SOURCE: drum is loose and banging on hotpoint aquarius wf541

This sounds like a classic case of main drum bearing or drum support failure, it is a major repair and not really a DIY repair, unless you are coversant with w/m's
It involves a complete strip down and in some cases it is neccessery to to have to replace the drum as well.
The cost of the parts involved is well in excess of £100.00,and it really is not an economical repair.
I think you would be better off buying a new washer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

SOURCE: my washing machine bangs terribly

Check under the washing machine to see if there is any grey dust. My machine made so much noise on the spin that i could not use it. The solution was the front brick had loose bolts. When I tightened them up, I had no more problems

When the washer spins the drum sounds like an airliner it also just started making a banging sound I can feel the banging on the right side of the washer

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty
or rear bearring has worn out.
this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container
