If your machine model is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW the issue may get worse. Have you taken any dc or UC errors in the spin cycle at any part of the wash cycle? If so you are experiencing a failure of the One-Way roller clutches, Just confirm the model number of your machine and I will expand on my post and what a possible solution will be for you.

Hi,
It is a phenomenon called resonance.
Whenever the natural frequency of your sink unit is equal to the disturbing frequency (rpm of the spin cycle of the washing machine) the sink resonates.
It happens only at particular speed of spinning and vanishes with change in speed.
Nothing to worry about and is common. sort of sounds like the spray arm is loose. In your befuddled poking around, perhaps you pulled the lower spray arm out and ran it but, lo, it still makes the noise when washing. You don’t hear the noise during the drain cycle.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Washer won't spin after rinse cycle


Hello Dorothy - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.

At the end of each spin cycle it knocks loudly


A Clothes Washer with the complaint of "excessive noise & sssshaking" can typically be a couple of things;

Un-level Washer (Very Likely) - I would level and adjust your legs on your washer appropriately. Make sure when your slighly "push test" your washer, you have no machine movement, rocking or tilting. When the machine is going into the final rinse/spin cycle, the tub can rotate fast and if the washer legs or even the floor is slightly un-level, this can result in your washer to become noisey, shake, etc and can further cause the unit to break-down and no longer spin.

Un-balanced Load (Likely) - Ensure you are loading the washer and distributing the clothes (weight) evenly as this may cause the tub to spin improperly at final spin cycle.

Broken Drum Support/Springs (Likely) - Can be 5" black supports located at inside - top of tub area. Also, springs can also be located at inside bottom rear of machine holding the tub to the rear panel.
