The basket that the clothes sit in that spins in the washer is off center and banging loudly when it spins. It sounds like a helicopter. What is the problem? How can I fix it?

Why is my fridgidaire top loading washer so loud?


You didn't say when it was making the loud noise. During the wash cycle or spin cycle? An unbalanced washer will make a loud racket, too many clothes or actually not enough will make the basket bang around in there. If it has a center agitator, make sure it is tightened down. The screw is under the center Fabric Softener cup. That's the easy stuff to check. Now on mine, when you take the front panel off, I noticed that the hooks and springs that hold the basket up & in place and help keep it balanced, had actually over time had worn the round holes in the metal construction of the machine to oblong holes. Not much you can do about that. If the noise is coming from the motor, & you can't find a used cheap one, it would be more cost efficient to just use as long as you can and buy another machine. A loud noise could also be caused by a bad pulley. Hope this helps.

Our Crosley washing machine (Model # CW5000W) will not spin all the water out of the clothes and is making a bad noise while it spins.


Three possibilities here,

One, you've overloaded the washer with clothes, throwing the washer basket on tilt because of the extra weight and force against the agitator. Remove the wet clothes from the washer and try continuing the cycle.

Two, One of the elastic/spring arms that centers the basket inside the washer housing has broken and is allowing the basket to simply flop around. Disassemble the washer and inspect the basket supports.

Three, The center post that the washer basket sits on is going bad - The most common reason is that the bearings have gone bad. Disassemble the washer and replace the bearings at the base of the basket where it connects to the motor.

I have a FAV6800AWC Top Load Maytag Neptune When in spin cycle you cannot keep it balanced, makes a banging soud (loud) and kickes washer off


Hi,

It sounds like the spin basket rear support is loose. The support is part of the spin basket & does not come separately. This type of repair will more than likely need the spin basket replaced & possibly the outer tub also. It will cost you $200-300 to replace the assembly.

Hope this helps.

Maytag HAV4657EWW tub bangs during spin


This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

Banging while spinning and disintegrating gasket


Most likely not the drum bearing on this one.

I believe that your inner basket support has failed. It's a common problem on 4+ year old duet washers. This is by far the most labor intensive repair that can be done on the duet washer. You will need to tear down the machine for this repair. Expect it to be a four to eight hour job depending on your level of skill.

The basket is under lifetime warranty. The new basket will come w/the basket support already attached to it. Stupid as it sounds, You can't buy the bolt-on basket support alone, You need the entire basket! wtf?

The front section of the outer tub is supposed to have a 10yr warranty. Being that the tub was damaged by the basket, They may or may not warranty the parts.

Do a search on fixya. There is a guy from MA that has a complete set of pictures and info on the rotted/broken basket support.

Drum Speed - Unstable


The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn. When these components are worn-they prevent the drum from spinning freely, and usually you hear a loud sound during the spin mode.
