It appears your vibration damper has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Might just be a shock absorbing rod has come loose from vibration. Remove the service panel and run the washer so you can see where the noise is coming from. Your tech sheet will be inside the service pane. I have the tech manual and ID parts photos with error codes for duet HERE. Note use your tech sheet for diagnosis not all are the same.

Thumping sound when the water turns on or off? during a normal cold cycle, we especially hear it during the spin cycle. It's not the spinning action it's the water turning on or off that makes a pretty...


Sounds like you are experiencing "water hammering". When the water valve shuts off quickly, the water which was flowing in the pipe must stop, and the momentum of the water suddenly stopping can cause the pipes to rattle or bang. Adding an air chamber would cusion that, and eliminate the banging. I have seen some (at a local Home Depot) which can screw onto the hose right where it connects to the hosehold shut off valve behind the washer.

Very loud rumbling noise during spinning


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.This will solve your problem.
