Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
You might try checking the damper struts - Inside the case you'll find that much of the machinery is suspended on springs. Alongside the springs, there's usually a couple of dampers (look a little bit like hydraulic rams or car shock absorbers).
Take these off (DON'T attempt to run the machine without them fitted). Slide them in and out. They should slide smoothly, but with significant resistance to rapid motion. If either doesn't feel right, replace it. They aren't usually outrageously expensive.
