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.

Check your water pressure at the sourse. Strong water pressure will cause banging noises from relay valves open and close. Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Making loud banging noises. Sounds like something is inside, but nothing is. Something seems to be between the basin(?) and its casing.


It is very common for an item to get stuck between the basin and casing. You can drain the washer and spin the basin manually a few times in either direction. It should spin smoothly, but with some resistance. You may need to remove the front cover by typically lifting the top enough the loosen the front panel, then inspect the perimeter of the basin and the condition of the belt and motor. Remove anything that doesn't belong (i.e. a sock or zipper!)
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

Loud banging noise during spin cycle of my front loading kenmore


If you spin the drum by hand, does it make any kind of thumping or banging noise? If it does, then you probally have a broken spider arm(s). This is very expensive to repair, unless you are handy, it may not be worth fixing. The link below shows the problem and how it can be fixed.

Banging during high speed spin cycle


Laco, drop the bottom front panel and see if all of the shocks are in tact on the tub assy. They just insert and lock by turning. If these are ok, check the back belt pulley. Sometimes one of the tines will split or crack and you will get this symptom. Catriver..post back.
