When spinning in the washing machine, it makes hitting sounds. What is the cause of this?

Last Update Date : 2018-04-17

Noise and vibration are unavoidable since a front loading washing machine rotates 1.5 times quicker than a top loading washing machine to maximize spin performance.

1 Check point.01

→ It might be cause either by an unbalanced load of laundry, or some foreign substance.

The washing tub rotates at a quick speed during a spin cycle. If a load of laundry is small

(i.e. one or two pairs of jeans) or big(i.e. several blankets), the tub may become unbalanced 

to one side, giving rise to a bumping sound. Ensure that laundry is evenly distributed or add

or take out some of the laundry to fit the recommended amount of laundry.

 

Especially, when you wash a blanket, make sure to only roll up one blanket at a time.
