    well everything, to me, looks good inside all the springs are attached old is I don't know I found it last week on the side of the road the switch under the lid was broken so the machine wasn't pumping the watter out so I fix it and I tried it yesterday but I guess I put to many heavy clothes like coats, jeans and a thick jacket so the machine when spinning was hitting the walls today I tried with a medium load and everything worked fine
    I found a yellow strap with two steel clips on it it is cut or broken, I don't know, in two pieces anyone have any idea for what is that ?
    Thanks for the answer!

It may have a broken suspension spring. These units sometimes rust out where the rear motor counterbalance spring goes to the frame. Tilt back and see if you see a spring running vertical from the frame inback on bottom near center, up to the mechanism. If it is rusted out, just drill new hole near old one and re-attach.
Also lift rear of washer 4 inches or more by tilting forward and setting back down. This will set the self leveling rear legs, if there not stuck. When you set it down it should not have any movement from corner to corner. Try pushing up and down on corners. It should be pretty steady.
Try reaching inside and moving inner tub back and forth. You should hear a splashing sound. This is the solution in balance ring in top of outer tub. If you don;t hear this it may have leaked out and may need to replace balance ring.
The other thing involves a bit of work. The snubbers may be worn out. How old is this unit?

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer wont balance

Your basket drive is grabbing. the only way to stop that is to locate the clutch and the tube directly above it is your basket drive put a little white lithium up there. but not in the clutch. this will solve that problem. But if you do not know what you are looking for this will be difficult to locate.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II spin cycle not functioning correctly

It sound like the basket is out of balance. When it spins open the lid and see if the basket is moving side to side and back to back. If so look under the deck and see if there is springs or rubber ties attached to the basket.

sounds like the basket drive. it is kind of a big need to take out the gear case and then the basket drive. you need a special tool to get it out. the agitator comes off forst there is a spanner nut that you must take off.
