smirkin, the question here is if the basket is listing against the tub or the whole tub and basket is listing. If the basket is listing and banging around it could be the drive block has worn or broken. I will attach a photo of one. If the whole tub is listing it could be a spring that broke. You can remove the front panel of the washer by pressing in on the two clips on each side of the washer top, The front panel should drop and pull out. You can see if any of the suspension sprins broke. The drive block is located under the basket. The agitator and basket have to be removed to change it out. Take a look at the attachments...Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Banging while spinning
slid the machine out away from the wall and tilt back enough to see underneath. just below the door there is a large concrete weight. chances are it is loose and needs to be tightened. if this problem has been going on for a while the bolts holding the weight on will have snaped and the drum/weight or both will need replacing .

First plug off the wall. Open the machine from behind to examine if any shock-absorbers(known as dampers) or springs have come off or broken. Your dealer could help with spares. But you could do the job yourself.

First of all, you do remove the a panel from the front.
On the inside floor of the machine, there were two "L" brackets with a hole for bolts, There were also two brackets on the bottom of the tub with similar holes. One pair was on the left bottom side and the other was on the bottom right.
It appeared that a bolt or some type of "dampening" connector was meant to go through to these holes. But there were no broken parts lying inside.That was my first "guess" for their purpose.
The left side (as facing the machine) "L" floor brackets and a tub bracket had been " bent" in such a way that that when the tub shook enough, the two brackets prevented the tub from moving too far. But not the pair on the right hand side. Go figure.
How it ever got this way or whether this was a "jury-rigged" solution at the factory (because they ran out of parts) is beyond me. Maybe the two brackets were meant to act as some form of "stop". But why were bent in such a fashion? And why only the ones on the left bottom side of the machine? I swear somebody bent them on purpose but that's me.
In any case, the tub had moved far enough that the bent tub bracket had slipped around the bent floor bracket. When ever the machine was on "wash" or "rinse" this "configuration" would bang against each other loudly. But it would not happen during the "spin" cycle.
I simply bent the two left hand side brackets back into a someone normal configuration (as with the bottom right floor and tub brackets) and put every thing back together. The banging sound was gone. However, you could still hear the brackets hitting each other on heavy loads. But it was not the "BOOM" I was getting before.
Eventually, the four rubber top corner "shock" springs will need replacing but at least things are quiet for the moment. But why or how the left bottom tob and floor brackets got so bent out of shape is beyond me. "Human intervention" or normal "wear and tear"?
