There are three screws under the plate beneath the door. Remove these three screws and remove panel. Immediately you will see a removeable plug about 2 1/2" in diameter made of white plastic. This is where your problem lies (or at least one of them). CAUTION - before you remove this plug, put a bucket under it because water will come out. After you unscrew the plug completely, pull it out toward you. You will no doubt find many items that washed out of your cloths. I found legos and coins tangles up with strigs and lint. The entire area was completely plugged. The coins were probably the source af the stains we had on our cloths as they were all black from the water and soap.
The pump on mine burned out and I am trying to replace it. Then I will sell this junker.
I hope this helps some of you. Please advise.

It is doutful the basket or drum has warped. With such a loud thud and still doing it when you use the machine, it appears one of the balance springs or its mounting has broken loose. This will require opening the shell of the machine. Some models have a 3 point suspension, others have a 4 point suspension. This broken suspension point will account for the fact that you can spin the drum feely by hand yet it goes crazy when spinning with a load.
Because it is a front load unit, you must be careful or have a certain level of knowledge to open the unit and reclose it with the drum, seal, and facing all lining-up and not binding. As always, unplug the unit before taking it apart. Good Luck. Macgivor
