Several points. did you put in transit bolts for move and forget to remove them? is machine sitting square on all four legs? is it sitting on a suspended floor? if joist spacing is wide, then this can result in vibration.

The spin cycle is very noisy. What could be the problem?

hi robyn.
A washer making a loud noise during spin cycle can also be caused by a faulty drive pulley. The pulley is what the belt (if applicable to yourwasher) rides on to spin your washers tub. The pulley can be made of plastic or metal. It could be simply worn out or just loose.27 Jul 2015

Samsung front load washer, jerks and makes noise when it first starts spinningthen it smooths out, and works fine.

on many machines that is normal, the shaking continues until the load is distributed relative evenly around the spinning drum. It is also possible it is the main bearing but I am not sure. The noise I am talking about would have been there since new. These links may help. Washer has noise during spin cycle Whirlpool Maytag Sears GHW9100LW1 Washer is Making Loud Noise

Washing machine shakes violently during spin

Hi

If your washing machine shakes violently or if there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine

Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

My washing machine makes a loud noise when it spin dries. what could be the problem? it washes well; the machine does not shake or vibrate during the spin drying; it just makes a loud sound; it never was...

Hello,
It sounds like the bearings are starting to go.The problem is as it is 6 years old the repair job could be expensive,unless you have an extended warranty.It still might be worth getting a quote off one of your local repair dealerships.
Hope this helps.

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle

There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.
