Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Knocking during wash and spin cycle


I woulds let a repairman look at your machine. Your rubber dampers are broken and your machine will shake itself to bits if you don't address this problem.

My Westinghouse lt908s washing machine has started bundling clothes up and knocking sides of machine. Even after opening lid and redistributing load evenly it keeps spinning then bundles up load and knocks...


May be a problem with agitator gear box,open on wash cycle and use screwdriver to by pass cut off switch by pushing screwdriver down on little switch that is located where tab on lid is.If agitator is traveling at too much of a rotation that may be cause,also agitator mat be lose if you can grab and move up and down.Then remove cap on top of agitator and tighten bolt,if lose if not agitator may need to be replaced!

Washing machine startee knocking loudly on spin cycles


this is usually an indication that your tub is off balance you need to stop the cycle let is come to a stand still and once it has stopped spinning then shift the clothes around to evenly distribute them. or remove some as it may be over filled and will not wash well if it is over filled. off balance can also mean over full so if it continues to knock then remove some items until it stops knocking

Loud knocking sound when in wash cycle GEWDSR2080


After taking off the front cover, look up at the top of the tub just under the lid. there should be a thick rubber strap at each corner of the machine tying in the tub to the top. These are called dampening straps. One or more may be broken. I usually replace all four if I do one.

Making loud knocking/clunking sound in the wash cycle.


i have the same problem. the transmission/brake assembly is worn out. the stopping and starting problem... I have that too, that was a dry solder joint on the circuit board. i found it because if I pressed on the area of the panel to the left of the cycle select knob, it would shut off immediately. I soldered it back up and it's fine. Still working on fixing the transmission problem, the parts store wants 300 bucks for the part but looking at the GE website, the tranny might be under extended warranty.

Loud Knocking


this is a collapsed drum bearing, one of the most costly of the repairs apart from the timer and motor, not normally a job for the diy man unless has an engineering background, sorry, the cost of repair depends on the age and replacement cost of a machine, a bit like a car, would you buy an engine for a 20 year old car, if you have a machine thats expensive then the repair could be worth it? stop running it you will cause more damage both to the clothes and the machine sorry (ps i am a retired appliance engineer of 20 years service)
