Sounds like a spring which keeps the tub centred is broken. Could also be a worn bearing. this needs specialised tools to get the problem fixed, especially to replace the bearing. contact a repair-person.

Drum hitting sides of machine in spinning cycle (unbalance)


It sounds like you may have to many clothes in it. Try to remove some or reposition them. Sometimes the clothes get pushed to one side of the drum during the spin cycle and all of the weight to one side is making it off balanced.

Hi,

Here is what I suggested to another person with a similar request......

Not knowing what model machine you have, I would hazard a guess and say it is your break solenoid or break arm or a variation on a break system.

After the spin cycle, the break solenoid or break motor engages a break arm to stop and lock your spinning drum. The loud clunk is normal especially in Simpson and Hoover top load machines.

You can check this by putting the machine on a spin cycle. Once the machine gets up to speed, open the door. You will hear the clunck and then the drum stops abrublty. When you close the lid again, you will hear the solenoid release the drum, and then the motor starts spinning the drum again.

If that is the case, it is normal and no need to worry about it. However, if you did not have the noise before, then best to get a repairer to check it out.

Regards
Ash

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
