My washer mad three loud thumps and then would not spin at all. It will pump the water out but will not spin. Do you think it is the belt. Thanks helyn

The belt might have slipped off the pulley. But when you mention that you heard loud thumps before it stopped spinning is a sign that something else might have gone wrong with your machine. With the washer turned off, turn the wash drum by hand and listen for any noises. It should turn quietly without any kind of thumping noises. Also look how the drum turns. It should turn smoothly and not wobble as it turns. If it wobbles or makes thumpiing noises, it means that the support arms are broken.

Reparing the support arms is an expensive repair, unless it is still under warranty, it not worth fixing. Get a few estimates before deciding to repair or replace it.

My truck makes a loud thump from the front on the passenger side.

Most likely you have worn out suspension parts. A front shock could cause the problem because the rubber bushing holding it in place may have dried up and fell out. Upper and lower A-arms have rubber bushings as well.
Best to have the front suspension checked out before it gets worse.

I have a sears roebuck hd model 92279100 it will do everything but spin. We used to be able to lift up on the agitator and it would spin, but it won't do it now.

sounds like you have a bad drive block and basket drive you will have to remove the agetator to see the drive block. under the agetator there will be 2 small peices remove those. After that you will be able to see the drive block and basket drive ears. there are 2 slots that the basket drive fit into. if there are metal shavings and it does not look flush with something. this would be your problem. spin the drum and see what happens in that area. Have you ever heard a sound like thump thump thump? when it was spinning or slowing down? please let me know how it goes

Whirlpool ultimate care II tub has a flat spot while spinning

this sounds like you have a worn tub drive block. you will have to remove the cabinet and then the tub cover, agitator and then tub nut. the nut is large and has a special spanner wrench to remove it, but you might be able to remove the nut with a large pliers or pipe wrench. the nut is cheap, usually about 7-10 bucks, but it is hard to get to and it will ruin the basket drive shaft if you let it go too long. so best to fix as soon as you can or it will cost alot more to replace both the block and the basket drive.

Loud noise in slow down spin mode.

when it is in high spin then you stop the washer it makes a thumping noise until the basket stops sort of like a flat tire sounds to me like you need a drive block

Pav2300aww spinning very slow,and not draining

In all these Cases it sounds like a faulty lip seal. These special seals have Sealed bearings inside. Water gets through the seal and into the bearing which causes it to thump (like a helicopter) or squeal very loudly. As far as draining, the machine has to reach a curtain speed before the pump can turn fast enough to work.
