Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle

We have a 5 year old Kenmore 22622 washer that has been making a loud knocking noise only at the end of the spin cycle (as it's spinning down). It is not unbalanced, and will also do this if no clothes are even in the washer. The washer works perfectly fine otherwise. It does not seem to be worsening either, as it's been doing this for at least a couple years now (always just meant to call someone to look at it, never have). Finally thought I'd just get this taken care of. Any ideas as to what this could be? My 5 year old top load Kenmore 80 model washer started knocking and vibrating and making a boatload of noise at the end of every spin cycle several months ago. I balance the loads and I've checked it and it's level, both side to side and front to back. It makes the noise whether its full or empty, and it still works, but I fear it will self destruct each time I run a load of laundry. My dilemma now is "Do I... 1) pay the $65 plus whatever it costs the repairman to fix it, 2) do the special deal thing for $215 where they fix it and guarantee it for a year, 3) kick it to the curb and buy a new one or 4) hope that someone out there has had the exact same problem and has actually fixed it? If I had a better idea of whether it was going to cost $30 in parts or $300 in parts, I'd have a better chance of making a good choice. Can anybody help???

Have you checked the wire harness ,because the tapping of just 2 wires hitting the cabinet is overlooked alot.The noise just 2 wires makes simulates a hammer knocking inside.If the problem isn't escalating than check to see if your tub support arms are all tight.There are 12 of them.

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

it could be the break above the transmission. it engages what looks like break shoes when the machine is not spinning. if these are worn down to the rivets then it will make this noise. it requires a special tool to replace.0de7df9.jpg

Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle


To allow for unbalanced loads and reduce vibration in the floor of the house, the outer tub is suspended by various means. Some machines use a heavy rubber ring, others use spiral springs but either of those can, after a heavily unbalanced load, unhang themselves or in the case of the rubber suspension, the rubber tires and rips.
If you remove the back panel (10-12 screws) and look inside while pushing the tub side-to-side, you should be able to find the suspension and inspect it with good light.
