It sounds to me like one of the springs at the top or telescopic dampers at the bottom may have broken from its mount or otherwise failed. If you switch off the power and remove the lid you may be able to see. Another possibility is that the chunk of concrete / iron which is attached to the outer drum is loose or brealing up. A dislodged spring or a broken damper is within most people's DIY skills, but if the mount has come off, or the counterweight come loose, you'll probably need a welder . In those situations a washing machine repair person will most likely tell you the machine cannot be fixed. :-)

Check those things if you can and come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D.

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.

Maytag Centennial washer makes loud bang and the end of cycle.

I don't think it would be the bearing, as no sounds abnormal occur during it's wash cycle. I think it's at the end of the spin dry cycle, that a "brake" is applied which stops the drum from spin drying, but is being applied overly hard, which causes the drum to "BANG", stop abruptly by the brake. Only a washer repairman could deal with that problem, but, it's NOT dangerous to the washer, IF that's what the problem is. Contact a washer repairman in your area, and they'll probably be able to tell you if it's THAT or something more serious, which I doubt. The reason why the washer moves a bit when at the end of the cycle is probably because the brake which causes the spin dry cycle to come to it's end, does so very fast, which displaces the centrifugal energy abruptly towards lateral motion. Not really dangerous either.

My washing machine make a rapid banging sound whilei spin cycle

Are you sure your machine is level and the clothes are not piled to one side. Alot of times this is caused by the weight of clothes more to one side of the drum then the other causing the machine to bang as it spins

Washer agitates off balance and makes a loud banging sound until movement stops at the beginning of rinse cycle, advice?

If it makes this noise in the agitate mode and not during the spin cycle, I would suspect that the transmission is going.

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!

This sounds like the brakes have gotten some residue on them and are grabbing way too hard. The banging is the tub stopping too fast and the torque from this makes the tub bang into the cabinet. Just one bang at the end of a spin. Is this correct???
