Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Washer is making a loud banging noise..

I've had the washer for about 5 years. I went to use it one day and by the time it reached the rinse cycle it was making a loud banging noise. I went to check on it and there was a burning smell.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Load noise and will not spin out clothes


Good Morning PJ, this is AP with Electrolux.

Thank you for submitting your question concerning your Frigidaire front load washer, ATF6000ES. Typically if your washer is making a banging noise it could mean one or two problems, but primarily the tub is off balance or your washer is not level. In this regard, since the tub is spinning it would be advisable to reach out to a local service provider to properly diagnose your washer. You can often locate a qualified tech through the manufacturer website.

Wash machine won't spin all the time and makes a loud banging noise.


Check to make sure that your clothes are not piled to one side causing the load to be off-balance. If that does'nt fix it then, It may be that your machine has a balance stabilizer on it that has worked its way loose or even off.

My GE wjre5550h1ww waher makes a continuos loud clank/bang noise when time the washer is in the soak/agitator cycle. Rinse and spine cycle, normal noise/sound. Please help! Thanks


The part (it has three prongs) that the transmission (yes your washing machine has a transmission) uses to cause the reciprocating motion of agitation has broken off 1 or 2 of the 3 prongs, and, if you
continue to use the washer (you might as well, the part is broken already - you may as well run it until it dies), the part will break completely, and you'll lose the soak/agitator cycle altogether.
FIX: replace the broken 3-prong plate, and give it a nice coating of automotive bearing grease to help it last for awhile (until the next thing breaks).

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.

Washer agitates off balance and makes a loud banging sound until movement stops at the beginning of rinse cycle, advice?


If it makes this noise in the agitate mode and not during the spin cycle, I would suspect that the transmission is going.
