Troubleshooting a Samsung Washing Machine Loud When Spinning

Washer Makes Loud Knocking or Thumping Sounds

If your Samsung washing machine makes loud knocking or thumping sounds, it’s likely because the leveling legs are uneven. Uneven leveling legs can cause your washer to be unbalanced, making loud banging noises during the spin cycle.

To fix this issue, first, check to make sure that all four of your washer’s leveling legs are touching the ground. If one or more legs are not touching the ground, adjust it until it is.

Once all four leveling legs are touching the ground, run a test load of laundry through your washer to see if the noise has stopped. If your Samsung washing machine loud when spinning continues, there may be another issue causing your washer to be unbalanced and making loud noises.

Banging Sounds During Washer Spin Cycle

Overloading a washing machine can also make loud banging noises. If your washer is overloaded, simply remove some of the clothes and try running the cycle again.

Pro-Tip: Large items like comforters or bedding should be washed one at a time to not overload the washing machine.
