I have a front loader Electrolux (SN: XC40807716, MN: GSTR1670AS0) which has started to cause a loud thumping/banging noise during the spin cycle.  I have replaced the springs and shock absorbers a few months back when one of the springs let go crushing the 2 absorbers with it. I have recorded the thumping sound for your audio pleasure and was hoping to know if this is even worth repairing.

I cant listen to the audio ob my mobile device but it soubds like you may have a broken drum support. This is inside the plastic outer tub. You would have to split the tub to check it. Or someone that can listen to the audio can check. Also check to make sure the rear drum pulley is tight.

I will have to take it apart to confirm, I have been priced $335 for the inner tub (Manufacturer Number 131618500).  Need to decide if its worth it at this point.

Meant to reply to this message earlier.  Took the drum out and sure enough the spider was the culprit. It was really corroded with one of the spider arms clearly broken.  I couldn't even take the spindle out. So for $750 I picked up a Samsung front loader. I should not have to hear about any problems with the washing machine for a long time.

Make sure you only use HE detergent in your new washer and make sure you stay away from liquid fabric softener and use hot water and bleach once in a while and leave the door open after you are done washing or this same thing will happen to your new washer.
