Check the vibration damper rods for firm mount, and also the springs at the bottom of the basin.

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Loud noise during spin cycle


Open the cabinet top and check along the sides for a broken or out-of-position damper. Shake the mechanism in several directions to help locate. Hope this helps!

The drum seems to bang the side of the machine when starting a spin cycle, the drum also seems to lean over slightly


This is usually caused by an unbalanced load. You will want to stop the machine ASAP when you hear the "banging" noise, and reposition the clothing or towels, whatever you have in the washer at the time, to create a balanced load. If this doesn't help, I would suggest calling a repairman.
