In spin cycle the tub had been making loud noise. Then there was a knocking the last time or two. Then it stopped spinning. The tube won't turn at all. Is this the bearing? Does the tub need to be replaced?

Just had the same problem last night; I took off the back and noticed that the 'shock absorber' was broken. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Electrolux/Frigidaire/fwt449gfs1/Electrolux/Frigidaire/134564200/New.aspx

Not sure if the same part is broken on yours.

Kenmore 400 make loud banging noise at end of the spin cycle


It sounds like the drive block may be stripped out. To check it, you will need to remove the agitator to see if it is bad. Below is a video to show you how to access the drive block. Here is the part to order if you should find it bad.

If the drive block is good, post back to me and we will continue the diagnostics on the unit.

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.

Machine knocks and walks when spinning a small load


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.
-----------------------
The problem is the brake. The odd time what happens is moisture gets on thebrake rotor and the squealing is heard when the brake stator is applied to stop the tub from spinning. This moisture, may drip down from the tub onto the brake rotor which could indicate a leaky tub seal. If you can't see any dripping when you fill the tub with water, don't worry about the tub seal. Many times than not the brake is just going sour on it's own.
Sometimes you can fix the squealing by cleaning the rotor and stator with a light sandpaper, such as emery/sand cloth. If that doesn't work you will need to replace the brake stator and rotor. If you need to replace them replace both parts together, don't just change the stator without also replacing the rotor, or vice versa. And here's a bonus tip: the brake spring exerts 200 pounds of force. If you try to remove the six 5/16" screws without using this brake removal tool, serious injury can/could happen!! The splined part in the middle of the brake needs to be greased really good before putting the brake back on!

Kenmore 80 Series washing machine - loud banging at end of spin


With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.

Basket drive block part number is 389140

If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further.
Good luck!

Check to be sure inner tub is not spinning freely on spin tube. It can be noisy when this happens. When it's spinning and stops it may continue spinning for a bit when this happens. You usually need to replace spin tube, because the tabs that key into drive block for inner tub break off. Also replace drive block.
