SOURCE: 5 yr old washer is leaking
Ellbee, remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel and lift it towards you. Two clips on the top that hold it will release. You can now get a good look at the pump. Catriver..post back.

its either the upper spin bearing or lower spin bearing. the upper can be replaced by itself but the lower requires the transmission the be replaced

this could be one of two problems.
The first which is fairly cheap to repair would be to check the carbon brushes in the motor, they may need replacing, especially if your washing comes out wetter then it should.
The second is the bearings on the drum which is more expensive to replace and would need to be done by an engineer.

For all those who say they recently bought the machine, the cause of the machine "walking across the floor" and vibrating violently is the packaging bolts on the back of the machine that were supposed to be removed when the machine was installed (why it says remove packaging bolts in the installation manual). These packaging bolts hold the suspension steady and firm during shipping but MUST be removed before operating the machine. When these packaging bolts (I think there are four total, some up to 6 inches long penetrate the rear of the machine) are removed, they allow the suspesion to absorb the vibration.

It sounds like you could have multiple issues but a possible cause of the vibrating right before the final spin is a broken shock absorber if one or both are gone it will throw off the center of gravity inside the machine and allow it to move freely and at high speed or even low speed this is not good. part number for both shocks is 134560400. If your machine just stops before the spin cycle and only drains, you could have a faulty door switch. the washer will not spin for safety reasons if this is gone. part number for the door lock switch is 131763245. as well the striker that hits this door switch can be broken and sometime pieces will be left inside the mechanism. part number for the striker is 134456640. The last cause of your washer not spinning could be a motor speed control board, if this is faulty, the motor will not receive the proper amperage to send the motor into spin cycle. speed control board part number is 134409904. Hope this helps.
