Ensure that the machine is on a level surface with equal weight on the four legs. There are adjustable feet on these machines so as to balance the load on each support. These supports are adjustable by twisting them clockwise/anti-clockwise to get the correct balance.

Check to make sure your clothes are not causing the unbalanced issue.

### Why does Miele w2515 makes loud banging noise when it is about to spin?

See if you can level out the unit. Sound like the case is responding to un-even pressures.

### Lg fuzzy logic

Could be problems with the waste pump which could be at the bottom of the machine behind a flap. The fact that if you give the machine a thump and it starts working, could indicate it has a loose wire which can be extremely dangerous as it could short out to the washing machine casing. Or the motor has simply got dirt around the comm. (internals on the motor). If you have been spinning unevenly balanced clothes and the machine has had a bit of a jump around, then it is likely to be a wire. I have repaired washing machines which have had this very problem where the drum has been bang bang bang in spin mode and actually rubbed right through to bare wire on badly placed wires which were not harnessed out of dangers way. Alway disconnect from mains first before looking....electricity kills, especially I the presence of water. Good luck

### My whirlpool top loader bangs around during final spin

Hi,

Kindly provide few details :-

1. Make and model of the washer?
2.How old the washer is?
3. Is it banging only at high speed or even on slow speed?
4. Is it only during the final spin or all the time during spin?
5. If you move the drum by hand, is there any noise? Could you turn the drum easily?

Thanks!!

### Loud banging noise when machine goes into spin mode. sounds like it is banging on the side. Please help !

Usually this is an out-of-balance condition caused by too much weight on one side of the tub, move the clothes around and try again.

This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.
