You can check the shocks to see if one broke but most likely the crosspiece in the rear of the tub is broken.using to much detergent can damage it and overloading the washer doesn't help.the extra detergent eats at the metal and the part discintegrates and then there's no support in the rear of the tub and the tub bangs around.the part is like two to two hundred and fifty dollars and that's not including labor,most likely it's time for a new washer. YouTube - Kenmore front load bearing 18 months and kaput! you can check this video out and see if this is what's happening to you,the crosspiece and spider gear are basicly the same part just a different name so i think they talk about the spider gear in the video.sorry about the info and good luck,watch the video that comes with your new washer,it will tell you how much detergent to use and make sure it's the H.E. detergent

We have a constant buzzing/whining noise when the TV is on.


Is it a whuring or buzzing sound? When color wheels go bad they can make a lot of mechanical nose, cooling fans can do the same but they do not spin as fast as a color wheel does

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
