I would recommend getting the service manual for your model as some models have clutches that control spin and others have belts. The service manual would be the best route if you are planning on repairing this yourself. If you would like the service manual let me know and I will post a link to where you can get one emailed to you.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

SOURCE: GE Profile - Loud knocking on spin cycle

Just random input, I apologize if this is of no help to you. I've only experienced this with my washer when clothes somehow get bunched up on one side of it.  The best I can tell you at the moment is to make sure there is relatively equal distribution of clothes around the "washer bucket thingy" if you hear the bang bang bang again.

Hi..

If you washer is noisy,

  • Check that the water supply valves are turned on

Whirlpoool front end loader washing machine showing an f 06 error


The F/06 is:
Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

The tech. should check these:

Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check the Drive Motor
Check the MCU
Check the Wire Harness

My front loader was turned off during cycle because we had to leave house. upon returning we just started it back where we left off. upon entering the spin cycle it began to make a horrilbe banging noise,...


BUMMER. I would assume you shut it down during a spin and when it took off it got out of balance. Perhaps druing this it caused some damage.
I would start by unpluggin it for 1/2 hour..... and try it again... If it does then you'll need someone with some technical abilities to look inside at the mechanical parts and then electrical.
Good luck,
Shawn

During spin cycle washer spins fine but toward the end of the cycle it spins out of control like it is out of balance? Any help is greatly welcomed.


Some front loaders have a super high speed at the end of the spin. Front loaders don't like small loads, the laundry does not spread out evenly enough for a balanced spin.

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:


With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

Aquarius 1300 spin trips residual circiur breaker


Hello

There can be two possible reasons for it triping..

Firstly what im pretty sure it is, the motor... either your motor is faulty or your carbon brushes are worn... Im saying this because when the motor has to work at its hardest during the sping cylce it just cannot cope..

The other thing could be is that the drum has play within it and when spining quickly it is cathing the heating element probably already damaged it and therefore triping.

There your most likely faults

hope this helps.

The motor is located at the at the back on the bottom of the drum.
the heater is located at the back on the bottom of the drum .

Most likely is will not be the heater as it is more common on the older hotpoints.. But i thought id mention it

Hope this helps......
