From the top access ,
check the suspension out like you would a car,
move the drum up and down and sideways ,
it should resist and settle w/o bounce,
the springs should be tight.
the placement of the marks will give you an indication as to which opposite arm or spring is weak.

My speed queen wash properly it drain properly but when it come to spin it go very very slow and it make like jurking movements

Some times the clothing will be piled up mostly at one side of the drum after the completion of the washing/draining cycle. This is normal. When the drum starts spinning/rotating to dry the clothing it is unbalanced and the drum will then not reach high speed due its banging against the outer casing which will also cause the jurking movement. Rearrange the clothing inside the drum by spreading it evenly around the agitator. If this does not solve the problem the machine might be seriously overloaded ( too much clothing). Take some clothing out and see if its is better. If it still persist then open up the front panel by unscrewing the three screws at the bottom of the panel and lifting the panel up and out. Please disconnect the electrical power supply first. Look inside the machine for the van belt between the electric motor and the big pulley underneath the drum. Check the condition of this belt as it might need to be replaced. ( badly worn over all, inner rubber area cracked badly, rough sides ect). TAKE NOTE: Replace with genuine Speed Queen part as a normal vehicle v-belt will not work. Pressing against the belt will be a small pulley attached to a swing arm under tension of a spring. Slight shortening of the spring might help but only as last resort.

My kenmore 417 wahser making too much noise, it looks like the inner tub hitting the outer plastic housing. How can I fix it?

Have you tried moving the clothes around in the drum to balance the drum BEFORE you was them? If that works, you have solved the problem! Most people forget that when cloth gets wet it gets heavy so leaving the clothes unevenly placed in the drum dry will make a real problem when they get wet!

Whirlpool Duet Washer Model WFW9400SZ00 bangs only during spin cycle.

Yes you are exactly right, these bearings have failed & are causing the noise very common problem with whirlpool front loaders. very expensive to repair worth while looking into replacing instead of repairing as it will just happen again.The new LG machines are the best in my opinion.

I have a frigidaire gallery front load washer need help

Run the machine on a cycle with no load in it (no soap powder either)

If it makes the same noise when there are no clothes in it then the suspension legs have given way or the counterweight has come loose.
You will need someone who knows what they are doing to repair it
