Final spin making very loud noise vibrates with
Open the door and see if the basket has any up and down "play" in it. what you're doing here is checking the rear bearing assembly. There should be no "play"/movement (other than the entire tub assembly moving on the shocks/springs obviously). the rear bearing in any front load machine has practically zero tolerance. meaning it shouldn't knock when spinning, or have movement in the basket if you try to move it with an up & down motion.
If you DON'T have nay unwanted motion, make sure you are using the right detergent, that the unit is sitting level on all four feet/legs, and that the shock absorbers and springs on the tub aren't broke or seperated from the cabinet.
If you DO have unwanted motion/up & down play, you may want to consider a new washer, unless you have extended warranty or canet a could "used" one for parts.
Also check for any signs in the cabinet for pieces of concrete from the counterweight at the front.
At this point, before removing any parts/panels etc. **Unplug the unit from the wall**
You'll need to remove two screws at the bottom in the front to remove the lower panel for checking the shock's and counterwight, and remove the top to check the springs. There are two or three screws at the top in back to remove the top panel.
hope that helps,
Good Luck :)
