Question about Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer
My 4 yr old front load washer is making a banging noise during the spin cycle. I didn't let it get to a fast spin. This was during the slow spin. The drum seems to have more movement than usual.
I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

Sears came out to fix one of mine for $300 plus dollars, but the solution didn't work, so they gave me a $500 voucher for a new machine. The problem is they don't have any new machines that can be paired to stack with my dryer, so I have to get a whole new washer/dryer set, which will cost about $1400. Sears and their service department are a racket.
But to answer your question, I've also fixed this issue by cleaning the drains on the units. For older ones, you have to take off the lower front plate, and have a bowl for the water to drain in. If that doesn't help or work, your SOL my friends.

2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty
or rear bearring has worn out.
this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container
