Question about Washing Machines
The drum is turned by a belt that surrounds 80 percent of it. The other 20 percent of this belt goes through a belt tensioner. This tensioner has a idler pulley with a bearing in the middle of it. The bearing has seized up causing the pulley not to turn making the pulley to get a flat spot. That flat spot causes the banging noise. Sears does sell the pulley & the belt in a kit to replace your faulty parts. The top and front panels has to be removed to gain access to the drum. The drum will pull straight out for servicing these parts
