Bad news,mostlikely it's the spider gear and that means new washer time.using to much soap does this.it eats at the rear bearing and actually breaks it off and that's the sound you're hearing the basket has no rear bearing to ride on any more.you can first check to see if the shocks are broken,but most of the time the shocks break because the rear bearing is gone but check that first,i've found some with just a broken shock from overloading the washer.good luck and sorry to give you the bad news,the spider gear costs around 450 to 500 hundred bucks

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

My Maytag goes out of balance and bangs loudly


This is usually due to the floor not being perfectly level, and as a consequence the washing machine not standing firmly on all 4 supports.
There should be at least 2 adjustable feet under the machine, try to make it stand as level as possible, with uniform load on all four.
If you have a bubble level it may help you establish, if there's an obvious slope on your floor and adjust the machine so that it's well levelled.
Good luck!

Three day old Indesit washing machine


Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
