Whirlpool WTW4900BW1 Washing Machine Loud Banging on spin cycle.

I have a Whirlpool WTW4900BW1 Washing machine. Recently purchased from an older couple who said it worked well with no problems. When I picked it up from them, I had to lay it down on its side in my SUV because it was too tall. Once we hooked it up, it works well. Fills properly, spins and drains properly. However, when the spin cycle starts there is a loud banging noise (sounds like tub is hitting outside washer case) It happens a few times, then stops and may do it again a few minutes later. It is very loud. There is also a slight grinding? sound when the washer is agitating but my wife thinks that part sounds normal. Just wanted to mention it in case it is related. I looked a little bit online and saw the suspension may be worn out. I checked to make sure they are all in place in the frame and on the outer tub, and they are. Not sure if the issue is from laying it down (which I probably shouldn't have done) or something else. Please help!

Transporting a washing machine in any position except upright can be fatal. The reason? The original packing material is no longer in place.

Hi,

Many late model washing machines use a direct-drive system to agitate and spin. They don't use belts or pressure wheels to transfer power and motion from the motor to the transmission. The motor is coupled directly to the transmission. If the motor is running and there is no agitation or spinning of the tub, the culprit is usually a plastic coupling between the motor and transmission or the transmission itself.

I have a two speed automatic whirlpool washing machine


It sounds like your motor coupling has broken. Normally the older the machine gets,the more wear and tear on the coupling. Order the coupling as per the model and gain access to the main motor. remove both clips holding motor then pull off broken pieces then install new kit.(easy to see how). Reinstall motor and retry. Done.
