Washer makes a thumping sound

When washing towels on the "quick wash" cycle, when agitating the machine makes a thumping sound on the side. I had the repairman out and he ran it through diagnostics and couldn't find anything. Something is not right though. Any ideas

Washer squeaks during agitation, both wash and rinse. also makes thumping sound for few seconds after spin cycle stops.


Hello Chris, thank you for your post!
I see that the washer on your Frigidaire laundry center is squealing during agitation. This noise could be coming from the motor or transmission and you may need to have the washer disassembled to locate which component may be causing the issue. For proper disassembly you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician. A technician will have the appropriate tools needed for complete disassembly of the washer without causing personal injury or harm to the laundry center. Hopefully this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

My washing fills and drains properly, but will not agitate or run the spin cycle. I sounds like it is going through the cycle properly, but will not turn the drum (spin cycle) or agitator.


Try picking a different wash cycle, instead of your annual quick wash cycle opt for the longer wash cycle and then you may find that the spin cycle may kick-in, hope this works for you, good luck!

Spin cycle tub becomes unbalance


When the drum gets unbalanced more often then not, there's a few things to check:
1. Check to make sure your machine is level. Check level from side to side and also front to back. The machine has leveling feet to adjust. Make sure they are all in firm contact with the floor when leveled.
2. Wash items that are alike in material. In other words, wash towels with towels, shirts with shirts, etc. If you wash a load of shirts with a towel, it will have a tendency to get unbalanced quickly.
3. Avoid over-stuffing the machine and washing under sized loads. Both of these scenarios will cause a tendency to go out of balance on the spin.
This will solve 75-80% of unbalance issues. Let me know how it goes..

Long cycles on my whirlpool duet washer


it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Kenmore 90 series washer will get stuck in between cycles


Sounds like the timer has failed. It's a common problem.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


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.

Thumping/knocking/rattles during wash agitation cycle


Mine is doing the same thing. I opened it up to see what was happening and it was the drive belt tension arm bumping around. Soon, the belt started slipping during the spin cycle. Now it won't spin and the belt starts to smolder from the friction of the drive motor. If you haven't checked your belt, that's a good place to start.
