there is a concrete block (a counter weight) inside the unit. maybe it fell off the bracket. remove back panel (after unplugging) and check it.

Hi Gerald, directly below the spring where it attaches to the basket suspension is a small hole, use a flash light to locate. If you get a chance, have you seen any dark metal shaving in the machine?

y shaped piece that contains the spindle that attatches to the basket and allows it to spin is corroded and cracking. you can't buy just the spindle bracket, you must buy the basket too. you'll be buying the front part of the drum too, if you wait to long.

Distribute the load of clothes when you put it in. Make sure they are balanced properly. If it's thumping during the spin cycle, stop it, open it up, move some clothes from the fuller side to the less full side, and see if that helps. Replace the springs inside the machine which suspend the washing drum. Open it up, take a look of it. Perhaps they're all saggy and this is permitting excessive vibration.
Put something under the machine to stop it from transmitting the vibrations to the floor of the house. An old sock folded several times and placed under each of the four feet may help. Rubber or foam will also work. Also, make certain the machine is level from front to back and side to side. Most washing machines have a large weight attached to the drum, usually a concrete block. It's supposed to prevent too much vibration. Check that one or more of the bolts holding it on haven't come loose.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
