The concrete weight block attached to front of drum has broken loose and i want to know if this can be re-fixed. How do I get the front off the machine, or does the machine need to be lifted up from the casing, or dropped down? Can I get a new block, or should I just scrap it?

I advise you to remove the motor, and check the brushes in the motor, and check for loose or broken wires at trhe same time.
If brushes o/k, then it is probably going to be something more serious.
This being the case, then it could faulty programmer or similar.
Hope this helps.
Check that the washer is level , and that there is no movement on it.
Make sure you have not overloaded it.
An out of balance load could cause problem , especially if you had something heavy or extra large in it..
A loose concrete balance weight., or suspension spring unhooked or broken..
Not draining properly ,check filter if there is one usually at front behind removable cover at bottom.
Plz rate my solution.
sounds like a balance problem may be when the drum was replaced they didn't fit the new drum in the correct spot the other thing that would cause load banging and excessive vibrations in the machine is if the shockers are worn out, believe it our not even washing machines have shockers to dampen the movement of the drum spinning
Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
It is repairable but will take about 3 -4 hours (if you know what your doing) and the parts will cost about 65% of what a new machine will cost. You need to weigh up how old the machine is and or if its "beyond economical repair"
