Remove the top of the machine and check if the centralising spring/s is/are still attatched. Next remove back cover or tilt machine back and inspected the shock absorbers. One of the shockies could be broken or just pulled out of the guide. If springs and shockies are ok open the door and try to move the inner drum up, down and sideways. If it is very loose, then the centre bearing is worn.

My Hoover 750L starts its spin cycle but when goes to a really high spin it makes a noise.


Check your mounts and support springs---one of them maybe broke or loose---since you haven't described the noise this is the best i can come up with. GL

Banging noise on spin cycle


My beko washing machine was making a racket like this. What it was was the large blocks of concrete bolted to the drum had come loose. Solution was to get a 13mm socket with a bar and extension and tighten them up really hard as far as I could manage. THen the probelm dissapeared no more banging. Worth a try if your has similar blocks attached to outer drum

Washer sounds like off balance during spin


old duets have nut on rear pulley that becomes loose. remove rear panel and tighten nut. check while spinning by hand if pop is felt. if it rotates smoothly then you may need new shocks on tub
