Changes are you broke a "drive belt".
It snapped causing the noise.
Lift the top up (easy if you pry a bit on each corner).
You will see the broken belt.
Remove the old belt and take it to a shop to make sure you get an exact replacement.
Threading the new belt can be a tiny bit confusing but it will soon become obvious.
It is like the "fan belt" in a car.

It should be the machine that has died. If you're unsure you can do it, call your appliance store's technician. Do not open it esp. if it's covered by a service warranty. It will become void if you do. I had the same experience before and the technician really took out the machine and brought it back to their branch office.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series washing machine - loud banging at end of spin

With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.

Basket drive block part number is 389140

If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further.
Good luck!

SOURCE: loud banging noises

Hi!

The reason of this noise is from loose lower front weight mounting bolts or a loose bolt securing the driven pulley. Check the motor adjustment bolt for tightness. The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on upper hose hitting the top cover or a plastic injection mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing may possibly be interfering with the driven pulley. Also, check the drive belt for a weak spot on the belt. Ussually felt on the backside of the belt as a "flat" spot. Check the belt for a weak seam and replace it.

It may also occur due to the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

SOURCE: Machine makes loud banging noise during the spin cycle

The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.

SOURCE: loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds

Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

This is your Agitator:

http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc201

It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc239i1195917&PartID=1195917

This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Washing machine wont spin


Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.
