Sounds very much like the drum bearings have failed. It is not a DIY job I'm afraid. Up to date washing machines are now impossible to actually replace bearings and only way to repair is to replace inner and outer drum assembly. This is a 1/2 a day job at the least to a professional. Older machines.....you can replace the bearings but this still involves removing the outer drum ou from under the washing machine, and the a very normal bearing removal and replacement procedure. Make sure the bearings are knocked in very straight and not on the skew. Good luck

SOURCE: Spin Cycle/Machine makes noise and moves

You can't tight up the tub. You should replace the damper pads that located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Goog luck !

SOURCE: washing machine drum is very wobbly

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

On the spin cycle the washer starts banging & making a lot of noise


Reach inside drum and see if it moves at all when you lift up and down on it or side to side and maybe makes a noise. If so you must have the drum and the rear of the outer tub replaced.

My MAH9700 Front Loader washer is shaking a lot and making a loud banging noise when spinning.


unscrew the 4 screws inside the detergent dispenser and lift the top and see if the counterweight on the tub is loose,otherwise it may be the drum bearings going bad on the inner drum

Bowl off track


Spring missing or skid plate out of place. if the basket has excess movement separate of the tub or agitator then the hub nut is loose or tub rusted out.

Makes a lot of noise while spinning.


FIrst look for something between the inner and outer tub, like a screw nail or bobby pin.

It could also be a tub bearing.

is it a front loader, or top loader. How old, make, model?
