Its very possible that the load you have in the washer was too big, you had too many clothes in there. That or you had something heavy like shoes or something in there or while washing your load got off balance (clothes shifted to one side) and thats what started the knocking.

SOURCE: loud knocking noice around drum area when on final spin.

This is not an unusual problem for washers, but how to eliminate or reduce it would help to know what brand and model. Sometimes it is the balance ring that sits atop the inner drum, or it could be the antivibrate friction pads that are too worn (they are diffierent on each brand), or could be the balance springs at the bottom of the tub assembly ( there are 3 or 4 springs and one could be broke), or could be the balance (suspension) cables that appear in some brands and the cables or pulley wheels are not in line or are worn/broke.
Goodluck, Macgivor

Thanks for the model number but need the make as well to use the model number to research problems with the machine associated with this noise you have, it would save time to know if this is a front loading machine as well.

Loud noises during spin cycles


Hello, If the noise is a squealing or grinding sound, you are likely looking at a bad seal and bearing.
If the noise is a knocking sound, it's more likely a suspension or out of balance condition.
Thanks

When on a fast spin it is extremely loud, too loud...


Water in bearings causes rust, and rust in bearings creates noise...This is the most likely reason for the noisy spin....Check for any slop in inner drum....Bearings and seals and likely the shaft probably need to be replaced....Quite a big and complex job....Good luck....Nomess

Spinning cycle has become very noisy on fast spin


Hi
The most common cause of this is the main drum bearing seal has failed and water has washed all the grease out of the drum bearing and knackered it. You will hear a loud roaring noise on the fast spin when this has happened. As it's certainly not a 5-minute-job, it's not economic to have this fault repaired on an older machine if you are paying for the repairs yourself. Get a new machine.
It is fairly unusual for balance weights to come loose as they are usually held tight by locking nuts. I've seen it happen but not very often. Sometimes they break off the drum completely. Symptoms of this are loud knocking noises, the machine attempting to leave the building while on a fast spin and a heavy piece of metal/concrete on the floor under the machine!
