Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.

Your shock absorbers are problably broken and need to be replaced. Take off the bottom inspection panel by removing the 2 screws on the bottom of the panel and pull the piece down and out. Then take a look inside the machine in the bottom middle on both sides. There should be a shock absorber on each side and these are plastic. Check to see if they are broken at either end and if they are, go to your local appliance repair shop and buy/order a new pair. The new ones are slightly upgraded by making the body out of metal and the rest out of plastic. Instalation instructions come in the package as well as a pair of new absorbers. Hope this helps.

my first suggestion is to get your money together cuz either way it's gonna cost alot. Touch the drum in side the washer and check to see if it moves around. If it does then you probably need a new drum and bearing job which is usually pretty pricey to repair. It an overhaul of your washer.

My MAH9700 Front Loader washer is shaking a lot and making a loud banging noise when spinning.


unscrew the 4 screws inside the detergent dispenser and lift the top and see if the counterweight on the tub is loose,otherwise it may be the drum bearings going bad on the inner drum

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.
