Clunking noise when water is trying to drain

When the water is trying to drain, there is a terrible clunking noise. I have already cleaned the pump filter. The water doesn't appear to be draining, but I did not let it go long as I was afraid of doing further damage.

Hate this machine. Maybe this time I'll just finally kick it to the curb!

You may have something inside the drain pump and the pump fins are just knocking the large debris around.  You will need to disassemble the drain pump to see what's inside it.  This will require a call from a qualified LG technician.

Error code 5E keeps coming up on my Samsung SW52ASP washing machine.

You need to really check the noise from where the correct inference could be made. Seems that the drum or the moving system is under friction and needs a reset.

Whirlpool wtw5100sq0 clunks when put on spin cycle

Does the washer currently work fine aside from the loud clunking noise? Does the clunking noise continue or is it just one loud clunk when it starts to spin? If its just one loud clunk then that is not a problem just ignore it as that is the clutch spring releasing, it probably starting making noise from the grease getting washed off when the washer over filled.
However how did the washer overfill? That issue should be addressed too. Sometimes though, if the tub is not centered from a heavy load the water will spill over the back but its not really an overfill.

My hotpoint washer wont agitate spin or drain. it makes a clunking noise when you try to change the cycles manually

The draining problem could be something stuck in the pump. A easy fix just take it apart and get whatever is in it out of there. The agitator sits atop an agitator drive block. The spline on these tends to strip out. Yank off the agitator (it just snaps on) and replace the drive block.

Hi my asko fron load washing machine model W621 wont drain properly anymore and makes a clunking sound as it tries to spin are u able to tell me what possibly could be wrong with it & if its worth...

Not to worry, please check from the drain hose from beneath and open the hose. Look for dirt inside for clogging into the valve/drain pump. Remove and clean the valve/pump if there is dirt. If not during the spin the valves must open and drain. if not check for the controller section for fault. The clunk noise could be misalignment of the suspension or the damper unit. tighen or replace. Hope you try . Good day

Clunking during spin

see if the shocks are not broken. if you spin the wash basket by hand and hear a grinding noise, then your bearing would most likely be bad
