If your Washing Machine is making too much noise, there are a few easy things to check.

1 Check pockets before loading the machine and remove any loose items. Zip up any zippers, button any buttons, and turn clothing inside out to reduce clanging against the drum
Remove loose items from clothing
2 Remove shipping bolts on the back of the Washing Machine, if still intact. To check whether all the shipping bolts are removed, open the door and place your hand on the edge of the drum and push it forward and backward. If it moves easily, all the shipping bolts are removed
