What could be the cause of loud thumping during spin?

Sounds like one of the balancing springs either broke or came off.

Washer's external Drain hose dislodged at drain pipe, do you suspect the recent severe thumping spin cycle caused this to happen? Flooding occurred. How would you test drain hose? What could be the...

If you were flooded then drain hose does not seem to be clogged. Yes severe thumping would or could cause washer to bounce around enough to pull drain hose out. Thumping would be because of unbalanced load. Or worn dampers and/or springs. Post make and model for better answers.

My roper top loading washer agiatates and spins out the water, however, when it finishes the spin cycle it makes a thump thump thump sound for about 8-10 secs. It is like it is trying to stop but is...

Hi, Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description this is what it sounds like. 1) The basket drive block has worn or come loose and the spin tub from the basket drive is "clunking" as it skips by the notches in the block. 2) The basket drive spin tub may have broke from the hub/base or both are worn as a result of prolonged "thump, thump, thumping". Hopefully the prior not the later. **Unplug the washer from the wall before attempting any DIY service/ first** You'll need to remove the agitator, (the cap) and then the 9/16" or 1/2" or possibly a 7/16" bolt in the may look nothing like a bolt, it may be a plastic block but it still screws off counter-clockwise.

Pull the agitator and inspect the block/hub in the center directly below the agitator which holds the basket in place. if it looks worn or is out of place, you'll likely need a tech.

If you can tackle it yourself, the block number is #389140. You want to be sure the spin tube still has the two notches in it though, otherwise the changing of the block will be futile.

Check that, and let me know how it goes and what you find.

Good Luck macmarkus :)

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning

Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.

Thumping sound at the end of spin cycle.

Rankine, sounds more like a worn drive block that sits under the basket. Usually the brake will not make a thumping sound. Attached is a couple of pictures. Check this out back.
