About 2 months ago our front loading washer has gotten pretty loud when it's on the spin cycle. It used to be almost silent. It's perfectly level and I've looked through everything the manual suggests without any luck. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on?

And by loud I mean shaking, it's at least twice as loud as it used to be.

See if it's centered. By centered, I mean that thingee in the middle is typically moveable. An off-center load may have moved it. You should just be able to move it back to exact center with your hands.

If there's no thingee in the middle, try shifting the whole inside carriage to exact center.

Depending on the brand, Maytag had a recall on their front loaders for that same problem. My daughter had one under the recall that Maytag worked on twice. It still is noisy and she is saving money for a top loader. Maytag gave up on hers.

most likely bad bearing - a throw away type of repair in the $400-500 range.

Exactly what mine did. It was really loud during spin for a couple of days then it stopped spinning completely. I called the repairman that we use all the time, Douglasville appliance repair and he said it was the transmission and not worth fixing. Had to get a new washer, sorry for the bad news.

What brand is this and how long have you had it? My husband is a certified tech for several brands and he may can give you some ideas if he know this info.

Ours did that. Had it repaired twice, it is less than 2 years old.. There is a big concrete looking balance thing inside and it broke. Thankfully I had bought the extended warrany. Will NEVER purchase another. Call the repairman.
