Could be bad shock absorbers. Google that washer model number, and at the same time shock absorbers, and see if it has them. If it does, I bet their broke. Ebay 10 - 30 bucks. easy fix. Good luck

Testimonial: "Thanks. I took some the panel screws out and did a little digging today. There are these rubber straps that basically give the tub "wiggle room". They stretch from the frame to the tub, allowing the tub to move, but only so far. Where the rubber goes onto the tub, it just slips over a plastic post and then a screw holds it on. One of mine was missing the screw. You can see it by prying off the "add bleach here" cup and then just pushing the tub to the side. Funny thing is the screw was no where to be found. So I just slipped this rubber thingy over the post and thought I would give it a spin. (pun intended) I was not sure that such a little thing would make such a big difference, but it did. I have washed 4 loads today and it sounded nice and quite, just like new. I will eventually pull the thing back out and put another screw in it, but for now it's working. I believe the intial issue was a really bad off balance load that caused this dude to pop off in the first place, something like a large bedspread or sleeping bag, who knows. Thanks again for offering your reply."

My GE stackable washer is pouring out water while filling up, when spinning makes horrible noise and tub goes crazy


The issue is that a shock or spring that balances the tub has come loose and pulled a hose off when it broke. So the shocks or the springs are bad. The hose might be able to just be put back on.

Haier hlp23e jolting noise spin


You need to level it again. (the knobs on the bottom of it are threaded so you can adjust them to make them level, it can be time consuming, so it is best to start with the one that is shortest.

GE top load profile washer won't spin. It starts


The tub hangs on 4 support rods. Lateral movement is kept in check with 4 bungy cords bolted to the top of the tub. If that washer is not level the tub will hang to one side and the fancy controls will declare an error. Make sure all your rods are good (they drag the base of the machine when worn out and make a heck of a racket) and the bungys are not stretched and the machine is level.

How do I remove the agitator for my machine ? It is loose and spins fine, but makes a clanging noise when agitating counterclockwise during the wash cycle. It seems like I just need to tighten it down...


Anyone with loud scraping/clanging- we had that problem and saw that the large wheel the belt goes around is only an inch above the metal bottom.When we moved the washer with a 2wheeler it pushed the bottom up into the metal wheel. The racket it made was horrible. It left metal shavings ,too. You'll need to pull the bottom of the washer back out.Pull fromt panal off with putty knife.You'll need to lean or lay washer to one side.Put a pillow or cushion inside between the tub and housing side you'll be leaning towards. What I did was drill two little holes-one near the back center and one near the front center. I took a long piece of heavy string,put one end in one hole and the other end in the other hole-outside to inside.Tie the ends around each end of a 1x2,18inch board .Get the board to the back without damaging stuff inbetween-pulling on your back string for help. Make sure the board is against the bottom, get to where you can now pull your string 'handle' w/both hands,yanking and popping the bottom back out.Our washer now works beautifully and quietly.

I have a whirlpool duet front loading washer and during the spin cycle it makes a horrible thumping noise. It seems like the drum inside is very loose as well.


you may have a broken shock, remove lower pane with a 1/4 socket or nut driver, once you have done that you should see 4 shocks at each corner of outer tub, if one has come loose or broken it will sound loud when in spin, it should be easy to notice
