Why is my washing machine Miele w404 making thudding noises on spin Plse?


Unbalance load???

When in spinning cycle, does your drum start shaking violently and hitting the washer outer walls. Out of balance load.....

Is your machine on level floor. Does it have a play on legs while sitting doing nothing???

Happens for every load, then may be your washer shocks and/or top coil springs have come out or broken..

Or machine drum counter weights broken and drum going out of balance.

Lg turbo drum


Check if the counter balance weight is still attached. Sounds like a balance problem.

When the washer spins the tub will hit against the back of the washer. IF you stand and hold the edge of the tub it will try to spin correctly


This means the load is out of balance in the drum. Take the clothes out and drop them loosely back in. Try again.
For pillows, always wash two at a time. At spin, place one at either side of the tub.
Heavy clothes, wash in pairs or threes to help balance the load.
The springs on the tub mounts may be stretched or worn out. This is a tough job. A washer technician can do this for you.

There was a recall on the washer base, which caused the unbalanced problem. Find Technical Buletin TDL-0050B-B issued by Matag.

Drum off balance


It's either a bad suspension spring or you have a crack in the tub support.
