Hello,
When it was fitted did the installer remove the transit bolts from the rear of the machine because it sounds as if it has done damage to the drum and housing when it went into a spin.
Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Whats wrong with Dryer


The drum slides at the front are made of felt. Yours have worn away. The drum is banging up and down. If you open the door you will find that you can lift and lower the drum. If you drop the drum, you will hear it bang. They are easy to replace if you can get the front off the machine.

It could also be that the rear drum bearing is worn, but that doesn't normally make a banging noise. It is a metal spindle attached to the drum into a nylon sleeve in the back of the machine.

I have a front load washer by Kleenmaid KFL800. I heard a bang and then smelt burning so I think it has blown up but I can't get my washing out cause the door will not open. Can anybody please hel


As a general rule if you unplug from the mains power the solenoid that keeps the door locked will de energise and the door will be able to be opened but careful there could be plenty of water waiting to help wash your feet!

Wsher will not spin at end of cycle, tries to and stops. there was a loud bang in the previous load. drum will spin but tight. What to check kenomre 417-44142400


Hi stevensch693,

The loud bang you most likely heard is the capacitor of the motor, it has blown.

Open the washing machine up, look for the following component near the main motor:

You will need to replace this component. Be very carefull when disconnecting it, as it may still give you a nasty shock.

You can find these at any appliance spares shop or even hardware outlet. Note the number on it, if requesting a emplacement - even better, take it with when purchasing one.

Kind Regards

My kenmore elite washer has a very loud banging noise when it spins


U will need to remove the washer drum and check the washer drum stablizers and the washer drum bearing, do this to see what is wrong and how far u need to go in this repair.First open the door and spin the inner tub to make sure the tub spins freely, if not you have big problems.

If it does then remove the lower front panel. There are 3 screws along the very bottom of this panel that you can remove and then the panel will come off. Check to make sure the shocks are not cracked or broken under the tub. If not and the unit just recently started shaking a lot, then replace the shocks as they are probably worn out. If it's been shaking since the day you've gotten it and it just seems to have gotten a little worse, then purchase Shake Away pads which are specifically designed for front load washers to sit under the feet of the washer and reduce vibration dramatically.
