If tub is banging around it could be dampers, but if it's a scrapping sound then something is caught in the inner tub and at hi speed it touches the outer tub.

Washer not spining Top loader part I

There are a couple of key parts in makeing the tub of the washing machine spin and here are some of the ways you can test whats wrong with your washer and why it is not spining. The most popular for all direct drive units is of course the drive couple which is the small plastic and rubber piece that attaches the motor to the transmission these tend to break more often then any other piece due to when made for manufacturers they do not have any metal on the three pronged connector nor in the center the replacement coupler does come with a metal washer in the center which prevents the actual spining stress caused on the piece to break the small arms that come off the connector. the best way to test for the coupler is by visual inspection so remove the cabinet, pump and motor and assure that the drive couple has not broken at all. if you need a video of how to replace the drive coupler click here

Another problematic area would be the clutch that is connected to the transmission. One of the easiest ways to check the clutch is to set the unit to spin with no clothes on the inside. While the unit is spining use the palm of your hand and press your palm against the inside wall of the inner tub if the tub slows or stops this would mean that the clutch is worn or defective and would need to be replaced. Here is also a video of how to replace the clutch click here
there are also other parts that cause the unit to spin such as the motor, transmission, and timer and these will be discussed in part 2 So look for Washer not spining Top loader part II Thanks again for using Fixya

My Washer Baskets is leaning to one side when washing and spinning

Hello penpoint1959 - The tub is stabilized in the center with multiple springs which attach to the base of the washing machine and the frame of the tub. If one of the spring(s) is loose or broken, this may result in the tub being off center. Other possibilities are, the unit is not level and the load of clothing is not balance evenly in the tub. I personally first verify that the unit is level and the unit is being loaded evenly. If correct, and if I was in your position I would contacting a certified technician to move forward accurately and to assist with the repairs.

Rotator seems to slip and only work part-time. Also tub won't drain.

ok first do you mean the agitator if this unit that we are talking about is a top load washer then you would most likely need to replace the agitator dogs here is also a video of how to replace the agitator dogs as well as to the tub not draining this would be most likely a clog where you would have to check the pump and the lines going to the pump as well to assure that there are no objects jammed in the the drain system here is a link showing how to replace the pump you would only do this if the impellar on the pump was not spining and you can actually remove the pump and see if the the impellar is spining which would tell you if your pump is good or not if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

My GE wjrr417og2ww the tub seems lose and with heavy loads the washer is making noise. Has a strut or spring come off?

make sure basket is tight to tub/ transmission (hub nut is not loose). remove front cover (two clips between front and top), use putty knife to release, pull forward at top then lift out. check mouting of hangers, also look at rubber straps between tub and frame at top (4). the straps limit tubs travel from hitting sides

My washer wont empty out while spining.

The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a small sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump. To remove it from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub and try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck
