Loud knocking sound when in wash cycle GEWDSR2080

Loud knocking sound when in wash cycle as if uneven load. I ran wash cycle without any clothes and it sounded normal. Tried small load ie socks underwear and it knocked loudly. It is level. Can I access without taking off bottom ie open front? Belt appears okay but loose. Last person to use machine, my daughter when I was gone, it made knocking sound, but she said she re aligned clothes in basket and it worked normally. Kids gotta love them.

After taking off the front cover, look up at the top of the tub just under the lid. there should be a thick rubber strap at each corner of the machine tying in the tub to the top. These are called dampening straps. One or more may be broken. I usually replace all four if I do one.

What is causing the loud, clunky sound on the wash cycle


ck your basket suspension points some time they break or slack up to allow basket to bump outside casing to make loud noises (you'll need a strong flashlight and a hand mirror to do this ) most modern machines have a feature that redistributes the load if basket gets shaking too much , this might be cause of unevenness you see in load

Knocking noice in agitation cycle


Do you get same sound if you run through a wash cycle empty (no clothes?) using detergent? If so, then likely a basket support has come loose (check deep inside along top ring). If not, then you may be overloading washer (unless using different sized loads), or the agitator is not working like it should, and basket is torquing.

Making loud knocking/clunking sound in the wash cycle.


i have the same problem. the transmission/brake assembly is worn out. the stopping and starting problem... I have that too, that was a dry solder joint on the circuit board. i found it because if I pressed on the area of the panel to the left of the cycle select knob, it would shut off immediately. I soldered it back up and it's fine. Still working on fixing the transmission problem, the parts store wants 300 bucks for the part but looking at the GE website, the tranny might be under extended warranty.

It turns out that there was a sock stuck within the pump in the washing machine. I removed the back cover and removed all the excess water, because once the sock was removed, the water was free to escape. I just removed the hose that connects to the pump and felt the sock, and was able to remove it. Once I hooked everything back up, the washing machine ran great.

Loud Knocking


this is a collapsed drum bearing, one of the most costly of the repairs apart from the timer and motor, not normally a job for the diy man unless has an engineering background, sorry, the cost of repair depends on the age and replacement cost of a machine, a bit like a car, would you buy an engine for a 20 year old car, if you have a machine thats expensive then the repair could be worth it? stop running it you will cause more damage both to the clothes and the machine sorry (ps i am a retired appliance engineer of 20 years service)

Loud noise while agitating in wash cycle


If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.
