This just happened to us this morning. Our washer is only 7 years old! Buy a new washer. That's what we're going to have to do.

Like the other guy says, the spider or tripod is broken. I don't know that a shop can repair this or not. The drum comes from the factory with the tripod attached and is not sold apart. Often when the spider goes, parts of the weld end up on the drain and could shatter the pump impeller. If you let it run this way, you will damage and break the shocks. The drum is $250 new. While the machine is apart, check the bearing. It is worth replacing anyway, just because you have it all apart. Check and clean the drain, pump and shocks. New shocks are $40 a set, the pump is another $100 if these parts go bad. Might just go out an buy a new machine. The labor on one of these jobs will take you all day to disassemble, get the parts, and reassemble.

Most likely this is a big problem just happens with front loading wash machine and the bearings in the rear are beginning to go bad and you can hear the loud noises most of the time this is not worth getting fixed and less by chance that water I would almost guarantee that this is a Samsung or an LG model let me know if I'm correct also you can see on eBay some videos of I'll send you a link SAMSUNG FRONT LOUD WASHER LOAD NOISES YouTube

I have an Indesit washing machine and when it get to a fast spin cycle it sounds like it is washing a load of rocks. It is very loud. It doesn't seem to do this when the drum is turning slowly.

It soumds to me like the main drum bearings have failed.
From the front of the washer, put your hand inside the drum and spin it round, it should be noise free, if it feels rough or is grating or rumbling, then the bearings have failed.
This is quite a big and involved repair to undertake.

Sounds like bearings are shot, makes loud noises on fast spin. is it a big job to change bearings?

If you believe it is a bearing then the answer is no unless you don't have the proper tools. Second of all did you check if your machine is mis-align and rubbing to make that noise. Just a suggestion before you tear into the machine. Good Luck

I have a kenmore front load washer model 970-c42072. I'm experiencing a loud noise in the drum on the spin cycle even when it is empty no matter what setting (slow normal fast) What would be the...

If you turn the inner wash drum by hand, what kind of noise do you hear? If it is a thumping kind of noise, it would mean that the spider support arms are broken. If the noise is a loud rumbling sound, similar to a jet engine when it is spinning, it would mean that you have a bearing seal failure and the bearings need to be replaced. Either problem is a big job to fix since the entire washer needs to be taken apart. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing. Sorry.

It has begun to make a loud knocking noise when on fast spin, what could be the problem?

Its very possible that the load you have in the washer was too big, you had too many clothes in there. That or you had something heavy like shoes or something in there or while washing your load got off balance (clothes shifted to one side) and thats what started the knocking.
