You may have to lift the lid and rebalance the wet clothes inside
make sure that the machine is level and the bowl supports or in good condition as an off level bowl will go to unbalance on start of spin

Wash machine won't spin all the time and makes a loud banging noise.


Check to make sure that your clothes are not piled to one side causing the load to be off-balance. If that does'nt fix it then, It may be that your machine has a balance stabilizer on it that has worked its way loose or even off.

On the spin cycle, it makes a banging noice, rythmic, about 2 per second....only on the spin cycle... can you help???


The spin cycle is used to rid the water by centrifugal force. As the tub spins, the water iis forced out of the clothes. The banging noise comes from the weight of clothes being on one side making the load unbalanced. The machine will absorb some minor unbalancing. If it gets real loud & the machine starts dancing, shut the machine off by raising the lid, when tub stops, rearrange clothes.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Loud banging noise during spin cycle of my front loading kenmore


If you spin the drum by hand, does it make any kind of thumping or banging noise? If it does, then you probally have a broken spider arm(s). This is very expensive to repair, unless you are handy, it may not be worth fixing. The link below shows the problem and how it can be fixed.

Zannusi fl 1082 very loud banging noise when spinning


This is most likely due to an unbalanced load. The drom on the washer is only mounted at the bottom and if your load is heavy on one side, when it spins, the centrifigual force will make the inner drum hit the outer and bang. When you hear this happenning, open the lid, drag some of the wet items from the heavy side to the light side and close the lid again. The banging should go away. If you want to see what is happenning (though you MUST BE CAREFUL when doing this), activate the spin with the lid open by suing a stick or small screwdriver to press on the switch that is normally depressed by a post on the lid. The unit will 'think' the lid is closed and will resume its cycle. You should see the major wobble during the spin. NEVER PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE WASHER WHILE IT IS MOVING>

Vibration of wash machine


Hi!

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Kenmore 80 Series washing machine - loud banging at end of spin


With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.

Basket drive block part number is 389140

If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further.
Good luck!

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
