The banging is most likely caused by failing shock absorbers ( there are two plastic shock absorbers inside the back cover that usually keep the tub from thrashing around. It is not unusual for these to fail). Get someone to remove the back cover plate - essentially the one piece back plate held on by screws- and (carefully) view the machine in motion. The shock absorbers are the white 1" 'sticks' on either side of the drum. One or both may be broken or lost their dampening capability. These are reasonably easily replaced (DIY) and cost about $35-$55 online for a pair. You can take each one out and inspect it to confirm it is damaged or doesnt dampen motion.

There are lots of places to leak from and viewing the leak while the machine is operating is the best approach. Again , you can do this from the back if you take off the metal panel. Be careful and you can turn the timer to individual steps in the cycle to speed up the isolation of the problem, and turn it off when appropriate.
Another way to find the leaking problem if the amount of water is small, is to push a piece of newspaper under the front of the washing machine all the way to the back. Then keep pulling it out during the cycles and see where on the paper the leak is (front, sides, back, center, etc). This can be done without moving the washer and will provide insight into what component is leaking.
You should also feel around the external water hose connections to see if they are dripping... this is usually the #1 cause and is easily fixed by tightening the hose connector.

Very loud banging noise when spinning

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

Maytag Neptune model # mah6500aww: makes banging noise and causes machine to move

A loud banging sound in the pipes is usually caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The banging happens as the water hits the valve that prevents it from going any further. If the kinetic energy is great enough, it can actually cause a pipe to burst or explode at the end. If a valve is closed near the beginning or in the middle of a system, the water keeps flowing after that point, and it can actually create a vacuum. This vacuum can cause a pipe to implode if the stress is too great. Roaring type noises may be coming from a spin bearing. This bearing probably had the grease washed from it because of a tub seal leak.
Squeaking sounds in a new washer are usually caused by the new parts getting broken in, and will usually go away after several washes.
The sounds of water gurgling, slurping, or sloshing during a spin cycle are usually caused by the drain pump pushing the water out of the washer tub.
Too much water pressure can cause a whistling or squealing sound. Adjust the hot and cold intake water valves to relieve this sound.
Metallic clinking sounds during spin or agitation may be the result of drive train components meshing during speed changes or after a pause.
Swishing or swooshing type of sounds may be caused by water and suds trapped between the tub and basket during a spin cycle, and will usually clear up as the water is drained from the washer

Indesit washer-dryer wd125 manual


I've been looking for these instructions and have just stumbled across them . Just inside the door there should be a barcode. On the top right check the model no. mine is WD 12S, despite the model no on the outside being WD125.

If so, look here

First of all, what kind of a loud is it making?  Is it a loud squeak, clunk, bang, or jet engine sound?


If it is a loud jet engine sound, then your tumbler bearing is wearing out.  You could try oiling it, but [probably you will have to replace it.  It’s a big job and even if you do it yourself, the best and easiest way to do it is expensive.


I recommend first of all ordering a repair manual.  Or at least see if the parts come with detailed instructions on how to take out the old bearing and install the new.  You will probably have to replace the entire outer drum assembly.  It's much more expensive in parts to do it that way than to just replace the bearings and seals, but much much easier and faster.  Personally, I've replaced the entire drum assembly and also tried to replace just the bearings and seals.  In the end I wasted the money on the bearings and seals and got an new assembly.  I'd recommend just going for the new assembly and saving time.

Irregular banging during cycle

these washers are a swine to dis-assemble and i would not recommend it unless you are experienced. on most indesit, the bearings are in a spider bolted to the outside of the tub. take the back off and see if you can localise the noise to the bearings worthwhile also taking the heater out (one nut in the middle), peer in and check no foreign object causing the noise
