Interior drum is loose. The satin less steel drum on the inside seems to have come loose. The outside part is well seated and secure but the interior drum seems to have become loose.

if the drum bangs all around and is noisy when it's spinning the spider gear is broke.usually it breaks from using to much detergent,in a front load washer you use less water so you need less detergent,you should be using 1/4 cup of h.e. detergent,any more than that damages the spider gear,the metal that it's made out of is like a metal stud that you would use when framing a wall,the extra detergent gets in there and it's like sand paper it eats at the metal and it breaks and the drum feels loose.unfortunetly it's time for a new washer,the gear costs around 4 to 5 hundred dollars not including the can check to see if one or both shocks are broken or check the springs on the top sides under the top panel but it sounds like the spider gear to me.

Have you tried turning the drum with belt removed to see if sound is from drum or motor.If you cant get at belt easy thru. top ( make sure power is off) then you will have to split the casing which will give you a great view of all the moving parts to see if any loose parts.It may be that the bearings have gone so badly that it is clunking as it turns.Normal bearing failure noise is a rumbling.
Remove 2 screws at rear underside of top lid and remove.On top middle either side by springs remove the 4 screws holding back panel,down below at rear there is normally 2 or 3 screws on corners of panel,now go to side of panel bottom middle by seam and remove round white plastic covers put small screwdriver in hole and pull out there is a screw behind each (8mm small socket).Now by water inlet valves prise out white plastic housing with valves still inside now put screw driver in spli on side panel either side and work it back you will have to hold down drain hose to clear panel,once off you can inspect for any damage or loose parts,check drum pulley is not loose or worn,check motor also concrete balance weights one on back top of drum casing and one at front around door seal,sometimes these come loose.To refit casing it is a reverse of removal.
Hopefully this will be helpful.

Good Luck.

Loose drum bangs during spin cycle turn by hand with nothing in drum and still bangs?

your front drum support blocks have failed. remove the tub and, replace or, rebolt them in place so they hold the drum front in place.

4 yr old washer has started banging around violently during wash cycle. Then during the rinse cycle when it starts to slam it will usually shut down with and error of UL. What could be the cause and can it...

some times the springs that hold the tub in place will come off try to look under the bottom there are metal brackets around the drum and should be large short springs holding it three or four if loose just reattach look at one still conected to use as example to put it back together

Banging noise on spin cycle

My beko washing machine was making a racket like this. What it was was the large blocks of concrete bolted to the drum had come loose. Solution was to get a 13mm socket with a bar and extension and tighten them up really hard as far as I could manage. THen the probelm dissapeared no more banging. Worth a try if your has similar blocks attached to outer drum

Make noise like animal being killed,also leaks from left side bottom. (only 2 years old)

check bearings by placing your palm on inside drum and rotate in an arc back and forth and check for roughness,you can also check for noises such as an element,wire,nail etc clipping the drum ,you could also check if balance brick has become loose hope this helps

Drum disconected from washer

The wash tub is suspended by two large support springs from the top and 2 to 4 shocks (depending on model) from the bottom. It sounds like one or both of your upper support springs may have come loose for some reason. You will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. You should be able to see the support springs easily at this point. There is one connected to the drum on the left and right side of the tub. If the drum has come loose, all you should have to do is have someone assist you by lifting the tub up high enough to reattach the spring(s). CAUTION: The tub is very heavy due to the fact it has counter weights on the front and rear of the tub. Lifting may take some effort. Now...these springs usually have a small bracket covering the upper end that prevents it from coming loose. It is not normal for them to become detached unless the drum cracks at the spring support, or if you had a severely off balanced load that may have shaken it violently. In addition, if the support springs did come loose, you will need to inspect the perimeter of the door bellow (rubber boot) to ensure it did not become ripped or come loose from the tub as well. This will cause leakage. Please inspect your washer and get back to me on what you found, so that I may assist you further if needed.

Washin Machine Spinning Problem

The main tub bearing is stuffed, thus the noise. The spindle becomes loose and the belt rides off. Bearings can be replaced.
