This is a common symptom of what happens
when the rear drum bearing starts to go bad, or when the inner spin basket supports break. You can tell if you have a problem by reaching inside the drum and placing your hand at the 12 o'clock position and push up and release. If the drum wobbles, you either have a bad bearing or one of the support arms on the back of the spin basket has cracked or broken. The only way to tell is to disassemble the unit and pull the basket to inspect. In either case, this can be a very expensive repair. Especially, if it done by a professional. Cost estimates can exceed $1000 for parts and labor. If you wish to accomplish this repair yourself, parts are still expensive and it is labor intensive (usually a 2 to 3 hour repair if done by a professional). I do have the instructions required to complete the job, and a list of parts you may need if you are interested. I would first contact the manufacturer to see if there are any recalls or extended warranties that cover this problem. I have seen this problem quite a bit, but its usually more common with the smaller front loader models. I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Let me know what you decide.
