you have something jamming your water pump you may have to cleanout the pump and replace the motor coupling Well I'm going to do my best to fix your washer. First unplug the washer and turn off the water. If you have a shop vac take the drain hose out of the drain,and through the drain hose vacuum the water out of your washer. If you don't have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps . Then facing the washer locate the two screws. They will either be in the front or rear of the control panel and back them out far as you can. Once you have done that pull the control panel slightly forward, and tilt it back on the hinges. Now unplug the lid switch wire but don't forget to plug it back when your done. Next locate at the rear of the washer body the two gold clips then push forward, and take careful note of how they fit. Then pop them out with a screw driver tilt the washer body forward at 45 degree angel and walk forward with the body, and set it down. Now you will see the white pump and motor assembly. You should see two clips holding the pump to the motor pop them off, and pull the pump off the motor shaft. Now if you fell the need to remove the pump use the radiator hose clamp. take them and clamp the hose coming from the tub but its not necessary for the repair. Next disconnect the wiring harness from the motor (note the position of the harness for reassembly). Remove the two 5/16 inch screws from the motor clamps and pop the clamps off. Once that is complete, remove the motor put the new coupling on the motor and transmission shaft. I use a socket and a hammer

check for some loose items underneath the unit. washing machines normally reverses its rotation when spinning. check if mechanical solenoids pulls the right levers as it starts to spin....

Spin Shake is usually contributed to a weak floor support condition. Also, carpeting under the leveling legs can cause a "spongey" effect, which can produce the shakes. Prolonged shaking can cause parts to loosen and make noise.Firstly, we must determine what loosened up from all the shaking.
Remove the front panel by removing the 2-5/16" screws located at the bottom front. Pull out at the bottom to release the top retainer clips, and set aside.
Warning! Never reach inside the machine while it is in operation!
Investigate the cause of the noise by setting the washer to spin, and turn on. Inspect all moving parts for possible wear or breakage. Next, stop the machine and inspect for loose or worn suspension parts, nuts, bolts, struts, hoses banging the cabinet, etc. A protective motor cover can cause noise, or a belt slapping the base mount. Once you have conquered your noise issue, then we will have to eliminate the shakes, provided, what you repaired wasn't the cause...and usually isn't.
Carpeting under the leveling legs should be removed or cut away.
If other items in and around the laundry room shake, then you will need to add support to your floor joists. Shim the floor from under the house while the washer is spinning for best results.
Your installation instruction manual should tell how level the washer properly, after you have added support to your floor.
Good Luck! Post me back if can be of more assistance.
