If you put your hand palm up on the lip of the inner drum and lift then drop is there a lot of movement before the weight of the tub comes on?

If there is a lot of movement (slack drum) then the most likely cause is bearing failure.

Push down on the inner drum and swing it from side to side, does it feel or sound rough?

If yes, this confirms bearing failure.

The clicking noise, if you spin the inner drum does it make a rythmic click?

Unplug the appliance from the wall socket, drag the machine out and take the rear panel off. Take the belt off and spin the drum again, has the clicking noise disappeared?

If it does then there is most likely a raised segment on the motor armature, this is not repairable and would require a replacement motor.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Auto washing machine drum vibrates makes loud noise

When machine is empty use fingers to try and move drum side to side. Is there excessive movement? 2 to 3 mm is ok. If drum moves to much it will be the drum bearings. Easy fix for an engineer or competent diyer. Millions of how to videos on utube.

Machine makes a clicking nkind of noise when i try to start a programme then does nothing

Assuming you washer is a front load type, does the drum spin freely, and do you hear any noise when spinning the drum with the power off.

Frigidaire front loading washing machine will not do final spin

If you cannot manually turn the tub when it is off, and not in use, then the motor and transmission is possibly seized. If you can turn it with no issue or noise, then the control is not communicating correctly to the unit.

Washing machine travels during the spin cycle

Hi - Try to rotate the drum when it is not in use, manually and see if you notice the sound as well. If you do the drum is not balanced and you would need a professional technician to diagnose the bearing and pulley system behind the drum for repairs.

Makes a clicking noise in spin cycle and sometimes white smoke from back and in drum

Check for the following-1) the drum bearing. If the seal starts allowing water to enter. Try taking off the belt and spin the drum by hand. If it rumbles replace the bearings
2) Check for coin, bra wires or such small objects 3) Also check if the machine is place properly levelwise

My washing machine makes a loud banging noise wen it reaches the spin cycle only happens wen it is a full load not a half load

Form the front of washer, spin drum by hand, and if it fees rough, or is rumbling, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, then could be worn shockers, or the washer is not properly levelled, or concrete balance weight, I'm afraid it is a process of elmination.
Hope this helps.
