Washing machine - knocking sound at end of cycles

A loud knocking sound is heard at the end of cycles. Whatever makes the tub stop at the end of a cycle, it has a loud knocking sound. Not sure if something is broken or loose or what. Can a simple person fix it, or do I need to hire an appliance repairman?

Actually by the sounds of it, you have a top loader. simply apply a small portion of grease to the brake drum and this will take the severity off when stopping. if you dont do this incidently, eventually your coupling will break.

Hi there is it a top loader or front? If a front loading machine it might be the concrete block has come loose under the top cover.

Thanks J

Washing machine knocks and dims lights only during rinse cycle


Possible that the bearings are a suspect, if the machine seems to wobble around. Also if the load is high, does the noise go higher, if so check the suspension, check the mounting and the counter weights.
Please check this link: Wobbling machine

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.

Washing machine startee knocking loudly on spin cycles


this is usually an indication that your tub is off balance you need to stop the cycle let is come to a stand still and once it has stopped spinning then shift the clothes around to evenly distribute them. or remove some as it may be over filled and will not wash well if it is over filled. off balance can also mean over full so if it continues to knock then remove some items until it stops knocking

Loud knocking sound when in wash cycle GEWDSR2080


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.

Loud knocking sound


You have a bad drive block. This block is located under the inner tub. A special spanner wrench is required to remove the tub. You really need to call a service tech for this repair.

Machine knocks and walks when spinning a small load


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
-----------------------
The problem is the brake. The odd time what happens is moisture gets on thebrake rotor and the squealing is heard when the brake stator is applied to stop the tub from spinning. This moisture, may drip down from the tub onto the brake rotor which could indicate a leaky tub seal. If you can't see any dripping when you fill the tub with water, don't worry about the tub seal. Many times than not the brake is just going sour on it's own.
Sometimes you can fix the squealing by cleaning the rotor and stator with a light sandpaper, such as emery/sand cloth. If that doesn't work you will need to replace the brake stator and rotor. If you need to replace them replace both parts together, don't just change the stator without also replacing the rotor, or vice versa. And here's a bonus tip: the brake spring exerts 200 pounds of force. If you try to remove the six 5/16" screws without using this brake removal tool, serious injury can/could happen!! The splined part in the middle of the brake needs to be greased really good before putting the brake back on!

Kenmore Washing Machine 82110 - Loud Noise


could be the brakes, if the loud noise is like a screech probably your brake rotor and lining need replacing.

This sounds like the brakes have gotten some residue on them and are grabbing way too hard. The banging is the tub stopping too fast and the torque from this makes the tub bang into the cabinet. Just one bang at the end of a spin. Is this correct???
