There are shocks inside the machine that damper the vibration, one or more has failed, they can be replaced if you are a good do it your self er, if u have to pay to fix it replace not worth the cost of repair. the repair requires taking off all the panels to access the inside. and check cost of dampers and compare to cost versus replacement

Why does Miele w2515 makes loud banging noise when it is about to spin?


See if you can level out the unit. Sound like the case is responding to un-even pressures.

Loud banging noise during spin cycle


If you balanced the machine, the only other problem could be the load itself. Either the load is too great or if washing a single item its falling to one side, tilting the drum and when spinning it will thump. Try even lodes.

On the spin cycle the washer starts banging & making a lot of noise


Reach inside drum and see if it moves at all when you lift up and down on it or side to side and maybe makes a noise. If so you must have the drum and the rear of the outer tub replaced.

When it gets to spin cycle it move all over the placy bang into wall ????


Check to see if the machine is level and all the 4 legs are making good contact with the floor. If the machine is level, check to see if the machine spins freely. Open the door and check the drum. It should be hang straight in the opening. Spin the drum by hand and listen for any strange noises. It should spins quietly without any banging noises. If that check out, remove the lower access cover and look at the wash drum. There are two shock absorbers. If they look damaged, they will need to be replaced.

Hello my wft653a - wont spin like to use to now it makes a unbalance noise and the clothes are still very wet after the spin cycle - it is still going through the motions just making a banging unbalance...


I suggest you begin by checking the washtub suspension.

The washtub is suspended by a number of springs and dampers and it isn't unusual for one or more to break.

Washing Machine Moves in Spin Cycle


There are 2 things you can do.
All washing machines have an off balance shut off, some are touchy, some let it run around the house. With wht machine empty, lean it towards you, on the 2 front feet, about 2 or 3 inches and let it drop. The self leveling feet in the rear must BOTH make good floor gontact and sometimes, just the weight of the machine will not adjust them. The other thing is, make sure the load is evenly distributed. Coats, blankets, small rugs etc. are very heavy when wet and they tend to throw all of the weight to one side.
There is no screw holding the yub in place. It hangs on the center post, where the agitator goes. There is however, what's called a snubber. It is a rubber device that looks like a flattened suction cup, that comes in contact with the tub. It helps keep the tub from jumping around too much.
