Check for the tighten nut to agatator is tighten. If agatator is lose it floats up and down during the wash. There is a lock ring (rubber) on the shaft that holds the agatator on, check this, if off replace thid . If the agatator is still in good shape can still use it , if not pull of and replace it. This work is't hard to do.

A knocking noise during agitation wash cycle


could be a bad counter balance , u can remove the front panel and run a spin or wash cycle and listen to where its coming from so u don't have to replace all the balancers. on some models theres a heavy ceramic weight at bottom that at times goes bad and throws it off balance, just run it and look where noise is coming from

Noise hear during washing cycle?


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Maytag Neptune makes loud drums like sound 5 min before it stops.


its probably because of the way the clothes are in it. you have to make sure the clothes arent leaning to one side and that they are evenly set up. otherwise when it goes into the spin cycle itll lean and hit the side of the washers inside and make it shake and do what you said it was doing.

Clanking, sparking sound coming from washer


Need to know a little more info. Need to know if this noise starts when you first turn it on (during the fill up cycle), once the actual washer starts (wash cycle) or when it goes into spin cycle.

Agitator fall off and knocking noise during spin cycle


there should be a rubber washer with the bolt. if it is missing the bolt may back of during agitation. also the threads on the transimision may be stripped. Some Green lock tight found in most hard ware stores should help. the knocking noise is probably due the agitator coming loose.
