Rattling or Banging

 

Possible Solutions

Rattling, Banging or Tapping Noises:

The drain hose or water inlet hoses may be knocking against the rear of the washer cabinet. Secure the hoses using the beaded strap supplied with the washer (on some models), or use a wire tie. The vibration of the washer can be carried through to the hoses. Also, as water is pushed through the hoses, it can cause the hoses to move. If the hoses have enough space to hit the cabinet, a knocking noise will be heard.

Also verify that no other items are leaning against the washer, such as every day household items. Brooms, dustpans, dryer racks, or hangers can make rattling noises if they are leaning against the washer, especially during high spin speeds. Always check around the outside of your washer before use for items that may cause noise.
