Re: funny noise when machine is emptying

Does the "whirring noise" sound like a jet engine?  If so your bearings are going.  Check your warranty.  It's a big job to replace them.

The washing machine makes loud banging noises when its running.

Either the machine is not balancing correctly or something mechanical has broken. If it works fine when empty then it is a balancing issue. If it does this even when empty then something has broken that supports the tub.
