SOURCE: Washing machine will not go thru it's spin cycle.

I just replaced the 4 rubber straps on the tub. Washed a load and it worked fine. Washed a second load and it did not spin on the rinse cycle. Checked the wiring on the switches. All OK. What do I check next. Did I mess up something around the tub ?

SOURCE: washing machine drum is very wobbly

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

SOURCE: Loud banging noise durning washing machine spin cycles.

First plug off the wall. Open the machine from behind to examine if any shock-absorbers(known as dampers) or springs have come off or broken. Your dealer could help with spares. But you could do the job yourself.

For spares: (which is good)

SOURCE: Washingmachine tub spins during the wash cycle

If it's a top loader it sounds like the spin pall on the transmission is stuck, which would mean new transmision

What causes my frigidaire top load washer to vibrate and make rattling noise during spin cycle

There are springs and bumpers/shocks in the machine that hold the tub. When they break or come loose, the tub wobbles.

Is this right ?

Yes, usually the tub inside a washing machine will wobble to some degree to allow operation when loads are slightly unbalanced during the spin cycle.

Top load ge washer wobbles on spin cycle when tub is empty

Have you purchased this washing machine recently or have you just moved house?
I'm wondering if you have left the transit bar in situ?
If it is an old machine you may have a worn rubber mounting bush or similar.
I'm not a domestic appliance engineer but have some mechanical backround knowledge.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.

The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

My washer makes a lot of noise while on the spin cycle

If the washload is not distributed evenly around the agitator when the final spin cycle starts, the tub will be unbalanced and will wobble and thump loudly. This is especially true if you are washing something heavy such as a rug or jeans. You may have to distribute the load more than once to get results.

My washing machine makes a very loud banging noise at the start and end of the spin cycle and there is a scraping sound throughout the cycle as though there is metal in the drum. What could be causing...

If you have an older machine it is the un-even load distribution in the wash tub. The wash is not evenly distributed in the wash tub. The wash tub don't spin evenly and wobble instead.

Washer tub wobbles, washer is level, on spin cycle the tub wobbles so bad it sounds like the tub is hitting the washer.

Sounds like a drum bearing problem , unless you are an engineer , suggest call service agent for estimate.

Maytag Neptune Tl washer

Mike, Sorry to hear that, is there any water around the clutch pulley?  With the front panel removed and you put the washer in a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket.  View the Clutch pulley turning CCW and see if is turning true with no wobble? Mine spun off twice before I got it seated properly, and it was in wobble mode until I got it seated properly.   With the water leak issue maybe you can view with the front panel off and a partial fill the leak source. You can always do a quick tub pump out in service mode. As you know unplug the 120VAC to the machine before you poke around in there.  Do you still have the original clutch?  Did you remove the plastic cover and inspect the roller bearings, clutch spring and coupler? Good luck and let’s see what you find. Rich
