Loud banging when spinning

My Kenmore elite front loader started making a loud banging noise when in the spin cycle. It sound like the load if off balance. The first time it did it, there was a smell of grease. The clothes are not wet but more than usual. Every cycle work fine.

Washing machine makes a loud whining noise when in high speed spin that it has not made before. Noise seems to come from the soap inlet tube.


usually when a front load washer starts making noise in the spin cycle it's not good,most of the time it's from the owner using to much detergent,it eats the spider gear and then it's time for a new washer,the gear costs around 500 bucks,next it will start to bang around and get real loud,i've seen the rubber boot get ripped off because it bangs all around,if you're using alot of detergent most likely this is the start of your problem,when you read the back of the bottle the measurements are for a top load washer not a front load so you better check that,also you could have a broken shock,also you can pull the middle of the pump out and check to see if there are any filings in there,i've seen that before.put it on high spin and listen to it,if it sounds like a knocking sound don't waste your money and call someone in,change out the washer and watch the cd that comes with it and use less detergent,i hope this isn't your problem but when the noise comes from the spin cycle it's usually the spider gear.

My kenmore elite top loader has a loud banging noise when spinning


Disconnect power to the washer then tape the lid closed. Lay the washer carefully on its front panel on a padded surface then check the four suspension spring/rod assembly. Make sure the suspension doors are properly attached to the outer tub to prevent an off balance situation that may lead to the banging of the basket to the outer tub during the spin cycle. Also ensure the machine is balanced and properly or evenly seated on the floor.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Clanking noise during spin cycle


I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.
