On the spin cycle, it makes a banging noice, rythmic, about 2 per second....only on the spin cycle... can you help???


The spin cycle is used to rid the water by centrifugal force. As the tub spins, the water iis forced out of the clothes. The banging noise comes from the weight of clothes being on one side making the load unbalanced. The machine will absorb some minor unbalancing. If it gets real loud & the machine starts dancing, shut the machine off by raising the lid, when tub stops, rearrange clothes.

Samsung J845 washing machine will not spin.


could be the dampers have failed or the drum mount is broken, try a spin with no clothes, if it is spinning with noise or the drum is not running true it will need major repairs.

Loud noise during spin cycle and agitator won't rotate


the machine is nknown to have bad main seals, in turn leading to the corrosion of the spin bearing, in which case makes it sound as if a helicopter is landing in your laundry room

Vibrating Washing Machine


How long have you owned this unit? If it is new I would look in back for yellow straps and yank them out as they are shipping straps, If it is old I would get it to that point of dancing and stop the machine and check for water in the basket. If this doesn't get it I would pull the machine out and tilt it back and look at the four springs supporting the tub to make sure they are attached especially the one in the back that goes tub to frame. If it is an old but faithful machine suddenly acting this way I suspect basket alignment from a corroded block drive, damaged agitator and holding the lid switch so you can watch the spin will pin point this problem. Another is slow spin from a worn timer leaving water in the clothes, you would know because the clothes wouldn't spin out 100% of the water. Finally older machine can get a sledgy deposit in the back bottom of the tub close to the center causing a unbalance usually marked by a smelly machine that leaves black marks and spots on clothes. Please get back after you have this food for thought.

Maytag LAT2500AAE- unbalanced


see if it has 4 adjustable feet on each corner on the bottom
get a bubble level from a hardware store and turn the feet to raise or lower OR you could use something else to raise the sides until it is leveled by looking at the bubble level.

hope this helps
thanks for your rating

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
