Question about Washing Machines
I suspect you have a broken weld or rivet between your inner tub and the brake, spider assembly, or drum shaft. If you reach into the drum when it is empty, and turn the drum by hand, see if you can hear the knocking noise from the middle of the back of the inner drum. If this is where the noise is coming from, your machine is not worth repairing. If the noise is coming from somewhere else, you could have something in your outer tub that is hitting the tub. Quite involved to get at on most models and highly unlikely anyway. If none of these help you, then get me the model number and brand and I will see what else could be the problem. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Could be a slow drain or clogged pump filter, the knocking could simply be a displaced damper.It all goes south if the water won't drain properly, that makes for some weird noises. Inpossible to know for sure without doing some checks. If you have an error posted then that will give a clue. Here are a few error codes:
1)Water fill problem: water too more than 10 minutes to
fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or
long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill.
2)Excessive vibration: noisy, knocking noises. bad damper,bearing or broken trunnion.
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment:
washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning
products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged
drain usually indicated a an LD/DE if a code is given
5)Drum overfilled: usually cased by sediment in the water
level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes keeping door from
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards
8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, turbidity monitors pick up
particles in the water and judge soil content then the
washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the
wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too
much and declares a suds error.
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken
wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Heating error, hE, the thermister/heater is out.
