Re: out of balance problems
Hi, it sounds like one of the springs has come off removethe lid to check, then check the ones on the bottom of the drum, not all machine have springs on the bottom the have shock absorbers but these can fail aswell

Gently tilt machine backwards and look underneath for stretched or damaged drive belt.The drive belt also runs pump. If it is slipping under load then the machine will not spin at full speed and pump out the wtare correctly, thuis leaving some in the machine at the end of the cycle.
we just had the same problem and it was the bearing on the bottom of the pump, then it seized and we could possibly have to replace the motor to because of the load the bad pump put on it, I wish you luck with yours.
The list to the right should be resolved. Use a level and level the case left and right, and front to back. The final step is to tilt the machine fully on to the front legs, releasing the self leveling rear legs, and set the machine back down. It should be stable on the 4 feet.
usually this will center the drum and it is more forgiving on balance issues, most of which are common. Be sure to use MORE than enough water for more even loads.
The tub is out of alignment.The suspension springs are weak and must be tight, the tub must not shake,if so the dampers are faulty.
This suspension must be so rigid that it must not shake around freely . check the pulley arangement , the bearings at the bottom spindle, if out of balance. If there is any anomalies in this ddrive section it must be observed and checked.
A careful analysis is most important to having a first hand information.
This is usually due to the floor not being perfectly level, and as a consequence the washing machine not standing firmly on all 4 supports. There should be at least 2 adjustable feet under the machine, try to make it stand as level as possible, with uniform load on all four. If you have a bubble level it may help you establish, if there's an obvious slope on your floor and adjust the machine so that it's well levelled. Good luck!
Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...
there are some springs that help hold the tub even as it spins also make sure that the washer is level check front to back side to side and corner to corner if it is unlevel they will be out of balance in high speed spin
