Question about Washing Machines
It is most likely a bad center bearing. Was it loud when it sup last? If it was then the bearings are going bad. If not spin the tub by hand and see if its stuck if it is work it back and forth and see if you can break it free. That is still a bad bearing. Also try spinning the basket by hand as fast as you can and see if the bearing sound like they are grinding or smooth. If the bearing seem ok then push down on the tub ring and try to push the tub and basket down it should take quite a bit a pressure to push the tub down is its easy and you can bounce the tub up and down it the washer like a basket ball then you need new support rod they keep the tub stable during spin and when the springs on these go bad they allow the tub to bounce during spin and that causes the unit to go out of balance and stops spinning.

Testimonial: "Thank you, it may be the support rod. It doesn't make any noise and it isn't stuck but I can push it down somewhat. Thank you for your help. The washer is about 7 years....is it worth fixing or would it be better to just get a new washer? This one came with my house, and I've had issues before."
