Clunking banging noise


It may be something stuck in the drum, ie a bra wire, which would have extra weight on it whilst the clothes are wet. If this is the case, it will need looking at sooner, rather than later, as it will just be causing further internal damage

Drum seems loose and bangs all the while it is spinning. can move it side to side and front to back easily by hand. where should i look for the problem?


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

The washer makes a odd noise and tries to rotate the drum during the filling, wash and spin stages. The drum does not turn, the motor sounds like it is running, the pump runs, it fills with water, just no...

If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. If the belt is worn out or is loose or damaged then it will not turn the drum but make noise. so this can be an issue in your case.

I have a GE profile frontload washer that makes clunking noises when in spin cycle. I have replaced the shocks once already. Now taken apart, expecting shocks to be broke again, but they are intact. ...


Remove the front cover with a putty knife placed under the top of the front lid and pressing back on the left and right retaining springs.
Lift the front cover off the bottom retainer tabs.
Behind the motor you will see a counter weight being held by 1 bolt. The bolt has vibrated loose and needs to be tightened to hold the weight in a fixed position. I pulld the counter weight as far froward and guessed at what I thought was straight and tightened the bolt.
Run a short drain and spin cycle to see if everything seems balanced. If not to your satisfaction then readjust the weight. It may take a few times to get it right but it a hell of a lot better than paying a coulpe of hundred dollars to a repairman

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not


If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

The metal basket (inner basket) has a broken spider (these are the support brackets that hold the basket to the bearing shaft). The inner basket will need to be replaced and the front and rear shell of the drum may also need to be replaced depending if any other damage has been done. It's a big job, about 2 hours for a good tech.

Off balance, loose drum?


If your machine produces a lot of banging noises when in a permanent press final spin you may be experiencing a broken spider. It is a part which is not made from stainless steel metal, but attached to a stainless still drum (tub spin). So, when it is soaked in water all the time during a normal operation of a washer it creates a galvanic element between a stainless still drum and itself. This results in severe corrosion of the "spider" and then leads to it's breakage. To check if you have a broken "spider" open the door of the washer and try to kick your internal drum back and forward while rotating it slowly.If you will hear clicking noises (metal to metal) in some position of the drum it means that your spider is broken. The replacement of this spider will require complete disassemble of the drum. Most likely you will end up replacing this whole part
Drum assembly, spin basket Part # 131618500Another way is get just a spider part, it's doable, but may be tricky.
Cheers!

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.


I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken

Kenmore spin cycle thumping noises


I just went through the same issue with my Kenmore front loading washing machine. I assumed (and a Sears repairman also told me) that it is the bearings. After I took the drum assembly out, I saw the rear drum broken and the inner tub hitting the outer tub. I ordered the outer drum assembly and only when I took the inner drum assembly out I realized the the "Spider" attached to the inner drum (and spindle) was broken. Entire drum assembly cost $417 + shipping and it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new washer. I like the front loaders because they save water and good for the environment, but the US manufacturers have not yet perfected the technology like European manufacturers (or they don't want the machines to last too long just like cars). Anyway, I am looking into welding the spider tomorrow. If not will return the outer tub assembly and buy a top loading washer for $300!
