The thumping could also be a belt issue if it has a flat spot in it, especially if its a Frigidare Hybrid GE. To get to the element, sorry to say it, but will have to remove the drum and front of machine to get to it. Ohm out all the thermostats and thermofuses first. If it has the round element behind the drum (which it should) check the heater wire for breaks. If its a true GE it will have two wires, Frigidare Hybrid will only have one. Good Luck!!! Jim

GE front load washer makes a loud slapping sound during the spin cycle and it sounds like something heavy is in the drum that keeps falling to the bottom of the drum when the spin cycle ends

You did not post the model number and that would be a must. However this sounds like the bearing or the pulley on the drum may have broken.

Tub broke loose from washer and is hitting the side. Can this be fixed, if so how much, can I do it myself

Had similar problem, finally found the problem. The tub is mounted with three bolts located just above the springs to the frame. One bolt was missing. Replaced the bolt. I had a terrible thump thump shaking the house spin cycle. Took the tub out and cleaned the filter too. Now the spin cycle works like it should and the tub drains faster too. This filter is a good spot to find a lost diamond. Or in my case a few sequins.

Frigidaire was tub makes loud thump noise during spin cycle....

Need more information to make an accurate diagnosis, try removing the front panel (two screws at bottom) and visually check first the belt (all the way around) and then the springs that hold the tub suspended.
I would bet on the belt.

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.

GE WSM2780W Stacked Washer spin cycle

With no clothing in the wash tub take the following steps:
1. remove the front cover from the wash tub
2. run a full cycle of laundry and observe the tub's behavior

Potential Solutions:
A. If the tub begins to shake wildly during a full wash cycle with no clothing in it then you will need to adjust the 3 large springs on each side of the tub until the unit is working in a more-balanced position. This is simple to do by hand. If the tub appears to be shaking too far forward, then unhook the 2 large springs in back so they are tighter. Then run a full wash cycle again with no clothing.
* note: there are smaller springs too - you don't have to adjust these to fix your issue

B. If the tub works fine with no clothing during a full wash cycle, then try to load your clothing in a more balanced fashion. For example: if your wash load is only a small kitchen or bath rug then when the unit spins it will spin off balance with a wet & heavy item on only one side of the tub.

C. If you'd like to replace the 3 large springs, I can get you the part numbers. There are specific springs for both sides of the wash tub and they are different part numbers. The full replacement of the 3 large springs can be done by hand.

thanks,
Chris I.

Washer thumps when in spin.

Open the service panel and look for a loose spring or a malfunction shock absorber.Replace the deffective one or return it to place. Regarding the heating element- check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on its tags. In case you can read 115/220V you should replce it. If you can't read it,your problem is not the heating element. Let me know if you need for further assistance. Good luck!
