Highly likely that either your bearings or spider arm has gone out, this is no easy fix. You can 'search' above or click on 'troubleshooting' in blue to browse

You need to replace the drive block and basket drive. You can download a tutorial to get you started at www.shop.washermd.com. The gearcase replacement tutorial will put you in the right direction. Dave

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

I have a whirlpool duet front loading washer and during the spin cycle it makes a horrible thumping noise. It seems like the drum inside is very loose as well.


you may have a broken shock, remove lower pane with a 1/4 socket or nut driver, once you have done that you should see 4 shocks at each corner of outer tub, if one has come loose or broken it will sound loud when in spin, it should be easy to notice

Loud thumping noise during spin.......not related to unbalance....manually turning the tub makes a loud noise.


Bearings shot or counter weights have come loose

Take the top off and check the weights first

Frigidaire was tub makes loud thump noise during spin cycle....


Need more information to make an accurate diagnosis, try removing the front panel (two screws at bottom) and visually check first the belt (all the way around) and then the springs that hold the tub suspended.
I would bet on the belt.

Washer makes loud, thumping noises during spin cycle.


support bracket that supports the tub is breaking. stick your hand inside and push up and down and see if its coming apart. if u look at it when it runs does it wobble?(the tub) if not take a look at the pulley on the back and see if its wobbly.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning


Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.
