This can be caused by a brake that has failed. Try to spin inner tub with washer off. It should NOT turn. If it turns the brake is bad and is allowing the tub to spin when agitating. This causes clthes to bunch up.

This problem can be attributed to any one of the following items:
1. Worn Clutch/Brake assembly.
2. Gearcase (transmission) starting to go bad.
3. Basket Drive assembly worn or loose.
The more common problem is a worn clutch assembly, but you can't always be sure. If the gearcase fails, a common tell tale sign is a light colored oil leaking from it. You will notice puddles under the washer and/or spray pattern marks along the interior walls of the casing. Sometimes these two problems are interrelated as oil leaking from the gearcase can cause the clutch or brake to slip.
The following link explains how to replace the gearcase assembly:
I'm not saying you have a bad gearcase at this point, but include this link because it gives information on how to remove the clutch/brake assembly. If you go to searspartdirect.com and type in your model number as "110.24902200" there are some very helpful drawings under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading. The gearcase is listed as item 9, the entire clutch/brake assembly is listed as item 5. The Basket Drive is listed as item 1.
This problem can often be hard to diagnose as any one of these components mentioned can cause a slow spin problem. I would recommend you remove the outer casing and do a visual inspection of the gearcase and clutch assembly (under the wash tub), first. Let me know what you find. I hope this gives you some guidance.
PS A basket drive failure will require you to remove the wash tub to replace. Since the basket drive penetrates through the bottom of the wash tub, it is recommended that you also replace the wash tub seal. Let me know what your preliminary findings are before we touch on this topic.

Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust? The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles. Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around. Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load. That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.
