SOURCE: dryer banging

Check the vibration damper rods. It is detecting an uneven load and stopping.

Hi, I have a frigidare affinity front load washing machine and when it is running a cycle it sounds like the drum is banging around in the machine. It's a new noise, did something come loose? What


Hello gen0313 - From what you are describing it sounds like the unit could possibly have a broken shock/bearing or damaged tub. A certified technician will need to accurately diagnosis the bearing and pulling system behind the drum for repairs.

Drum makes loud banging noise.


Maybe the heat in your dryer over time has melted weak glue and loose components are hitting against the drum

Washing machine was making a loud banging/tapping niose when the drum was spinning. It doesn't sound too good when turned manually. Is it the bearings and are they easy to fix?


banging may happen due to low load also, as cloths form a ball shape at one place.
otherwise it might be bearing or bearing housing. bearings are very difficult to replace as whole drum need to open. if bearing housing got loose in drum then drum needs replacement, also very costly.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer Banging During Spin Cycle


If the the drum feels loose in any way, there are three possible reasons:
1. The pulley nut has come loose. (easily repairable from the rear)
2. The bearing is bad (part of the rear tub).
3. The spinner has come loose from the basket (what you describe)

In cases 2 and 3, the entire drum/tub assembly will have to be removed, disassembled and repaired/replaced.

Check your owners manual for possible limited warranty. Contact Whirlpool for potential warranty repair concessions for case 3 if not covered under limited warranty.

Banging noise


You may have had a foreign object slip under a loose drum baffle. Manually rotate the drum to locate wwhich baffle it is in.
