Question about Washing Machines
You have a bearing problem. The bearings can be removed, there are 2 bearings and 1 rubber seal plug. The tub can be removed from the washer and split into 2 pieces (rear portion and front portion), and the bearings removed using a large hammer and a pipe (put the pipe in the hole so it contacts the bearing and hit the pipe with the hammer, then flip over the tub and do the other bearing - there are videos on You tube). The bearing part number for this washer are TSB 6306-2RS-CTS (smaller bearing) and 6307-2RS-CTS (the larger one). These are sealed bearings, and can be ordered off ebay or a bearing store.

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

Wow! Mine also looks just like this - a large hole in the back of the spin basket. Same timing too - about 59 months for me. All of a sudden, during the spin cycle we heard a huge bang,...and then the banging continued. There is no way I'm spending $200 + labor to get his fixed. If the part is only going to last 5 years, then I may as well go ahead and get a new washer....and it definitely won't be this make or model!
