    I just bought one and had it delivered yesterday.  Washed the 1st load today, and thought that someone was driving through our house when it went to the spin cycle.  Other than that, I am extremely happy with it......  Any help is appreciated, or it is going back.

It sounds like the machine is not balancing correctly. My guess is that if you operate the machine empty (no clothes inside) that it will operate fine. If so, then the machine is not balancing correctly.

Normally an error code should come up if there is a balance issue (UE error). If this code is not coming up then the machine thinks it is balanced when it really isn't. This means that either the hall sensor is sending out incorrect data or the main board is not interpreting the data correctly. A technician should be able to ohm out the hall sensor to see if it needs replaced or the main board.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

When my washer is on the last spin it is very loud, almost like it needs a muffler

You didn't say what model washer you have, but it sounds like you have a bad spin bearing. When bearing is bad it can be very noisey during spin, like a helicopter taking off. This means your washer needs a bearing and seals overhaul. This is generally a very expensive repair unless your washer is under some kind of warranty. The spin water seal has more than likely been slowly leaking, causing bearing to go bad.

If this sound starts slow and gets faster till its helicopter sounding you probly have a verry worn spot on the drive belt when that spot goes around the pully it will thump the faster ti spins the more frequent the sound If you tilt the washer back you should be able to see the belt to examine it if this the problem
replace the belt
Hope this helps

Loud noise during spin cycle and agitator won't rotate

the machine is nknown to have bad main seals, in turn leading to the corrosion of the spin bearing, in which case makes it sound as if a helicopter is landing in your laundry room
