Question about GE Washing Machines
The tub just wobbles bouncing off the walls in spin mode
The tub is out of balance. When it starts hitting the sides, stop the washer and move your clothes around inside the tub to balance the tub. Now start it to spin again. This should stop the tub from hitting the sides.

Sounds like one of the springs going from the tub to the frame could be broke or unhooked. Also, the washer could be out of balance.

This is normally caused by defective dampers. Just like car suspension, these even-out the vibrations of the drum.
When worn, the drum just bounces wildly on it's springs.
The metallic banging should be avoided by foam buffers fitted inside. These frequently fall off unnoticed. They just need gluing back on with impact adhesive.
Here is a typical diagram of a washer - click HERE Move your cursor over the damper on the bottom left of the drum to see it.
Look online at spares centres for your make and model, and look for keywords of - suspension, shocks, shock absorbers or dampers for your parts.
They are fairly easy to fit with the back removed.
