Washing Machine makes hitting sound when spinning

Washing Machine

If your washing machine makes noise during the spin cycle we have some repair tips below to fix your machine. A washing machine making a loud noise when spinning means a part has become worn out or loose.

Thumping or knocking

To help identify this noise, it can sometimes be a muffled "thump," it's usually accompanied by movement from the washer, and it typically has a steady pattern or beat.)This noise is normal when certain large or waterproof items (like bedsheets) are being washed.If this occurs:

1 It might be cause either by an unbalanced load of laundry, or some foreign substance.
2 Make sure the washer is level.
3 Check that the shipping bolts are removed (front load models only).

Note: An easy way to check if the shipping bolts are removed without pulling your washer out to look behind it is to open the door and push against the drum. The drum should rotate freely and bounce slightly when you press against it, like it's connected to springs. If it only rotates but doesn't bounce, like it's connected to a rock, the shipping bolts are not removed.

Rattling or clicking

The sound of it is a rapidly repetitive "clatter," often in random, or unsteady pattern.

These clicking noises are normal at the beginning and end of a cycle. If this noise occurs throughout the cycle:

1 Make sure the washer is level.
2 Look for anything rattling against the washer (like the power cord or drain hose).
3 Check the tub for loose objects.
