Question about Washing Machines
The model numbers are different in the U.S. so I am not sure if I can give you correct advise.
The only Whirlpool models I am aware of that use suspension rods are the Calypso and Cabrio. These are high effeciency topload washers. The symptoms you describe are fairly common in the Calypso after a few years use.
The springs inside the leveler break and cause little or no agitation. The viberation and spinning problem sounds like a worn drive tube. The excess wear in the shaft allows too much movement of the basket during spin which causes noise and out of balance conditions. This would be an expensive repair here and most people will usually replace the machine rather than repairing it.
I am going to be out all day, but will try to find some information on your model this evening and post back if I come up with better information.
