Our washer makes a banging noise which is very noticible during the spinning cycle. It may occur during other cycles, but at a lower volume since the washing cycles are not as fast as the spin cycle. Anyway, I have looked under the washer (and did find a bolt that was out of the transmission, which I put back in and it did not correct the issue) but find nothing that is apparent causing the noise. I did run the spin cycle while I was looking under the washer (with the help of my wife) and it appears to be something between the basket and the tub.

So, I guess the question I have is how do I get the washer so that I can take the basket out of the tub and hopefully locate the source of our noise? Conversely, are there thoughts about what could be causing that noise if its not something between the tub and basket?

Thanks!

A little more info denziens...when I had the earlier issue with this washer (only other post I have on this site) I replaced the clutch kit on the washer, but did not replace the transmission. When the cycles stop, they end violently. This is for all cycles, not just the spin cycle.

I took the washer housing off this morning just to get a better look at the surroundings of the tub to see if there was something loose, etc. All of the springs appear to be in place and relatively 'springy'. I did remove the agitator as well and it appears that the part that the tub nut attaches to, which I believe is the drive block, has a portion missing (or there is a notch left there intentionally.

Doing an eye inspection of the outer tub, I can't see anything stuck in between the tub and the basket.

Any ideas on where to begin (other than the local appliance store :deal: ) would be greatly appreciated. Or if you guys think this is a lost cause, let me know and I'll start shopping!

Thanks again.

The drive block is supposed to have that notch taken out of it. If the noise is that big bang at the end of the cycle, that means your brake probably has some buildup on there causing it to stop too hard. I would just clean up the brake area with some emory cloth. In order to do that u will need to take out the basket drive block and transmission. Then you can look up and turn the white plastic tab counter clockwise if I recall correctly, and it will pull right down and u can clean it up from there. I hope this helps, good luck!

You've come this far, might as well have the basket out of there for a good look-see. You'll need a special tool to get the spanner nut off.
First, do no harm.

Thanks for the info on the notch. Eases my mind a bit. Unfortunately, the banging is throughout the cycle so its not just the brake, though that would fix that issue. So, its starting to sound like multiple issues.

Any place other than an appliance parts store that I can get that spanner tool?
