There is probably a loose scew on one of the 3 drum baffles, and it hits the cabinet as it turns. Just remove the 4 screws inside the door frame and pull both sides of the front panel toward you (pull from the top of each side of the front panel). Then lift the panel from the bottom brackets and set it aside. Remove the 2 screws holding the top down (one on each side, they atatch a green bracket that holds the top). Then hinge the top up. Rotate the drum by hand until you see which screw is sticking out and tighten it. make sure all 6 baffle screws are tight while you have it apart. Put it back togather, plug it in, and your done.

Maytag neptune front loading washer

What is the model # of your machine???? The loud banging noise sounds like the loads were getting unbalanced. This is the most likely since i have no problems with the suspension all of a sudden not stabilizing tub properly. If the washer was moved or transported than that would make more sense to me. please provide as much info as you can. Try doing a load of 10 towels. Let me know how that does and with the model # i can help with pulling some diagnostic codes

Have a trcity bendix washing machine and during a wash it was making a loud baning noise from the drum when spinning . i went to look and there was smoke coming from the back of it and out of drawer . it...

It sounds as if the bearings have gone or something as serious that needs inspecting.This machine would have the normal 5 year major parts warranty and they would offer a repair but you would pay the call out and labour.Hope this helps.

Loud Fan

Yes, fans are somewhat the bane of these new TV technologies. With all the mechanical and optical stuf in them now, TV's are a lot less reliable than the good-ole CRT type.
Fans are easy to replace though.

Loud banging noise

some popping noise is normal but if it is banging when it stops it needs a new compressor.what has happened is one or more motor mount is broken or weak it could run like this for months or years but it is annoying! if its warranty they have to replace it.
