Hi,

This is a Common Problem with Kenmore. This seems to be a Transmission Problem and not a DIY ( Do It Yourself ).I wish i could have a better solution.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

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

If you take the front or rear panel off you can pinpoint the source of the knock better. It's either the transmission in which case I would put up with it as long as I could. If you have a belt it could be a defect in the belt.

A knocking noise during agitation wash cycle


could be a bad counter balance , u can remove the front panel and run a spin or wash cycle and listen to where its coming from so u don't have to replace all the balancers. on some models theres a heavy ceramic weight at bottom that at times goes bad and throws it off balance, just run it and look where noise is coming from

There is a loud knocking noise wehn my machine is on spin cycle, can you help?


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The loud knocking you hear is the drum hitting the side of the machine from either a broken or disconnected balancing spring or shock.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

The machine makes a knocking noise on the final rinse/spin cycle


Hi,
It is a phenomenon called resonance.
Whenever the natural frequency of your sink unit is equal to the disturbing frequency (rpm of the spin cycle of the washing machine) the sink resonates.
It happens only at particular speed of spinning and vanishes with change in speed.
Nothing to worry about and is common. sort of sounds like the spray arm is loose. In your befuddled poking around, perhaps you pulled the lower spray arm out and ran it but, lo, it still makes the noise when washing. You don’t hear the noise during the drain cycle.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Knocking in washer


Hi,
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

good luck.........

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

Hotpoint Ultima WMA61 loud knocking noise in spin cycle


Hello I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it..

If you need any further advice then dont hesistate to ask....
