The drum assembly should move, but not hit the cabinet. The dampers/shock absorbers should restrain it. They wear out, can either bind or move freely instead of providing even resistance. Check them. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace, though you may need to remove the back panel to reach their attachment pins to push/pull them out.

Solução escolhida

My bet would be the Pulley or Drive Pulley. If you give us the model number I can probably find the part.

Tub Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might need to be replace. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. The manufacturer recommends that if possible the complete outer tub and bearing be replaced rather than attempting to replace just the bearing in the tub. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

If the washer is making loud noise the tub seal and bearing kit might need to be replace. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the tub seal and bearing kit will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Rear Drum with Bearing

If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing might not be sold separately, the entire rear drum might have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Drive Pulley

If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.

Pulley

If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley may be worn out. If the drive pulley is loose or wobbling it will need to be replaced

U-Joint Kit

If the washer is making a loud noise the U-Joint may have failed. This is the primary drive mechanism for the agitation motion in this washer. Although this is not a very difficult repair for a DIY'er with some experience, the part is expensive and so it may be worth considering a new washer.

Motor Coupling

If the washer is making a loud noise the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Clutch

If the washer is making a loud noise in the spin cycle, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may become loud during spin or just after the spin cycle finishes. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Transmission

If the washer is making a loud noise the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are many other more likely causes for noise from a washer. If the noise turns out to be caused by the transmission it may have to be replaced.

Thank's alot. I'll look for the serial number. And get back to you.

Every item referrred to (if the washing machine is making a loud noise) so it could be so many things that it doesn't really pinpoint any problem but loads if them. Repairing is so sketchy & often expensive to only fail again shortly after, so my reply would be throw it out & buy a new one. £350 will get you a brand new machine & warranty.

All this other advice is well and good but the first thing is to ensure the machine is standing on a rock solid surface and is oriented dead level. I have just installed a used front-loader and I meticulously levelled up the machine and stood it on four rubber pads that ensured it stays in place.

BELIEVE ME THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO DAMAGE IT.

Sounds like the out-of-balance dampening mechanism is worn out or broken.

To Cayleigh Gellatly . Your response should have been posted as a new question.

It’s not a spring. that is causing your problem. The springs allow the drum to move to accommodate inevitable imbalance. Dampers/shock absorbers and counterweights are intended to limit that movement until excess water is spun out.

My experience is that people tend to assume that new major appliances work the same as ones they’ve previously had, and skip reading or skim through the operation manuals for new appliances in their eagerness to use the new.

That is a mistake. New washing machines are fundamentally different from ones made 10 years ago. Their capacities, washing cycle times, water temperature settings, load capacities and spin cycle speeds have changed. The old metric of cubic capacity can’t be used to compare machines of different generations, styles or manufacturers.

Rocking is an indication that a load is not balanced. It can happen when clothing of significantly different fabrics are in one load in a high(er) efficiency machine with high(er) speed spin, and more likely to happen when a load is too heavy or light or has too few items in it.

Fabric imbalance would be equal “volumes” of all-cotton jeans and all-polyester knit sweaters. The jeans would absorb and hold more moisture. The sweaters’ polyester easily lets water drain from it.

The dry weight of those two types of clothing and their wet weights are radically different. In a front load machine when the spin cycle starts, the jeans might weigh 4x as much as the sweaters. If the majority of the jeans were to the front or rear of the drum, increasing the spin speed would make the drum move forward and backward as well as from side to side. In a top load machine, the effect would be more of a uniform rotational wobble, as all the clothes would be at the bottom.

Having too few items in a load of any kind of material especially if the items are large can also cause an imbalance.

Re-read the loading instructions for you machine, paying special attention to its advice about how much to put in one load and how to combine different kinds of clothing.

I only thought this as when there is nothing in the washing machine and i open the door. The drum seams to push to the back and leave a lot more room than it normally would but more on the left side than the right.. completely understand your message as there is so many different settings. I will get the load information booklet out and have a read through. Ive noticed it today and like you stated. I only had some bed sheets in so the washer wasnt even half full. Thanks again

My washer drum moved probably more than it should and wasn’t spinning out completely or stopping occasionally. After troubleshooting and nearly rolling it out my door, I discovered both dampening brackets on the right side were broken, (they hold the drum in place) I ordered a pack of four from eBay and had them within two days and followed a YouTube video and fixed my problem

I bought a indesit washing machine 14month ago.. it washes fine doesnt make a noise. When i push the drum round its really smooth and doesnt make a sound.. as soon as it goes onto spin the drum is rocking forward and back and banging on the front of the washing machine. Could this be a spring that holds the drum together. Wasnt expecting a problem after having it such short time any help appreciated

If it ALWAYS does this during spin cycle, look to see if your machine has 2 or 4 shock absorbers on the bottom. If it has 4, one of them could be worn out. The second possibility is if the machine has dynamic balancing rings and one of them has leaked its brine solution.

There is another possibility depending on the age of the machine. The drum itself can become loose even though drive shaft and bearing are still sound. The noise can be deafening indeed and only occur at certain speeds.

Quick and easy check with the machine empty, turn the bowl by hand, if it clunks at some point of seems to wobble independent of the whole unit, you have a clue. The wobble should show up at the front of the drum so that is moves independent of the rest of the machine. It is likely to be more observable in one direct, so retate until it ‘flops’ then lift up and down. It will feel loose . As per mayer above, big deal. The bowl to shaft connection has a failure - fastenings or metal or both. On an older machine - replace the lot. On newer you’ll need a quote. Cheers

This kind of failure is sometimes called a "broken spider". Some brands have spiders that can be easily replaced and are available as replacement parts . Most of the A,erican made brands do not.

Why worry & stress. Basically it's gonna cost you a couple of hundred quid to get it sorted. If it's over 8 years it's gonna pack up again soon with something else wearing out. Get a new one & u can relax knowing its all new parts that will last another few years.

"Few years" is the key point for me. Each successive machine I've owned has cost significantly more and lasted half as long. My first washer was used when I bought it and worked well for so long that when it finally needed a repair. the maker had gone out if business. Parts were no longer available. My current machine is so new that I remember when I bought it and what it cost-too much.

After going through several repairs and a replacement of front load machines over 2 decades, I decided that even though I like the way they work -WHEN they work- better than top loaders, I won't be getting another front loader.

I'm an engineer. I have been reading through the past 5 years of Consumer Reports reviews and concluded that it is cheaper to forgo the Energy Star rebates and pay for more water and heating, to buy a basic top loading commercial agitator machine, and replace clothing more often than to pay more to buy, maintain, repair and replace front loaders that take more of my time and money every year that I owned the

The concept of energy reduction is good, but the net cost of repair, replacement and recycling on the environment more than offsets it. Planned obsolescence, not operating costs, is the primary enemy of the environment. Use a more reliable and durable machine more wisely and you will help the environment more than if you keep buying short-lived machined that use less "fuel" but consume more resources through repair and replacement.

The digital displays and multiple cycles (bells and whistles) added to recent machines do NOT perform the primary function of cleaning clothing better than older machines did. They consume MORE of the users's time,. They are not more convenient. If it weren't for the Federal policy of increased consumption and the EPA/Energy Star mandates "guidelines", the washing machine performance we have today would have NEVER been accepted by consumers. True improvements in design would have accomplished more. We don't need more of the same, but the equivalent of a Tesla to reset consumer expectations for quality and performance.
