of (UE) I think not sure.


UE = Unbalance Error. For bulky loads, use a lower spin speed. For regular cycles, use a larger amount of clothing per load, and / or a lower spin speed. You can load the drum with dry clothing up to the point where you are just able to reach your arm in to touch the back of the drum. Very small loads can cause more frequent off balance situations.

What's the purpose of the tub displacement sensor


To detect excessive wash tub movement and shut down the wash cycle. Here is a copy of my post from a real DIY forum;

Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down.


Here ya go.....in this post I discuss the issue related to unbalance error codes DC and UC;

Your FAV6800A or FAV9800A is going off balance with DC or UC unbalance error codes during spin cycle and you see/hear the wash tub banging around at the start of Spin Cycle of the wash cycle or a Spin Only cycle. If this is the condition the TDS (Tub Displacement Sensor) is working as designed and signaling the Control Board properly of an unbalance wash load condition.

The Control Board receives a varying D.C . Voltage from the TDS sensor and if the out of range D.C. Voltage limit continues the Control Board will halt the Spin Cycle and try to redistribute the wash load. If you are interested I will show you how to monitor the TDS input to the Control Board with a DVM.


The Control Board then starts the Spin Cycle again. If the wash tub/basket out of balance condition continues the Control Board will attempt another redistribute of the wash load. After several attempts (4 to 5 I believe) the Control Board will shut down the Spin Cycle and send a error code DC or UC to the LED display of the FAV6800A, my machine type. And I believe a text statement to the LCD screen of the FAV9800A machine i.e. something like "Unbalance Condition" I'm not sure what the text message is.


If you need help open a post in that repair forum and I will try help you through your issue.
The forum is free and my time is free I just don

I have a KENMORE WASHER MODEL 11020894990.The slow spin comes on and works fine but when it stops to begin the faster spin it makes a klunk klunk noise and will not spin.


Well the klunk-klunk is the Break grabbing, to stop it, as it is detecting, what it thinks, is some sort of Unbalance or Overload, or detecting a motor fault, etc, real or not, and is shutting itself down because of this.

Zanussi 1600 aquajet not spinning


It could be the unbalance control that feels that the clothes has too much unbalance, or the brushes in the motor is worn, and need to be replaced.

My washer shows UE code


UE code is an "unbalance error". Believe it or not, it is possible to unbalance a front load style washing machine. Usually caused by trying to wash smaller loads where the drum spins to try to distribute the weight evenly. With less laundry, you cannot distribute enough weight evenly around the drum and sometimes will cause an unbalanced load. If your problem is not a simple loading issue, it could be the balance sensor, loose wiring, or possibly the main control board. I hope this helps.
