When machine is at end of spin, the drum vibrates and makes thumping noises as though clothing is not evenly distributed. Does this even when machine does not have cloths inside.
Also noticed small spot of oil on floor under machine.
What could be cause of drum going out of balance at end of spin? and the oil on floor same problem or new problem.
I have the same problem. One of the two piston Shock absorbers (P/N 131268200) has broken. How do I remove the white plastic pin that holds the shock in place? The hollow pin is about two inches long with a slit down one side and looks like a six sided nut on the top.

Those parts you can check 1/ strings holding the drum were broken causing drum unbalancing when it spins. 2/ Drum bearing also gone. (noise) 3/ 3 slides that located underneath the triangle frame need replaced.
. according to your washer problem i m writing solution ,please read and follow it:-
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
check out this following options one by one to locate the fault in your machine.
1)Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.2)Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)3)Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.4)Clear thewater pumpfrom obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.5)Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.6)Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
Inspect the outer drum to see if one of your springs has popped off.
You can also inspect the lower drum area to see if your vibration
dampener has worn out or broken free. Also you may need to check your
rear bearing just between the large pulley and the drom to make sure is
hasn't separated from it's mount.
My guess is that one of the three counterweights have separated from their support. Probably rusted away. 36 years is quite a feat. Today's machines would be lucky to 1/3 of that life. Sounds like its time to go shopping. Do you have an anniversary coming up? Ladies love washers for an anniversary gift.
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.
it could be the break above the transmission. it engages what looks like break shoes when the machine is not spinning. if these are worn down to the rivets then it will make this noise. it requires a special tool to replace.
